    CS, most of the people on her side (myself included) agreed with her sentiment, but not her way of handling it.  I would honestly be kind of uncomfortable if one of the moms wanted to wear a long ivory gown, especially because my dress doesn't exactly scream "bride" and I'm not wearing a veil.  I would probably ask if she'd seen anything else that she liked, honestly.But if she pressed the issue (as the poster's FMIL did), I would let it go, let the mom in question look kind of dumb for wearing white to a wedding, and probably wouldn't even notice the day of.  That was the advice that several people gave her, which is why it was really annoying when she got so rude.

    Sometimes I feel like people think that brides are delicate little flower princesses who get all dressed up and pretty for one special moment of their dreams, when really they're just normal people who just happen to be getting married. Things shouldn't have to be sugar-coated for grown-ass women. -mstar284
