My mum and I went shopping together for her dress and came across a stunning cream dress that looks ahmazing on her and was marked down from $1200 to $300. I was super excited for her. Not only does she look and feel awesome, but she can say she owns a proper designer dress that she is already planning to convert so she can wear it again. Its floor length lace dress with loose sleeves to her elbows and is fitted all the way through. My dress is a strapless, duchess satin, diamond white, dropped waisted, full skirted wedding dress with a large train.
I mentioned this to my FGMIL and she was horrified, almost disgusted. I dont get what the big deal is? It my MOTHER. Not some other young person in her mid 20’s who may look like she is trying to upstage me. I really dont understand what the huge deal is.
If it was my brothers girlfriend deciding to buy a white ball gown for the wedding, yeah, be disgusted. But its not… sigh

It’s wedding planning, people will be disgusted no matter what you do! Just be happy that your mom will look amazing and so will you!

I don’t get this fixation people have on this issue either, but good for you for not going off the deep end about something so trivial.

This is what my mother wore… no upstaging here… she’ll get over it.

I wouldn’t worry about it. As long as your fine with it that’s all that matters. Everyone may have differing opinions about it but as long as the bride is fine with it then it shouldn’t matter.

I have a good friend whose mother wore a gorgeous, slim, floor-length, cream-colored, brocade gown with gold embroidery as MOB, and she look absolutely stunning. Her daughter wore an elaborate silk ball gown. Both looked beautiful, and no one could possibly have confused them. I think the only people with whom your mother needs to clear her choice of wedding attire are you and your FH.

Do I have yet ANOTHER opportunity to post that clip from Monster-in-Law?? Twice in one day?!?
In all seriousness (a) cream is very different than white (b) people will know who the bride is (c) I’ve seen some lovely MOB dresses in cream, so she’s clearly not the only one wearing the color and (d) it’s your day – who the heck cares as long as you’re happy? 🙂

I agree that when it comes to wedding…there is no such thing as pleasing everyone, so please yourself…people will scoff, give you crazy eyes…at just about every descision you make or every detail you share….
I see nothing wrong with her wearing cream. I actually want my mom to wear something in champagne… cream, champagne..very soft and romantic, should complement the occassion well.

i think it’s a lovely combination! especially for mums/daughters. you want your mum to feel special to some degree anyways.
if i was going to have more than the one bridesmaid at my wedding, i was going to put them all in WHITE dresses :O
I think it looks so lovely: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-CH1-8UP3eqY/Tjsvd8BCKZI/AAAAAAAAAcY/2ATr8uEubes/s1600/white-bridesmaid-dresses.jpg

Kate Moss’ entire wedding party wore white and it was lovely…and nobody complained.
Just ignore the other people!

I don’t understand why people get upset about this either. People will always have to say something about something!

My mom wore an ivory/off white dress to my wedding and I didn’t care one bit! She looked fantastic and she wasn’t trying to upstage me. I actually liked not being the only one in white (not my favorite color).

Good for you for being ok with it and making sure everyone knows you’re ok with it.
