I found that when I went shopping the colors I had in mind weren’t readily available in the dresses that looked good on me. Just go shopping with an open mind and find something that she looks and feels great in. She won’t be in pics with the wedding party, so as long as she doesn’t clash any color will be fine. PS - I’m also partial to champagne and will be wearing this dress to my youngest daughter’s wedding...
We are going burgundy with gold and the groomsmen are wearing dark gray. My mom chose a slate gray dress, but I told her she could wear whatever she wanted. For us, it was important to keep in mind that my parents most likely won't be in many, if any, pictures with the bridal party so the colors didn't have to match.
I wanted my mom to wear a darker champagne color but she’s super picky about what she wears, so I ended up just showing her our color scheme and telling her to wear whatever she wants as long as it doesn’t clash with the color scheme
My bridesmaids are in burgundy as well and my mom bought a deep purple dress. I was surprised how well the colors worked together. We are pretty laid back and our wedding is in the middle of the forest, so I told my parents they could literally wear whatever they want. It worked out well! Haha.
My bridesmaids are also wearing burgundy. My mom is going to wear a couple shades lighter than the bridesmaids. She also thought about doing a silver or grey color to offset but still look put together and not much different color wise. Good luck!

I think to each their own. I am giving my mom advice on color but did not for my FMIL. My mom wants the help and advice and doesnt even want to but anythig without me there. While i dont find it necessary i am happy to do that with her. And it seems her mom is looking for the help it is not being forced.
Those are the colors the people in our bridal parties are wearing. My mom found a knee length navy dress she is wearing (as of now). With a few months to go she might change her mind, but as of now she will be wearing navy.
