My Dearest Mother In law,

You are really the one whom I was actually looking for in my life.

I found the mother in you. I did not find any difference between you and my mother who gave birth to me. You are affectionate, loving, and caring like my mother and never seem to be complaining about anything. You are more of a precious gift to me. What could I have asked for from God! He has fulfilled my expectations. I have a wonderful husband and an adorable mother-in-law.  

I must confess about myself that I am actually not a good cook. I could not learn many things in my father’s place. 

I had been staying on the hostel premises for some years and I had been depending on food whatever was given to me. So, I never learned to cook. I know that it will be a bit difficult for my husband to adjust to me. But I am confident that you will help me out in teaching me to make favorite recipes for [mention your husband’s name]. But I am quiet in washing clothes and I will not give any opportunity to complain about it.  

I would be requesting you to bear with me. I will learn things. I will improve and make everyone happy as a wife and daughter-in-law. 

From your loving Daughter in law,

[mention your name].

Letter To Mother-In-Law Wedding Day

Dear mother,

I still feel it to be unbelievable that soon I am going to be your daughter-in-law, mother! It just feels like yesterday that [mention the name of your would-be-husband] introduced me to you and who would have known that you would accept me as soon as upon seeing.

To be honest, on the day of [mention the name of some festival like Christmas or Thanksgiving], I was really nervous that what will I be telling you on seeing, whether you will like me, whether you will be able to accept me as your daughter-in-law, but what I least expected is you liking me right on the first day.

As you have already seen, I am a bit introverted and socially awkward but then I never expected that you will understand me and be patient with me. You gave me time to open up, to talk freely with you and dad. I am not good at so many things but then you accepted me with all my imperfections and I am glad that such a great lady like you is going to be my mother-in-law. You are sweet, supportive, kind and so cheerful. I hope to learn a lot from you.

Soon, the waiting is going to come to an end and I will be officially your daughter-in-law. I promise to keep not just your son happy but I also promise to take care of you as well as dad.

I will make sure that I become the kind of daughter-in-law that you will be proud of and for that, I will do everything. All I want in return is for you to keep having your faith in me and loving me as you always did.

Love you,

[mention your name]

Letter To Mother-In-Law On Wedding Day

Dear mother,

I am so excited mother that I will be your daughter-in-law, officially, right from today! You don’t know for how long I have waited for this day. I never imagined that I will be getting such a perfect family.

I have always thought that I can’t love anyone more than my parents and [mention the name of your would-be-husband] but then I met you guys and you were everything that I expected. A loving, caring, and supportive mother-in-law like you, who loves me as her own daughter is no less than my own mother. We had such fun times shopping together, going to movies whenever your son couldn’t make it, and we bonded so well.

When your son used to talk to me about you, back in our college days, I always used to think whether you will really like me. He loves you a lot and wanted me to win your heart and I prepared for it too [laughs] but what I didn’t know is that I wouldn’t have to do anything and you will always understand me so well.

You even supported me the time when [mention the name of your would-be-husband] and I was engaged in a massive fight and I was almost on the verge of leaving him. You stood by me always and never misunderstood me. You did not just make me understand and talked to him about me but you also handled the situation so well. I have to be the luckiest daughter-in-law in the whole world.

I hope that you will keep on loving me and supporting me like you always do and I too will be looking after the entire family and will always make you guys happy.

Love you mother,

[mention your name]

Dear mother,

I am glad I will be your daughter-in-law, mother. I keep looking forward to a happy married life and with [mention the name of your would-be-husband], and you I am sure that I will never be alone or ever feel sad.

I have never seen my parents. Like you know, losing my parents in a car accident when I was [mention the age], I had grown up in the care of my foster parents who couldn’t really accept me as their own daughter ever. I never believed that I will be getting so much love, that I will be lucky enough to meet your son, that my destiny will make me his wife someday.

You never made me realize that I am your son’s girlfriend; you are everything that I yearned for. It will be no less than an honor to be your daughter-in-law and I will be truly happy to look after you always.

I can’t even wait a few more minutes to start staying with you forever, to start my happy, blissful married life along with your son and you. I will not be letting you do anything and I will always make sure that you are taken care of well and looked after well.

Today, I promise that [mention the name of your would-be-husband] and I will never go away from you, ever.

Love you so much, mother,

Letter To Thank Mother-In-Law On Wedding Day

Dear mother,

I thank you from the very core of my heart mother for giving me such an amazing gift, the love of my life, your son to me. I truly thank you for raising him as an honest, compassionate, caring, and supportive man. I seriously cannot ask you for more.

He is an extraordinary person but then so is you, the lady with so much love, talent, and care. I don’t think I will ever be able to be like you, even if I try being like you, it’s impossible. I am truly fortunate that you are going to be my mother-in-law. Trust me mother, ever since I met you, I have admired you, and you have shown me what it’s to be like to be a strong yet heartwarming woman.

I have heard so much about you from your son that what you went through to raise him when he was a child, how hard was life back then when you and his father went for a mutual divorce. I can’t even imagine, but then I can understand you, being a woman and I truly appreciate that you trusted me with your son’s happiness and responsibility for a lifetime. Your kindness and simple nature inspire me every day to become a better person in life and I guess you have turned into my role model.

Again, I thank you for accepting me and allowing me to enter your loving small family. Without your constant guidance and support, it would not have been possible for us to come this far.

You have really played a significant role in my love life where from my boyfriend’s mother you turned into my own mother and starting from this day, I look forward to a happy married life with your son and you.

Love you,

[mention your name]
