    Sorry you are dealing with so much stress!  I voted for compromise.  I think you might regret it later if she doesn’t walk down the aisle with you, but the dress your mom picked sounds really over the top for an afternoon wedding. Hopefully you can find a dress you both like.

    So I totally went to Cache’s site to look at the dress…and holy cow, if my mother showed up to walk me down the aisle in that I’d have a hissy fit! My wedding is in the evening and I want her in a long dress as well (she really is walking me down the aisle) but that? no. freakin’ way. I’d say get another dress or dad walks me down.

    Wow…just wow. I understand that your mom was fighting for life, but seriously, this is YOUR wedding, not hers! She can have a party of her own and wear that dress if she wants, but she should not have that much leeway.  I am still shocked over how many brides are having to fight with other female relatives over whose day it is – come on now!!

    I also voted for compronise, I think your mom should feel beautiful when she walks down the aisle, but not overshadow the bride

    Your dress is a ballgown – it’s pretty hard to overshadow that.
