Looking forward to the photos to see what all the fuss is about! At least now I'll have an excuse when you start slacking off at work - "Sorry, can't stay late, gotta get home to the wife!" Have fun with that marriage responsibility stuff. We've worked some long nights and crunch times together, but nothing could prepare you for the biggest crunch time of all: marriage. Best of luck to you both! Well, it's finally happened - you've become one of "those" people who can't stop talking about their spouse. Prepare for me to start tuning you out during those "husband this, husband that" monologues! I've enjoyed our subpar bachelor lifestyle while it lasted, but all good things must come to an end. Congrats on wifing it up! They say you lose a boyfriend or girlfriend when they get married, but you gain a nagging mother-in-law-type friend. Which would you prefer from me?

So the following Sunday, March 31st, becomes Easter according to the age-old traditions. Basically, we just hit that celestial calendar sweet spot where the full moon circles around particularly early, triggering an Easter closer to the front end of the season. Outfit Inspiration for Every Easter Celebration Church Service Chic Let's kick things off with those church services bright and early Easter Sunday. You know the vibe - modest but totally stylish. A pretty pastel dress with a swingy skirt hits that sweet spot. I'm talking blush pinks, soft mints, you can't go wrong. Just add some short sleeves or a high neckline to keep it prim and proper for the lord's house. Dress from Amazon Romantic lace details? Yes, please! That delicate embroidery screams femininity, which I'm 100% here for. Footwear-wise, slip into some close-toed heels or pumps. Don't forget a simple crossbody to stash all your essentials! Top it off with a tailored jacket or cozy sweater when those AC vents get crazy cold inside. Springtime Brunch Beauty Okay, church is dunzo which can only mean one thing - BRUNCH TIME, BABY! This is your chance to really go for those sweet spring vibes with a dreamy floral printed dress. Think bold blooms in cheerful colours like sunny yellows, pinks and blue skies. A soft, drapey wrap silhouette offers total comfort to go ham on all those tasty brunch treats. Dress from Lulus Styled with strappy sandals and a cute straw tote? Chef's kiss! Make a statement with poppin' earrings in bright gem tones. And please, don't you dare forget a floppy sunhat to keep that fresh face shaded if you take the party outdoors! Family Egg Hunt Flair Fun prints and patterns are a must for egg hunting! Go for bold stripes, zany animal motifs, cheeky fruit or veggie graphics - anything that brings a smile. Bright, energetic colors like fuchsia, lime green, or sunny yellows channel that springtime cheer. You can even get festive with Easter-themed motifs like bunnies, chicks, eggs or carrots! Dress from Impressions When it comes to shoes, function is key. Slip on some cool kicks to keep you light and agile. Fashion sneakers, low-top canvas shoes, or rubber soled sandals give you the traction and flexibility needed. Make sure you have a roomy tote or crossbody filled with deep pockets for stashing all your treasures! Countryside Charm For all you free spirits hitting up more of a rural, countryside scene this Easter, pieces with sweet rustic vibes are an absolute must! I'm talking swingy high-low hem dresses, embroidered detailing, chambray accents - that bucolic, homespun aesthetic. An eyelet embroidered smocked dress gives you that cottagecore look while keeping you cool and breezy. Dress from Joyfolie Or fully embrace the modern prairie girl energy in a long and flowy maxi dress covered in dainty ditsy prints. Pull it all together with touches like a fringed wrap, woven tote bag, and layered pendant necklaces for that perfect bohemian finish. Woven mules or block heel sandals keep you comfy but polished on any uneven, outdoor terrain. Just be sure to pack some flip flops for when you really want to rough it! Modern Minimalist Look, I get it - not everyone is about those over-the-top feminine, frilly Easter vibes. If you're more of a minimalist at heart, you can still slay with an understated but crisp spring look! Scoop up a sleek sheath dress in a pretty pastel moment like sunny whites, vibrant corals or zesty lemon yellows. A fresh shirtdress in a breezy fabric also makes for a chic, no-fuss option. Dress from Lulus Bring in some visual interest with unique details like a collar neckline, pleated accents or a sleek belt moment. Then ground the whole vibe with sculptural, geometric accessories in modern acrylic or resin finishes. I'm talking angular resin hoops, a funky perspex clutch and maybe even some oversized shields to really make it fashion. Strappy sandals or slingback kitten heels polish the whole look off with a capital P!Happy Easter Day!

