Perfect Dress Styling for Mother of the Bride
For a Mother of the Bride or Groom outfit, there are many factors to consider when choosing a dress style:
This includes putting together an outfit that complements the theme and style of the wedding.
Take into consideration the colour and style of what the bride, other mother and bridesmaid party are wearing.
A dress, a dress and jacket, a pants suit or separates that are fashionable, comfortable and compliment your silhouette.
Floor length dresses or tea-length dresses are the most popular today.
An outfit choice in your favourite colour that will make you feel confident on the wedding day.
Today's mother of the bride or mother of the groom shouldn't feel restricted to the traditional two-piece dress and jacket or suit style.
You do not have to wear one solid outfit colour, you can wear a toning or accent colour in a jacket, shoe or other accessory.
Black is now not excluded as a colour option for an outfit but check with the bride first.
A modern stylish mother can wear a dress with glittering accents and sequins, lace embellishments, in a softer more flattering fabric like chiffon.
In fact, mother of the bride dress etiquette has changed over the years, offering a stylish mother the opportunity to truly showcase her own personal style and colour.
Having trouble finding a dress with sleeves, the search is over, at Forever, our in-house seamstress can add a long sleeve, cap sleeve, short sleeve or flutter sleeve or cape to most dresses.

When to shop for a Mother of the Bride Outfit

And, we've got the rest of the family covered too.
