Trendy Mother of the Bride Outfits
The mother of the bride is one of the most important people at her daughter’s wedding. She is often the matriarch of the family, and may even be helping to plan the big day. As such, it is important that you choose an outfit that expresses who you are, and what style you like. Here are some tips on how to do just that:
#1 – Glamorous Dresses
The first thing to know about the mother of the bride is that she should choose an outfit that expresses her personality. If she’s more conservative and traditional, a long, elegant dress with pretty accessories will be perfect for her. If she’s more of an outgoing woman who likes to make a statement, then perhaps something more colourful or vibrant would work better?
Whatever style you choose, it’s important that you feel confident in your own skin and comfortable in your own shoes—both literally and figuratively! As long as the dress is age-appropriate (and tasteful), no one should judge what you wear!
#2 – A Touch of Sparkle
If you’re looking for a way to show off your personality, a sparkly dress is the perfect choice. You can use a sparkling belt, necklace, or brooch to accentuate any outfit, but if you want something more dramatic, try a full-blown sparkly ensemble.
#3 – Going Dramatic
If you want to make an impact, then going dramatic in your look might be just the thing for you.
Choose a dress that makes a statement on its own. Avoid wearing something too plain or casual if you want your dress to stand out. You can do this by choosing a high neckline with lots of detail and drama, or by choosing a long flowing skirt that adds volume and flair as well as hiding any imperfections in your figure.
If it’s still not dramatic enough for you, add accessories like jewellery or even shoes with heels.
#4 – Serenity of Blue
Blue is a popular colour for mother-of-the-bride dresses. It is known for being calming and is often associated with water, which can be soothing.
For women who have a lot of grey hair, this may be an ideal choice because it won’t make their hair look too harsh or unnatural.
#5 – Classy with a Twist
You can be classy and fashionable at the same time, or you can be classy and fun at the same time. You can even be classy and edgy at the same time. Do you see? It’s possible to wear a traditionally elegant outfit, but still make it your own by adding something silly or quirky.
Take your mother-of-the-bride look from boring to bold by adding a colourful belt, or wear an embellished cardigan over a simple blouse.
Personality & Style
As the mother of the bride, you are a special guest. And while your daughter may want to tailor her wedding day to suit her own personal tastes and style, don’t feel like you have to put yourself in a box when it comes to your outfit. Instead, choose an outfit that expresses who you are—it’s one of the few opportunities that will truly show off your personality.
If there is any dress code for this occasion (such as semi-formal or black tie), then follow those rules. If not, think about what time of day this event takes place: if it’s a daytime affair, then something more casual would be appropriate; if it’s going to be held during evening hours with dancing planned later in the evening, then go with something more formal.
The mother of the bride has her own style and personality; she should choose an outfit that expresses that. Whatever works for you is great as long as it makes you feel good on your family’s big day.
