So here is my internal dilemma:
My fiance’s mother got her dress a little over a month ago. My mom hadn’t gotten hers yet, but I didn’t care…my mom was dragging her feet with shopping so that’s her fault. So the MOG finds a dress…great sale at David’s Bridal …and its silver, kinda sparkly and its chiffon.
So this past weekend I go out shopping with my mom and aunt, and she finds a taffeta dress she loves at David’s….and on the tag it says Gunmetal (online it says pewter..) but it’s a dark color (actually looks a bit olivey in person). Now this dress also comes in a royal blue color. My mom did look better in the Gunmental one though. So she got it…we drove by the future in-laws to drop off MOG’s shawl she had David’s make, and to compare the dresses. They were certainly different…but I don’t know…I have that pit in the bottom of my stomach about it. I mean it’s not like MOG said anything, but in my head I am thinking “well really what would she say to your face” even if she wasn’t happy about it. My mom could care less…and my aunt insists that it is different enough.
Do you think it is bad for the mothers to both be in the same color family?
Would you make your mom/politely ask her to go back and get the blue color?
Am I being ridiculous and should I just let it go?
Here are the two dresses:
