Hey bees, I need a little help on what color my mother and fmil dresses should be for my wedding. My wedding colors are turquoise and chocolate brown. My bridesmaids are wearing chocolate brown and my flower girls are wearing turquoise. What colors are the mother of the bride and groom dresses suppose to be because I have no freaking clue! HELP!!!

They can wear whatever color they feel beautiful in as long as it doesn’t clash or exactly match the bridesmaid’s colors. For my son’s wedding next month I am wearing a honey colored dress and the MOB is wearing chocolate brown. The bridesmaids are wearing a dark grey-blue (the wedding colors are blue and latte). As long as the mother’s don’t wear white, everything is good!

i’ve heard the MOB/MOG shouldn’t wear white OR black because the bride is wearing white and black represents loss/mourning/disapproval. my mom is struggling with this decision right now too but those are the two colors that she definitely doesn’t want for those reasons.

I agree with futuremominlaw. The colors of those dresses should compliment the wearer, regardless of color. If they are the type to prefer matching, I can tell you now that turquoise looks good on just about everyone. Perhaps various shades of brown and/or turquoise? Just some thoughts. Dont’ drive yourself crazy. Let them decide and don’t worry about it. I’m sure they’ll pick what they want and they will consider your color choices. If they are experiencing an issue or problem, I’m sure they’ll let you know.

I agree that shades of brown and turquoise would be good choices. Maybe one could wear something champagne and the other a light turquoise? As long as they wear something that looks coordinated but doesn’t clash you should be fine.
The dresses you posted are pretty, but I am not sure that they are appropriate for MOB/MOG. I would honestly avoid anything that is white, especially on top, because pics that are from the waist up will look like they are completely in white. I would also avoid dressing them in too similar of styles.

The general rule is that the MOB chooses first and the MOG chooses something to compliment her. Our moms went shopping together and decided to each get knee-length dresses in shades of dark purple.
Wedding colors are navy, dark pink, and white.

Not sure what the rules are… all I know is that my mom did not want white or black (too wedding dress-like and too sombre), and for sure did not want to match the bridesmaid dresses at all. MOG hasn’t chosen an outfit yet, but if she had, I’d bet that my mom wouldn’t have wanted to match her either.
