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.

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.

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!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
