What Is the Way to Welcome a New Daughter-In-Law?

Make a new daughter-in-law feel welcome to the family by including her in family outings, photographs and activities. Including her as part of the family helps her feel comfortable and eases any fears that she is an outsider to the family.

Some families prefer to write a letter to the new daughter-in-law and share it at the wedding. The letter includes fun anecdotes and sentiments that let the new bride know the family loves her and wants to form a lasting relationship with the woman their son loves.

The key to welcoming a new daughter-in-law is to avoid competing with her and instead work to form a relationship with her. Let her know you appreciate her and trust her by going on lunch dates or shopping trips together.
