I think these days you can do whatever you want…I don’t see anything wrong with them matching so long as the dresses themselves are different. Don’t go out of your way to reach for another color to coordinate if you are happy with the eggplant color!

As long as the dresses aren’t the same it doesnt matter, I would pick a neutral color, silver, black, tan, or something that goes with your color scheme if you are fine with them all being in the eggplant color then that is all that matters

Our mothers are wearing turquoise, as are the flowergirl and bridesmaid. The groomsmen and ringbearer have turquoise ties. Our other color is magenta pink, but it’s being used for things like flowers, paper, etc.

My mom wore a totally different color dress than my MIL.  She wore a pink dress that looked amazing against the flowers. My MIL on the other hand wore a champagne dress.

You should probably talk to them and get a feel for what colors suit them best. Similar to how some brides give their bridesmaids color choices, you could send them swatches of the right color.  You could compare all those colors against each other, your dress and BM dresses to make sure they are just right.

I let them pick out what ever colors they chose as long as it was within the color family, my BMs dresses will also be eggplant purple but with lavender, so I suggested berry colors, cranberry, purples, amethyst, those type.  I figured it’s difficult to find a dress when you’re too limited to a certain color.  I want to make it easy for them.

Are the mothers supposed to coordinate with the rest of the wedding colors? I just found out my FMIL plans to wear blue, and that is definitely not one of our wedding colors. I kind of want to ask her to fit into the color scheme, but I don’t want to start any drama…you know how sensitive things with the FMIL can be…
