Maybe you can go shopping with her and help steer her in a different direction? Or show her pictures of dresses you think she would look stunning in-flattery is your friend!

Good idea, tessabella76!  I second that!  Or could you mention that you want her to stand out from the bridesmaids???

I would suggest going shopping with her too!  It’d be a fun "bonding" experience and that way you can veto/give the seal of approval on what something you like!

What do you mean clashing?  Does it matter what color she wears as long as the dress is pretty and appropriate?

Are you worried about your FMIL’s taste?  Maybe she’ll wear something that has some red in it.  She’s not going to be in most of the pics with your BM’s – so I’m sure it will be fine.

I think if you give her some ideas from magazine or website pictures that you saw and like for her. You might want to show her her wedding pictures that have mothers in the picture.  Point out that the mother doesn’t usually match and usually has something that coordinates but isn’t the exact color.  Remind her that she wants to stand out.  Also, if you have a future sister-in-law, she might be able to help you convince your Future Mother-In-Law more easily.  Lastly, if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em–give her a color swatch of the color the girls are wearing so that at least her red will coordinate/match your BM’s dresses.
