@Krystalcole07:  I generally advise brides to pick a color that is along the same color palette as the bridesmaid dresses. But do not pick too close of color, she is to stand out and be honored, but not mistaken for a Matron of Honor.

My BMs are wearing a Wine color and my mom is wearing a slightly lighter shade of purple. She’s also wearing a TOTALLY different style – hers is short and off-shoulder, with a silver wrap and silver shoes. My BMs are in long, chiffon, halter-top dresses with black shoes.

My BM’s wore light aqua.

My mother wore a black/gray/white floral patterned with red shoes (color of my flowers was red).

My MIL wore a lacey cream loose suit.

Both of them ran the whole “wearing white” thing past me and I said I couldn’t care less, lol.

It looked beautiful in our pictures.

Mine wore a colour that wasn’t part of the wedding but did go well with the colours.

@Prewitt Your mom is adorable- she looks SO happy there!

My colors were gray, dustry rose, navy, silver- my man is wearing a gray suit, my MOH is wearing an antique rose and my mother is wearing a navy skirt suit. We went shopping in the garment district here in NYC on Friday and without her knowledge I kind of steered her in that direction…

My bridesmaids are wearing plum, and my mother is wearing a fab deep wine colored dress. Very 50s style very her that goes great with the wedding colors and theme. 🙂
