HELP!!! My soon-to-be mother in-law wants to wear a pink pant suit to our wedding. Our wedding colours are charcoal grey and burnt orange. Hello – pink is going to clash! My lovely fiance won’t talk to her about the colour choice and feels I should. I’ve only been in the same room as his mother a handful of times as they live 10 hours away. We basically see them once a year (we’ve been together 3 years and they’ve never been to our house!). Yes, as you can sense I’m not a huge fan of his family and I’m not very good a sugar coating things. Do I speak my mind or do I let her wear what she wants and clash?

The MOG doesn’t necessarily have to match wedding colors. I’d let this one slide.

While the MOG doesn’t necessarily have to match, I certainly wouldn’t want my MOG to clash. I would just set up a lunch date with her and talk about the colors at the wedding and the colors of the bridesmaid dresses and ask if she would mind wearing something that went with the color scheme… Worst comes to worst she says no and wears pink, it probably won’t affect your relationship if you guys aren’t that close to begin with… Just my opinion 🙂

I would say let it go. My MOG wanted to wear an almost white dress. I told her it looked too bridal and now she picked a navy dress. We have a good relationship though so I was comfortable enough to say that. But in my head I was thinking, white! are you kidding me?!?!?! I knew I would be ok with her wearing any other color of the rainbow..just no white!
