Since most of traditions have been improved to adjust to contemporary needs in modern weddings, the guests wouldn’t be surprised at all when the bride’s mother is wearing a matte-satin mermaid gown in black. Although of course, some practices still do remain as a kind of regard to the bride. And it would be better for the mother of the bride to have a fabulous fetching look rather than a provocative style.
A silk shantung fabric is an excellent choice for a classic mother who adores Martha Stewart or reveres Carolina Herrera. A fluid silk georgette dress in a cool almost sorbet colour will be perfect for a romantic mum who loves decorating French country sensibilities and prefers dresses with lace.
There are also mums whose style has evolved over the years that her outfits consist of trendy and contemporary styles. So for today’s mother of the bride dresses, mums can have wide choices from a floor-length silk charmeuse dress with distinct ruching to a dramatic, slim indigo dress with a draped neckline.
Definitely the bride should alone glow on her wedding day but bride’s mother can still look smashingly good by picking the proper colours and silhouettes that complement her style without stealing her daughter’s spotlight.
