I’m Australian and I’m old enough to have been to 20-30 weddings. I never heard of parents co-ordinating with the bridal party, or each other, until I joined WeddingBee. (And generally they’re all in separate photos – parents don’t tend to be in bridal party photos, and there’s only a small number of photos with both sets of parents in them).

I suggest you let her choose whatever she wants, unless she asks you for guidance.

catherinedarcy:  I think it is courteous to tell her what the bridal party colors are and what the MOB is wearing. I don’t think that constitutes telling her what to wear.

The mothers do not need to coordinate with the wedding party but it is nice for them to wear colors that do not clash.

My bridesmaids are in an aqua colour, and both moms are wearing navy.  I went shopping with my mom, and FMIL asked me to go dress shopping with her when she visited us.  She was quite excited about it (I think because she only has two sons she doesn’t have a child to do “girly” things with)  But in general, I think parents can dress themselves unless they ask for input.
