Congratulations! Your daughter is getting married! And we are here to give you a little help along the way.

Your little girl has found her perfect man. You are delighted, but also probably feeling a little apprehensive towards the whole planning process. Never mind her dress, what on earth will you wear?

You will be acting as a hostess at the wedding and reception; ensuring the guests are enjoying themselves. This also includes standing in the receiving line, sitting at the parents table, and making sure the bride has greeted all her guests. So you will definitely want to be looking your best!

One of the top trends in Mother of the Bride fashion is pastel colours. These colours are easy to wear and compliment most peoples skin tones whilst also being flattering. These colours look good without making a massive “LOOK AT ME!” statement. This is your way of letting your daughter stand out and be the belle of the ball.

Another great trend is lace incorporated into your outfit. Lace detailing can add a sophisticated edge to your outfit whilst still being subtle. This trend will mostly be worn by the younger, more fashion conscious mother who is looking for something a little bit different.

Sheer sleeves have been seen in many of designer Mother of the Bride outfits this season. This is a great way for someone who is not so confident about their figure to still show a little off whilst also keeping you cool if it is going to be a warm day. Sheer sleeves are very flattering, giving you just the amount of coverage to slim down your upper arms and make you look and feel fabulous!

Our top tip to you would be – Choose your mother-of-the-bride outfit as soon as possible, then let the groom’s mother know what you have picked. If possible, send her a swatch of the fabric or pictures so that she can look for a gown that will compliment yours.
