Go with the blue one.  Most people at the wedding won’t know ahead of time what the bm dresses are so there will probably be other blue dresses there . . . but surely nobody else should come in white (or close to it)!

go with the blue! i can guarantee you won’t be the only person there wearing blue, especially light blue if it’s a spring wedding.

if you are close enough to your FSIL ask her. she might rather you wear the grey than look like her bms, depending on the style of their dress? but #1 i’d say if youre worried at all it *might* look white, don’t wear it.

I don’t think there is anything wrong with a grey dress, myself. Grey is not white! Even white with a pattern is usually ok – just don’t wear an all white dress 😉

Get whichever dress you’d rather – it’s ok to wear grey, and it’s ok to wear a similar colour to the BM’s. Just don’t jump in the formal BP pics, hehe

I would go with the one you like the most.  Honestly, speaking as a bride, a guest would have to wearing a wedding dress or nothing at all to get my attention on that stressful day!

According to The Knot, grey is the new brown (whatever that means).  I’m pretty sure it means that its not white.  I know for sure that when I told my mom I thought I wanted a pearl grey wedding dress, she was damn sure that wasn’t white, or anything like it.  I think you’re good with either dress.

How about the grey dress w/ some accessory?  Such as a colorful brooch, a sash, or maybe a Pashmina wrap in a different color?

i’d run it by FSIL…you dont want to get on her bad side, you will be stuck with her for life.

 to err on the side of caution, i’d go with the blue.

I think you’d be ok with the grey one, I think as long as it is not provocative or too revealing you should be fine cause that would be one of my concerns.  I also agree it might be a good idea to ask FSIL.
