    Honestly, I wouldn’t be cool with it.  Unless it was a very dark beige where she clearly didn’t look like she was in a bridal color.  If its close in color to your dress, I think it’s fair to nicely ask her to pick something a bit darker or in another color.

    Your wedding is about so much more then what colour suit your mother is wearing. try to remember what the day is really about. I feel like brides stress so much about small details and complete forget about why they having a wedding and what its all about.

    Well if you are ok with it, then I wouldn’t worry about it.  It is a suit as opposed to a dress.  No one will confuse who the bride is!  My only other suggestion would be if she is able to use the suit for other events, then I think it would be ok to discuss an alternative outfit for her to wear to your wedding.

    If you are fine with it then it is fine!

    I was watching Father of the Bride the other day and the mom in that movie wore an off-white suit and I thought it was weird but it looked really nice! So I am sure this was the thing to do at one point in time.

    Look at this way – She is wearing a suit NOT a gown – no one is going to mistake her for the bride!

    As long as you and your mom are ok with it that is all that matters!

    It’s completely up to you…  but it wouldn’t honestly bother me.  A friend of mine has a white cotton outfit that he wears when he visits his guru and is a special outfit for him.  He’s asked if he could wear it to our wedding.  I told him to go for it.  It has special meaning to him, I’m honored that he would consider my wedding an equally sacred occassion as visiting his guru and, most importantly, it’s just clothing!  No one is going to confuse him as the bride, nor do I think anyone will confuse your mom in an off-white suit as the bride.
