My FMIL deliberately bought dress same color as bridesmaids!

Trust me my FMIL is making me crazy as well, so I get it.

It would be the same as a friend who's not in the wedding party buying the same colour dress and wearing it to the wedding....not really acceptable. Some "rules"/courtesy should just be followed. If she's as flighty as you think, then just chalk it up to ignorance and let it go.... you're so close to going away!!
All that being said, just enjoy YOUR day and the FI. Have an awesome wedding and come back with lots of pics to post.

If it really upsets you, you really should have told her that you didn't want her to match the bridesmaids, I think she thinks she is supposed to match them. Can you tell her that you wanted the BM's to stand out and so you want only them to wear sage green and is it possible to get a dress in another colour?

On another note I remember a recent thread where the FMIL bought a dress the same color as the brides mother, and oh there was quite an uproar about that.
Personally I think this is more about the dress, I think she's trying to give me hints that she is /will always be the center of attention in her son's life and there is nothing I can do about it.

I have a similar situation where a guest asked if it was okay for her to wear an orange dress and her hubby to wear an orange shirt as it would match our wedding colors (pink and orange). I came right out and told her that her husband could not wear the orange shirt as that is what the best man will be wearing...I don't really care but I didn't want people to think that he was part of the wedding party! KWIM?
Anyway, I think you should tell her that she should exchange the dress for another color, however, 5 days before your wedding, that might not be possible. Just breathe and remember that people will be looking at you and your husband to be...not the clueless MIL that is camouflaged in with the wedding party!!! AND I agree with Tam, your Mom is going to stand out more than the MIL, so tell her to WORK IT GIRL!
Congrats and have a GREAT wedding!!!!
