yup. Mother-In-Law wore silver/ charcoal dress MOB wore a champange/ pale silver dress.

I originally asked my mom to pick a neutral to coordinate and not clash with our wedding colours (white, ivory, silver, gold, blush)…… and I am pretty sure she’s going with blue.

To be honest, the NON-neutral colours looked way better on her… and now I don’t really care what she wears!

I would prefer my our moms match, and I will suggest it, but It’s not a huge deal.

Really, our colors are pinks, black, & ivory, so I doubt either will be able to find anything to match that fit their age/style. Pastel pink would be perfect [bridesmaids will be in a dark/hotish pink].

Nope.  Didn’t care what color they wore.  My mom happen to pick a purple dress without knowing my colors were red and purple (bms were in red) and Mother-In-Law picked a gold dress.

The moms in my wedding picked colors that contrasted and I loved it!

I didn’t even know that was a thing, until my mom actually brought it up. Maybe she learned that from my sister, who got married two years ago. So she wants to wear blue, which is one of my colors. But I honestly don’t care; I just want her to pick a dress she feels beautiful in!

Personally, I don’t care what Future Mother-In-Law wears as long as it’s not a white dress (even then, it would just be irritating and yet another sign of how rude, tactless, and clueless she is). She could just show up in jeans if she wanted to, and although I might be hurt that she didn’t think more of the occasion, it would only reflect on her.

I don’t care if our mothers coordinate with each other or my wedding colors. They’re guests like any other, and I want them to wear what flatters them and makes them feel comfortable and beautiful.

@lazy:  Yes I specifially asked my mom and Future Mother-In-Law to wear something that would go with the rest of us

Nope, our moms are total opposites.  FI’s mom shops at LL Bean, my mom shops at Forever 21, so I figured it’d be easier to just not care.

My mom is coordinating with our colors and my FI’s mom won’t be at the wedding

No, this doesn’t matter to me at all. I just don’t want them wearing white/ivory. I really want them to look nice.

My mom and Future Mother-In-Law will be wearing colors that go with the vibe of our wedding….flowers, decor, and BMs will be in fall-ish colors, and Future Mother-In-Law & my mom are going to be wearing colors in the fall/earthy family, so either deep rust/plum/olive/brown.

My mom & fmil are wearing complementing colors. Our colors are purples, white, sparkly silver. Fi mom will likely wear a charcoal color. Not sure about my mom yet. But she already told me we need to bring the swatch from my bm dresses to make sure they “Go together & don’t clash”.
