I think you would be fine. Our bridesmaids are wearing dark periwinkle, but our mothers are wearing deep purple and navy, respectively.

Be careful with beige and tan, though; you don’t want anything remotely similar to white! 🙂

I think the mothers look best in something that compliments the color scheme without being matchy-matchy. For example, my wedding colors were truffle brown and light greens with white and silver accents and the mom’s wore blue (not a color in the color theme but a color that looked really good with it).

For my fall wedding, my colors are dark purple and burnt orange. My mother is most likely wearing this dress in rich plum, which is really a deep red/burgundy. I think she’s going to look fabulous! Currently no idea what my fiance’s mom plans to wear.

AS long as she doesn’t contrast (and those colors sound nice together) then its no big deal. My colors are cornflower blue and ivory and my mom isn’t wearing either 🙂

I think what some of the other ladies have said is right; as long as it’s not a clashing colour, it’s fine.  Our colours were green/gray/white.  My mom wore blue, his mom wore plum, and his step-mom wore black.  All the pictures looked great.  At my sister’s wedding her colours were bright blue and yellow, and my mom wore bright red.  It still looked great in the pictures.
