I think it’s fine. Champagne is pretty common for MOB’s.

Assuming that your dress is long (and doesn’t have colored accents on it), I see no problem with it at all- especially with the jacket.

yep.. i agree.. it’s definitely ok for her to wear it because it’s nothing like white.. your dress will stand out on its own.. don’t worry

I really like the dress.  Your FMIL has some nice fashion sense – you should see what mine (both mom and FMIL) are going to come up with. 

I think that with the little jacket, it looks great.  It only starts looking "white" without the little jacket – and even then it definately doesn’t look bridal (except maybe really super casual backyard or beach bridal.)  You are going full-on bridal, right?

I also think that it is neutral enough to look nice with a bridal party in black.  It really is a pretty neutral dress, unless it is much brighter in person that in the pics you posted.  She could wear some kind of neon bright color and totally stick out!

I think it’s your day and you have a right to feel however you want.  That being said, you FMIL has been nice enough to ask you (mine didn’t and I’m upset with what she’s wearing) so you can say something.  She has told you she is asking your permission.  If you want my opinion on the dress itself, I think it is okay because it is a coktail length (not floor length) and has some red pattern to it.  You will definitely look way way nicer but if you are concerned about photos looking off – then say something! Maybe "This dress is beautiful.  I love it, but does it come in any other color combinations?"

I think it looks nice and nothing like a bridal dress.  But as IndianBride said, it is your wedding and she did ask for your opinion.  If you feel uncomfortable with her wearing it, then let her know.

Hey Sweeney – I hope your FMIL knows how lucky she is to get your for her DIL.  Sounds like you two have a pretty good relationship already.

I think that is a great MOG dress- my mom’s dress is WHITE- i mean- it has some gold threads running through parts of it,but it is definitely a white outfit.

 esp. with the jacket, i honestly would have never even put this in the white or ivory category. even without the jacket it looks like a beige dress with a pattern- not wedding gown like at all. and i am a bit scared of what my FMIL is going to pull out… maybe i will show her this picture to give her an idea of something appropriate!

I think you handled this beautifully, and it sounds like you are off to a great start with your FMIL.  I’m envious 🙂  ps – it was totally okay of you to want to say no, and super big of you to say yes
