I’d be a little annoyed. There are so many beautiful dresses to choose from, and if you (as the bride) chose to wear white and want to be the only want to wear white, your Future Mother-In-Law should appreciate that wear something else.

Obviously no one will confuse your Mother-In-Law for you regardless of what she wears, but I never really understood that argument anyway. Clearly, guests know you from your mom (or mother-in-law)…

Personally, I wouldnt wear white as a guest to any wedding but I wouldnt care if someone wore it to mine.

If she’s going to look ridiculous then its her problem.

Have your Fiance speak to your mother.  Foot down, no white dress for her.

The dress posted is wrong on so many levels, that it being white is the least of it. General rules for weddings are not to wear anything TOO anything – too close to white, too tight, too short, too low cut, too flashy, etc. One doesn’t want to attract attention to themselves because it isn’t their day. 

That’s not to say that I or anyone else specifically would be angry about someone wearing things like this, just that wedding etiquette is pretty well known. I can’t imagine a woman over the age of 30 not knowing this, so it would lead me to believe that she simply wants attention. I find it a little sad that someone would need attention so badly as to make a fool of themselves at their child’s wedding.

My mother’s friend married her husband, and the husband’s mom was a piece of work. She showed up in a WEDDING GOWN (it was a floor length lace gown with a train and those sleeves that come down to a tip on the hand, very formal and 80’s) and then cried on the video about how hard it was that her son was “leaving her for another woman.”

The hilarious thing is that my mom’s friend, her new husband, and ALL of their friends are psychologists so basically there was a room full of people there staring at this woman and thinking about her mental health issues 😉

Anyhow I wouldn’t worry about it, she’s only going to make herself look insane. Or if she mentions it again, burst out laughing, and then say “oh! sorry, I assumed you were joking.”
