I’m very close with my mom and decided I wanted her to walk me down the aisle. I am having a summer indoor wedding in July. My colors are green and Malibu (David’s bridal color) its almost like a turquoise. We just recently started looking for her dress, what we can’t figure out is what color she should wear. I thought maybe black cause my dress is white but she thinks then it looks like she is mourning lol
Do you think she should just wear any color? Or black or the Malibu color which is what my bridesmaids are wearing. Any advice would help, thanks so much everyone 🙂

What about silver (if it’s your accent color). She is still the MOB, so they ususally don’t wear a Bridesmaid or Best Man color. That is just my suggestion, so that she can stand on her own.

@amh2713: My instincts are that if you don’t have any desire to keep her in your color palette, leaving color open would really help your dress shopping process! Finding a dress from a MOB is not an easy task and if you allow her to look for shape/cuts that she wants to wear, maybe you can go from there on color! I definitely think it would be nice to put her in a color (IE not black), it’d be nice for her to stand out!

I too thought of silver or charchol gray. I agree with mom about the black!

I think she should wear what she wants to wear. I don’t think there’s any need to coordinate, to be honest.
My mom is also walking me down the aisle. She found a dress she loved. It’s not in my colour scheme, but I never expected it to be.
It’s going to look awesome because she’ll be happy and comfortable in what she chose.

I would say silver or the grey. No to black and I wouldnt have her matching with the bridesmaids.

If you want to stick to the same color pallette, I would say a lighter, more subdued version of your colors. If that doesn’t matter, I would say a gray or silver.

No need to coordinate unless your wedding is very matchy matchy. I am probably not having the dads wear ties that go with the groomsdudes so my mom will probably wear whatever makes her happy.
