@quirkydog:  It’s not worth thinking about. You’re the bride and everyone will be looking at you, not her.

I don’t think it’s weird, black is a very normal color to wear. I think it will be obvious to the guests that they are not at a funeral.

@quirkydog:  provided she doesn’t rock up with a black veil and cries to everyone that she is mourning the loss of her child i think it’s perfectly acceptable to wear black to a wedding. 🙂

She may have had second thoughts when she was out dress shopping and decided to buy a dress that she knew she could wear multiple times in the future. She may just be a very practical woman.

Black is probably the most common color for formal dresses and is usually the most flattering. I don’t think it’s weird. And I don’t think you need to give it a second thought. There will be more to freak out about later on, so just move on from this on!

@quirkydog:  My Mother-In-Law wore a black dress. She looked fabulous in it too. It was avery simple Balck dress. I know she doesn’t hate me, and wasn’t making a thing of it.


I wouldn’t worry about it.

Try not to worry about it. Black is pretty much universally flattering, and a popular formal dress color.

As long as she isn’t wearing black out of protest to show she is against the marriage, I don’t think it matters what colour she is wearing.

No wedding has ever been ruined cause the mother of the bride wore any colour.

My mother is wearing a black gown and it looks stunning on her.  Our wedding is formal.  The girls are wearing platinum.  Black is now a common wedding color esp for formal weddings.
