Tips on Choosing a Perfect Mother of the Bride Dress

Mother of the bride is one of the important roles in a wedding. Whether she loves fashion or not, you certainly want her look an elegant way at the wedding. Last time we showed you some mostly wear colors for a mother of the bride dress (in case you missed it, read our previous post on here), and today we're giving you some other tips of do's and don'ts for choosing a perfect mother dress. Read on!

Do's and Don'ts for Choosing a Perfect Mother of the Bride Dress


Do:



1. Take your age into account! Of course you should neither wear something that make you look too mature, but nor choose something that are like she's 21. Choose dresses designed for women 30 years old and up, and don’t be afraid to veto a choice that is not age appropriate.

2. Choose a dress with jacket or bolero to avoid too much exposure for the dress. This detail will make the mother feel at her ease, and at the same time, appropriate for the wedding.

3. Pick an appropriate palette. Typically the bride would like her mom or MOG to wear a specific color, or color within a palette for the wedding party or wedding theme.

Don't:


1. Reveal too much. Wedding is meant to be a sacred and classy occasion, no bride wants everyone talking about the sexy or exposed dress her mom (or groom’s mom) wore down the aisle. To make sure this doesn’t happen, avoid choosing a low cut necklines, slinky fabrics, and very short hemlines for the moms in the wedding.


2. Poorly tailoring train. A mom walking the aisle in a poorly tailored dress looks sloppy, and can ruin an otherwise elegant wedding ceremony.
3. Over accessorize! It's true that mother should look elegant, but never upstage the bride. It's the big day of your daughter or daughter in law, the bridal-esque accessories should be left for the bride!
