I’m actually posting this to help out my mom. She ordered a beautiful dress for my wedding, which we had picked out together. The only thing is it’s black, which I told her was absolutely fine since I thought she looked so pretty in the black that I actually encouraged it over the blue color she was originally planning on ordering it in.
However, my mom has started having second thoughts…thinking that people at the wedding may take her wearing black the wrong way. I’ve told her not to worry, that everyone will see how much she likes my fiance and how happy she is and know it has nothing to do with “mourning”. Did any of your Mom’s wear black? Did people seem to have an issue with it? I just want to give her a few tidbits so she can stop stressing and thought you girls could help.

Could she wear some extra glitzy jewlrey to “dress it up” and make it look not somber? Or add a colorful scarf?

I went to a wedding where both the mother of the bride and the mother of the groom wore black dresses, MOB had a white faux fur shawl on and MOG had a little jacket that had ‘sleeves’ that were like a knit so it had a nice design with holes, I don’t know how else to describe it haha, but they both looked really stylish and cute

At my cousins wedding (My aunt was the MOG) she wore all black but it had some rhinestones around the edges so it made it a little festive =)
Does your moms dress have anything like that?
I think black is fine!!!! As long as she is having fun =)

Thanks ladies! I share with my mom that yes, other mom’s have done this and no one seemed to think it was weird. Her dress has touches of rhinestones on the sleeve cuffs and waist of the dress so I think it will be perfect with just a touch more sparkle from jewelry.

She’s fine. It isn’t what it used to be and many MOB’s are wearing black these days. I did for one wedding, and for the other wore chocolate brown.

Both of our moms wore black. Both of their outfits were *sparkly* and very fitting with the evening wedding.

I would say buy her a pashmina that matches your wedding color scheme
