    I think it would be fine, but I would maybe ask your future daughter in laws opinion too, just in case. I would love to see you in it too, if you do end up buying it, that way everyone can really see if the neckline won’t be too low. 🙂

    I love the colour!

    I can’t say I would LOVE my mother to wear this to my wedding but, I don’t think it’s the worst thing that she could wear. The model is pretty silly and seems like shes is about to molest someone and the facial expressions don’t help. I would want my mom to feel pretty and have fun but I don’t see myself approving greatly of the dress or the color. However, my mom does salsa dancing and I would absolutely encourage the dress for that occasion.

    I’m not going to lie I would not have been pleased if my mother in law showed up to my wedding in this dress.  The red is just too aggressive for my taste.  Like you are trying to draw attention to yourself.

    1. I think it the length would work for the wedding you described.

    2. For my personal taste, yes. It depends more on how busty you are, though. The color is fine. I wouldn’t worry about that.

    3. It’s really pretty. If it’s your personal style, I say go for it! =]

    i think the style and length are fine.  The colour is too bright for your position in my opinion.  If it was a maroon or softer red colour then perhaps, but I find it a little vibrant for MOG even though it’s a nice dress.

    I wouldn’t be happy– it’s way too LOOK AT ME!!!!

    But, ask your future daughter in law, she might not care at all.

    I do think the neckline is a little too much and the color is very bright. I think how you wear the neckline could make it or break it depending on how much you fill it out. I dont think I would be too happy if my Mother-In-Law had worn that!

    I agree that it might be a little low, especially if you are busty.  And, if the Bridesmaid or Best Man are wearing tea length dresses it might be weird for you to be wearing  a dress that is full length in the back (I could be wrong about that, being a bit fashion impaired myself).

    I like them both, but yeah, the one you chose is probably a bit more ‘mom appropriate’  its all about what she’s comfortable wearing 🙂

    I like the option you went with MUCH better for a MOG. The red was much too flashy.

    My Mother-In-Law wore a floor length purple dress:

    and my mom wore a knee-length bronze dress from David’s Bridal:

    I’m glad you were able to get a dress that both you and your FDIL like!
