We actually chose my mom’s dress to compliment mine and pick up some of the details.  It has similar beading and a broach kind of thing on the side with ruching coming off.  Hers has the exact same detail.  I think that’s great.  It will make her feel special and more included, since she can’t wear a bridesmaids dress.  And honestly, no one else will notice. 🙂

Beading and ruching in those areas are really in style right now. It might be hard for her to find something without it and I honestly don’t think anyone will notice unless her dress is remarkably similar to yours in other ways as well.

I think the mom of the bride can wear anything she wants, i dont think she has to struggle to find something different from the bridesmaids and different from the bride.. etc, if she is happy with the dress I would just let her wear it. My moms dress has alot more beading and bling than mine.. doesnt bother me in the slightest

Honestly, I think they look GREAT together.  Think of how they will compliment each other in the pictures!  Your dress has much more detailing and the straps on her set it apart from yours.

I agree with your sister & think you’re being too critical.  The only thing those dresses have in common is the beading at the natural waist and that’s it, they look nothing alike.

Honestly the only similarity I see is the broach/sash.  Your dress is stunning and I don’t think anyone would think they would look too much alike.  Don’t worry!

I have to say I just don’t see the similarity between the two dresses. Please don’t say something to hurt her feelings over this, it just isn’t worth it.

Now after seeing the picture,  I definitely dont see the issue here at all.  Her dress doesnt look like yours at all.

i see the similarties but they are different. I think it compliments your dress more than anything – if she loves it i say let her do it.

your dress is beautiful! and you will def stand out.
