I am asking mine to wear coordinating colors. It doesn’t have to be in our wedding colors but it has to go with it.

The father of the bride usually wears a tux (or similar to whatever the guys are wearing). My siblings were part of the wedding party, and my mom wore a long dress in a neutral color.

Well, my sisters and Future Sister-In-Law are BMs, so they will match, my dad is walking me down the aisle, so he will be in a tux, and my mom will probably wear a darker color than my BMs.  FI’s mom will probably wear a neutral color and his dad, will probably wear a simple suit.

Men wore tuxes, women, if not in the wedding, wore whatever they wanted.

You could give them all bouts/corsages etc so people know they are immediate family.

They wear whatever they want??  With the exception of SMIL, everyone wore something with black in it or something toned down since our colors were simple – black and white.

I’ll probably let them wear what they want. For the most part, they aren’t in too many pictures. We will of course do the obligatory family pics but mostly I want to focus on wedding party and bride/groom.

They choose their own outfit. If you asked them to wear something and they didn’t want to, I would just let it go.

Well the men generally wear tuxs so that uniforms them a bit. For the women- just proper formal wear for the venue and season. As long as they are wearing something appropriate for the event they will look fine in the pictures.

I think they should wear what they want, but it would be totally fine to give them a color pallette. I’m taking the easy route and having my siblings in the bridal party
