A Style That Suits You

The most important rule to stick to when choosing a mother of the bride/groom outfit is find a style that suits and flatters you. The right style will depend on your body type (click here to see what style will suit which body type).

Underwear Is Key

If you’ve spent ages looking online and thinking “all these models are too young to be mothers and no one is that slim!” (yes those were thoughts I had during my research). Well the secret is good underwear. You’ll still need to find an outfit that suits you but the right underwear will keep everything in place and can help show of your curves.

Wear a bra that perfectly fits (and is comfortable!), it may be worth going to get properly measured for one. If your outfit is figure hugging you could always wear “pull in” knickers for a bit of insurance and also look for no VPL.

Consider The Time Of Year

For a Summer wedding you’ll most likely be ok with wearing just a dress with no cover up. Spring can be hit or miss so maybe look for a matching jacket or wrap that’s still light. For an Autumn/Winter wedding you’ll want a bit of added warmth. There are plenty of designers that create matching dresses and coats that look stunning.

Think About The Wedding Colours

Your outfit doesn’t need to be the exact same colour as the bridesmaid’s dresses or the flowers. If the main colour theme is blue with a lot of pale blues, maybe contrast with a navy colour instead. Or if the main colour is blush pink, find an outfit that has just a hint of blush pink. Or you could contrast your colours. For example, if pale green is the running colour find a cream outfit that will compliment the colours but still be a contrast.

You Don’t Have To Wear A Dress

If you’re not comfortable wearing dresses or want to try something different then look for a trouser top combo or a jumpsuit.

A Formal Wedding

For a formal wedding a long length gown may be more appropriate than a short dress.

If you intend on wearing a hat or a fascinator, match the colour of your outfit to your headpiece. You can also choose your accessories based on a colour in the dress if you are wearing a patterned outfit.
