MOB Dress Etiquette
My mom and I have been searching for the perfect dress for her to wear to my wedding in August. My colors are hot pink, lime, and silver as an accent. The girls are wearing hot pink (shown below on hanger) and the guys will be wearing silver suits. My mom has had the idea of the dress she wants to wear in her mind but hasnt been able to find it bc there are so many things she wanted in one dress.
However, yesterday we went shopping and she found the perfect dress, I couldn't believe it, it seriously met all of her criteria. The only thing she was concerned about is it being fuschia with purplish undertones (it only comes in this color or black - Picture of mom in dress is below). She didn't want to wear a similar color to the bridesmaids - I totally don't see a problem with it - I think she looks great, no matter the color.
So she asked me to ask my fellow knotties if etiquette wise, is it ok for the MOB to wear a similar color dress as the bridesmaids even though the dresses look nothing alike? Is there an unwritten rule about this? I mean, ultimately, I think she should just get the dress - it's her daughter's wedding and she should wear whatever she feels most comfortable and beautiful in - this is totally it.
TIA :] and sorry for the novel.. lol
