In many ways your wedding day is just as important for Mom as it is for you. She’s always been there in your hour of need. Clothed and fed you when you were young. Picked you up and comforted you when you fell. Your wedding is a chance to give something back. She’s proud of you and wants to show you off. She has to look the part, and she has to overshadow the groom’s mom. In modern weddings, mothers of the bride are free to look at their most glamorous best. Gone are the days when she had to dress up in something matronly, in dated colours and styles. Problem is, all the options could be a bit overwhelming. She might need some help choosing. That’s where you come in.
Tradition dictates that the mother of the bride dress should complement the wedding party’s colours. Therefore, it’s probably best to wait until the bridesmaid dresses have been sorted. It’s probably an idea not to go for the same colour and shade as the bridal dress. You want her to look good, but you’re the star of the show. The rules are lax for Mother of the Bride dresses, just as long as it’s appropriate for the venue. Whilst a strapless dress might be inappropriate for a church wedding, it would be a great choice for a beach ceremony. A mother of the bride dress should be elegant, appropriate and understated.
Traditionally, a mother of the bride buys her dress first, then communicates her choice to the mother of the groom. The mother of the groom might have special requirements, so it’s important to give her plenty of notice. A mother of the bride dress should be bought no later than three months before the wedding. It might be an idea for both mothers to buy their dress from the same shop. Just to ensure there are no mix ups, and styles can contrast and match as required.
