Colors for Mother of Bride and Mother of Groom

Sandi, on March 17, 2023 at 1:11 AM Posted in Wedding Attire 1 9
My daughter is getting married in September. The bridesmaids are wearing black and carrying solid white flowers with no additional color and groomsmen-are wearing blackout with white shirt and black bow tie. Would it look bad if mother of bride wore pink, or should I stick with silver/ gray?

    Did you ask her? I don't think pink would look bad unless it was a bright hot pink color.


    When first planning my wedding I thought I wanted family to be "matching" with my bridal party, however now as it gets closer I realized I don't care what color parents wear as long as it's not a wedding dress 馃槀

    I鈥檇 wear whatever looks best on you. Mothers can wear anything they like other than white or very bright colors unless specifically requested by the bride. They are not one of the bridesmaids and don鈥檛 have to coordinate with the wedding party or each other unless they want to.

    I would wear what you are most comfortable in whether that's pink or silver/gray. You don't have to watch the bridal party.

    Just to clarify, colors are obviously fine. When I say very bright, I mean truly over the top flashy like a bright red.

    I think you can wear whatever you want! We didn鈥檛 give any rules to our moms and they ended up matching! 馃槀

    Yes bride and groom don鈥檛 care, I just don鈥檛 want to stand out in pics! And if I wear pink what color should groom mother wear for us to all blend in on pictures.

    Again, she wears whatever she wants to wear. You and the bride have no discretion over her choice. There are colors I wouldn鈥檛 pick but I misspoke before in saying the bride can request that moms wear a specific color that is normally not worn, like white, for example. That only applies to the bridal party.

    I had one single picture taken that included both sets of parents, so ultimately the MOB and MOG dresses coordinating mattered about 0%. And because my husband and i were going to be in neutral colors the colors of their dresses wouldn't clash in that one photo. My mother in law wore a black and white chevron patterned gown. My mother wore a black gown, my step mother wore a lavender colored floral dress.

    I think you should wear whatever dress/color you feel most comfortable in! There are no rules about MOB or MOG attire, and most people do not have them match/coordinate with eachother or the wedding party. And don鈥檛 worry about 鈥渟ticking out鈥 in pictures- having pops of color in the photos will make them more interesting!
