I agree, it’s not very appropriate. But I would just let it go. She’s the one who will look silly, not you.

Holy Smoke!  That’s a little risque’, but I’m not sure there is anything you can do!  Your mother will definitely look classy and beautiful!!!!!!!

it’s not very appropriate, but i’d let it go – she may choose to wear a shawl/bolero/jacket with it since it’ll be late October, and there wont be any shots featuring the back/her legs. sawwi she’s chosen that dress!

@artbee: Ditto

Dont let wat she wears ruin your day. Im sure it wont be worth the fight. Maybe she just chose it to bother you, and if you seem disinterested she might let it go and choose something more appropriate

Let it be.  Even though it may not be aged appropiate, @ least she is wearing after 5 attire.   Remember that you can’t control everything having to do w/ your wedding.  People and family will do what they want to do.

I think it’ll be fine. I agree it’s not worth the potential fight.

Agreed with above posters. Let it go, it’s not worth stressing over. My FH aunt wore an inappropriate dress to her son’s wedding too. It was a big, pouffy princess looking dress. Awful.

Your mom’s dress is wonderful though!

Agreed with the other posters.  Definitely NOT an appropriate dress, but I would just let it go! No one will be able to steal the spotlight from you, the bride 😉

I agree to not say anything to her. She will be the one looking ridiculous!

Let it go, be nice. I speak from experience when I say you always want to make an effort to get along with Mother-In-Law even when she’s being wildly inappropriate.

Just our of curiosity, how old is your FMIL?

My Future Mother-In-Law is wearing a dress that is so not appropriate for our daytime wedding. But you know what? I don’t care. When she told me about her dress her face lit up, so I can tell she is really happy with her purchase.

Haha she’s going to feel stupid when she realizes she’s getting negative attention. That would piss me off, but what can you do Tongue out
