    My girls are in short dresses.

    My mom bought a long dress, Future Mother-In-Law hasn’t bought anything yet. And my mom and grandmother both bought two dresses! One for the ceremony and one for the reception. In fact, my grandmother is wearing a short dress to the reception and I don’t think I’ve ever seen her in a short dress!

    I don’t think it’ll matter much, to be honest. I’m more worried about my Future Mother-In-Law buying something really bright! She likes fuscia and aqua a lot lot.

    do most brides dress their mothers? i can’t imagine trying to pick out a dress for my mother, much less a dress for my Future Mother-In-Law. Do they have to match the bridesmaids?

    My Maid/Matron of Honor is in a long dress, my mom is in a short dress and my Future Mother-In-Law is in a long dress…and I don’t mind a bit πŸ˜‰ both the MOB and MOG dresses have jackets are are cute but very age appropriate as well. I wanted them to feel comforable. They *did* make sure the colors complimented though as well as the styles

    I don’t think it’s silly if your Future Mother-In-Law wears a short dress.. june in GA is gonna be hot! πŸ™‚

    My mom is wearing a short dress most likely, and Future Mother-In-Law probably will just so she can dance. She is serious about dancing apparently! The BMs will be wearing short dresses too!

    My BMs are wearing long dresses, so im hoping my mom and my fmil will wear short dresses. i dont want them to match the wedding party, but i dont really care if they do. My only rule for their clothing was “No white, off-white, ivory, eggshell, champagne, or any other shade of those colors.” πŸ™‚

    My BM’s are wearing tea length dresses.  My Fiance mom is wearing a dress to her knees and my mom is wearing dress pants and a dressy/fancy top.  It really depends on body types and what people are comfortable wearing.

    My bridesmaids and both Moms are wearing short dresses.

    Both of them are driving me crazy, though.  FI’s Mom wants to wear flat sandals and a navy blue dress with long sleeves?  Our colors are all pastel.  My Mom cannot decide and is emailing me a different dress every day.  GRR.

    My BMs and my mom will be wearing a short dress.  My Future Mother-In-Law will be wearing a long dress.  I think it will look fine.

    My bridesmaids are wearing short dresses and the moms are both wearing long dresses.  I had no idea if there were any sort of rules/guidelines for this…I just knew both moms wanted long dresses.

    As for colors, my bridesmaids are wearing bright pink/watermelon and my mom is wearing a clover green.  I think that complements nicely.  His mom is wearing salmon.  I have no idea how that fits in, but who cares ;op

    My bridesmaids are in long dresses, but my mom is very petite and wanted to wear a short dress.  I wanted her to be comfortable so I don’t really care what she wears.  The other two moms (my stepmom and FMIL) will be wearing long dresses because that’s what they’re comfortable in.
