I don’t think anyone is going to think as hard about it as you are.

It may be neat to have a little contrast. If your mom goes with navy, maybe your Future Mother-In-Law can wear the purple? Do you have a “neutral” that you’re using with your colors? Like, silver, gold, tan?

Honestly, no one is going to confuse your mom for a bridesmaid or an attendant. And even if she is wearing the color that the groom’s attendants are wearing… so what?

I like the taupe. Navy is too matchy matchy. The MOG can wear whatever she wants. 

p.s. if you stop trying to control everything, there will be less decisions. And everybody will be happier.

Let the mothers wear what they want. I surprised my daughter with my dress choice and color; everyone said it was an exquisite evening gown.

Tachetetreasures:  The mothers don’t really have to match the wedding party. It is nice if they cooordinate, or at least don’t clash.

That dress does come in other colors on other sites if your Mom wants to check them out. Search R & M Richards. They are carried by Macy’s, J C Penney, Dillards, Overstock, Amazon. It’s also on Zulily. Check out the other sites in Mom would like to save money, as prices range from $60 and up.

Have you seen the taupe in person? It looks to have a greyish undertone which would work well, if it is a flattering color for your Mom. It also comes in teal, which to me looks more like turquoise.

I would let her wear whatever color she wants.  i think navy would be fine, and it would be fine if the Future Mother-In-Law wore navy too. My colors are navy and white and my mom is wearing turquoise. My Future Mother-In-Law is looking at wearing a white dress with fuscia flowers. I think as long as everyone is dressed up it will look fine. I have no idea what my step mother and step future mother in law are wearing lol
