Usually the color and style of the dress worn by the mother of the bride somewhat coordinate with the wedding party members. Sometimes the mother of the bride chooses a different shade of the color worn by the bridesmaids. They also choose a completely neutral color that still coordinates well in pictures.
Mothers also choose a conservative length for their dresses. Usually mothers choose floor length gowns. The cut and upper bodice of the gown is also more conservative than the styles chosen by younger women. The bride should help choose the mother's dress for better coordination and look.
It is a good idea for the mother of the bride to coordinate her dress with the mother of the groom so the wedding pictures look great. The mothers can go shopping together with the bride or the bride can send both mothers some dress options that she loves. Both of the mothers can even wear the same color if the styles of dresses do not look the same.
However, the one tradition that the mother of the bride looks extremely matronly is gone. Instead, the mothers show off their figures in a way that is elegant, classy, and age appropriate without unnecessarily aging them. How formal or informal the dress is depends on the kind of ceremony, the location, and the time of year the wedding is taking place. The shoes also need to follow the same rules, as well as being comfortable to walk and stand in all day.
