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!

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to. 
    • Hello Everyone! Thank you for sharing your experience about Tom Moks. We have read it very careful before we booked. But at the end of the day we were very happy with his service. I consider myself as a difficult customer but this time everything went just smooth. We had our wedding in Sayulita, close to Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco. He came on time, he stayed with us late night.  After all we had to wait like 3weeks to receive the pictures, but we LOVED them. He sent us more pictures that he promises in the contract, and in 85% they were perfect.  The other 15% we asked him to edit once more, and he did it, without hesitation. This is his official Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/tom_moks_photography/  Personally I would buy his service again, but the decision is always yours. E.    
    • Hello!  We are getting married at El Dorado Royale in August 2019.  We are trying to decide between La Salon Royale and Los Tucanes for the reception. I vastly prefer Tucanes but I’m worried everyone will be hot and miserable since I’ve been told it doesn’t have AC. Does anyone have experience with either location? If Tucanes, is there a way to get fans or cool it down? If La Salon, I’d love tips on how to decorate inexpensively so that it doesn’t look so “ballroom”-y. Thank you very much!
