With so many designers focusing specifically on mother of the bride outfits there is no reason to feel you have to look frumpy. After all all eyes turn to the proud parents who traditionally arrive at the church or ceremony before the bride. It is therefore important to look your best without upstaging the bride! We will help you through the minefield of choosing an outfit as mother of the bride which you feel comfortable in, the bride likes, and hopefully does not clash with the outfit chosen by the mother of the groom.
Weddings are one of the few occasions that most of us ever wear a hat, and for some, the prospect is daunting. But shopping for a hat can be a lot of fun, and it’s well worth visiting a specialist hat shop, or milliners, to find the right hat for you and your outfit. Don’t assume a hat has to match your outfit exactly. A toning shade often looks stunning. Alternatively, opt for neutral black, navy or cream, which can be trimmed with feathers, ribbons, flowers or beads to pick up the dominant colour from your dress or coat. On the big day, hold your head high and enjoy that added sense of style.
