I don’t think it would be weird/bothersome to others because it’s just a jacket. She can always remove the jacket at anytime right? I had absolutely no say in what my mother is wearing. She picked a purple dress she is IN LOVE with and my wedding colors are coral and white… It’s not that big of a deal to me.

It sounds like the main part of the outfit is pink, so I think it’s fine! The only time I’m horrified is when someone is wearing a long white/cream/champagne dress.. Her outfit sounds lovely!

@Sammygetswed:  I wouldn’t worry about it. I attended a wedding last summer where the mother of the bride wore a white dress to match her daughter. They planned it that way and no one thought it was weird. I think if your mom loves it and you love it who cares what everyone else thinks.

It wouldn’t bother me. In fact, I’ve seen MOB/MOG pics where they are wearing white/ivory trouser/skirt suits and I think it looks nice. The only thing which would bother me is if a guest wore a long white dress, like a PP said!

I think it sounds lovely! I’m happy that your mother found something beautiful and something she feels beautiful in. I honestly don’t think people care about that at all. And as long as YOU don’t have a problem with it, who cares about everyone else!

I think it’s fine! I would not think anything of a MOB wearing a white jacket.
