Do MOB’s have to match the colour scheme??  I didn’t realize they did…

Why is she insane?  I don’t think that’s a big deal.  Blue will look nice with pink and gold.

I wouldn’t worry about the small details… My mom has dictated my wedding and I am just taking it day by day..  Just think, your objective is to marry your man.

My mom is not going to match my colours. She bought her pretty royal blue suit before I even knew what my colours were. I was even the one who picked out the outfit for her. What’s my point? Oh yeah, I don’t think it’s a biggie

Royal blue will coordinate nicely with your colors.  It won’t "match" — but honestly, I think it looks a little weird when everyone in the family is dressed to match the wedding!  In the grand scheme of things, not a big deal at all. 

My maids are wearing teal; my Future Mother-In-Law is wearing a dusty blue dress, and my mom got a burgundy dress.  Nothing will clash, which was my only request!

My colors are also pink and gold, like yours. One mom is wearing a champagne dress, the other is wearing a chocolate brown skirt and top. We started out trying to match but 899 dresses later I was just desperate for her to find *anything* she didn’t hate! At this point I wouldn’t care if she wore a paper bag πŸ™‚

My mom bought a red dress.  RED! and at first I was like- oh no! but then I thought- she really likes it, she looks great, she should feel fab too.  πŸ™‚

I know in my wedding all my moms (3 of them including FMIL) are all planning to match the wedding colors in some way….I would mention it to her. SOme moms would love the option to go buy another dress πŸ™‚ Or maybe the one she has is exchangeable…she might "roayly" stick out in the photos…sorry for the terible pun…I’m over tired!

If this were me, I would. But I’m crazy….sooooo πŸ˜‰

When I was planning my wedding (it’s off now but I’m still addicted to this site!), my colors were peach, pink, and yellow.  His mom insisted on a green dress, even after I let her know I would prefer if she stuck to my colors.  Oh well!  It’s just important that she’s there, right???  Let her wear what she’s happy in and then be happy that she is happy! πŸ™‚

Our colors are pink, green, champagne and black, and my mother’s dress is navy.  My Future Mother-In-Law is also going to get a dress in the "blue" family, so they will match each OTHER, and when people see them, they will get that they are the two moms, but I actually really enjoy that they aren’t matching the color scheme.

I don’t want either mom to match my wedding.  I don’t want them to stand out, but I don’t want them to blend into the wedding party either.  I think all your colors will look great! πŸ™‚

I kinda wanted my mommy to stand out, and she didn’t really want to wear red anyways.  She’s wearing gold.  The colors she considered were gold, champagne, dusty pink or silver.

I just wanted her to find something nice that she liked and didn’t cost a fortune.

I think a deep blue will look really beautiful with your color scheme!
