Hello Fellow Bees!
My weeding is in 73 days!!!! woo!
Little bit of life background, my parents are divorced and my mom has been there for me since day 1! I always lived with my mom, and me and my dad never had the best relationship, although its finally coming around.
I finally made the choice to have both parents to walk me down the aisle, one on each side. Dads wearing the typical black tux/suit and my dress is pictured below. Most MOB usually wear neutral colors, but I feel that would blend to much next to my dress. Bridesmaids are in blue (Marine Blue). Colors are Blue and Purple (royal majestic purple). So the question is…… should my mom stay traditional (not really my first choice anyway), wear bridesmaids color? purple? or some other color? Thoughts, opinions and suggestions welcome!!!!!
Thank you all!

Purple! It will ‘go’ better with your wedding

I say let her wear whatever she will be most comfortable in. Since she will be buying off the rack, it might not be so easy to pick a dress of a certain color. Having said that, my mother wore a dark purple!

I think dark purple would look nice and wouldn’t be distracting with your dress or the BMs.

I think your mother should choose the color in which she looks best that also would complement your wedding colors. She doesn’t have to wear neutral or purple.
Teal, aqua, raspberry, persimmon, kiwi and other vibrant colors also would look fabulous with your marine blue and purple wedding colors.

@Brielle: my mom is totally lost on what color to do, and actually asked me to make this post to see what other people think would be best!

I let my mom war what sh wants. She’s chosen to wear pink (her dress will cost double what mine did) and my bridesmaids are in navy blue. I didn’t care what she chose as long as she looks great!
