    Or maybe can tell her that you both need something else for the wedding that she can sponsor so she won't spend so much on the gold pieces? she will still feel you are accepting her goodwill and it can also be channeled into something you both will need more than the gold? you are also very sweet to your MIL

    My mom told me something. She says that in olden grandma's days, old people like to buy big big gold necklaces or bangles or whatever gold-ish. So, when the bride serve tea to the mother in law, people will look forward to see what will the mother in law give to the bride.

    Hahas...

    But well, i dont think i will wan her to sponsor other thing else la. Wedding is not about how grand. Just spend within our means loh. The most important thing is the life after marriage. Because it is gonna be the new chapter of life.

    And... yes. I love my Mother In Law. I treat her just like my own mother. I fetch her from work whenever I'm free. I dine with her even tho my HTB is not around.

    cheesecake I dun think you can run away from this gold thingy la. Your MIL really wants to get you something for your wedding.

    wat you can do best I think is to go and pick a set of gold she request la but you pick those cheaper range one lor.

    Or if not.... to pull it longer... tell her you will go look around yourself and when you see wat you like then you tell her lor. but hor you have to go see one leh and check out the price before you tell her wat you want.

    Then, she is the one who tell the salesgirl "this design. one set."
    Urgh!!!!

    And yea, she havent buy becos i stop her. But she is monitoring the gold price everyday. Last night she still ask me "how come nowadays news on TV never announce gold price huh???"

    I think i will wanna offer her a token, so that she can use the money to dress up for my wedding day. Probably tell her tt i'd just got bonus or whatever nonsense that i could think of.

    Maybe minimum about S$500. Do you guys think it is enough for her to doll herself?

    I'm not only nice to her. If i giv her S$500 to doll up, i will also giv my mom the equivalent amount to doll up too.

    See! Getting married is so expensive

    It's a once in a life-time thingy! I want to look pretty and I want my mum/MIL to be pretty too! Especially my mum cos she seldom doll up. So im getting the MUA to have her makeup and hair done as well!

    Also, I guess its normal that ur MIL will bring you out to get jewelry. That's the practice of my HTB's family as well. Maybe she's just extra nice and generous with you because she only got one son? Or she just like u la! As compared to ur HTB's previous gf, etc
