So, my Future Mother-In-Law has been asking me what color I want her to wear to our wedding. I was surprised she asked (who cares?) but she wants a color range so she can find a dress.
Anyway, the constraints are, FOG hates black (so sad, because I love it), so that’s out, and MOG is not fond of grey, which is fine because the bridesmaids are wearing grey. I suggested dark brown, but Future Mother-In-Law is not crazy about that, either.
So, here are my wedding colors:
The bridesmaids will be wearing the lighter grey, groomsmen in the darker (which is supposed to be charcoal. Accents will be in the tawny type color and champagne.
My only preference is that the colors be in the darker range… It’s a winterish wedding, and I like the idea of the bride being the only person “wearing white/reading light”.
What do you think, bees? What colors would look nice with this palate?

Oh god I have no idea. Does it have to go with everything? I told Future Mother-In-Law I don’t care but that I’d tell her what the BMs and my mother was wearing if she wants to make sure it’s different. But I don’t care.
Since you said it’s a winder wedding, maybe a dark green or a deep, not bright, red? I know those don’t match really.
I guess a dark blue would work too.

@Bubbles42: No, it doesn’t have to go with absolutely everything. It’s hard, right?! I told her to use her discretion but she is not happy with not having any direction on it. So I figure if I give her a handful of colors, she’ll be okay.
Navy blue is definitely an option. I almost but the BM’s in it. But Mother-In-Law wore almost navy to her daughter’s wedding, so I don’t know if she will want to. I need more choices! lol.

Tell her something like “a dark jewel tone” “Or dark autumn colors”

Normally I respond to these posts with “whatever she wants” because I think grown women should dress themselves however they see fit. Since she’s so insistent you tell her what to wear, how about a jewel tone? Really, any dark color would be fine. I would not do brown though…I think that clashes with gray.

agree, don’t choose brown. Plum is a good color to complement your grays.

What about navy or a deep plum or wine color?

@Ashley_P: Those are some great ideas.
Thanks, guys. I’m thinking navy or plum would be good choices. Hopefully she’ll go for those.
