It looks like a wedding dress.

When my sons got married I asked my DILS to help me choose what to wear.

I loved what they chose and obviously both they and I felt as though their choices were both beautiful and appropriate.

If the bride’s OR groom’s mother isn’t willing to deliberately and consciously place her ego aside in favor of the bride’s for one day out of her life, I’d watch for turf wars to follow.

sweetness09:  With your dress, I would be fine with this on my mother.  My dress is a beaded sheath, however, and if my mom showed me that,  I wouldn’t be thrilled. Since yours is so different,  I think it is a compliment, like another bee said.

Unless the bride also were wearing a beaded, champagne-colored, form-fitting dress, I think an MOB wearing this dress at her daughter’s formal, evening wedding would look elegant, beautiful, and perfectly in place.

It’s beautiful! Context is everything – how similar to the bride’s dress is it? If  quite different in style and the bride is in more of a white dress, I think it’d be a beautiful MoB dress.

No matter what you do people will have something to say, good and bad.  Do what makes you happy. 

On another note.  I have noticed weddings trending to more metallics and more formal attire for both wedding party and guest.  I think it is a reaction to the overly laid back and rustic themes that have been so popular for the past 5 or so years.  So this style is deffinetly a trend setter!

sweetness09:  love it providing that mob has figure to support it. I’d say “age appropriate” but some women look amazing at ages most look their chronological age
