So my mom has found a dress she absolutely loves. I’m super happy for her and I want her to be happy so I “approved” her dress choice last week. I just had my first dress fitting and I sent her a pic and she asked me if I thought the dresses would be seen as being too similar…. They do have the same silhouette and now not I’m not sure how I feel about it. I the thought didn’t cross my mind until she said it and now I can’t stop thinking about it.
My Mom wants me to be happy and is asking me if I’m okay with it and I want her to be happy so I am trying to see past it. But do you think it’s a big deal? I mean I KNOW I’ll be the one in white so it’s obvious that I’m the bride…. But idk…

Possibly she should be wearing a wrap across her shoulders, but I can’t see it as a problem.

That’s beautiful!! It super reminds me of my mom’s MOB dress! I think she should totally wear it!

I think both dresses are gorgeous, but I don’t think they are too similar.

I definitely do not think the dresses are too similar. However, if it bothers you, I would tell her you prefer that she chooses a different dress.

I think it is fine, and not too close, at all. The silhouette is really the only similarity. If it was lace or sweetheart too, that would be another story, but it isn’t 🙂
Suggest a pretty shawl if it keeps bothering you, but you have NOTHING to worry about – you are stunning in your dress!

the ONLY thing similar about them is that they are strapless mermaid style dresses. That’s it, I don’t see the problem

I think there will be a lot of guests in mermaid shaped gowns if they are wearing long dresses. Having the same silohette doesn’t make them the same. The neckline, middle, and bottom all seem very different.

You yourself said you didn’t even notice the similarities till your mother mentioned it. Your guests won’t notice either. Maybe just ask your mom not to mention it!

It doesn’t need a shawl, it’s a great dress, and it’s nothing like yours. You both look beautiful.
Why is it that so many people think a woman needs to cover up as a mother of the bride? I don’t see why those jacketed dresses are the only option for some people. She looks great, she feels great, that should be the end of story. No one tells a bride she should be covering her arms.

The dresses do have similar silhouettes but I think they’re different enough to be worn together. The fabric difference is a big offset from the two, so it shouldn’t be a problem if she wears that dress.
