This is my moms mother of the bride dress! i love it and she does (dress one charcoal) to but my Uncle had a freak out about the color. My bridesmaids have a purplish color (eggplant). we wanted something that would not clash in pictures. What do you guys think is the color to dark? What are the normal mother of the bride colors?? The second dress is an olive color, which was another option.

I love it! Whats wrong with a dark color? Its NOT black! (Personally I wouldn’t even mind black, but apparently most people take that to mean the mother doesn’t support the marriage?? However charcoal isn’t the same)

I think it’s PERFECT!!! It will blend well, yet not stand out in the pics. And charcoal is more flattering than black to many skin tones.

Nothing wrong with it at all!! My mother wore black, and no one thought it meant she didn’t support the marriage – she’s just the kind of woman who wears black. She wore black at her OWN wedding to my stepdad, ha. I know that MissNerdy is right that some people don’t think black is an appropriate color, but that depends on your region/social circle.
But I digress, since that dress isn’t even black. I think it looks fantastic on your mom!

I think that dress is absolutely beautiful and looks great on your mom. Your uncle shouldn’t quit his day job to give fashion advice.

I love the gray dress and your mom looks amazing in it. I personally love gray and charchol.

Don’t take this the wrong way, but your mom is smokin’!
I love the dress she chose. I don’t think it’ll clash with eggplant–gray doesn’t usually “clash” with anything.

@BothCoasts: “Don’t take this the wrong way, but your mom is smokin’!”
My thoughts exactly when I scrolled down! Man, I’d love to have that figure someday when I’m the mother of the bride! Heck, I’d love to have that figure now!

I think it looks perfect on her, I think the dress design is perfect, I think the color itself is perfect for a MOB, as well as with your color scheme. Oh and did I mention that I think it’s perfect?

My mom is wearing a similar color – like a gunmetal gray….. (or is it grey?) My bridesmaids are wearing Plum. And my dress is ivory over light gold……. so obviously, this stuff doesn’t really bother me so much, but I think they’ll all look amazing and that’s what matters the most! Now if she was wearing white or ivory I might have something to say, but other than that – I’d go with the first dress – she looks amazing in it!
