    Hmmm... I don't think I would like it for the mother of the bride at the actually ceremony.
    Maybe for the welcome dinner or another night out.

    Okay I don't know... I wouldn't get her a dress without her trying it on first. She has a super important role as mother of the bride and you want her to look almost as good as you (the bride) hehehe. What about something a lil bit simpler?

      See what happens when you are so passive on some things like me...

      Thanks for your opinions....I will have to bring it up to my sister. I am visiting her this week. My sister is hard headed and I think sometimes she takes offense to things...maybe not...but maybe I will tell my mom that I don't like it and then she can go try it on and tell my sister she just doesn't feel comfortable in it?

      I know that isn't the best way to go about it...

        Your colors are brown and pink right? Is that dress black and white? Not that the MOB's dress has to match but it might not look right in the pictures. In my opinion it would be too busy.

          Honestly I dont see anything wrong with your mom wearing that. As long as she likes it and feels comfortable in it then I think thats what matters.

            No, it's brown and white....that's why my sister thought it would be good because it went with the colors..

            Yes they are brown and pink...

              I think the print is fine. It's a cute dress (I just don't personally like those necklines, but that's b/c I don't think they look good on me!). I'd wait to see until after she tries it on. Just be honest with your opinion with her b/c if it doesn't float your boat .. you DO have a right to let her know.

                This is your wedding...not your sister's. If you think it is too much, help your mom find something that you like and would be comfortable for her. I don't think this was your sister's call to make.

                  Cute dress & I like the colors. Honest opinoin - I dont think it looks like a "mother of the bride" the day of the wedding type of dress. Can she wear it another night when everyone gets together for dinner or drinks?

                    I don't think it's a good mother of the bride dress either. An easy way to suggest it's not the right dress to your sister, is to say you are worried the print won't photograph or film well. I don't think it would. Stripes can look funny on film, so I'd worry about wavy stripes a lot.

                    I think it's a cute dress, but it's also not something I'd pick for a big event. She'll be photographed a lot. It should be special. I also think it looks like a young style. If you mom is young or looks young it could work.
