As Mother of the Bride, you are the hostess of the entire event, so your dress very important. Mother's of the Bride are in few pictures with the bridal party, so your dress does not have to match, per se. Moms should choose a color that is good for you, and makes you feel beautiful. As you will be moving around, comfort is key. Your attire sets the tone of the wedding. Obviously, you should consider the overall color scheme and factors such as the time of day of the wedding and the venue. As soon as possible, you should inform the groom's mother as to what you will be wearing, so she can dress appropriately too.
As Mother of the Groom, you are the most honored guest. Make sure to pick something flattering and enhancing. Moms are not junior bridesmaids and don't have to match the bridesmaids, or the mother of the bride. You should definitely follow the lead of the mother of the bride as to formality.
My Little Bridal Boutique loves our moms and we carry a beautiful selection of gowns perfect for the mother of the bride and groom. We have every length, every size and virtually every color. As covering the arms seems to be the number one concern, all of our moms' dresses come with shawls, bolero's or jackets. We can always add any kind of cap sleeves, jackets or cover up.
We are happy to offer a Mother's Brunch for the mother of the bride and mother of the groom that come shopping together. Just call and schedule an appointment and we will treat you to a fun and bonding appointment.
