That would get on my nerves, too 🙁 Try not to dwell on it. The wedding is over and now you are married to the man you picked 🙂 I hope the relationship with your MIL improves from here.

I’m sorry she did that behind your back and that she said that to you, however I can tell you from looking at that picture it looks to me like her dress is light blue. Alas, nothing you can do about it now, some people just have to cause drama!

@cseyler:  If it makes you feel better, her dress does not look white. Furthermore, it was she who looked foolish wearing white that day.

Have you spoken to your DH about this? Maybe she is having a hard time letting go. Either way, continue to be the bigger person.

That doesn’t hit me as a white dress at all!

The only thing I noticed about your picture that was “off” was her face. She looks annoyed and maybe bored? Certainly not happy.

@cseyler:  Sorry she was so rude. Her dress looks more like that cauliflouwer blue in the crayon box than white, so I don’t think anyone mistook her for the bride or thought she was wearing white. I just found it odd she wasn’t really smiling, but maybe that’s the way she smiled.

I think it’s  inappropriate for you to share her picture on this website without her consent.  Her dress looks like a very pale blue to me.  Skipping out on the hair and the pregnant comment were extremely rude, though.

You looked amazing on your wedding day, btw!

@cseyler:  Sorry she said that to you! You look slender and not even the least bit pregnant. But at first glance I thought her dress was gray… not at all white.

I’d be upset too and just so you know, you’re not crazy – as far as I’m concerned, that’s a white dress.  I guess all you can do is take a deep breath and extend an olive branch and hope for the best.  Sometimes weddings bring out the crazy in moms!

Whether or not the dress “looks” white isn’t really the issue. She knew how you felt and disrespected your feelings anyway. That’s really sad, honestly. And her comment to you about “looking pregnant” is just terrible. (No offence to the beautiful ladies who are actually pregnant, of course!)

Since you say this is the first time you’ve had problems, is there any chance it could be chalked up to high emotion (the comment, not the dress) and not thinking before speaking? Sometimes people say the strangest things when they are stressed.
