I think it’d work just fine, since lavender is a soft, garden-y color.

I think the lavender will look just fine.  Honestly, mother of the groom is in very few pictures, especially right beside anything else wedding coloured.  Green/purple are a nice compliment anyway.

The mothers can wear any color they want.Your FMIL very thoughtfully picked a color that will co-ordinate well with your palette.

I can’t think of a BETTER color than lavender for your venue (gorgeous by the way, I am so jealous)!!

@julies1949:  This.

Why would you need to say anything to her about it? Other than telling her that her dress sounds lovely. If you actually ask your FMIL to change her dress because lavender (a pretty, light, simple color) isn’t ‘neutral’ enough for your wedding…you’re not going to be painting yourself in a good light with his family. Or as a bride in general. Please don’t do it.
