There is no doubt that the bride is the biggest spotlight of the wedding, however, do not forget the mother, who brought up the beautiful bride. We have to redefine the fashion of mother of the bride(and the groom). There are, of course, lots of options for the modern moms. Then, what are the flattering fashions for the mothers?
It’s hard to define a ‘mother-of-the-bride’ dress nowadays, as you may have seen a lot of younger mothers wearing halter dresses with jackets. Some may wear suits and more elaborate dresses.
It has also become acceptable to wear sexy, elegant outfits that show some skin. The general trend: moving away from the traditional styles and towards a more hip look.
Also, mother of the bride will need to discuss the attire with the mother of the groom, to avoid wearing clashing colors, or worse yet, showing up in the exact same gown.
If the daughter doesn’t have her heart set on a particular shade for mom, there are plenty of choices that will fit her color scheme. Bone, off-white, navy and black remain the most popular mother-of-the-bride shades, while sage green, sienna and pale to bright blues are steadily gaining ground. Black is an especially fashionable choice, especially for ultra-formal evening weddings. Only white remains a wedding-day taboo.
Like purchasing a wedding dress, mothers should also begin shopping at least six months in advance. This is an important event, and you don’t want to have to settle for something that isn’t quite right. Lastly, pick a dress that can be worn again. If you make the right choice, you’ll have a great style that will work for cocktail parties, other weddings or even a nice dinner. Something simple, like a suit or a gown with a jacket, can be worn more than once. What about the silver mother of bride dress above from vowslove.com? It’s simple and versatile, what do you think?