The Best Mother of the Bride Outfits for Women Over 50

When it comes to weddings, all eyes are not just on the bride and groom; the parents of the couple also play a significant role. For women over 50, finding the perfect dress that balances elegance, style, and comfort is essential. The good news is that there are now more stunning options than ever before when it comes to dresses for the mother of the bride over 50. In this comprehensive guide, we'll delve into the world of mother of the bride outfits, focusing on the best options for women over 50. In this article: Why Dress Selection Matters Why Dress Selection Matters The mother of the bride dress holds immense significance as it symbolizes the mother's support and love for her daughter on one of the most important days of her life. It's a chance for the mother to shine and feel beautiful while complementing the overall theme and style of the wedding. Therefore, it's crucial to choose a dress that not only flatters your figure but also aligns with the wedding's aesthetic. Trendy Yet Timeless Gowns Long gowns are always a classic and elegant choice for mothers of the bride over 50. Look for styles and silhouettes that balance trendiness with timeless sophistication. Here are some of our favorites: The Lace Gown: From soft florals to geometric patterns, lace imparts sophistication. Look for a style with 3⁄4 length sleeves or a matching jacket for the most versatility. Lace in deeper jewel tones like navy, emerald or plum is especially stunning. The Chiffon Gown: A flowy chiffon dress makes you look and feel amazing on the dance floor. A V-neck, twist knot or draped bodice provides flattering shape. Go for a floral print or soft pastel colour. The Embellished Gown: If you want to stand out a bit more, go for a touch of sparkle. Look for gowns with embellishments like beads, crystals or sequins placed judiciously at the neckline, waist or shoulders. Avoid over-embellishment. The Two-Piece Gown: A gown with a separate top and skirt offers versatility. Get more wear by pairing them with other items in your wardrobe after the wedding. A beaded top with a flowing chiffon skirt is a stylish combo. Figure Flattering Styles No matter your shape or size, the key is finding a mother of the bride dress silhouette that flatters your figure. Here are some of our favorite looks: The A-Line Dress: This gently flared silhouette is universally flattering. It highlights the upper body while skimming softly over the hips and thighs. A classic scoop or V-neckline complements the shape. The Sheath Dress: A tailored sheath can be striking on a mature figure. Look for interesting details like a bateau neckline or draped asymmetrical hemline.  The Empire Waist Dress: This Regency-era style has a high waistline that hits just below the bust. It’s perfect for disguising the midsection and supporting the bust. Select soft fabrics to avoid a boxy shape. The Wrap Dress: Cinch in the waistline with the strategic draping of a wrap dress. Jersey knits work well for more casual weddings while silky wraps make an elegant statement. Chic Jumpsuits & Pantsuits If you prefer pants over dresses, today’s jumpsuits and pantsuits offer gorgeous options for the mother of the bride. The Dressy Jumpsuit: A touch of shimmer or lace transforms a basic jumpsuit into wedding attire. Look for halter, wrap and off-the-shoulder necklines. The Drapey Jumpsuit: Fluid fabrics like jersey or crepe move beautifully in a drapey jumpsuit. Empire or blouson waists provide flattering shape for all figures. The Pantsuit: From sleek to statement-making, today's pantsuits are far from boring. Look for strong shoulders, nipped-in waists and wide or cuffed pants. The Patterned Pantsuit: Make an entrance in a boldly printed pantsuit. Florals and geometric designs feel fresh and celebratory. Keep jewelry minimal. Colour Palette Ideas When it comes to mother of the bride dresses, colour is key for looking vibrant at any age. Follow these guidelines to choose colours that complement your complexion: Fair skin: Blush pink, sky blue, mint green, and violet bring out the pink undertones. Avoid yellow and orange which can wash you out. Metallics like pewter, platinum and rose gold flatter too. Olive skin: Bold ruby red, emerald green, and sapphire blue play up olive undertones. Corals and tangerines are great bright choices. Metallic bronzes and golds glow beautifully. Darker skin: Vibrant jewel tones look best - think deep purple, ruby red, teal, fuchsia and royal blue. Pair them with metallics in copper, bronze and 24k gold. Avoid pastels. Neutrals: Can't go wrong with black, white, navy, gray and blush which work with all skin tones. Choose textured fabrics to avoid looking washed out. Of course, the bride’s colour scheme is also a consideration, so check with her before going too bold! Adhering to a colour palette of 2-3 colours is a foolproof approach. Fabric & Texture Touches Fabric choice and texture details are key finishing touches that elevate any mother of the bride look. Look for fabrics with beautiful drape and movement like chiffon, crepe, charmeuse and jersey. They skim gracefully as you move. Luxurious fabrics telegraph elegance – try satin, silk, lace, brocade, jacquard and anything with a subtle sheen. Embellished fabrics provide visual interest. Seek out metallics, sequins, beading, embroidery and applique in small doses. Layering different fabrics and textures creates dimension. Pair a lace jacket with a flowy dress or metallic shoes with a satin gown. Don’t forget linings! A smooth lining will make any dress or skirt hang properly and move fluidly as you walk, dance and mingle. The Finishing Touches Complete your mother of the bride look with the perfect shoes, accessories and beauty touches. 1. Shoes: The best shoes strike a balance between fashion and comfort so you can dance the night away. Look for 2-3 inch heels, cushioned insoles and ankle straps or peep toes for support. Metallics add flair. Flats or wedge sandals work for outdoor weddings. 2. Handbag: A beaded or embroidered evening bag no smaller than your fist holds essentials without being bulky. Go hands-free with a wristlet or pocket hidden in your dress. For day weddings, opt for a sturdy shoulder bag large enough for a sweater or touch-up items. 3. Jewelry: Keep necklines and embellished gowns in mind when choosing jewelry. Opt for dainty drop earrings or a single statement necklace. Rings and bracelets should be minimal and comfortable. 4. Hair & Makeup: Schedule a trial run before the wedding to perfect your wedding day look. Update your go-to hairstyle with lose waves or a sleek updo. Ask your makeup artist to keep your makeup natural but defined with a bolder lip colour. This will ensure you look great in photos! The Perfect Mother of the Bride Outfit Awaits! Your daughter’s wedding day deserves an outfit as joyful and elegant as the occasion. We hope these diverse dress styles, recommendations and tips help inspire you to find a mother of the bride dresses that lets your inner light shine.
