@Beansy: Honestly, dont stress over this one.  There really isnt much you can to, and trying to manage it, aka, control her some, will bring you more stress.  If she is a fashionista, let her be.  And your mom will dress as is comfortable for her.  Honestly, best to stay back from this one.

@Beansy: I would ask to go with her. If she decides that she does not want you to go then find a nice way to remind her of the wedding colors and  what your mother is wearing. Make sure she doesn’t wear white!!!

Unless you think she’ll wear something totally inappropriate, I don’t think this is a battle worth picking.

@Beansy: My Future Mother-In-Law went right after I got my dress before my mom had even looked. She didn’t ask anything about what color she should get. She ended up buying a strapless prom dress (she’s 64 and 6’2). And her dress has assymetrical pleats and sweetheart neckline JUST LIKE MY Wedding own which she had seen that morning that she went shopping. TRY to go with her if she’ll let you. Don’t do what I did and leave her to her own devices!!! My mom ended up with the 2nd pick b/c this woman did her own thing and didn’t know what the rules were!

I would ask if you could go along to help with the  purchase of her dress 🙂

I honestly don’t see what the big deal is and in my opinion, it doesn’t matter.  She should get to wear whatever she wants (as long as it’s not inappropriate). 

I could care less if either of our moms wear our colors or that their dresses match each other.  They will be in a few group photos together and otherwise will be in photos separately with us.

She’s a grown woman – why should it matter what she wears and why should the bride’s mom get to pick first (honestly, that’s the first time I’ve ever heard that).  Maybe I’m old school, I dunno – as long as it’s nice, I could care less what color, length, etc. is is.

@Beansy: 

Surpirisingly, My Future Mother-In-Law did wait for my mom to get her gown first. She wanted to make sure my mom got the color she wanted, etc. I thought that maybe your Future Mother-In-Law didn’t know any better, but being that she is obsessed with clothes, that is not the case. Did your mom get her gown yet? In any case, i wouldn’t stress over it. I am sure that whatever your mom is wearing or is going to pick out if she has not already bought a gown will look beautiful.

@Beansy: offer to go with! I asked Future Mother-In-Law if she wanted to go shopping, she did and I had my say and it’s an adorable dress. Would take her shopping again in a heartbeat.
