Hi everyone! I need inspiration. My MOG is looking for her dress. Originally she was going to wear navy as my maids are wearing dusty blue, but i decided my MOH will be wearing navy and now I have no idea what color mother in law to be should wear. She has pale skin and blonde hair.
Typically the couple doesn’t dictate what the MOB & MOG wear. It’s just whatever color/style they feel comfortable in. If the mothers are wanting to coordinate with your color scheme somehow, I would just choose a complementing color. You can Google or search on Pinterest for “dusty blue wedding color palette” and see which complementing colors they like best.
She has asked for my help in picking, and I don't want her to match the bridal party at all just needed color ideas that compliment the ones i have. I did tell her she could pick what she feels comfortable in as long as it isn't the same colors.
That is very kind of you to worry about what colors will look good with her hair and skin tone. Navy blue is a perfect color for this hair/skin combo! Just because your MOH is wearing navy does not mean the MOG can’t wear that color either! She won’t be walking down the aisle with your BMs or standing at the altar next to them. And very few (if any) photos are usually taken with the mothers and the BMs. I would just let her wear navy!

Agree ! No real reason for her to avoid navy. It’s a common color so certainly some other guests are likely to be in it as well. The MOH will still stand out amongst the bridal party, and every guest will know who she is.
