    I specifically told my Future Mother-In-Law that she shouldn’t get purple.  I told her jewel tones, but no purple/spiced wine.  I flat-out told her I didn’t want her to look like she was matching the BMs.  Naturally she tells me later taht she found an “off-white dress that looks fantastic on her”.  Had to nip that one in the bud, too.  This happened a while back, so I wasn’t so much in bridal mode that I felt I should just let it go.  I fought that battle haha

    My mother is trying to choose a dress which is a different colour from my Bridesmaid or Best Man but doesn’t clash. I’ve said I don’t mind as long as she finds something nice that she likes and feels comfortable in, although she’s continuing to show me her ideas to get a second opinion before she buys anything.

    As far as I’m aware, the only big no-nos are wearing white, black, or her own wedding dress lol.

    I told my mom and Future Mother-In-Law to wear what they want. Honestly, they are going to be in only a few photos when the BMs are, so it really should be too big of an issue if you think about it.

    I agree with Shaerena, as long as she doesn’t wear white or her own wedding dress 🙂

    I personally wouldn’t care- just not white, as stated above!

    In a perfect world the MOG would not clash with the wedding colors or be the exact same color as the bms, but if your Mother-In-Law is like my Mother-In-Law she will do what she wants and that’s that. In the end, our joint family photo looks wonderful….with her sticking out like a sore thumb.

    It definately doesn’t matter. Glad you’re not worrying about it, it’s likely no one will even notice or care!

    I had my bridesmaids in whatever navy blue dresses they wanted. When I went shopping with my moms I told them no navy…I did not say that to MOG (figured it was a given) and guess what color she ended up in?

    Honestly it was not that big of a deal. She looked nice, liked her dress and nobody thought she was a bridesmaid.

    I wouldn’t have a problem with anyone wearing white, near-white, or any of the wedding colors. I don’t care what guests and family wear. Our colors are brown, green, and ivory. His mom is planning on wearing a brown skirt and ivory top. My mom is planning on a jewel tone of some sort. She said she’d wanted green. My response was “Cool! That’s one of the wedding colors!” She was going to avoid it, but I told ehr I just want her in something she feels beautiful wearing.

    If that’s green, brown, white, ivory, blush pink, black… I don’t care either way.
