Mother of the Bride Dresses and Outfits Northern Ireland Mother of the Bride Northern Ireland Stockist Jonzara offer their top tips for looking your best on that most special of days.
As mother of the bride you want to look your best without upstaging the bride but what colour do you choose, hat or fascinator, long or short - there are just so many choices the whole process is a little bit complex! We’ve rounded up so top tips to help you pick the perfect outfit.
Colour Gone are the days when a mother of the bride is expected to wear a ghastly garment solely because it’s the same colour as the bridesmaids. These days mums are choosing a colour that’s right for them but still blends or compliments the colours of bridal party. Only one rule here – you can’t wear white!
Style Two considerations for this one. Firstly you need a style that suits your shape, if you don’t like the tops of your arms buy a dress with a sleeve or matching bolero or maybe you’re worried about your tummy, opt for a dress with a detail to draw the eye away from ‘problem’ areas. Secondly you need a style appropriate to the venue – a more traditional three piece might be perfect for a church wedding while a more contemporary marquee affair may call for a shorter length or more casual feel.
