Mother of the Groom- wearing a white dress too----HELP

Recommended Posts

Okay, so I just found out today that my FI mother is wearing a white dress!!!!!

This seriously can not be happening, right?

 

What the heck to I do? She is throwing me a bridal shower this weekend.

We found out about a week before our wedding that my DH's grandma was going to wear a white dress. My DH freaked out and called immediately and told her no way no how. I really didn't care but he did. I would tell your Dh to take care of it. That is just common knowledge you don't wear white to someone elses wedding even if you are the MOTG.

Wow, that is really rude and thoughtless of her. Your FI needs to call her and tell her that is not okay and she can wear it another time on the trip, but she can not wear it to the wedding.

seriously - she must just not know wedding etiquette...can FI have a talk with her?

how did you find out? are they the kind of family who do practical jokes? like just to see if you freak and then they all laugh about it? (ok not so funny, but i do know people like this)

 

it's pretty widely known etiquette that no one but the bride wears white (unless you're doing an all-white wedding, which looks awesome). i wouldn't have cared if my mom wore white but i certainly wouldn't have wanted other guests whispering about what a faux-pas she had made behind her back either, KWIM?

 

if you're really bothered by it have your FI talk to her and tell her it bothers HIM.

Oh sweetie, I'm so sorry. I agree with the others, I think your FI needs to talk to his mom. This isn't something that you should have to deal with!

Definitely let your FI handle this! It's his mother, so he needs to let her know that is not ok! Why does she want to wear white? You could suggest that she wear the same color as your bridal party. This may make her feel more included and get her out of wearing white. I hope everything works out!

i agree with everyone. You should have your FI talk to her, he can probably explain it to her calmly and get it done. You don't want to be the one to say it, it might cause too many issues.

Oh my, that's awful. But I agree with the other girls - ask your FI to talk to her. Maybe (although I don't know how) but maybe she just didnt even think of it!?! I'll cross my fingers for you that that's it and all will be ok!

    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
