    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.

    @Tess63110:  THIS.

    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.
