Purple. That is a tough one, though, because I prefer the officiant in neutral (like black or khaki or gray) so the focus stays on the couple moreso. But the mother of the bride should be festive! But if she were in gold standing up there with you during the ceremony, I’d probably be slightly distracted like “ooo shiny!” So I go with purple. It matches your colors, it’s pretty, and it would be the least distracting of those options. Gray would be a good runner up, but it is less MoB to me. Dark blue would also work, but I don’t think it would match your wedding colors as well. Silver, gold, and ivory/white would not be options to me.

No to the gold one. It’s definitely “ooo shiny” to me haha. But that might just be me.

I think the second one could work. It might be a good balance between festive and neutral, if you’re ok with her being next to you in ivory! I think the jacket helps make it seem a little business like/neutral, but the edging keeps it festive. That one could be a possibility.

That is lovely! I could see either the purple or ivory working.

I think purple would look really loveley.  I’m remembering something from Mrs. Cherry Pie’s posts?
