I think it’s fine that they’ll both be in black and white!  They’re definitely different enough that it shouldn’t really be an issue.    Maybe you could make the mother flowers DIFFERENT colors to highlight the uniqueness of both moms?

I think it’s perfectly fine.  I’m sure they’ll get some funny comments about you forcing them to wear uniforms or something like that, but if they will both look lovely, that’s what counts!

I think it’s great that they are coordinating! I like it. My Fi’s mom wanted to buy her dress after my mom’s, too. They both got super bright dresses. My mom’s is red and my FI’s mom’s is "lapis" which is like a royal blue with some purple in there. My BM"S are in champagnes, haha, so they’ll all stand out!

I think they’ll both look marvelous! As they’re drastically different styles I don’t see any issue at all. I love the idea of doing flowers that are unique to each of them – maybe even going so far as to vary the arrangement type – perhaps a corsage for your mom and a wristlet for his.

i think it is not only perfectly fine – but great.  they will look ab fab!  

my Future Mother-In-Law asked for a pic of my mom’s dress, and i sent it to her letting her know that i can’t guarantee that my mom won’t change her mind before the wedding, but this is what she is has for now.  trust me, my mom will probably buy two more dresses before i get married (and it is coming up this june).

but – my mom and Future Mother-In-Law have two totally different shapes and styles.  even if they wore the same dress it would look totally different on them.

Yeah they def look great in their own way…very different even though both black and white. Both ladies will look great. By The Way…the FMIL’s dress is beautiful…very nice! I like them both.

I love your FMIL’s dress!  She also sounds like she will be really supportive!  I’m sure your Mother-In-Law will be fine as long as she knows that you are not upset with her, and that she gave your mom every opportunity to prevent this situation (which won’t look bad at all, since the dresses are very different as the above posters noted)
