Is it proper for the mother of the bride to wear a red dress when the brides dress has a lot of red in it doesn't that take away from the bride?

No woman going to the wedding should wear the exact color of the bride. In the case of this bride wearing a wedding dress with a lot of red in it then it is fine if the mother wears a more solid color of dress or it will take away from the bride. The bride is the focal point and thus, the wedding party and female guests should not dress in the colors of the bride.This is up to you, the bride. Oftentimes, the bride will want the mother of the bride to wear a dress that is complementary to the colors of the wedding. In this case, the secondary color of your wedding dress is red. So, it is appropriate for the MOB to wear a solid red dress or a dress that has red tones in it alongside another color or colors. This really does not take away from the bride's dress or the bride herself.

Yes, it is fine for the mother of the bride to wear a long chiffon dress in a muted color. Take your daughter's wedding dress and put it up against your dress. If the dress looks too muted and is white in color then you should not wear it because the bride should always be the focal point in the wedding; but if the dress looks fine and the muted print will show up when the photographer takes pictures then it's fine to wear.
