The bridesmaids are wearing a dusty blue/slate blue color, the groomsman have dark grey with the same blue color tie. We are getting married in a garden so there is a lot of greenery as well. I am unsure of what color to have the mothers wear. Like some type of neutral or navy? Any opinions would be helpful.

When these etiquette gurus (Miss Manners, Emily Post Institute, etc.) change their default style, so will I. So far, this hasn't happened. Remember, there are many people who do prefer the traditional address style. You have no right to dictate to them, or to denegrate their choice of address.Report11
Good lord. TMI times 12.
Hell, I remember etiquette debates on here years ago about whether it's inappropriate to have a table at the wedding that is clearly and solely for gifts because a) it indicates that you were expecting gifts, and b) guests aren't supposed to bring gifts to the wedding itself so it indicates that you were expecting your guests to break etiquette.
