As a MOB, I don’t think they need to go together.  I don’t want to look like I m trying to match my daughter.  As long as the formality is similar and the color doesn’t clash with anything, I think she should get what she feels good in.  At least that’s what my daughter told me.  She wants me to feel good.  Dang, I’m gonna miss her. 😉

@MsGinkgo:  I’ve never heard of co-ordinating the wedding dress with the MOB dress.

My mom didn’t coordinate. She picked a dress and color that worked for her although she did pick one of my wedding colors just because gold looks so nice on her.

@MsGinkgo:  With your support, I’m sure your mother will look wonderful.  And your stepmother won’t look better than her.  She’s the MOB!  She’ll be glowing that day.

I think your mother should choose a dress in which she feels fabulous. I have never seen  a MOB dress tht didn’t go with the bride’s dress.

I can’t image that with most dresses you would need to do this. My mother did have to coordinate with my dress since it was royal blue. But with a white or ivory, there would be no need.
