When choosing a mother of the bride or mother of the groom dress, one should consider the color. Do you think that it is a good idea for the mother of the groom to wear the same color as the mother of the bride so that they match?
As a rule of thumb, it is a good idea to wear something that coordinates with the wedding colors. However, it is important for the mother of the groom to blend in. Therefore, it is not a good idea for the mother of the groom to match the same color of the mother of the bride. Instead it is a better idea for the mother of the groom to wear a complementary color to the mother of the bride; but not the same color.
In addition, a mother of the groom must think about how the wedding photos will look. Does the mother of the groom want to stand out? – hopefully not…
It is a good idea if everyone wears colors within the same hues or colors that are considered complementary. For example, it is not a good choice for a mother of the groom to wear a dark color dress to the wedding if the wedding colors are light or if the mother of the bride is wearing a light colored dress.
Also, if the wedding colors contain deep fall shades, it is best not for the mother of the groom to blend in rather than dress is a pastel color.
When thinking about dressing a mother of the bride or mother of the groom, it is important to keep one word in mind – blend. If a mother of the groom does not coordinate with the wedding colors, then it will be the first thing that everyone notices in the wedding pictures and it would probably get the mother of the groom off to a bad start with her son’s new wife.
