@jalday01:  Traditionally, the Mog wears beige. Do you have an accent color? maybe your mom can wear gold or silver?

Beige? I’ve never heard that.

Anyways, your MOB and MOG are grown women can’t they just pick their own dress and colours? I would never dream of telling someone specifically a dress or colour to wear if they weren’t actually part of the WP…and even then I still probably wouldn’t.

@jalday01:  As long as their choice doesn’t clash with green or purple, or with each other, they should wear whatever they want. But it seems like they really want you to make a decision for them in terms of color. Since none of the bridal party are wearing it exclusively, I would say that the hunter green would be great, if they can find any dresses in that shade. If not, navy could be nice, or a rich russet brown, or the eggplant purple, as long as the dresses are a definitively different style than the bridesmaids.

Hope this is helpful!

i think in general any color of dresses is fine. maybe go and pick it out with them. i think the most important is that it looks good, and feels comfortable for them!

@jalday01: nice that they want make sure they fit in with your colour theme. It will depend on what colour and style of dress suits them but as a PP said as long as they don’t clash

We gave no input on what anyone could wear, but were asked our colors: which were middle of the road purple and green.  Everyone who came to our small wedding took it upon themselves (even the photographer hired!) to wear those colors (except my loony mother wore black lol even tho she loves DH).  It was amazing as it was their choice.  And my crazy mom just looks odd lol.

We told people we didn’t care what they wore as long as they didn’t show up naked :).

I’d say any version of a light purple or even pale pink would suffice.

@Luayne:  I didn’t know about the beige thing until my future brother in law’s wedding. There is a saying that I think is pretty terrible it goes something along the lines of the MOG is to “show up, shut up, and wear beige.” Not something I agree with at all, but something that my parent’s generation seems to have heard about.  I’m personally letting my MOG pick her own color/dress. My only restriction is that the silouhette of her gown be dissimiliar to mine and that she pick a color that compliments the wedding colors.

@ArtDecoLisa:  Oh I heard that saying before and it was just someone’s statement being rude just to get what they wanted years ago. These days there are so many ‘traditions’ and ‘rules’ being broken. Honestly I can’t imagine telling grown women what to wear.
