DH and I will be attending a formal event with his family in June. MIL and I were talking about needing to go buy dresses. She suggested that we go together, she wanted my input in finding a dress. I am happy to go with her, we will make a day of it, shopping and lunch.
However, when it comes to finding MY dress, I would rather go alone. I love my MIL dearly, I really do. But, her taste and my taste are wildly different. That coupled with the fact that she is not the complimentary type of person, makes me certain that I would come home feeling defeated instead of elated.
I am looking for a kind way to let her know that I would rather shop on my own for my dress. I don't want to hurt her feelings, I am very close to my in laws.
