My mother and I went shopping today for her MOB dress. She bought a dress that was very simple, but that she felt extremely comfortable in. Everything else we tried on was too flashy for her taste. The only thing that worries me a little bit is that the dress she chose was black. the jacket she chose to go with it is black with a white trim. At first, I didn’t think anything of it.. it’s a beautiful dress and she looks stunning in it. When we told my father the color of the dress though… he said.. “more of a funeral color don’t you think?”
What are your opinons bees? My mother loves my Fiance dearly so I doubt anyone would think she was pulling the mourning card… but do you think black is okay to wear?

I dont see anything wrong with it. It has a bit of white which will brighten it up and she can alaways wear a bit of colour in her jewelry and or shoes if you guys are worried about it looking too dark.
The only time id worry about black at a wedding was if everyone was in black….the odd person won’t matter )

Sounds like a great dress. And the rest doesn’t/shouldn’t matter.

Black will be just fine. It’s great that she will feel comfortable and beautiful as the MOB!

Black is absolutely ok. It’s classic, flattering. If it wasn’t we wouldn’t have the little black dress. 🙂

Both my mother and my FI’s mother will be in black. Don’t worry about it!

My mom’s wearing black! And I LOVE her dress, couldn’t be happier with the pick. She’ll look classy and beautiful, and you’ll be happy that you don’t have a mom who buys an ugly dress just because it’s in your “colors”. 🙂

I wouldn’t worry a second more about it – she’s comfy which means she’ll be happier and lighten up the dress with her mood 🙂 Black is totally fine!

As long as she’s happy and smiling, it won’t look like a funeral.

thanks bees, I really appreciate the positive comments. I know I was silly for being worried about something so small. I just don’t want other to be looking down on her for wearing a certain color. But I guess even if they did, who cares right? She’ll be happy and I’ll be happy.
