It being White isn’t the issue that I can see. It’s that the outfit is way too casual and I’m doubting she plans on adding jewelery and rocking nice heels with it to dress it up from the sounds of her. So, I’d be having someone take her shopping and just tell her enough is enough.

I agree that her whole attitude seems disrespectful. When you said “white pants suit” I had something completely different in mind. It’s VERY casual….and there are butterflies on it…I mean it’s just not something you wear to a wedding, especially your son’s wedding. It sounds like your mother has attempted to step in and it hasn’t gone very well. Aside from talking to your Future Mother-In-Law about it, I’m not sure what else you can do. At least it isn’t black jeans?

I would kill her. No way in heck would I let that happen. Noooooo!

I just came back because I felt the very strong need to say “no” again.

I wouldn’t worry about it too much. It is an ugly suit. 🙂 No one is going to take their eyes off of you to notice her

1. It’s frumpy, even if it is wrinkled because she just picked it out…
2. It’s white…
3. Is that a ratty old t-shirt underneath?
4. It’s way too informal for your occasion.
5. It’s not attractive at all!
No way would I be okay with that.
Have your FH handle it with her. What a weirdo.

She looks like those little old ladies you see at the casino! I’d be offended that she doesn’t seem to care about looking nice for your big day, but in the end, she’s the one that looks like an idiot being underdressed and all.

Ummm…no I wouldn’t be OK with it. But if that’s what she pictures herself wearing for her son’s wedding, so be it. My friend’s former Mother-In-Law wore a short, turqoise, beaded dress with a heart-shaped cut out in the back. The wedding was at 2pm, semi-formal. It was a very popular look for prom that year…
I agree with the PP that she is being very immature. I think this is a passive-aggressive way to get attention. She knows damn well this isn’t appropriate. Ignore it.
However, I would instruct the photographer that she is only to be in the family pictures on her side. No other photographs of her.

What’s that saying? “Hell to the NO!!!”

I would not be bothered so much that it’s a white pantsuit. I would be more bothered by the fact that it looks like something an older woman would wear on a church bus tour to Las Vegas or something.

No, it’s WAY too casual. That’s something my Future Mother-In-Law would wear to the mall shopping not to a wedding.

I definitely wouldn’t be okay with it, but SHE’s the one who is going to look out of place.
