Complete Guide to Choosing A Mother of Bride Dress

When we think of a wedding, we think of the bride and groom. However, it is quite a special day for the mother of the bride if you think about it. It is a celebration of their child's new beginning and independence. This is why it is important to bring your A-game look to the table. The mother of the bride got to look fabulous on this day as well!

WHAT SHOULD THE MOTHER OF THE BRIDE WEAR TO A WEDDING?

Unusual Mother of the Bride & Groom Dresses

It seems like there's a misconception about what a mother of the bride should look like at their child's wedding. The words 'beige' or 'matronly' usually come to mind. Are we seriously still in the 18th century? The mother of the bride should be more free spirited and wear the dress of their choice; whether it is a body fitting sexy dress or a more conservative look, as long as she's confident and the bride consents. Previously, there was a 'no-white' rule but recently many brides have chosen to have the entire wedding entourage wear white. This rule seems to not hold much water anymore. Remember that communication is key between both the mother of groom and bride to avoid any mishaps or disagreements on what to wear.

  • COMMUNICATION IS KEY: this might seem like common knowledge but trust me, many people easily overlook it.

Input from both ends are important but the bride should still have the final say. Understand the bride's standard can help narrow down your search margin and make your dress shopping slightly easier.
  • DRESS FOR THE SEASON: Here is another important tip that may seem like common sense. This is not only for the mother of the bride dress but for any outfit. One must keep the season of the wedding in mind. Pick a dress that goes with the season; let's not wear a winter dress during the summer, that just sounds like a big yikes!
  • CAREFUL WITH THE BLING: Accessories can either make or break an outfit. Let's avoid using too much bling; first that would make an overall look tacky and second, let's not steal the center of attention now, shall we?
  • HUE HARMONY: It certainly is a must to match the color of the dress to the theme of the wedding. We do not want to wear something that makes you look out of the place. Having the wedding theme in mind can help you as a guide while dress shopping. Always keep that in the back of your mind to not be the odd one out at the wedding.
  • KNOW YOURSELF: Understanding what style and color compliments your body type will serve as a guide when dress shopping. Having full knowledge of this can help you choose the right dress for both comfort and style.
  • TRY NEW THINGS: This is actually the perfect excuse for you to try something you have always wanted to. Wedding are meant to be lavish and refreshing, so what more of a perfect chance do you have to try out that new style!
