    I would say champagne,gray or some color of pink. Your colors are so classic really anything would go though!

    I’d say any of the choices you have above would be great, except for navy.  It is too close to black.  I also say let the MOB and MOG decide which of the three choices they would prefer, champaigne, blush or gray.  You’ll want them to take their skin tones into consideration.  Some colors look great on some people while looking terrible on others.

    Let them choose, as long as they aren’t in the exact same color as your maids.

    I would let them choose as well.  They aren’t officially in the wedding and don’t have to match each other as long as their levels of formality match IMO.

    I think a better approach is to let them know the general color scheme of your wedding and let them get whatever they want, but to pass it by you first.

    @mrsbdell:  My Future Mother-In-Law did too, and I kept telling her that she could get what she wants, and two weeks ago, she found something she loves.  Your direction can be that the first person to choose a dress gets that color to herself. That might spur them to action!
