Sometimes parents can’t accept that styles and certain faux pas are no longer applicable in this day and age. Black used to be a BIG no-no in weddings back in the day, not so much anymore.

That is a beautiful dress and I’m sure your bridesmaids will appreciate the fact that you thought about the money they will spend, and that the dress can easily be worn again.

Good luck dealing with your mom! Lol :]

That dress is gorgeous and has a very classic silhouette.  Maybe tell your Mom that a) Your vision for your day includes these lovely, black dresses, and b) You’re also selecting this dress so that your girls can wear their dresses again instead of dropping $125+ on one they’ll wear once.

I love the dress and if your mom isn’t paying for all of the bridesmaids dresses it isn’t too much she can say… Go for it and the pop of color will bring it all together

I would tell my Mom that I didn’t get to pick out the bridesmaids’ dresses for her wedding, so she doesn’t get to do the same for my wedding.

Seriously though, sometimes mothers are just stuck in the past. I would show her some wedding pics off the net to help her catch up with the times.

I like it!  Show her pictures of other weddings with black BM dresses so she can see the whole picture, like this (found on google)
