Navy is actually the most common MOG dress color! I understand though, as my bridesmaids were also in navy! I would say that other shades of blue would be perfectly acceptable. You could also look into shades of grey or purple as well! My mother wore black and red (not my choice!!) and my Mother-In-Law wore a dark purple dress that was lovely.

Mine is wearing purple!

But I’m not picky! I told her to pick whatever. When she asked me to pick  a color for her, I said “You’ve been dressing yourself for 50-something years. I’m sure you can do it on our wedding day!”

i wish it was that easy for me, our colors are black,burgundy, silver – his mother wants to wear something short short short like something i would feel would be at a night club shes 50some years old and dresses like a teenager hitting puberty for the first time! UGH im about to rip my hair out


– maybe the MOG could wear a pale blue? or even crayola blue? that ways its still in the color pallet but not exactly your colors. i like the idea of pale so “both mothers” are wearing coordination colors of your wedding just pale??? option?

There’s a thing on the David’s Bridal website I looked at for mine.  You select your wedding colors and it shows you what colors work with it.  The MOB and MOG don’t have to match the wedding party.

My colors are teal, black and white…my mom is going to wear a silver dress.  I plan to go shopping with Future Mother-In-Law and pick out something in a light shade of blue or green.

@FutureMrsMK:  why no navy? I’d rather mine match my colors

Ugh my mom wanted to wear the same color as my BMs, she wanted to look like one of them. My colors were taupe, beige, and mustard yellow – my bridesmaids wore taupe, my mom and mother-in-law both wore beige.
