    Whatever you feel most comfortable and lovely in. You do not have to match the colors. My bridesmaids are going to wear green and my mom is wearing taupe and my FMIL is wearing purple.

    I wouldn't worry about matching the colors, either. And I think pants, skirt, or dresses would be acceptable.

    The MOB and MOG can choose an outfit in the color and length that suits their style and the formality of the wedding. They don't have to match or complement the wedding party or decor. Most of us still observe the tradition of not choosing white or ivory.  Dressy pantsuits and skirts are fine, if that is what you like to wear.

    Just pick a color that you like and looks good on you.  You're not really going to be in any pictures with the WP anyway (or the other mother, for that matter).
    This is a neglected planning bio.
    This is a belated married bio, with no reviews yet because I'm lazy.

    Sometimes I feel like people think that brides are delicate little flower princesses who get all dressed up and pretty for one special moment of their dreams, when really they're just normal people who just happen to be getting married. Things shouldn't have to be sugar-coated for grown-ass women. -mstar284

    You wear whatever you want.  You're the moms of the key players, but you're not in the WP and don't have to match their colors or dress length.  At our son and DIL's wedding, the WP wore knee length pink dresses.  I wore floor length seafoam green.

    Here are the conversations my adorable DIL and DD had with me re:  what to wear.

    ME:  What would you like me to wear for your wedding?
    DIL:  Whatever you feel beautiful and comfortable in.
         Did I mention that my DIL is amazing and I love her?

    ME:  I think I found my dress for your wedding.
    DD:  Did you buy it?
    ME:  No, I thought you might want to see it first.
    DD:  Mom, if you love it, then it's perfect.  Go order it!
            Did I mention that my DD was an awesome bride?

    GL.  You're going to love being the "mom of..........." at the wedding.  It's an incredible day.
    "Trix, it's what they/our parents wanted. Why so judgemental? And why is your wedding date over a year and a half ago? And why do you not have a groom's name? And why have you posted over 12,000 posts? And why do you always say mean things to brides?" palegirl146
