I think it’s really cute! What kind of fabric is it? Are you having a very formal wedding? All of that can play into if you feel like it would fit what she should be wearing.

I think it depends on her age and your wedding itself. Is it cotton with eyelet? For me, it looks young and not something I’d wear, but if she’s young and it goes with your wedding, why not? What color?

I love it! I think that if she pairs it with some heels and nice jewelry, it will look great! I wouldn’t say anything to her about it – especially if you think it would cause drama!

I like the style, but the cotton material would definitely make it informal. maybe something like this would make her feel comfortable, but still be in a formal material http://www.siriinc.com/mb-9455.html  they also have several dresses that have the same sort of top/neck design but with sleeves.

I would just say, I really like the design, but I’m worried that the cotton material would look too informal, and as one of the special people on that day I want you to feel special too… or something like that. Could you go shopping with her? and steer her into something more appropriate? maybe go to a higher end store and explain that you’re looking for a Mother of the Groom dress and they will be quick to steer you in the right direction, and keep you from looking like the bad guy.

I think it’s pretty and just fine for a wedding unless you are having some sort of black tie event.

I’m not sure if that link is working, my computer doesn’t like it, but here’s the dress info.

I love the dress, BUT I also think it might be a bit too informal for what you described as your wedding attire.

What is your mother wearing?

I’m guessing since she sent you the picture of it,she wants your opinion about it. Knowing about your dress and the tuxes isn’t sinking in for her,so maybe you can send her some pics of other options that you like. I was going to also ask about your Mom’s dress to show her, but I see that isn’t happening. Even tho your Aunt doesn’t have her dress yet,will she be leaning in a different direction (more on the formal side)? Can you go shopping with her?
