What about wearing a champagne color; either you or your daughter? Personally, I would not go with the red for a 13 year old. I would go with a pastel of some kind for her; maybe another color of blue. I suggest getting a color swatch that matches his uniform color and then go to a fabric store and hold the colors next to each other. And take some pictures of them together, so you can reveiw them when you get home. I have done this. I just asked the store manager, if it was okay. I have several swatches in my purse that I carry everywhere.

I personally don’t favor the r/w/b theme for a wedding; although I don’t feel a 13 year old should be in red for the wedding either.

If he wears his whites, I don’t see why you can’t wear white yourself.  You could have a lovely dark blue sash w/blue shoes and your daughter could be in dark blue with a white sash.

Or you could wear a lovely white suit with a blue silk blouse.  Or a dark blue suit with a white blouse.

Depending on his white, it may make your white look off color, so I agree,,,you need to hold up the colors side by side before you make a final decision.
