I need your help with colors! My bridesmaids are wearing different shades of green knee length chiffon dresses, which they are picking out themselves with shin or knee high brown or tan boots. My venue is mostly outdoors, my flowers are going to be white, cream, and green in clear and aqua mason chairs, with burlap around the bouquets, in the fall. I thought picking colors for bm’s was challenging enough, now my mother and mil’s are on my case about their outfits.
My fiance’s mother and step mother HATE each other, so I will not be able to take all three dress shopping together, and they are not going to want to wear the same outfit. What on earth should the three mom’s wear? I know they shouldn’t all wear the same dress and they are supposed to “coordinate” but what does that mean?
Should they each wear the same color, or the same length or both? Or should all three wear different colors?
My fiance’s stepmom wants to wear the same color as the bridemaids, but I don’t think that will look good.
Colors that I think might match include, navy blue, jade/ turquoise, grey, tan/ camel or brown.
My fiance wants to wear a charcoal grey suit.
I haven’t picked out suit colors for the other guys yet, but they are most likely going to wear light grey or tan.
I am just worried there are too many colors, when what I really want is a very neutral and simple shabby chic or rustic chic color scheme.
Please help! Suggestions with pictures or links are greatly appreciated.
