Although most of the focus is on finding the perfect wedding dress, equal care and attention should be given to the mother of the bride-to-be.
If you want to stand out from the crowd but not upstage the bride on her special day, keep these tips in mind.
It is important to consider styles and colours in advance to avoid last-minute scramble and remember to find out what the groom’s mother will be wearing so as not to clash.
Choose a colour that best suits your personal style and that matches the wedding decor scheme. For an ultra-fashionable evening wedding, black is especially on-trend. Its formal, sophisticated and although some may say wearing black to a wedding is taboo, this is no longer true in our modern times.
If you feel like sporting a dash of colour, a beautiful emerald green, navy or floral print design suits a day wedding perfectly. Keep it simple with accessories and add a statement piece, like chic clutch bag or a bold necklace. Cover your shoulders with a bolero jacket, opt for a pop of colour if you’re wearing a plainer dress, or tone your look down with a simple shape and fabric.
Allow yourself time to consider various styles and fits. Once the bride has established her colour theme and the style of her dress, you should start designing or shopping for your own. It’s worth investing in a dress you can wear again, so keep it simple, comfortable and versatile.
