How to choose the mother of bride outfits
If you want to wear a mother of the bride dress, you have a variety of lengths, styles, fits and designs from which you can choose.
Mother of the Bride Separates
It’s also worth mentioning that you could buy a formal dress and then separately purchase a dressy coordinating jacket, bolero, or wrap to wear with it. It is also possible to buy separate dressy bottoms (pants or skirts) and pair them with separately purchased dressy tops (blouses or jackets) Just make sure that if you choose to wear separates, your outfit is appropriate and formal enough for the wedding.
Choosing the Color of you Mother of the Bride Outfit
Always consult your daughter first before choosing the color of your outfit. She may have a particular color in mind that she wants you to wear. One option she might suggest is to wear a color that compliments or coordinates with the color her wedding party is wearing. If she has no preference in the color of your outfit, make sure that when you choose your mother of the bride outfit, you don’t pick white or ivory (as that color should be reserved just for the bride). All back or dark gray suits may look too business-like so it’s best to avoid those colors. You want all eyes to be on your daughter, so it’s a good idea to avoid any colors that are too vibrant or flashy and that might distract from the bride. Traditionally, mother of the brides didn’t wear black dresses to a wedding. Today, some mothers do wear black dresses, but many people still feel it is not appropriate. If you are considering wearing a black dress, make sure this is okay with your daughter and her fiancee.
Tips for Finding Mother of the Bride Outfits
Whether you shop online or in person in bridal shops, you will, of course, want to browse through the mother of the bride sections of these stores. However, if you have a hard time finding the right suit or a pant suit in the mother of the bride section, you can increase your options by searching other places that sell special occasion attire or formal wear but that aren’t specifically labeled as mother of the bride attire.
Shoes and Accessories for the Mother of the Bride
Shoes and jewelry are the finishing touches of mother of the bride outfits. Always choose your outfit first before buying your shoes or deciding what jewelry to wear. Make sure you pick comfortable shoes that will enable you to enjoy the wedding day and focus on your daughter. When choosing your jewelry pieces, it’s best to wear classic, timeless pieces. You don’t want anything flashy that will distract from you daughter. For a coordinated look, wear all one type of jewelry. For example, wear all gold, all sterling silver, or all pearls.
