Helping your daughter organize and make important decisions for her wedding is one of the last things you can do for your daughter before she starts her own family and new life. However, getting caught up with all the wedding planning should not let you forget that you also have to prepare for the special day of your daughter and that is choosing the right mother of the bride outfits for you. Yes, it is not your wedding day but you should also prepare especially your outfit for the wedding because you are the mother of the bride.
To determine the right mother of the bride outfits, you should first determine if you will follow with the wedding’s theme or you can choose a color and design different from it. Most brides want the outfits for the whole entourage to follow with the theme but you are not obliged to follow the theme since you are not just part of the entourage, you are the bride’s mother. Ask your daughter if you can wear mother of the bride outfits not similar to the wedding theme. If she says yes, then you have lots of colors, designs and styles to choose.
Being stylish on your daughter’s wedding day is definitely not a sin but you should also make sure to avoid overdressing to the point that you want to take the limelight from your daughter’s special day. Avoid mother of the bride outfits in white, off-white or cream color since this is will coincide with the bride’s wedding gown and you want to avoid that. You want to give the center of attention to your daughter so make sure to be stylish the right way.
You should also avoid the mother of the bride outfits that look too young for your age or will make you look older than your age. Finding the right dress for the wedding can be quite tricky but if you lend enough time in finding the right dress, then you can definitely find a good one that will surely match your needs and preference. Make sure to look for prospective designs earlier, preferably 1 -2 months before the wedding or right after your daughter’s wedding gown and bridesmaids’ gown were chosen and finished.
Look for the design of the outfit that will match your body shape. If you not that confident to wear fit dresses, you can also wear some shape-wear to sculpt your figure and hide some imperfections on your body. Choose also the color that will look good on your skin complexion.
