36-37 is NOT that old. 30 is the new 20, isn’t it? I would be totally ok with my mom wearing something like that. Granted, there are dresses that are more classy and still figure flattering, but I wouldn’t be upset. If that’s the way she normally dresses and she has the body for it, who cares?

I’d say not appropriate, but feel like the black one is the *most* appropriate of the three

I know some 36-37 year olds who could rock those dresses in a way that 21 year old me couldnt, but not to a wedding!

It has nothing to do with her age, I just don’t think they are classy enough for a wedding 18 or 48, age is not the issue here. But how will she react if you recommend something less stripper-y? Is it worth the potential tension, only you know …

I think all those dresses are highly appropriate and extremely fitting if she works as a call girl and her client is there……

Im sorry but I don’t have any good advice for you to solve the situation. I hope you will be able to change her mind by presenting some other options for her that allows her to look hot and young but still be classy and appropriate.

No freaking way. Any dress that crazy just takes attention away from the bride, which any dumbo knows is a big no no. If she’s almost 40, there’s definitely no reason for that.

Besides, a wedding isn’t the place or time for revealing clothes. Well, only if you want to look like a slut.

@cmoest:  Wow, she is young!! Lol my mom is almost 60 so I was picturing someone her age wearing a dress like that.

I don’t think it it is your place to dictate what she wears. Maybe count your blessings that she isn’t wearing a white poofy dress and just try to ignore it. Nobdoy is looking at the MOG anyway, all the attention will be on you! Will strain your relationship with your FMIL? Would conflict over this small matter be worth it? I would just keep my opinions to myself and let her wear what she wants.

OP, I’m glad it seems to be working out fine, with your fiance’s intervention. Good for him!

Those dresses were waay over the top for a wedding – obviously selected simply to draw attention to herself. People can be so very self-centered; this is your and your finace’s day, and wearing a dress that screams, LOOK AT ME! AREN’T I SEXY??, regardless of the fact that she’s young and could pull it off, is just disrespectful.

By the way, I loved all the alternative dresses posted in response. You bees have great taste!!

I went to a wedding a few months ago and the grooms mother wore a black spandex-y one shoulder dress that was super short and some very high platform heels…the guys loved it lol!  That’s all I kept hearing from the younger guys all night; how hot the grooms mom was.  I kind of felt embarrased for the groom that all his buddies were gawking at her all night…

Holy moly. I mean, you have to say something. That’s way inappropriate for anyone to wear to a wedding, never mind your FMIL!!
