Look for colors that compliment the colors of your wedding but dont clash with them. Or you could do colors in the same hue but different shade. So maybe you could have the mother/SO/grandmother wear some sort of blue that is not aqua. We had brown bridesmaids dresses and our wedding colors we green, yellow and brown. My mom wore a “robins egg” blue and my Mother-In-Law wore a multi colored dress that had some green and yellow in it. Both of our mothers looked great!

I say, let them wear whatever colors they want (besides aqua – they aren’t BMs).  My BMs wore red, my mom wore soft yellow, DH’s mom wore purple, I think my G-ma was in a teal color – and they all looked great!  My dad and DH’s dad wore tuxes with vest/ties that looked nice with whatever each of their wives were wearing.

Yeah, I agree with @FutureKMM.  I’m having the same type of wedding (congratulations by the way)  🙂  Beach wedding, bridesmaids in pastel green, maid of honor/ringbearer AKA 13 yr old girl lol in aqua blue.

I wanted the parents of each side (some married, some not – with new people, same situation as yours) to wear a certain color to stand out.  The men (fathers, etc) are easy … because they can match the groomsmen and wear a different type of tie, undershirt, hankerchief, boutiniere, etc (depending on what you have) to help have them stand out. 

The woman, on the other hand, i wanted to wear the same color dress (not style, just color).  I didn’t want them to match the wedding party, but atleast in the same color (like champagne). I heard complaints from both side.  Then I did research and found out that they really don’t have to … because there are numerous of ways throughout the entire wedding that they will be recognized for who they are.  ALL the important people in your life that you want to shine with you.  So, they can pick their own color … as long as its not a crazy color (that REALLY doesn’t match) like black or red. 

If you feel the need to put them in the same color – then have all the close women in your life wear a champagne color (matches the beach theme, but not the wedding party so they are not confused with friends) and a garauntee that no one else will really wear champagne to the wedding (very rare anyway).  I hope that helps and good luck!!!
