I am sad today. It seems these mothers cannot get together and agree on dresses.
My bridesmaids are wearing deep burgundy. My mom and I chose a pretty deep purple from the Mon Cheri Montague collection to wear, in an eggplant color. The bridal shop agreed it would be beautiful for her to wear.
Now the grooms mother doesn’t event want to attempt to coordinate. She says the colors do not match, they clash and she is wearing beige , dusty rose or ivory, like grooms mother’s should wear.
Did we choose the wrong color for my mom? We love it, but maybe we should find another dress.

I think the mom’s can wear whatever they want to wear. I’d just let it go and let her pick something that she’s comfortable in and feels pretty in.

I agree with livvie. I think this is a "choose your battles wisely" situation.

Relax! It’s more important that everyone looks good and feels comfortable. Besides, it sounds like the colors your FMIL is considering will be neutral and complementary.

Thank you for your help. I guess there is nothing one can do about a lightly colored dress that will stick out like a sore thumb against the rest of the dark fall seasonal theme in hues of burgundy, cranberry and plum decorated with seasonal flowers like the sunflower, pom mums and roses in vibrant oranges, yellows, maroons with cattails. My photographer says it will wash out the rest of the bridal party and something darker neutral or coffee should have been chosen. I hope it doesnt’ ruin my wedding pictures.

You’re likely only going to have a couple shots with the entire bridal party and the entire family, so I don’t think it will ruin the wedding pictures by any means.

If you love your mom’s dress.. stick. I don’t think the MOG is very important… what does she do? Walk down the aisle… shes in a few pictures… but really… that’s it.
Let her be snarky, and buy your mom the dress she likes best!

i don’t really think it’s necessary for them to match. let her wear what she wants.
