Selecting the perfect gown as the mother of the bride is as an enduring process as it is for the sister, maybe even more tiring. After all this is a big day, your daughter is getting married to the man of her dreams and there will be lots of photo opportunities to commemorate this very special day. However, that doesn’t mean you have to outdo yourself and go over the top trying to prove something, in fact in this specific situation it’s important to note that elegance is everything. Therefore to avoid any Monster In Law moments circa Jennifer Lopez and Jane Fonda we’ve compiled a few helpful tips to consider when picking the outfit for your daughter's wedding. 

Who Chooses It 

Although in the past it was chosen by the bride as a way to ensure it’s a conservative clothing choice and is deemed appropriate for both the mother and grandmother of the bride, now traditions slightly evolve and change. Just like the selection of the bridal gown is a collaborative effort that includes the entire bridal party and the mother, sister, and grandmother; the selection of their gowns also has to carry the input of the bride as well. This is because beyond it being appropriate, above all else, it should be comfortable and flattering. It’s also important to do this to get a feel on what the bride would prefer regarding color and style before purchasing any garments.

What Colours Can I Wear 

As the mother of the bride, there is no specific color story to stick too, but there are general options and consensus to consider when selecting your ideal wedding outfit for the big day. Usually, it’s recommended to stay away from white, ivory, or champagne colors as to not take away from the brides general attention. However as time goes by that recommendation begins to wilt away because of the rising trend of all white bridal parties, which of course means that the mother, sister, and entire bridal party get to match with the bride and take amazing pictures together. Although the usual rule of thumb is to run the colors by the bride to make sure everything matches and then go ahead and get what you please. 

What If I Want To Match With The Grooms Mother? 

A creative and out of the box idea that would prove to be ideal in the pictures matching with the mother of the groom calls for cross family coordination. Although of course picking the colors that compliment both might prove to be challenging, it’s an ideal way to consider having a fun creative twist to the bridal party that pays homage to the two ladies that made this happen.
