Should the mother and sister of the groom wear the same color dresses as the bride’s attendants?
Traditionally, the mother-of-the-bride sets the dress code for the ‘mothers’ (mother-of-the groom, grandmothers, aunts, godmothers, and other family members). You would take her lead in terms of style, length, and color hue, but find a dress that flatters your shape. Usually, the MOG wears beige or blue. They do not wear the same color as the attendants, because the bridesmaids should be identified on their own. Think of the wedding photos, you and your daughter don’t want to be mistaken for a bridesmaid. Wear a color that goes with and doesn’t clash with the wedding colors. The attendants are usually dressed in one of the wedding colors. The wedding couple choose two wedding colors and you and your daughter would not wear either of those colors. Find out the wedding colors. Google ‘pantone fashion color 2015’ and click on Women’s and you’ll find colors that pair well. For instance there are four wonderful blues: scuba blue, dusk blue, classic blue and aquamarine. The MOG and sister could each pick one of these shades of blue.
