If your son or daughter is planning a wedding, bets are that as a mother-of-the-bride/groom you are just as stressed as they are. Maybe you aren’t looking for caterers or venues, but we’re sure you are trying to find something to wear!
It’s a complicated task. One that can induce numerous tears and fears as you brace yourself to be just as indecisive as the bride herself. Torn between wanting to look amazing, but not wanting to upstage the bride, and finding something appropriate yet stunning is the hardest task known to man … or woman!
With all the choices and trends out there, it can be difficult to truly understand what works best for you. Long. Short. Lace. Tule. But fear not, Fairies, because with all the mother-of-the-bride/groom trends circulating, we have found the best ones to make you shine on this special day.
Pronovias have just released their 2018 line of Cocktail Wear that can effortlessly be transformed into gorgeous mother-of-the-bride/groom dresses that are simply perfect for any type of wedding.
You can shop Pronovias at WW Member Luv Bridal boutiques.
Pastels are all the rage for mother-of-the-bride/groom in 2018. These soft colours allow mothers to look beautiful and effortless while not drawing all the attention to one’s self … too much. These two gorgeous gowns will make any mother feel fantastic all-night long.
Don’t be afraid to wear a short dress! Show off those lovely legs and have heads turning. Short mother-of-the-bride/groom dresses are a great way to differentiate yourself from the bridal party, especially if they are all wearing long gowns. These two dresses accentuate all your best features while remaining classic and elegant.
Want to look effortlessly elegant and feminine? Then lace is the trend for you! These two beautiful dresses show how lace can be used in different ways in order to create the perfect mother-of-the-bride dress.
It’s common for mothers to want to wear a sleeved dress on the day of their child’s wedding. With so many different types of sleeves out there it can be hard to know which one suits you. While capped sleeves are beautiful, we prefer long or lace sleeves. These two dresses show just how classic and feminine sleeved dresses can be.
Beading and Embroideries
We love this trend! Beading and embroidery have the ability to give any mother-of-the-bride/groom a little something extra. Simple, yet sophisticated, this trend allows mothers to feel all kinds of glitz and glam in a modest way.
