Our wedding colors were originally pink, french blue, and white. Well it’s turning out to be more blue, gray, and white…
My mom is now starting to think about what she will wear. We don’t have attendants, like usual, but our daughter is the flower girl and is wearing white, My dress is white, my sons will be most likely wearing gray and blue (dark gray)… Fiance is wearing black and white.
Does it really matter if my mom wears blue, with regard to the pictures? She doesn’t look good in it and doesn’t like it. She prefers / looks best in purple, olive green, beige, tan, etc.
Just curious as to what others think.

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! 🙂

@brideatbeach: Yeah, tan might be better. Or a coffee color. My mom is kind of fashion clueless… I joke that if I don’t give her “direction” she’ll show up in leopard print outrageousness! But I don’t want something that makes her look old, either.

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 🙂

@iheartnerds: that’s a gorgeous dress and at a great price! Heck, I want one, forget mom! LOL!
Really though, very pretty, lots of color choices too.
I can see my mom in that… she is very adamant about choosing the cut and won’t start looking yet (“too much to do” and she hates to shop.. total opposite of me!) and won’t really let me look FOR her. Frustrating! I guess I will just let it be and hope for the best!

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.
