Help! Which MOB dress?

Recommended Posts

Compared to your FMIL dress I don't know if either of them look "beachy" even though I think both are gorgeous!

That being said I think your mom should wear whatever she feels comfrortable in. If it's really important to you then I would talk to her and try to convince her. But I don't think it'll ruin the day/wedding if your mom is wearing something formal.

I love dress Number 1 and think it would be perfect for the beach wedding, I agree the other one is a lot more formal and is so dark, it might stick out. That being said if she is soo convinced number 2 is right for the beach maybe this might be a battle you shouldn't fight. Also maybe she will find a dress she likes better that is more formal than the first but still beach appropriate - then she can wear the first one to the rehearsal - doesn't hurt to look she might realize she already has the perfect dress.

 

Maybe when she sees the bm dresses & MIL dress & your dress together she will see it is really formal. Maybe create a collage of all the dresses and one with dress #1 & dress#2 and you mom will see the first dress is great for the beach. (or maybe she can change after the ceremony so she gets best of both worlds)

Thanks everyone for your response!! I have tried countless times, along with my father to convince her that dress #1 is PERFECT for the ceremony with no luck. I may have to show her all of your responses lol.

I should've clarified that the ceremony will be in a Gazebo overlooking the beach at 5pm.

Haha, I love the veto power. I should have claimed it long ago but my mom is a stubborn one, what she wants is what she gets.

I love this idea and I hope the collage will convince my mom further! I will keep you updated.

I would go with #1 for the beach...its gorgeous and flowy and beachy. If your dress is super formal #2 might look okay but if you have more of a beachy dress I think #2 would look strange. Just my 2 cents....

I love dress number 1. I would suggest that she wear that one as well- maybe search out some pictures of other wedding parties/MOB's on the beach? That way she may come to her own conclusion that dress #2 might be too formal.

 

Good Luck!
