If she likes her outfit, why not. lol. The attention will be on the bride & groom anyways; your mother is just going to complement them! If you’re so worried about committing a faux pas, suggest she wears a cream colored bolero or accessorize with striking color to contrast the bride’s attire (:

Do you think it will bother your brother and his FI?  My mom told me she was going to wear a white pant suit to my wedding, lol.  I told her that only the bride should wear white and she was like “oh, ok” and decided she’s going to wear a black dress.

I think some people may think it is rude, but others aren’t even going to notice.  Personally, for my own wedding, I’d prefer if I was the only one wearing white… but if someone showed up in a white dress or something, I think I’d get over it 🙂

Eh, it’s not so much of a faux pas anymore but I would check with your brother and his fianceé to see what they think. They might feel like it’s a slight to them. 

That being said, I wore a predominately white dress (with black and jewel accents) to a friend’s wedding but I did check with her first that it was ok. And I certainly wasn’t the only guest wearing white. But the bride didn’t mind because she was wearing gold so she stood out anyways.

I think you should ask your brothers fiance. It sounds silly, but some people might be upset if someone wore white to their wedding. Me being one of them! haha. I wouldnt throw a fit, but I would secretly be a little perturbed! I think its a person to person opinion – just ask her, odds are she wont mind! 😀
