    I think you are right, the MOG should follow your lead.  Maybe your daughter can go shopping with her if she has no daughters, I did the same with my Future Mother-In-Law.

    I agree with Chela429-the MOG will follow your lead.  I don’t think that wearing a black skirt is bad-I did vote no, but that was before I read how you were going to lighten it up with gold shoes and such. I think you will look very nice 🙂

    I’ve told both our mothers to buy whatever they feel comfortable and beautiful wearing. This will likely mean one wears a long dress and the other a very short dress. What mattered to us was that our mothers are looking happy and are comfortable.

    I don’t think that two different length dresses will look odd, especially if hers isn’t a casual style short dress.  I think that your gold sandals will help your outfit look more summery.  And, I think it is quite common for mothers to wear long dresses even when the bridesmaids wear short dresses. So, I don’t think that you’ll look out of place at all.
