I think it’s fine to state your preference about the dress (e.g., no slits); however, she might be one of the people that just ignores you and does whatever she wants to do. I’d try to focus on not letting it get to you. There’s no way the mother of the groom is going to outshine you. Even if she showed up naked, she wouldn’t outshine you. I agree that her choices are tacky, but that reflects on her, not on you. If she wants to look silly and embarrass herself after you’ve already told her your preferences, then I’d do your best just to ignore her dress choice and enjoy the rest of the experience. There will only be drama if you let there be drama. Sorry this is causing you stress!

@Chanel87:  I just wore that Alfred Angelo dress for an event with my fiance — see the profile pic!

I laughed out loud at the 2 dresses she liked…I’m glad my mom is more of a grandma type! 🙂 Good luck — they are definitely inappropriate for any wedding guest, not just the MOG!!

Lol at her picks….but I agree you are only going to be upset if you let her stress you out. Just let her wear whatever the hell she wants. She will be embarrassed, not you. I’m sure that’s easier said than done, but sometimes you have to choose your battles, and I don’t think this is one I would fight.

Let her wear the Vegas Showgirl dress if she wants. Trust me, at the wedding, the only attention she’s going to get is the negative kind. She won’t steal your spotlight for longer than it takes for someone to giggle at her!
