Umm.. Ok that is a bit bizarre if you have a good relationship with her I would tell her that u would rather another color for her to wear or tell your FI to tell her

I do think you’re overreacting. You said she could order any dress she liked, and it looks like she did. The best thing to do might be nothing at all. 

I think the color and style are fine.

Too late now, she’s already ordered the dress. You can be disappointed but you said anything they liked, that’s happened. Move on.

Agree that there is nothing you can do.  I don’t think it will look horrible with eggplant… plus she is only in a few pictures with the bridesmaids (the ones with all the family).  Wouldn’t worry about it.

I don’t think you need to handle anything. You told her to order whatever she wanted and she did. She won’t be in many (if any at all) pictures with the BMs so I wouldn’t worry about how those two colors go together.

Eta: I actually really like the way red and purple look together so I don’t think the dresses will clash.

how many pictures are really going too have your bridesmaids and your fmil in them together? Probably not many, it really won’t matter. I don’t think I had any but the family pictures.

you told her to pick what she wanted, so I don’t think there is much you can say about it now. Besides, she won’t be in many pics with the bridesmaids, maybe just one of the whole bridal party. i wouldn’t worry about it so much.

You told her to pick whatever color. Not only that but she isn’t going to be in every photo anyway, so I wouldn’t make it a big deal.

I actually think that red will look very pretty with blue and purple.

You told her to pick whatever she wanted and she did. Its time to move on.

Its hard for people to meet your expectations when you don’t articulate them in any way, shape, or form.

You told her to pick what she liked, she did. This is your own fault.

You shouldn’t tell people to wear what they like and assume they will still ask you if it’s “okay” to wear something.

She won’t be in every photo anyway.

MrsS_to_be:  I think it’s a gorgeous dress!! I wouldn’t say anything at all. You told her she could pick what she wants.

I’m of the mind that grown women can dress themselves and are the best judge of what color looks best in them. You said they could wear what they like. And are they part of the bridal party. I personally think it’s silly to ask older women to dress alike.
