MOB Outfit - opinions please!!

Hi all! My bridesmaid's dresses are black with emerald green fascinator and jewellery! Hoping to incorporate the green elsewhere such as the favours and table decorations.

Having a problem finding a dress for MOB that will 'tone' in. Do you think this would

Or is there another colour you could think of??



Thanks! xximage

    Silver would go nicely with black and your mum could wear either black or emerald accessories. I had the dilema of toning in with my daughter's wedding colours as her bm's were all in a wine colour. What colour are you wearing?



    We decided I'd go with ivory, the same as my daughter, with black accessories to match the black feathers in her bouquet.



    I've posted this pic several times on here, but I do love it so any opportunity to show it. Here goes again!

    Your outfit is lovely! Mum tried on plain dresses but I felt she needed a bit of colour as I dont want it to look too black/white! Do you think the dress I posted a link to would not look right?

    I think the dress is lovely. It's a bit too fussy for me personally, but I'm not the one wearing it. Big and flowery just isn't me but I do like it on other people.



    Has your mum tried it on? If it looks good on her and she feels good in it, then she should definitely go for it. It's important that she feels comfortable and with your colour scheme you really shouldn't have a problem with clashing colours, as everything goes with black and white.



    Good luck! Keep us informed, with pics if possible too!
  • Aww thanks for replying! Yeah the dress is fab on her!! She has found another which is black with grey and beige flowers on it - she hasn't tried it on yet but it is on its way!!

    Oooh, I like that one! It looks really rich. Now that's one that I would be able to wear, but it's not me we're choosing an outfit for. I've had my moment, now it's your mum's turn. I think that would really tone in with your bridesmaids and has a subtle contrasting colour.



    I think that one would go better with your colour scheme, but then it depends which one looks best on your mum and which one she feels best in. As I said, you could get away with any colour and how your mum feels is what matters most. How about posting some pics of your mum wearing it?
