I think that since it’s shorter it doesn’t look bridal… but it’s still too white in my opinion. I don’t really know where the whole don’t wear white to a wedding thing started, but it’s a big deal to me. It just depends on how much you care about it. Kim Kardashian had her whole bridal party in white because she didn’t want all of the focus on her (yeah right lol). Personal preference.

Appears Gold to me and not very Bridal. I don’t see an issue with it at all.

I think it is a ‘party’ dress, not a ‘wedding’ dress. It really depends on the tone of the day. I don’t think the colour is a probelm as long as you are comfortble with her wearing it, apparently, you’re not.
If you think she will react badly, and you don’t want the fall out, perhaps leave it. You will stand up and people will come to their own conclusions about her dress. If you cannot bear it, tell her about it sooner, rather than later, so she can change the dress or buy herself another one, also be prepared for her not to understand your POV and refuse to change it.

am I looking at a different dress??? How on earth is this short? It comes to the 6′ tall model’s knees. Unless your mom is a giant, I do NOT think it’s too short.
As for color, if you look at the “purple” option, it looks black on my screen…so I would want to see this dress in real life to make a color decision. If you’re uncomfortable with it, though, you should speak up!

Hopefully when you see it in person, it looks less white than it does on the computer screen. I definitely think it’s inappropriate for a 70 year old mother to be wearing, but that’s just me!
If it bothers you, I think you should tell her you’d prefer if she wore something that wasn’t so close to white/ivory.

If you look at the color options for the dress it says light gold. And thats exactly what it looks like to me! champagne-ish

Can she jazz it up with colored accessories?

Eeeh…. My mom bought an ivory outfit and I had to tell her to return it. She may look silly in pictures in a light colored dress like that next to you.

I agree with the other Bees–the ranges of white go very far in the spectrum these days, lol 🙂 I wouldn’t want my mom wearing white on this special of an occassion where I’m the one supposed to be wearing it.
Can you give her a guideline, maybe tell her what color makes her look the most beautiful (and hint it’s not white, lol)? Try reverse psychology or something! Good luck! 😉

I honestly cannot tell if its champagne,ivory or gold but the material appears to be shimmery. With outdoor lighting, flash photography etc it might turn up white! To be honest, I’d play it safe and stay away from that whole end of the spectrum.

I was thinking the same as Westwood . I was surprised seeing this as a MOB dress. Looks really young.

first think that came in my mind was ” wheres the rest of it” lol I would ask her if she wear a different color that you like that complements her

I think it looks gold, but the style is not appropriate for a wedding. Especially not on the mothrer of the bride!
