Well my first thought is to have them stay away from red, because when I see red, white, and blue I think of the 4th of July.  That being said, I think there are plenty of colors that could compliment different shades of blue – purples, pinks, maybe a sage green?  I think you have more options than you realize!

It’s actually kind of tough to find good MOB and Future Mother-In-Law dresses. To make it easier on the moms, you may want to tell them colors you definitely don’t want them in, and then ask them to clear their dress choices with you to make sure you like the color. Like Tulip said, I think lots of colors will look nice with blue (I think golds and taupes would look great), especially if the moms choose dresses they like and feel good in. Good luck!

I think silver or gray looks awesome with blue!  I also agree that taupe may be good color as well.

My mom wore a really nice black and white gown, and my Mother-In-Law wore a really pretty champagne color gown. Just try to pick neutral colors, and they’ll go with everything 🙂

Ugh, that’s tough. Are your bridesmaids and your mom all going to be in long dresses? If so, you could point out that everyone else will be in long gowns and she may want to consider that as well so that she doesn’t feel out of place. Or just be blunt and say that you’d like everyone to be in longer dresses. I definitely think you can have your Fiance talk to her about it – not cheating at all! Ultimately, what she wears is her choice, but I think if you (or your FI) delicately let her know that you prefer that she wear a longer dress in a color other than red or blue, she’ll most likely follow your wishes.
