everyone will still know that you’re the bride. at least her gown isn’t white, right? 🙂 i totally hear you about the formality of her dress, but seriously, people will be focused on you and i’m sure your dress is gorgeous.

That would make me mad too. But honestly everyone will be looking at her like why is she so dressed up?! If my friends saw that they would come up to me and say did you see what she was wearing?! They would def point it out and i would def explain to them what she did! 😉 And if anyone else even notices she is going to be the one that looks weird!

Watch the beginning of “The Mirror Has Two Faces” when Lauren Bacall enters at Mimi Rogers’ wedding and laaauuuugghhh. Honestly–it is annoying and I can understand your irritation, but in the end, this is something to laugh off. It IS your mom’s day too because she’s your mother, but there’s no way she’s going to upstage you.

Not to be too guilt-harboring, but a little perspective: when your mother is gone, I guarantee you will pull out the pictures of you in near-matching dresses and miss her.

I agree, people will be focused on you. And when people see her gown they’ll probably laugh to themselves about how fancy it is and wonder what the hell she was thinking.

she’s going to look a) ridiculous, and b) like a brat who can’t deal with attention not being on her. just brush it off, girl, it’s YOU & YOUR GROOM’S day only!

I agree with everyone! It’s clear who the bride is going to be (you’re the one wearing the awesome white dress), and the fact that your Mother-In-Law is going to be wearing one similar is going to make her look like she’s trying to upstage you. Most people will look down on that and think what a sad person she must be to have to do that.

She’s going to look ridiculous, I agree.  Nothing  you can do about it now, but wait for all the whispers and “omg check out your MIL!!!!” whispers. 

Might be fun. 😀

@JennyW1: well, since it is her Mother-In-Law not her mother, I doubt she will have those feelings as strongly, but i get what you are saying

That would have aggravated me a little too. The main focus will be on you and your groom that day. Trust, no one will think her gown looks better than your’s.

You are younger (I’m assuming) and you will look much better! You will be the star of the show and the only one in white!

i wouldnt worry about it.. she will look silly and overdressed and she isnt the one people are coming to see… you will look better than her no matter how many sequins her dress has
