    Is that the color for the MOB dress?  Or is a different color?

    I think color would really make a difference in this case….. (meaning, if that’s the exact color – too close to a wedding dress – but if it was a different color (say, black, blue, purple) I think it would look like an evening gown and be ok.

    the MOB dress looks like a wedding dress it is a lil too much over the top. Also, would it be the same shade as the one picture? The MOB color should compliment the wedding party like my mom is wearing a teal color to match the purple dresses

    Holy crap…that’s actually a MOB dress??  It looks like a wedding dress.  I would definitely pick something else.

    Eh, I’m going to go against the consensus I think it depends on the color and what the bride thinks.  If the color is anything except the above champaign and the bride likes it for the MOB I think there’s no problem and it will be lovely!

    The champaign… might elicit some comment but hell if both of you really want it – doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks.

    ETA: You might want to wear a veil though!

    They both look like wedding dresses to me, too. Is there another MOB dress that you have in mind that she would like?

    I don’t think it’s appropriate, but what does the bride think?

    Holy cow!  I thought the first pic was your wedding dress!  This is a no way to me.  Have her find something else.
