I did the same thing and told my mom to pick amy colour. After way too many hours looking at dresses she opted for a baby blue. I dont think it will look bad. My pallette is gold & green.🤔 My dad is in a black suit, my MOH in emerald green and my FH & BM are in light gray, black lapel tux. 🤞🏽🤞🏽
I asked all the "moms", so my mom, my mil, and my fil's gf, to wear shades of blue but with absolutely no pressure if they wanted to say no. The only person who took issue with the request was my fil's gf
I suggested to my mom and grandmother that they stay with neutrals in order to fit better with the wedding colors, but I also wanted them to find a dress they liked. They both ended up with neutrals anyways.
MY MIL loves purple so I really can't see her in anything else. My bridal party is Reds and Navy blue. As long as she spoils herself and finds something really nice to wear I will be happy. She never dresses up, always in jeans and tshirt. So I told her she needed to dress up, get makeup done and her hair done. I am paying for her hair since I know her. lol I keep sending her nice wedding outfits. Fingers crossed.
We don't really care if they fit, but my mom did stick close-ish to our colors by going with a blush pink dress and our theme is fall colors so browns orange yellow, ect. Im not 100% what MIL will wear but again we weren't picky.
I wanted my mom to feel super comfortable and beautiful in her dress so I was not fussy on the colour she had grey and a dusty rose colour in mind which both looked great on her and she ended up going with a grey - not in my colour palette but still works!
