Of all the little pains of wedding planning I never imagined that finding my mother a dress would be one of them! My future mother-in-law is a size four and has already purchased her an expensive champagne-colored dress. Well, my mother is not a size four and doesn't exactly have the money to splurge on a dress. It's not helping the the future in-law is pushing her towards colors that would compliment the champgane color. My groom's mother is a very sweet lady but I'm becoming extremely defensive of my mother lately. I want my mom to have a beautiful dress, be confident, and not worry about his mother. I guess what I'm asking is for advice on how to politely ask my future mother-in-law to back off. The mother of the bride shouldn't have to worry about matching the mother of the groom. Also, we've been looking at David's Bridal and department stores...are there any other hidden spots for MOB dresses that flatters any mother without breaking the bank?
