I think champagne is ok. I might be slightly bothered in my Future Mother-In-Law wore white or ivory but honestly I think you have to choose your battles. Having your Future Mother-In-Law is better than having a young super attractive girl around your age wear it!

I’ve had so much trouble with my Future Mother-In-Law that it really wouldn’t have surprised me if she (at one point) went with an almost white dress…

Ultimately she didn’t (it’s latte) but pretty revealing for our crowd and even my & Fiance taste…

I’m still just glad she actually took the time to go get a dress! lol

I can understand where you are coming from, especially since she had purchased two other different colored dresses BEFORE purchasing one close to the color of a wedding dress. I guess it would all depend on what shade it was, and of course I don’t think anyone would see her as a bride or think she was the bride, but it’s understandable to be upset. I would ask her to pair it with a different colored sash or shawl, so it would have some contrast to it or just a pop of color. I think that adding colored accessories would make it look more like a pretty light colored dress rather than a “omg, she’s wearing white” type of a dress.

My mom is wearing a Champagne/ Gold dress for the wedding. It is long with tiers. I love it. I helped her pick it out. The most important thing to me was that she looked and felt beautiful.

I would be mortifyed if my Future Mother-In-Law wore something even remotely close to white!Eventhough she won’t get mixed up with the bride, it’s the principle of the fact. In my mine, the only one that should wear white is the bride, and champaien/ivory WITH colour (shawl, shoes, etc.) also is the mother of the bride. I would definatly get Fiance to say something.

@napabridekelsey: I feel for you. Your mother should have picked her dress out first. As the MOG she should have coordinated with you and your mother. I agree that you should suggest the teal dress. Try to go shopping with her, maybe that will change her mind. At least she is excited!

My dress is Ivory and I fear that my Future Mother-In-Law will try to wear a white dress or a wedding gown to be spiteful. She does not like me, not sure why, but she has already threatened that she will not come to the Wedding. I don’t get it!

At least I’m not the only one with a Mother-In-Law wearing a champagne dress – and my dress is ivory! Thank God for this thread 🙂 When she showed it to me I just smiled and nodded – she’d already purchased it, so I wasn’t going to make a fuss. I’m not worried that she’ll upstage me, but I told my fiance that I couldn’t promise that my friends and family wouldn’t make some comments (even though I’ve told them I don’t care, we’re a fiery bunch), and I think she looks foolish. I just think weddings show some people’s true colors!
