I don’t think they’re too similar at all; in fact, I think they’re similar enough to identify her as being in some way connected to the wedding party, which is good. But no one’s going to mistake her for a bridesmaid. Go to the shop shop and see; ALWAYS accept the opportunity to see things in person!

I would be a little concerned about ordering dresses this far in advance, though. Fashion changes, people’s body weight changes, and your vision of the wedding will change. You may want to slow down a bit on these details!

I would just send her the link like you did here and let her decide if she thinks it is too similar or not. It is a very similar color but I honestly dont think it is a big deal, unless it will make her feel awkward so just let her see them side by side and decide what she wants to do.

Oh ya that makes sense and it explains why she is jumping the gun on dress shopping this time around haha

I think the dress she chose will be fine. It is a different blue, but will blend well in pictures.

I think those colors look beautiful together! My mother wore a gown in a sapphire blue shade very similar to the one your Future Mother-In-Law chose, and my bridesmaids were in a caribbean sea-blue-colored gown very similar in color to your bridesmaids’ dresses, and they looked fabulous together! I may be biased, but I think this is a great combination! 🙂

Sorry that  my one pic is so huge!
