My mom has selected a dress she loves for our wedding. It comes in multiple colors and she can’t decide which she would like. We both were thinking it would be nice for her to coordinate with our wedding colors but she doesn’t necessarily have to match. This is the dress:
It comes in both Navy and Eggplant. My wedding colors are navy blue, lime green and gray. The bridesmaids will be wearing navy and the men will be in gray. Would it be better to wear the navy to match or the eggplant so that she stands out a little bit more. I think the eggplant color would still look good with our color scheme. Also, her skin tone is similar to that of the model but her hair is a darker brown.
She and I are both on the fence so I thought I would ask you bees!

I can see why you are torn. I would go with the navy. My only reason is that I think it is just a nicer colour. Good luck!

@kanneb: I have that darker hair color and navy is flattering on me so that’s what I went with 🙂

@kanneb: They are both very pretty! I don’t think you could make a wrong choice. Separately, I like the colors equally as much. However, I chose eggplant simply because the two Navy’s could be very different. Burgandy coordinates well with navy. If the two blues were different in tone, it could maybe look like a “mistake?” Not sure if that would matter to you or not, though. 🙂
Your mom will look gorge!

I was going to say whichever one your mom likes better, but then I read that navy was one of your wedding colors. In this case, I would definitely go with the eggplant. I honestly think it looks nicer anyway.

I think she should pick whichever color she feels she looks best in. Although the MB doesn’t normally wear the exact same color as the BM’s, it wouldn’t really matter if she did.
There will be precious few pics where she and the BM’s are together.

I was just going to say that it is very likely that the two, navy blue tones could clash, making one look “off.” I absolutely would not risk trying to match two different dark blues, because they likely will not be the same color. Even if they somehow were the same color, I know that I would want my mother to stand out from my bridesmaids.
