I agree with everyone that the new dress is a big improvement, and I truly believe every bride should pick her own dress (within budget). 

That said….. don’t get mad buuuuuuuuuuutttttt…..I think you might want to reconsider waiting until the big day to reveal this. if she is “a great mom” then do you want to kind of ruin such a huge day for her? You have no idea how she will react, and nor do I, but there is a possibilty she will feel slapped in the face, blindsided, deeply hurt, etc. Not necessarily about the dress itself but also the secrecy and the disposal of a gift she thought was going to be such a special part of your most special day. I just worry that the drama of her emotions could ruin the day for you, or else the hurt she experiences on the day will ruin the day for her. A few weeks before the big day would be a better time to drop the bomb, In My Humble Opinion

Ahh bee, I’m so excited for you! This new one pulls your waist in so much better. I can’t see your mum can be too shocked- it’s hardly a trendy, revealing or ultra-modern choice and the colour is very soft and subtle. I’d call it pure old fashioned romance!
