Dress Difficulty: Is it Appropriate to Wear a Dress Similiar to the Bridesmaids?

Q: Is it appropriate for the groom’s mother to wear a dress that has similar colors as the bridesmaids?

A: The guidelines are the mothers should try not to wear the same color as the bridesmaids or the bride is wearing. Nor should both mothers wear the same color. However, again these are only guidelines.If the bride has no objection, it would be fine for the groom’s mother to wear similar colors as the bridesmaids as long as the style and fabric of her outfit doesn’t imitate that of the bridesmaids’ dresses.

    What about this new trend of dressing brides maids in white? I thought the bride should be the only one wearing white…
