MOB and Dad's Wife

i need help!


My dad's wife (who he has been married to for 5 years) asked me what my accent colors are for the wedding,  because she wants to get a matching dress. The only problem is that my mom will most likely be wearing an accent color... CORAL (they do not really get along so i know if both of them show up in the same color my mom wont be happy).


 


 How should I / How can i suggest another color to my dads wife with out hurting anyones feelings??  MY colors are GOLD with BLack and a splash of coral.


ANY advice?

My suggestion would be to keep mom in the coral and put dads wife in a color that matches say maybe the mom of the groom . When in doubt black is best !!! Bumping for more help .

I would tell her black & gold and keep coral for your mom.

There are some very pretty and subtle (not trashy gold) options - this is just the first one I found to give you an idea of what i mean

I totally agree. Let mom wear coral and have her in black with touches of gold.

They are "supposed" to wear coordinating colors, but in this day that rule is a more relaxed. I would just tell her that your mom has already decided on a coral dress and that you would feel more comfortable that she wear a different color or better yet go dress shopping with her! Our colors were yellow and blue and my mom wore lavander, my step mom and his mom wore black and his step mom wore an eggplant/wine color.
