    The only thing I asked for was “not white”. I don’t really care what color she wears. I just want her to be comfortable and feel good.

    Personally, I say it doesn’t matter.  Does she normally have good taste in picking out clothes?

    My Future Mother-In-Law is dead set she will not wear a dress, absopositively won’t!  We had to tell her that she can’t wear blue jeans! NOT Going to HAPPEN!  

    Fiance is going to do the “Mom all I want for my wedding day (other then the obvious of getting married) is to see you in a dress once in my life!

    It’ll be easier to tell once the dress comes too.   I hate getting clothes without trying them on, so worse comes to worse she might have to return it.

    But, then you make a girls days out of dress shopping for mom with grandma too!

    My mom, who lived in a different state than I did, was visiting her sister in another state, and my aunt encouraged her to look for her MOB dress while she was there.  I ended up getting a phone call from my mother, telling me that she had purchased her dress for my wedding.  My aunt and cousin really liked it, and they were all trying to desribe the dress to me over the phone. Finally, my other aunt e-mailed pics to me, and, although my mother looked lovely in the dress, it was in no way what I had envisioned for my wedding.

    When I explained this to my mother, she returned the dress.  I then found a dress that was the PERFECT color and style for my mother for my wedding. Once she had it on, she loved it, too! I am so glad that I was able to go with her to choose a dress we both loved. 

    If the dress your grandmother and mother ordered turns out to be one that you just do not like, I think you can politely ask that they consider another (as long as the first dress is able to be returned.)
