- Wedding: April 2013
Need some opinions on wedding etiquette. So my parents are Indian and I dont think they have ever been to a white wedding or know any of the wedding etiquette. My fiance and I are having a small Indian ceremony at my parents house and then a bigger church wedding at my fiance’s families church. So my mum went out shopping one day and bought a dress that she liked but wasnt sure if it was appropriate for my church wedding but bought it anyway thinking that if she didnt wear it for the wedding she could always wear it for something else. Its a nice dress but it was a little too casual (I thought) and I mentioned this to her. She was happy to go looking for something else so when I was home for a weekend we went shopping. We couldnt find anything that shopping trip but after looking at lots of differnet styles thought a dress with a little jacket would look really nice on her.
So my mum is the kind of person I think that never spends any money on herself (even though she has the money she would rather spend it on others). So on another day when one day she went out shopping she found a dress and jacket combo that she really loved and bought. She showed it to me the other day when i was home and it is by far the most beautiful thing shes ever owned, she looks amazing in it and was thrilled at the deal she got on it. The only thing is (I dont even know its a problem) is that its a pink knee length dress with a white jacket. The fact that it has a white jacket (almost the same colour as my dress) doesnt bother me because I think its a beautiful outfit and I want my mum to look beautiful and feel amazing. But after thinking about it I dont want other people to think its weird or rude that she is wearing white because she would never do soemthing if she thought/knew it was frowned upon.
What do you guys think? Is it weird for a mob to wear a white jacket? The dress underneath is pink.
