I think I would suck it up than risk creating conflict.

I think you should let them know what your mother is wearing and suggest that they look at complementary colors that are not blue.  My mom was very adamant that she wanted to pick out her dress first so she got the color she wanted, and I definitely didn’t want to mess with that!  

What are some of your other wedding colors?  I totally get that you don’t want even the moms to look too matchy-matchy in photos, and I don’t think it’s unreasonable to suggest another color for your fi’s moms.

It will not look weird.  My Darling Husband also has 2 moms and both of them and my mom all wore chocolate brown and it didn’t look weird at all!

Actually, I think it could be really nice!  Someone just may have to coordinate the photo composition (ie where people stand) so the shades of blue don’t clash. 

My bridesmaids are wearing navy blue chiffon.  My mother set out to get her dress…and fell head-over-heels in love with a shiny navy blue satin dress with silver beadwork all over the top.  She was concerned that I might disapprove and tell her not to get it.  But how could I say no?  Besides, she has been helping wayyyy more than some of my BMs, and she is kind of one of the girls…I hope the dresses don’t look too similar.

I don’t know if I agree with some of you…I want my mom to feel special on my wedding day, and I want her to stand out and be her own person, wearing her own color and a dress she loves.  She isn’t a bridesmaid and deserves feel and look special!

I’m sure the moms will feel special and stand out no matter what they wear. It’s not like they’re wearing the exact same dress. All the dads might wear black tuxes or suits and I bet noone would think that looks weird. Unless your mom has an issue with it, I don’t think it would be a problem for the photos. And since you chose blue for your BM’s apparantly you like the color, so at least the photos won’t be filled with a matching hideous color 🙂

I think it will be fine as long as your mother is okay with it.

I have color coordinated my wedding like this:

MOB/MOG: silver or grey

Grandparents: pool blue

Aunts and Uncles: Black

 

They are all okay with it. Since we have dated for so long and already seem like family we figured we would make everyone blend and match like one big happy family.
