The dresses that my mom and MIL will be wearing for the wedding are nearly the same, exact dress... Is that bad?!
They both look so beautiful in it, they match my wedding colors, and I simply don't have the heart to tell them. My MIL has had her dress since forever ago and she bought it at Younkers. My mom had purchased a dress from a catalog that she really liked but I wasn't too keen on - but of course I wasn't going to tell her. She got it and it didn't fit right. So, I told her we should go looking locally. We came across a dress while at David's Bridal. Now, I don't know if I had my MIL's dress in mind (subconsciously) or what but it wasn't until my mom got it home that I realized the similiarity. When my mom tried the dress on in the store, I cried because she looked so radiant.
I've only seen my MIL in her dress once about a month ago but from what I remember, they are very similar dresses...if not the same one! - SAME color even.
Do I say anything? Is it tacky? I mean, I know in the grand scheme of life, this is not the end of the world but see...my mom doesn't like my MIL at all.
I would hate for them to show up at the church and see each other and have their spirits dampered.
I don't know, am I making a big deal out of nothing?? Thanks, ladies!!!
