Mother of the Bride / Groom What to Wear

By  | 

It may be your son or daughter’s big day but any proud mother will want to look as good as possible for her child. Picking the perfect outfit for the ocassion can seem like an impossible task. It’s important to look stylish yet age appropriate, but most of all comfortable.

And any outfit also needs to stand the test of time – as those photos will last forever! With all these things in mind where should you start when choosing your outfit? Here are the top trends for summer and  how to style them.

Mother of the Bride or Groom

Pretty Pastels

Perfect for summer weddings, pretty pale hues are huge this season. Try feminine shades of lilac, rose or sky blue. A fitted shift dress or pencil skirt with a matching jacket would be an elegant and practical choice. After all, you’ll need to choose an outfit that you’ll be comfortable in all day. To work the pastels trend choose a shade that suits your skin tone to avoid looking washed out. Accessorise with a clutch and shoes to complement your outfit.

Deeper Tones

If pastels aren’t your style try a deeper colour. Choose any shade of blue from glacier to aquamarine or navy, or even a deep pink.  Remember to choose appropriate to your body shape. If colour blocking isn’t for you, try an abstract print.

Floral Print

A more obvious choice perhaps, but floral print shouldn’t be overlooked this summer. On-trend florals feature bold flowers in vibrant colour or pretty pastels. Be brave with fuchsia or for a more subtle look you could opt for a neutral dress with a pastel floral detail. The most flattering shape for all sizes is the bias cut midi dress with flared skirt. For an understated look, pair your printed dress with a block coloured jacket and complementing accessories.

Before you opt for your outfit, consider the wedding party’s colour scheme. Complementing the rest of the wedding party is important, as you don’t want to clash in those photos. Whatever colour or pattern you choose, go for an outfit that is comfortable and age appropriate.

    Hi Ladies, these look great! Unfortunately my mother hasn’t a notion what to get for my Autumn wedding this October….will some of the looks do for Autumn too or what’s coming up in the trends??

    Purples and Pinks would work well for Autumn, so perhaps take a look at Jacques Vert’s Ruby Rose collection
