What Color Dress Does the Bride's Mother Wear?

The bride's mother generally chooses her dress in a color that coordinates with, but does not match, the color of the attendants' dresses, according to About Weddings. Typically, she stays away from white, but all other colors are an option.

If the attendants' dresses are purple, for example, lavender or silver make a good choice for the mother of the bride, who usually sets the tone, both in color and style, for the attire for the other mothers and grandmothers attending the wedding. The mother of the groom usually consults with the bride's mother prior to making her own choice so as to keep the styles in line with one another and the colors in shades that complement rather than clash.
