I personally don’t care about this, but I’ve read lots of other posts that MOB’s and MOBs will be judged badly depending on what they wear to the wedding (too showy, competitive, attention grabbing). I don’t want guests at my wedding to judge my mom based on her dress or to think that I’m bothered by it.
I tried to subtly hint that maybe it wasn’t the best choice, but she bought it anyway. Should I say/do anything else or just let it go?
I’m wearing the Maggie Sottero Lorie in light ivory. I’ll wear the detachable sleeves for at least part of the night.
This is the dress my mom bought.

@CoCoCourtney: I do think it’s a little off-putting just because it’s a “bridal” color. But it’s not floor length or anything that’s too much so I think she’ll be fine. Who cares if anyone else has a problem with it? As long as you don’t that’s all that matters.

I like it. Dresses like that compliment the bridal gown well.
I would let it go. What other people think doesn’t really matter.

@CoCoCourtney: I think it is very close in color and pattern to your dress (the lace-like feel of her dress) but if you and your mom are close, and you dont care then- then yay! Sometimes people will percieve it as show offy- if they know the bride and MOB are not close. If your close theyll probably see it as sweet that you and your mom selected something similar.
All in all, if it doesnt bother you than it doesnt matter what anyone else thinks. If it does bother you, say something.

I’m sure itll be fine–No one’s going to mistake her for the bride! And it doesn’t look terrifyingly short or anything!

@CoCoCourtney: Is it white as well? Sometimes it’s hard to tell but on my screen it appears white. To me it looks like an elopement dress, rehearsal dress or possibly reception dress. Dont get me wrong it’s a lovely dress but it does not to me look like MOB dress. To be honest, if I were at a wedding I’d certainly wonder of all the dresses available why the mother would choose this dress….. Again that’s JMO.
If you don’t care thou…… don’t worry about what others think…… But since you were asking for opinions just wanted to give you my honest thoughts!

I think it’s pretty! I wouldn’t worry about the color.

Thanks for all the honest opinions! It’s a little darker in real life, and she is planning on getting a pashmina scarf or something to wear also so I’ll suggest she add some color or black there.

If it is champagne, it is a color worn by many MOB’s.
