Hello! I’m usually a lurker but I have come out of hiding for a little help. My mother picked a dress this afternoon after looking at a LOT of dresses, and we were so happy! However, later on, she became concerned that it is TOO similar to my little sister’s (who is the MOH) dress for the wedding!
She is concerned about it, and was hoping for some unbiased opinions. Do you think the dresses below are TOO SIMILAR for a mother of the bride and sister of the bride/maid of honor to wear? Keep in mind, they will be taking MANY pictures together
On the left is my mom’s dress, in the color she ordered (silver) and on the right is my sister’s dress, NOT in the color she ordered. She ordered Charcoal, and it comes with a sash that was not available in the store to try on (I guess they lost it?).
My mom’s dress is: https://moncheribridals.com/browse/mother-of-the-bride/montage-by-mon-cheri/215912-mt/
My sister’s dress is: http://www.morilee.com/bridesmaids/bridesmaids/121
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Please don’t worry about hurting her feelings.. she will be calling the dress store where she purchased and she will be able to switch to the other dress if needed, so she’s just concerned about whether or not they’re too similar. Thank you!

I think they look very similar in style but I think it will look nice in photos because they will looks so nice together. because of the color difference i think they will be different enough!

I agree completely! They’re similar, but the fact that they’re different shades of the same color is great. I think they’ll look so pretty together in photos.

Similar but will look so good together! My mom and my mother in law ended up wearing shades of navy/dark purple which was really similar to my bridesmaids color (navy) and in the photos it looks so nice. I would have never tried to make them match, it just turned out that way

They look great together and the Maid/Matron of Honor dress is a-mazing!

I think they’ll look good together. Also, your sister looks amazing in that dress.

Sufficiently different to still look unique. Sufficiently similar to look complimentry. Perfect!

What they all said. They will be complementary. I love the Maid/Matron of Honor dress in the colour pictured though , would your mum consider that? It is so nice and not at all a bridal sort of colour, which that silver is a bit . You may not care about that aspect of course!
