What should the mother of the bride/ groom wear?

Mother’s-of-the-bride/groom no longer has to wear shades of beige and look less than fashionable. Here are some tips to help the mother-of-the-bride/groom choose the perfect outfit for their child’s special day.

Let the bride guide you – Have a look at what the bride’s style, colors, and themes are to get an idea of the tone of the event.

Color cues – It is nice if the mother-of-the-bride groom compliments the wedding party’s colors. Look at having a chat with the bride and ask for a swatch of the fabrics she intends to use as a guide.

The venue – You want your outfit to suit the venue, for example, if the wedding is on the beach, look for a semi-formal dress with flats. On the other hand, if the wedding is a formal event, you may want to wear a shift with a fitted jacket and heels.

Start early – If you want to look your best, consider looking for your dress, at least three months before the event. – To feel the most comfortable, it is essential to always stay true to your personal style. Most formal attire will take at least one month to arrive if ordered online. Giving yourself three months gives you enough time to do any alterations and shop for your accessories.

Makeup – Your makeup and hair should also reflect the wedding party and the venue. Speak to a professional hair and makeup artist to help you get ready for the event.
