In the movie, “The Mirror has Two Faces” the bride’s mother wore something different to upstage her daughter. The mother wanted to stand out so that everyone would know that she was an important person. Not all mothers are like that. However, not all of them would want to go unnoticed either. Here are a few tips to find the appropriate but stylish dress for your mother or mother-in-law.
Visit Shops Together
You can go dress shopping with your mother but it will be more interesting to invite your future mother in law too. This way you can spend time bonding. Mothers can share ideas on what they want to wear. You are also a part of the process by keeping their choices in check.
Consider the Theme
The first thing to consider when shopping for the mothers of the bride and groom is the theme of the wedding. Some weddings only use simple color accents while others have a strong theme depending on the venue. It is important to choose a dress that fits the theme but is not too loud. The color of the dress should be shades closer to white or the chosen hue.
Do Not Match the Bridesmaids
It can be tempting to choose a dress that is similar to what the wedding entourage would wear. Try to find a dress that considers the theme but also holds the design that fits the personality of your mother and mother in law. It does not have to look a bit like the bridesmaids’ dresses. Even though mothers understand it is your special day, it does not mean they have to match everyone else.
The Couple Knows Best
In most cases, mother would know best but this time it is different. Style and color aside, the decision lies on the bride and groom. Choose an elegant dress that fits the theme but also stands out and you can never go wrong.
