I think it is just fine — especially if your BMs and Future Mother-In-Law will be in black.

I also think she’ll look fine in black.

Ya I think it’s ok as long as she’s not the only one in the bridal party wearing black…but personlly being Chinese having black in the wedding itself is pretty much forbidden by the parents HAHAHA  But I’ve seen it in weddings before and black can look very classy with the right flowers and hairstyles!!!

My mom wore black to our wedding.  But our colors were also black and white (with a touch of pink).  So it really worked out.  She looked very elegant in the photos especially some of the portraits with her and my Dad in his tux. 

I think it’s fine – don’t stress.  The black (of her dress) and white (of your dress) contrast will be elegant for years to come!

My mother is wearing black as well, and my Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are black also. I have read where black is the new wedding white. Believe me, I researched using black before I chose my colors. I think using black is like wearing white after labor day, it is acceptable now.  Good Luck!!!

I too think it is acceptable for your mom to wear black, especially considering your Future Mother-In-Law and bridesmaids will be in black.

I don’t think it’s a problem at all! Both my mom and my Mother-In-Law wore black and our bridesmaid dresses were black as well. I think if it’s a fairly formal event, many guests may also choose to wear black so I don’t think your mom will be alone.

My mom is wearing black too. ๐Ÿ™‚ If she’d only settle on a dress though… ๐Ÿ˜‰

I don’t think that’s a problem.  My mom considered black until she found another dress that she liked.  Personally, I would have been totally fine with her wearing black, that’s what my Bridesmaid or Best Man are wearing. ๐Ÿ™‚

Say yes to the Black dress! My wedding is black and white with shades of Red as the accent color. My Maid/Matron of Honor and Future Mother-In-Law are wearing black dresses. I think my mom will be wearing red but she may also choose black as well. Either way your Mom wearing a black dress will look great!

My mom wore a black dress for our wedding – nothing wrong with that!

My mother also wore black.  She really wanted a color but at the end of the day, the dress she and I liked the most was black – not a problem in my book.

My entire bridal party is in black and so is my mother.  I think it’s fine!!
