Shopping for your Mother of the Bride Outfit
Once the date is set and the bride has found her dress, now is the time to shop for your all-important mother of the bride outfit. We have a few general tips to consider when shopping, as well as specific boutiques and designers around the country who will help make you feel comfortable and confident on this special day.
Deciding on your outfit can be a little daunting, our first tip is to discuss with your daughter and your future son-in-law the colours that other people will be wearing. You will be in countless photographs with family members and the bridesmaids so it is important that you don’t clash!
The most important thing is that you feel comfortable. Your daughter’s wedding day is a once in a lifetime occasion and you do not want to be worrying about your dress or your hat whilst making memories that last a lifetime.
One of the other considerations you need to make is whether you are going to wear a hat. Traditionally, the mother of the bride would wear a hat on the wedding day. This is one of the only opportunities to wear a hat these days, so why not visit a millinery and have something truly special made for the day?
