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.
