As MOG, I have a question. I’ve always adhered to MOB picking dress, length, color first and have waited until MOB did that. My question is about color. MOB chose Black (which I personally don’t have a problem with and neither does Bride) – Groomsmen will be in charcoal tuxes and bride’s colors are regal purple and bright pink. Am I okay to wear black as well? Wedding is 6 pm semi-formal. It’s been difficult to find a dress that is “my style” in a subdued color that will work. HELP

Personally I would just ask the bride

Sure…unless the bride requests that you choose another color. If she doesn’t care, I’d say you’re fine.

You can wear any color except white, purple or pink.
Charcoal or pewter would work welll-still a darker color, but not the same as MOB.

I don’t think you can wear the same exact color as the MOB. It sucks, but I think that’s the etiquette.

I think you should ask the bride too! I don’t see why it would be a problem!

I think you should ask the bride. As a bride myself, I would have NO PROBLEM with you wearing the same color as my mother, but I know some brides are sticklers about what is/isn’t acceptable. If she says you can’t wear black, I would go with a gray or charcoal colored dress.

i think a charcoal dress would be great! im a little one sided tho because thats one of my main colors 🙂 I dont think you should wear the same color as the MOB tho.

What about Silver? Or a dark purple?
