Need your opinions. My colors are deep purple (called grape). 4 Bridesmaids wearing this color. A Jr. Bridesmaids and Groomsman wearing Silver. So Purple and Silver are my colors. My idea was to put my Mother, who is walking me down the aisle, in a deep pewter/greyish dress. Then my FIs mother in a light purple dress. This would pull in my colors plus look really nice in pictures I thought.
Is this a good idea to have the 2 Mom’s wear similar colors as the wedding party to tie it all in, just in different shades? I like the idea but not sure if this seems “weird” and they should wear different shades altogether. THoughts?

@alicat2: Have you asked them about the colors that suit them best?
I think it would look nice, but it depends on what color palettes tend to look best on them.

I think it is perfectly fine!
I have usually seen Moms in complementary dresses. They don’t clash, but they stand out. My mom is wearing a black and gold dress, and Future Mother-In-Law is probably wearing a black and silver dress. My colors are pink, sea green, and purple.

I wouldn’t overthink this. If they find dresses in pewter/light purple that they like great! I don’t think its weird to have them coordinate with the bridal party. On the other hand I think I have a handful of formals with my mom and the bridesmaids in the same shot and I prob won’t want them in an album so its not like one mom wearing navy or green is going to clash.

My colors are royal purple and dark gray. My bridesmaids are wearing gray, and both mothers will be in purple. The MOG will be in a very deep shade of purple, and my mom is in a much lighter shade that kind of turns green in certain lighting. I think having them wear purple is brilliant. 😀

If they agree with the color choice, I don’t see why not.
