If she shows up in an ivory bedazzled dress it will only reflect on her taste. Your mom is going to look classic and stunning. The only the to do is to talk to Fiance and see if he will talk to her. More along the lines of how it will reflect on her and he wouldn’t want her to be embarassed.

If anything the color would bug me more than the fact that it was attacked by a bedazzler.  It would seem like common sense not to wear such a close color to the bride, aside from that, I think its fair game.  I’ve seen a lot of this on the bee, but since when were mothers supposed to check with the bride about their dress choice??  I never saw my MILs dress, not even a picture, until the day of the wedding.  My mother did show me hers and asked if I liked it, but she’s always done that with her dresses and a lot of her clothing with me.

I never saw my MIL’s dress prior to the wedding day. I would be more annoyed about the color than the beading honestly. Can you Fiance say anything to her about it? Your mom’s dress is beautiful by the way!

I agree that the color is most offensive. If she looks bad, it will reflect on her and not on you.

I think that your Mom’s dress is still much nicer, blingy does not equal classy to me.

Your mother’s dress is gorgeous.  The other one, if it looks like the picture, I don’t see that being for a mature woman.  From how you describe it, it sounds like a hot mess.  I personally wouldn’t care about what she looked like, I would only care if my mama looked good!

Your mother’s dress is beautiful!  I have seen shades of ivory and champagne shades on older family member at weddings; it doesn’t take my attention away from the bride, but it does make me shake my head when they wear shades close to white. 

No doubt, all eyes will be on you, and your mother’s dress is tasteful and a little sexy with the one shoulder.

I am going through a similar thing.  Future Mother-In-Law bought a dress to wear to FCIL’s wedding that is half white and half black.  The top half is entirely, plain white, and the bottom half is black. 

I’m actually not mad about the color thing, because I don’t know where to draw the line on that… and I know she is NOT trying to outshine me.

I am mad because the dress is NOT suitable for MOG.  It isn’t blingy, but it is very tight and form-fitting.  It is really short.  For whatever reason, my Future Mother-In-Law refuses to believe she is a 50-year-old grandmother.  I mean, she isn’t a floosy or anything, but sometimes she tries way too hard to be “sexy” (saying she’s going to put her belly button ring back in, etc.).  Her son’s wedding isn’t the place for that. 

I also find it a little odd that she put more effort and consideration into picking dresses to wear to FI’s other cousin’s wedding and rehearsal dinner than she is doing for ours.

Btw, your mom’s dress is beautiful, and the blingy show your Future Mother-In-Law bought will only make her look obnoxious!
