Grandmother outfits?

Holly, on August 10, 2016 at 9:21 AM Posted in Wedding Attire 0 8

Hi all! Last night my grandmother started asking me what colors she should wear to the wedding. I've heard of MOB coordinating with the bridal party but wasn't sure about grandmothers. I personally told her wear whatever she wants as it would be an honor just to have her there (I wasn't sure if she'd be able to make it because my grandfather is very ill and she can't often leave him). But it just made me curious if we should be coordinating between her and my other grandmother? For that matter, what does the MOG typically wear?

My wedding will be on the slightly more casual/nontraditional side of the spectrum already, just curious what other people are doing.

    No one has to coordinate colors other than the bridal party. Just help her find something she feels comfortable and fabulous in! Smiley smile

    What BeachDreams said. No one has to coordinate with the wedding party. They should wear something they feel amazing in.

    I've never heard of mothers, grandmothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, animals needing to coordinate with the wedding party. When was this a thing? I'm just letting people wear whatever color/style they want. Whatever they feel comfortable in is all that matters to me.

    If she insists just tell her your wedding colors. That way she can find something that compliments your colors. Otherwise just tell her to just wear whatever she likes because she'll be Fab in whatever she wears. That's what I told my family because they kept asking the same question.

    I had never heard of coordinating the MOB with the bridal party before someone mentioned it on WW. In my circle, the mothers wear whatever they want and usually the MOB picks her color first and the MOG picks any other color. The grandmothers haven't even been a concern. They just wear anything they are comfortable in!

    This is what my grandmother is wearing. Got it for a steal at JcPenny. She's walking mine and FH's son (ring bearer) down the aisle and he'll be in a tux so we liked the dress because it'll go with his tux

    If you don't live too far from each other make it a day out together... Go dress shopping then go for lunch. She can get something that she likes, feels beautiful in, and comfortable and she'll get to spend quality time with you.

    Everyone is different, some people want everyone to look coordinated, some people don't care.

    I like people to look pretty and feel comfortable.

    We're making it a fun family outing for my mom, my aunt, my FMIL and his grandma. (Luckily we get along well like that)

    I've never really heard of grandmothers and MOG coordinating colors before joining ww. I know my Mom told that she'll find something that complements my sisters' dresses (they're bridesmaids). If its important to her to wear the "right" color I'd let her know your wedding colors but I'd alsoet her know that she doesn't have to wear those if she doesn't want to. I think for some mothers/grandmothers its just important to be apart of this with you and that it manifests in things like wanting to know what colors to wear.
