Style and Color Tips for a Mother of a Bride Dress

As the mother of the bride or groom, you've earned an honored place in the wedding party and festivities, so of course you hope to look elegant and graceful. Moreover, the mother of the bride should look as radiant as her daughter as she watches over on her wedding day.
Since everyone has their own preferences, and any color can really be worn if the bride and moms agree on it, that is to say, most mothers would advise against these hues: if you choose a color of white or ivory, please make sure it does not compete with the bride; if black, don’t make it appear in mourning; if red, too flashy one is not a best choice.

When you have more room to maneuver in color, the formality of your gown should match the formality of the rest of the wedding party and the event. If it is an evening wedding and the bride is dressed in floor-length ball gown, it’s probably best to avoid a short hemline in a casual fabric and vice versa. If you're leaning towards strapless, there are countless elegant options, and if you'd just be more comfortable with some arm coverage, consider a cap sleeve, three-quarter sleeve or something with a matching jacket, shrug or wrap.

In short, the mother of the bride should find a dress that’s flattering but also fits the wedding style. Whether knee-skimming or swirling about your ankles, the length of the hostess’ dress that reflects the bride’s wishes, the formality of the ceremony and reception will be the right one.
