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

Etiquette rules say that the mother of the bride chooses her dress and then the mother of the groom, so the fact that she would choose a dress and not confirm with you isn't exactly normal as well. Now I know that we aren't much for ettiquette around here, but there are some rules that still matter. If this is one that you care about, def have a talk with her. Does FI have a sister? It might come better better from a female.

She did end up getting a white dress with pink and orange flowers on it - which I don't mind. As long as it's not solid white. Maybe this is the case with your MOTG??
If not, I definitely agree with having FI talk to her...

Also, do you have a wedding website for guests to view? We had a section on ours giving guests an idea of what to wear to our beach wedding. Here's what it said, Stay comfortable for our ceremony on the beach... Sundresses, khaki pants, collared t-shirts are all welcome. Jackets and ties are not required. Comfy sandals or flip flops or just leave your shoes at home! Don't forget your sunglasses... (ummmm, don't wear white. lol)
Its a joke, kind of. I think it gets the point across.

She sent me a picture of the dress and I was like "Really, you have got to be kidding me". I printed the picture and showed it to my FI and he was like "why are you showing me your wedding dress?" I said exactly...this is your mothers dress and he was like are you serious, I will talk to her.
It's just really annoying, as we all know it can get kind of stressful planning a wedding that is NOT CLOSE TO YOU and I just didnt need this on my plate...this is my final week and I just freaked out. Our wedding is next month!
Anyways, my FI talked to his sister and she reassured him that she would never let her get a white dress. It is an all tan dress and she will be wearing gold shoes. SO, my FI and I are going to see the dress and decide for ourselves.
It's just a pain im my ass because they are throwing me a shower this weekend and I know they are going to bring it up a million times.
I will keep everyone updated.
Thanks again for your thought and comments
