@CandieC88:  do you have time to take her shopping? maybe if you are with her you can steer her away from the ones you think are inappropriate. 

davids bridal has a section on their website for “mothers and special guests” – maybe see if you and your mom can agree on something you both like? At least those dresses would likely be formal enough and not too short.

@CandieC88:  I agree with the above commenter! Go shopping with her! Thats what I did with my mum. She was worried that whatever she would buy wouldn’t mesh witht he wedding, but I knew she would be okay. It was a great bonding experience.

I would definitely say our styles are different but she and i both know what looks good on us so as long as you both can relax a little you should be able to work through it. If she is choosing something too short too tight, maybe you could show her a pic of what your future mother in law is wearing.

And yes a LBD is always a good option too!

I put my mom in a conservative LBD.  I think it was actually a Jasmine dress.  It is knee length and has pencil skirt shape so it shows off her rockin’ figure yet it covers everything.  I love it.

This is a big day for your mom too.  I think you should let her wear what she wants.  After all, all eyes will be on you, not her.  People will know who picked it out.

ETA: in response to your last reply, it sounds like she is just planning to wear what she wants anyway.  She just wants your blessing.
