December calls for many weddings. This is also the month when lots of couples are renewing their vows or celebrating their wedding anniversary. If you´re planning for your big day, you tend to plan for everything. From the motif, the wedding venue, the giveaways, the catering, your wedding dress, and even the mother of the bride´s dress.
When I was prepping for my wedding five years ago, I took charge shopping for my mom´s outfit and I was coordinating with my fiance´s mom so that her dress would also coordinate with our motif.
What the mother of the bride wears to the wedding is as important (read, invites as much curiosity) as the bride´s wedding dress. So be sure to help your mom look her very best on this special day.
Jacquard Dress, Shift Dress, Peplum Dress
The style that best suits the mother of the bride depends on the concept of your wedding as well as her personal style and body type. If your mom´s style leans towards the classic, shift dresses with bolero or jacquard dresses with full skirt are a great option. If her style is contemporary, peplum dresses, lace inset detailing, or even the now popular muted creams and blacks with beaded features are something she can consider.
The Jacket and Trousers
Jacket, Trousers, Clutch
If modern brides opt for short wedding dress, modern mothers of the bride opt for the suit pants. Go dressy in a beautiful tailored jacket and classic wide-leg trousers polished with a matching clutch and high heels.
Velour Dress, Shift Dress, Maxi Skirt, Hat
Mothers of the bride can look equally chic and fashionable in a skirt. Look for a high waist peplum skirt to team with a lace top, or try a midi skirt with matching bolero. A pleated long skirt in solid color is easy to pull-off, simply partner it with a sleek printed top and killer high heels. A stylish hat with flower feather detail will surely give your wedding outfit a strong statement.
Remember, as the mother of the bride, she´ll appear in almost every photo so it´s of importance that she looks her best on your wedding day.
