Both sides of the family have done this to me. I told them to wear whatever they want as Im not fussed and some of them ended up trying to match the bridesmaids with the exact same colour (which is a no no for me!!). I think the rule is to wear the same colour but a complimentary shade as the bridesmaids but I just felt that was too much purple and now have to find a metallic shade that will compliment. 

I think they all want to be so involved they want to be told what to wear and i think your family is the same so i would set a colour.

I really don’t think it matters what they wear as long as its not some Fluoresent number that will stand out

Is it like a vibrant red? If so then a real deep dark red would work real well for the mothers

You can see the contrast im talking about in this pic.

In your place I’d tell them to wear anything but red, just so it doesn’t look all matchy matchy.

My mum just said she doesn’t want to wear the same colour as the BMs in case people think she’s trying to be one (honestly, I don’t care what she wears but it’s important to her). I highly doubt she and my Future Mother-In-Law will wear the same colour or style as they are VERY different women in terms of styles and figures.

Just tell her to wear something she feels comfortable in and then think about the colour.
