What about metallic bronze/gold for your mom. Do you want them wearing the same color?

I think just not the same color as the bridesmaids! I saw one wedding where the MOG’s dress looked almost the same as the BMs (same style, color, everything), and it was kind of awkward.

My mom is wearing a dress that is almost that color except it is a little brighter and my bms are wearing charcoal gray

I was asking, because I was going to suggest that since they want you to be specific to give them two diff colors. I wanted my mom in her own color.

Originally I pictured my mom in a champagne color, but she eventually bought a purple almost the same color as your BM’s.

 What are your colors? I would just pick one of them. I know you’re prob trying not to be picky, but it may be easier just picking yourself since they’re insisting…

I dont think it matters really,  but i thought the mums usually wear something to compliment the bridesmaids dresses. not an exact colour match but a complimenting colour.  like the bridesmaids in dark blue…..mum could wear ANY blue that looks nice with them.

I had this from both my Mother-In-Law and my own mama
I told them absolutely whatever they wanted as long as they were happy and comfortable. After asking me a million times and me telling them the same thing (MIL wanted me to pick the colour of her shoes and handbag too!) they realised it was getting down to the wire and just went with whatever they tried on that they liked. They both looked FABULOUS!

I don’t know how you can stress to them that the colour is totally their choice – I know some people do need a lot of steering. Perhaps you could suggest a colour ‘range’ (i.e. a warm colour, or an earth tone, etc.)

Have either of them tried anything on yet or even looked? I think what they get will depend on what they think looks good on them once they see all the colors available. If you don’t care, it should be pretty easy!

LOL don’t stress too much about it. Ooooh your accent might help dtermine possible colors. What about silve rfor your mom. I just said bronze, because i thought it’d be pretty with that purple. But since silver is an accent…what about that. You tell Future Mother-In-Law light purple.

I knew that I wanted my mom in something bronze or gold-like. She ended up calling me to ask for my help. I picked out a dress, she thought she wouldn’t look good in. I convinced her to try it on…she loved it. It was a gold-hue. She looked great.

My Mother-In-Law kept asking me. As long as she didn’t wear white, black, the same color as my mom, or the wedding party colors I was fine. She ended up in silver.

I told our parents any color, and they ended up in the same exact color. I thought they looked great! My mom isn’t one who would like to stand out, so she was fine with it.
