    Maybe you can share some inspiration photo’s with her so she has a better understanding of what you are trying to do. Some people have a hard time wrapping their head around ‘eclectic” and think it’s going to look insane. Also you could pick a color you know will coordinate and tell her the color to wear. Or give her a few colors to choose from. it sounds like the woman truly is just confused and wants to be able to make some decisions and understand but can’t. For the record, I think it’ll be really cool! I know someone who just did something similar (but the colors were muted like ivory, tan, etc) and it looked really great!

    Kind of reminds me of my step mom, she’s a wonderful woman, but she is more traditional and formal than I am. She had a hard time understanding why my brother and now SIL didn’t have flowers for centerpieces etc at their wedding. We just kind of explained it and she let it go.

    My stepmom was like that for the first few months of our engagement.  It drove me bonkers!  After I started showing her pictures from where I got my ideas she calmed down and is now completely on board!

    Sending her a few pics is a brilliant idea.

    Maybe then she will see that you are not having an 80’s wedding with the girls in  turquoise dresses, the guys wearing turqupsie ties, turquoise petals on the aisle runner, turquoise napkins, little pieces of fruitcake tied with a doily and turquoise ribbon etc etc etc

    Tell her to wear something bright! Or maybe just give her a specific color to wear so that she can feel better about herself, lol.

    I would just give her some guidance on what to wear – such as “bright colors” or “jewel tones” or “neutral earth tones” etc – she just wants something to go buy in picking her dress.

    I think she may be trying to figure out what to wear.

    @Ellegee:  Now I’m curious what they think about your inspiration and if she understands better where you are going with it!

    I would tell her plainly that you aren’t responding to that line of questioning any further.

    We had no wedding colours and it turned out fine. It actually turned out sort of colourless… B&W ahaha.
