How to Help your Mom find the Perfect Dress for Your Big Day!

Mother of the Bride (& Groom) dresses

Your wedding is a huge moment in your life – but trust us when we say that it is equally amazing for your mother, too. In fact, your mom might have been thinking about what her daughter’s wedding would be like just as long as you have been thinking about it, or even longer perhaps!

Obviously, you want the very best for your mom, so what are some of the most important things to keep in mind when helping your mother choose the right dress for your Big Day?

We’ve gathered some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

· There are no rules as to what the mother of the bride can or cannot wear. Most frequently, however, the mother of the bride and the mother of the groom choose to wear colors that coordinate well with the wedding’s theme and color scheme. One option is for them to coordinate and agree on dresses that are similar to each other in terms of length and cut (to avoid the risk of potentially making one or the other feel overdressed or underdressed).

· If geography permits it, it’s often helpful to go with your mom when she shops for her mother-of-the-bride gown. Being there for her when she shops and tries on different options is not only helpful, but it can also be a time for making great memories. Hopefully she did the same with you when you were searching for your wedding dress, so why do it for her too? Helping your mom pick out a dress that flatters her, goes with the bridal theme and colors, and generally makes her feel good is something she will definitely appreciate!

· Don’t be afraid to think out of the “classic mother of the bride dresses” and their cuts. For instance, illusion lace dresses and embroidered jackets are quite popular with mothers this year – and they can look amazing! Sophisticated and classy, these dresses are a true statement in their own right.

· Finally, an actual dress is not mandatory either. Some moms will feel more comfortable and still look elegant wearing a stylish pant suit. These are now available in trendy and flattering colors that should definitely be considered as well!
