I think the dress is the most inappropriate thing ever, white is not even on my radar when looking at that picture lol. Put some clothes on Mama!

I just think it looks silly when parents want to wear white to their kids wedding.

Tell her that looks like what a bride would wear to the rehearsal dinner…

Glad it all worked out for you.

My own mother was the problem at my wedding. My Mother-In-Law picked out a beautiful dress in a pearl/gray color. My mom bought some periwinkle colored dress she kept raving about. She texted me the picture and I told her if she wanted to wear it that was fine, but that the other dress she showed me (a previous one she already bought) was more flattering. She wore the blue dress and all night people kept commenting that she looked like she was going to the prom. Seriously, it looked like a prom or Bridesmaid or Best Man dress. It was spaghetti straps and it just did not flatter her figurer.

Like others have said I am sure that no one will mistake her for the bride but as she is your Future Mother-In-Law and it clearly bothers her can’t you just be honest with her or at the very least hint heavily toward another one of her choices.

@MsBeer:  Yes, it was crazy! It was so distracting! All I could think about at this wedding was “WTF? Why is your mom wearing a wedding gown?!” It looked really old fashioned so I think it was actually her gown from when she got married. So weird.

That wouldn’t fly with me, and I’m pretty sure my mom wouldn’t do it. I know everyone says “it’s just a color”, but wearing the same color that is now traditionally associated with the bride, is just rude in my book. If you wanna wear pale pink or something, be my guest. But don’t show up to my wedding as a guest, wearing the same color as me when all eyes are supposed to be on my groom and I.

I don’t care if a random guest wears white (as long as it isn’t bridal, but if a guest showed up to my semi-casual wedding in a bridal gown, we would all have a good laugh) but I draw the line at someone who will be in the portraits. MOB, MOG, bridal party, etc. If I’m not in a posed picture with you, I don’t care because no one will notice or remember after the fact. But I don’t want to be just another woman in white in the portraits. It sounds silly, because it will still be obvious who’s the bride and all that. But wearing white on your wedding day is one of those things in your life that is just so full of inexplainable meaning (at least to me) that I don’t think it’s appropriate for someone to stand up with me also wearing white. It kind of devalues the significance of the color on that day.

I would be pissed if my Future Mother-In-Law wore white. I agree with

@futurepilotswife_:  On my computer screen is does look like a light champagne color as opposed to white. Personally, I could care less about the “only brides get to wear white” rule so I wouldn’t freak out over the color (the length, fit, and lace material however…) but it is your day so you make the rules 🙂
