Your mom looks great, but I do think it is a bit too tight for a MOB/MOH dress. I wouldn’t wear something that tight as a guest, much less as a member of the bridal party. I’d get her to keep looking.

I think she looks amazing, but if the reflection is really the color, I think that’s just too white! Does it come in any other color?

I am an Ivory Lorie Gown Owner too! I think your mom looks amazing! It might be little too tight, something a little looser. Not saying that she should wear a sack by any means! She has a great body, she should be able to look good too.

I do think the color is a bit too much like yours and she should pick a different color.

I think it is too tight and too shiny for a MOB gown. The color isn’t really the issue.

Wedding_Bee_8765:  I don’t think the fit is inappropriate at all. And the colour looks like a pale gold to me…which you said gold is one of your wedding colours. I think you are worrying too much…I don’t think your mom will look like a bride at all in this dress and I definitely don’t think this dress will distract anyone from you! My mom wore a similar dress to my sister’s wedding and in no way did it distract from my sister.

I think the dress looks nice in the color it shows but if it is actually the color in the mirror I don’t think so. It is too close to white

I think your mom has great taste and I would totally rock that dress at a formal wedding. Let her wear it. You told her to pick a dress that makes her feel beautiful. Stick with that.

I think the color will be fine – I think you will still easily stand out. As for the fit, I think it depends on your wedding venue and time. I would say it is not appropriate for a church or day wedding but would be fine for a more casual/progressive or evening wedding. But if it will make you upset, regardless, I would talk to her about finding something different.
