We get overwhelmed with wedding things so I understand the question, but imho this doesn't matter. Many brides have mothers who are dead or not involved in their lives...if their mothers made it to their weddings I bet they wouldn't care what color outfit they put on. Just a thought
and as for the perspective you had at the end ... that's the way i feel. i just want my mother THERE ... she keeps asking what color she should wear and is it ok if she wears pants and i keep telling her to just wear whatever makes her feel beautiful and comfortable that day. we almost lost her in a car accident last year, so what she wears is the least of my concern!
