Guideline for Choosing Mother of the Bride Dress

Whether you're the mother of the bride or the groom, there are some easy rules of thumb to use when choosing your mother of the bride dresses. Look at the below suggestions, hope these would give you some help.

Start your shopping early. You should start searching for your dress no later than three moths before the wedding to allow time for special orders and alterations. You may choose to look in department or specialty stores for your dress, but don't pass over traditional bridal salons. Many have options for the mother of the bride, as well!

Pick out the right dress color! Metallics, navy, blush, chocolate brown and jewel tones are all beautiful and safe bets for a mother of the bride or groom. Traditionally, avoiding dresses in white, ivory or champagne, black and red is the standard—though these traditions are shifting and we've seen moms look chic and tasteful in all of the above.

Follow the formality and style of the wedding. Depending on the formality of the wedding, anything from a classic suit or a chic sheath to a cocktail dress or formal gown can work. If the bride would like you to wear a style you're not happy wearing or you like something she's not thrilled about, talk to each other and do your best to find a compromise that works for both of you—it's her day, but it's just as special for you and you have to feel comfortable with your choice.
