mob in navy - me, mog, in royal??


I'm the MOG at a late summer wedding. The BMs and MOB will be wearing navy blue. I've found a very flattering dress in royal blue that I love. Is that too matchy and imitating, or different enough and complimentary? It truly is a much brighter blue and of course all the dresses are the same length. Will it be unifying in the pictures, or look like I had no immagination and went along with the rest of the group choosing just another shade of blue? If so, back to the dressing rooms!

I think it sounds lovely as long as the formality of the dress is similar to that of the MOB's dress. You wouldn't want to wear a dress that looks too much like hers. A shade of blue would be more unifying than if you chose a totally different color.

Why on earth not? You don't have to match or not match. If you love the dress and it's appropriate for the type of wedding, buy it and enjoy.
