The moms don’t have to match the wedding party- just wear something that doesn’t clash , so they will look good together in pictures.

Both my Mom and my grandma tried on that actuall dress, and it was really flattering on both of them.  I think the important part is that she looks and feels beautiful, and if she does, then does it really matter if the colors aren’t perfect? 

 

My mom is wearing a purple dress, and my wedding colors are teal and coral… But the dress looked really great on her, and she’s happy with it. 

 

But, if you insist on the color matching, a very similar dress comes in a blushy-pink color

That’s a pretty dress! I think it’ll look fine, especially since the suits are grey! My grandmother(almost like a mom to us) will be wearing grey and aqua to my brother’s wedding and they’ll be wearing grey suits too.

She’ll probably be wearing this to my wedding.

When my mom and future mother in law asked what i wanted them to wear or what color, etc I told them they could wear whatever they wanted. I just wanted them to feel beautiful! I’m having kind of a vintage chic wedding and my dress is lace, the bridesmaids dresses are cream and this is my mom’s dress but she got it in a kind of mauvish color called ‘peony’…

I really didn’t want our moms to match or anything. So maybe think about that. They wore darker colors cuz it was November and looked great.

@Happy7:  My brothers wedding was almost the other way round the mothers wore pink/purple and coral and the bridesmaid dresses were greeny blue. It looked great!

@September29Runner:  She found it at a local bridal store – The brand/style is Jade K2283 – They had it in black in her size (she almost didn’t try it on because it wasn’t exactly what she had in mind) but when she tried it on we both knew immediately! It looked amazing and very flattering so she special ordered it in the Peony color she liked
