Do you have pics of the dress to post?

I would leave it be.  I don’t personally consider the MOB to be part of the “bridal party,” so I don’t think she needs to match.  As long as she has a nice dress that she feels pretty in, call it good.

I think MOBs and MOGs are not props in our wedding day productions, and are fully capable of determining what colours and styles flatter then, and they feel comfortable.  If one can raise a child to adulthood, one is probably more than capable of dressing themselves.

I am vehemently opposed to micromanaging the clothing choices of anyone other than  the bridal party.

The vast majority of photos with your mother in them will not have your bridal party in them anyway (unless your Bridal Party is comrised completely of sisters, which is possible).

It’s fine.  She’s not taking THAT many photos with the bridesmaids. It’s not an issue. Let it go. You’re micro-managing.

@Adhtarheel:  I think it will be great. A darker purple and a lighter green are actually VERY complimentary colors! I actually LOVE that combination and that is the combination for my wedding 🙂 so maybe I’m partial.

@Adhtarheel:  I think it looks nice and it doesn’t necessarily have to match the bridal party’s attire or wedding colors. One less thing for you to have to do and trust me, there’ll be plenty of other things to do, lol.

She’ll be the green leaf to your purple flowers. It’ll look great.

@Adhtarheel:  Thank you! Yes, I live in the Charlotte area. We’re getting married in Indianapolis though, it’s where FI’s family is. Do you know where you’re getting married at yet?

I think your mothers dress is lovely.. the color is gorgeous! I would let her wear it and not say a thing.. She feels good in it that’s all that matters! My colors are lavendar with small touches of light green and my mom is wearing a dark blue and mil is wearing taupe .. Doesn’t necessarily match but who cares, they’ll look beautiful !
