Fashion Tips for the Mother of the Bride and Groom

April 18, 2018 | Posted in Uncategorized, Weddings

Your bridesmaids aren’t the only women in your wedding that you’ll need to go dress shopping for. Both the mother of the bride and the mother of the groom will need to pick out a dress for your special day. Traditionally, the mother of the bride would wear blue to welcome their new son and mothers of the groom would wear pink in honor of their new daughter. Today, however, many brides and mothers have decided to step outside of tradition and wear attire that suits them personally. Here are some fashion tips to keep in mind when choosing your mother of the bride dress.

Soft Colors with Embellishments
Though some mothers opt to go with a traditional two-piece dress suit, others want to feel more elegant on their daughter and son’s big day. If your mom would like to look a bit more fashionable, why not choose a soft colored mother of the bride dress complete with embellishments like sequins, jewels, or lace?

Compliment the Bridesmaids
If a two-piece suit isn’t your mother’s thing but she also doesn’t want to outdo the bride in a long and flowing sequin gown, you can have her to choose a dress that compliments the bridesmaids. Choosing a similar color and length, you can allow your mother to stand out by allowing her to select a dress that is age-appropriate and makes her feel confident.

Bold and Cultured
For those who are planning a cultural wedding, what better way to dress your mothers than to have them wear outfits that fit with the overall theme and culture of your wedding? This mother who is dressed in a bold and colorful Saree complements the tone of the wedding very well and preserves precious cultural heritage of the families involved. When it comes to dressing the mother of the bride and the mother of the groom, the skies are really the limit. Make sure you indicate if there is a specific style, fabric, or color that the mothers should keep in mind when shopping for their outfits.
