Whatever they want!  Mothers of the bride and groom are not members of the wedding party.

Short of a loud, Hawaiian print, the mothers should wear what they want. Colors don’t matter!

ashley.krause.923:  Unless they are asking you for guidance, I would asume they can dress themselves.

If they are asking you for your opinion, I would suggest dusky blue, pewter, champagne, silver, dusty rose etc.

Let her pick her own dress!<br /><br />Our wedding colors were coral (2 different shades) and white, my mom wore a beautiful blue and my mother in law wore a printed purple dress- they looked wonderful!

My mom and FMIL picked a dress they were comfortable in. Only colour I didn’t want them to pick was what the maids are wearing (dark red). My mom choose a navy dress and FMIL is going to wear a dark purple dress. It was hard enough for both of them to pick a dress let alone a specific colour

MY mom probably bought and tried on more dresses than I did, ha. But, she’ll be wearing a knee-length sleeveles navy dress. The BM dresses are AA Meditteranean Blue, so not navy or cobalt – in between. She had looked at navy and beige color dresses.

The MOG is wearing a black dress.

I said they could wear whatever they want!
