My grandma and Future Mother-In-Law are both actually wearing black. I think it’s not a big deal, let her wear what she feels comfortable in… It may not be your ideal, but it won’t matter at the end of the day and it’s one less stress between you and Future Mother-In-Law.

My mom wanted my help, and wanted to go shopping together (which is pretty rare, actually – that’s not something we ever did much of). 

You could pick several dresses that you like and then ask her to choose from those. If you give her a broad enough range – 10 or so dresses – it lets her feel like she’s choosing, and lets her have control over what she wears, but you’re getting to make sure that whatever she chooses will work with your colors.

I have the opposite problem – I don’t mind what my mum wears but she keeps asking for my approval on every tiny thing, I want her to wear whatever makes her happy.

I let them wear what ever they want.. My Future Mother-In-Law picked out a dress that is not season appropriate but that’s her problem.. My mother asked me to help her but I would have let her wear whatever.. Now that my wedding is 3 weeks away I have so much other stuff to deal with I don’t care!

@ninjachc:  I didn’t realize your mom was being the bigger problem, lol. I definitely understand your frustration now!! Maybe you can google mom’s walking bride down the aisle and show you her some examples of what other mom’s have worn.
