Ok my wedding colors are blush pink and cream with accents of white. My FI asked what colors parents usually wear and I told him usually wedding colors so the pictures look nice. Well he says his mom won’t wear pink and I don’t really want them to wear cream since I’m thinking my dress will be ivory. What other color would they look good in for pictures?

I think a pastel like light blue or lavendar or even a soft gray would be pretty with the blush and cream.

Usually the moms wear a color that is complementary to the wedding colors, but not exact. You don’t want them looking like bridesmaids IMO. I’d let them wear whatever they want personally (except for white/ivory) as long as they love it.

I told mine to wear whatever made them feel beautiful. They both ended up picking something in the light beige category.

I just didnt want like chocolate brown because of my sisters wedding (that was her color) or like navy blue..i like the gray idea though! That would probably look nice!

I agree with a color that compliments the bridal party. But not the same color def don’t want them to blend in and look like bms.

Anything that won’t clash, is the appropriate level of formality, and in which they feel comfortable. If they’ve *asked* you for color guidance, however (please don’t give them a list of colors from which they may choose), I think that any pastel would be nice — dove gray, sky blue, lavender, mint, sunshine, beige…
If they’re like me and they hate pastels, though — jewel tones in blues and purples would still look nice with your overall pinky hues.

those are my colors and my mom is wearing a pinky champagne dress. To be honest, I have no idea what FMIL is wearing but she was originally talking about wearing pink. And my BMs are in navy.
