Can the mother of the bride wear black?

I love how chic the below outfit from Ann Taylor looks. I think it would make a great bridesmaid outfit or even a Mother of the Bride outfit. Although black bridesmaid dresses are pretty common now and guests wearing black is no big deal anymore I think a black MOB dress might be the final frontier that no one would be willing to cross into because supposedly wearing black to a wedding means you disapprove of the marriage. I think the only exception is for extremely formal weddings and then black in acceptable. Now, my mom is plus size and Ann Taylor doesn't make plus size (booo! wake up Ann Taylor!) so she couldn't wear this anyway but I have the feeling if I suggested black to her she'd say no-way.
