My mom and maids will likely be the same color. Doesnt bother me at all. I figure she’s part of the bride’s side why not?

Personally, I think your mom should wear whatever she is comfortable with!

I think it looks better to have the mothers of the bride and groom in the same color as the wedding party. It makes the photos look more cohesive.  I know for our wedding my father and future father in law are wearing the same tuxes as the groomsmen so why not have the mothers fit in and match too!

They used to say that this was something to avoid but now people do it ALL the time.  I would just make sure the mother of the groom also wears navy then so she doesn’t stick out more (since if you go by tradition the MOB should be the second best dressed in the room).  I think it looks great and cohesive.  I considered it since both moms LOVED the color of my bridesmaid dresses, however the MOG was too traditional to go for it, and my mom was worried she would be mistaken for an old bridesmaid… haha..

My mom and my maids are all in navy, and I really like it, actually. I’m trying to get FMIL to wear navy too, hahah.

Shannn099:  Why not? My mom basically wore the same color the first time I got married. Two different types of dresses.

Beautiful.  I don’t think there’s an issue and the dress your mom is wearing ~ so pretty!

Hi!

I am looking at this same Alfred Angelo dress for my bridemaids. Do you know what the name of the color you have on is? Is it Ink?

Thanks!
