The mother of the bride wears beige and keeps quiet. But I would think another 
color would be more fun.

Was at a 20s/30s wedding in June past...The 'other women' of the wedding party 
all wore shades of beige silk and lace...including mothers and grandmother.  
The BMs had different styles (kneeish) Quite a lovely affair.

Lace perhaps, but Not Beige.  Leaning toward a 30s formal inspired dress.
