Is your daughter getting married? What about your son? Maybe it’s even your granddaughter or grandson! No matter the occasion, we have all the perfect Mother of the Bride dresses for you. With so many options, it’s often hard to choose the best dress for you. Here are some tips for picking a dress that will make you look great all night long.
Keep in mind the color scheme of the wedding. You definitely don’t want to wear bright red if the color happens to be bright yellow. You’ll clash and it won’t be appropriate. Neutral colors such as black, grey, navy blue, champagne, etc. are classy and will match whatever the wedding theme may be. If you are unsure, don’t be afraid to ask the bride or groom their opinion.
Both short and long mother of the bride dresses are beautiful and appropriate for the occasion. However, if you are on the shorter side, a shorter dress would most likely look better and compliment your figure better. But, if the bride, bridesmaids, and all the other women in the wedding are wearing long dresses, it is most likely better to stick with that so you don’t stick out like a sore thumb.
Ordering a dress online is always the best way to get the best price and best selection. If you are unsure of your size even after looking at a size chart, it’s not a bad idea to just order two. One will most likely fit and although having to return one is inconvenient, you are already saving money since you shopped online so it will be worth it in the end.
If you already purchased shoes, keep that in mind while picking out a dress. Although the aqua dress you found online is stunning, it may not match your red shoes. If you haven’t picked out shoes yet, go for a nude, black, or white shoe. Those colors will match any dress and keep the attention on the bride.
Jewelry always adds something to an outfit. While picking out your dress, think about what you may want to accessorize it with. If you pick a dress with a lot of beading, you may not need a necklace. Bracelets look nice with almost any dress too!
Most importantly, have a great time at the wedding celebrating your loved one. Take tons of photos to remember the moments forever!
