I don’t think I would mind if she really had her heart set on it.  I think the MOB could get away with it, but NOT a guest.

I am one who doesn’t care if anyone else wears white or ivory. I think it’s a pretty MOB dress and it’s not all white/ivory.

@ejay15:  I think it’s very pretty and would not think poorly of her.  Did you ever see the Steve Martin Father of the Bride movie?  The mom wore a short ivory/beige dress, but it was clearly a MOB dress and looked beautiful.  I think the only problem is when something looks too bridal gown like.  I’d think your mom looked lovely and appropriate.

 I think its really pretty. I dont mind the color but might avoid if the top of your dress was lace in a similar style.

I wouldn’t mind. But if it bothers you ask her too get it in another color.

It isnt all white so I see no problem with it. I dont think that white should be banned from all wedding guests. An all white outfit I understand, but anything else I think is fine for any gues

I was just at a wedding on Friday where the MOB wore a dress almost identical to that one! It might have even been the same one. She looked lovely, and I can’t imagine anyone thought she was inappropriate.

For MOB, I think it’s okay. The only concern I might have, is if it’s similar to yours. (My dress has no lace, so my Mom could have picked something like that.)

I think that’s a fantastic MOB dress, I don’t think anyone will think the small amount of white is a faux pas.

I would not mind at all especially since it has a colored skirt.  My mom is wearing a cream colored top and I am completely fine with it.  It’s what she wants to wear and that makes me happy.

I wouldn’t be bothered at all. I think it’s pretty. I also don’t think you should worry at all about what others will think of her. Your mom is a grown woman who I’m sure doesn’t really care what someone thinks about the color of her dress.

Obviously nobody is going to mistake your mom for you. Let her wear it!
