Hi there, Quick question: I’m struggling to tell my mom what colour dress she should be looking for. My girls are wearing blush, boys in navy/blue and my “colors” are gold & blush. Mother of the Groom wants to wear gold and my mom can’t seem to make up her mind. Any advice?! I don’t care if they match per se, I just dont want them to clash.

Well, I subscribe to the tradition that the MOB has first choice of dress color. With your color scheme, and depending on your mother’s coloring and color preferences, I probably would suggest a champagne or gold dress for her.
However, if your FMIL has already chosen a gold dress, your mother probably won’t want to risk wearing the same color. With your palette, perhaps she could choose a copper dress or a navy dress, as long as the navy she chooses won’t clash with the groomsmen’s attire.

I told my mom to wear whatever.. she ended up choosing a black & white pantsuit, because she was doing a lot of legwork for the wedding.
MIL wore an emerald green dress, which I’m pretty sure was a bridesmaids dress. I didn’t care what they wore as long as it wasn’t outlandish.

As Brielle said, traditionally the MOB chose her dress first then notified the MOG. Given that that ship has sailed; keeping in mind that she is not part of the wedding party; she is an adult woman who has been dressing herself since long before you were born; and most anything will go with your color scheme, if she is asking for your opinion, I suggest champagne, rose gold , copper, bronze or pewter.
MOG should be able to tell you or show you what kind of gold she is wearing so they do not look like the Bobbsey Twins.

I feel like she could wear gold, blush, or navy and look awesome!
