I, personally, wouldn’t say anything. If the dress doesn’t fit, won’t she have to get a new one anyway?

Is it a strapless sweetheart?  Could you say something about modesty restrictions your church might have or his family might have?  Can you tie religion and modesty to choice of the dress?

I think it depends on your relationship with your mom. If it was mine I would ask her if it’s returnable because I don’t think it’s the most Flattering dress. I would blame it on the color and her skin tone and suggest a different color, offer to go with and say it was an experience you were looking forward to having with her anyway so you are disappointed she already bought this one, but excited to go shopping for the new one!

My mom had a dress I hated for my brother’s wedding. I just gently told her I didn’t really think it was very flattering on her (it looked like a purple potato sack actually, haha). She wasn’t offended and did end up buying a much prettier dress. I think it depends on your relationship with your mom though.
