    Nope.  She really didn’t want to. But you saw my photo of my sister (a BM) with my mom. I think it worked out okay!

    My sister who is my Maid/Matron of Honor decided she wanted to wear the same dress and color as the Bridesmaid or Best Man because it looks nicer. She will be wearing a sash and her bouquet will be slightly different from the Bridesmaid or Best Man just so she can stand out a little more but I think it looks pretty nice.

    My colors are Navy and Peach and my step mom is wearing black which is obviously a neutral.  My FI’s mom hasn’t picked a dress yet.  She was going to wear and orange-peachy one, but my Fiance didn’t like it and talked her out of it.

    Yes, my Mom matched the wedding colors, but not because I asked her too. In fact, the color she chose was my MOH’s first choice. But once my Mom purchased her dress, Maid/Matron of Honor decided that she didn’t want to wear the same color and my Mom, so she chose another color to wear. I really didn’t care what color anyone wore. My directions were “Choose an outfit that makes you feel fabulous!”

    My mom will match the Jr. Bridesmaid who is in full “tealness” as well; the bridesmaid/MOH dress is black with “tealness” accents, so my mom won’t be overly matchy-matchy with theirs.  She insisted on wearing a wedding color…and black and white weren’t options.

    My mom decided to match my dad.

    Our wedding colors were purple and yellow. Fiance is wearing a purple vest and the Groomsmen are wearing yelllow vest. Both fathers decided they didnt like either color and choose silver. So my mom decided to go with a grey/silver dress to match my dad but it still cordinates witht he wedding colors. Fiance adopted mom choose a blue grey color dress which is perfectly fine with me!

    Not at all.  But the dress she chose is nice so I guess that is fine.

    Nope, but she coordinated well.  My Bridesmaid or Best Man color was “watermelon” and she wore “clover” from David’s Bridal.  Looked great.

    I’m doing Guava and White, all my bridesmaids are in a guava dress and guava shoes. The Maid/Matron of Honor is in the same guava dress, but we are adding a white sash to her dress and she will have the same shoes but in white.

    My MOB is wearing a color that coordinates with the other colors in my scheme but I’m not using it anywhere else. I kind of want to pick out the MOG’s dress so that it coordinates equally as well, but I don’t think that’s going to happen.
