If it’s going to bother you, I don’t think you should ignore it. I would be direct with her to tell her that it would mean a lot to you if she wore something else. Perhaps FH can say something to her a bit more harshly (i.e. she is going to look like she’s trying to be mean and people will be talking about her)?

I honestly think it’s a complete nonissue. Unless she’s wearing a bridal gown then there should be no confusion about who the star of the show is. A lot of brides wear blush or cream or champagne and guests might wear those colours too.  Does it matter? Well I don’t think so. My own mother in law wore black to our wedding and my mother tut tutted that it was a “funeral” colour. Didn’t bother me.  Everyone had blast at our wedding and I don’t think you should let any colour on the spectrum spoil your day either.

I’d be slightly annoyed. If it’s not too fancy and just a plain white dress I might just let it slide. It can’t be on the same level as the weddding dresa though. If it was just a guest/friend i’d be pissed. But since it’s the mil I would just let it go. I think you will still stand out as the bride. People will probably talk behind her back anyway and be asking each other why she wore white lol
