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 Future Mother-In-Law 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 Future Mother-In-Law 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.
