What day could be more important than the day you got married? The day your daughter gets married of course. As the mother of the bride, nothing says sophistication and elegance quite like a long dress, particularly one of our many styles with gorgeous beaded detailing, shimmery sequins, or other luxe embellishments. Choose the cut and style that best suits your body type and personal fashion sense, but with a long dress, you're sure to look amazing on your son or daughter's special day. Browse through our collection of long mother of the bride and mother of the groom dresses.
What color dress should the mother of the bride wear?
As the mother of the bride, you are given plenty of freedom when choosing a colour for your dress because you do not need to match anything or anyone in particular. Although, we would highly recommend checking in with the bride before making any final decisions.
One very important rule is to avoid your dress being the same colour as the wedding dress. Check in with the blushing bride months before the big day to ensure your outfit will not outshine hers. Then, continue to inquire about the wedding colours and the colour of the bridesmaids’ dresses. Whether or not the bride expects you to coordinate will help you in deciding what colour your mother of the bride dress will be.
Should the mother of the bride dress match the bridesmaids?
It is a real treat for the eyes when everyone in the wedding party is brilliantly coordinated. It is certainly not a must to match the colour of your dress with what the bridesmaids are wearing but it wouldn’t hurt to find out what colour story the bride has been inspired by. Feel free to ask the bride for ideas on how to best coordinate with this colour story and the bridesmaid’s dresses and then let the shopping begin.
Should the mother of the bride dress match the wedding colors?
Brides and their wedding planners develop a set of wedding colours to make sure the photos turn out looking positively delectable. You are the mother of the bride and you will adorn plenty of pages in the wedding photo album which will be enjoyed for generations to come.
While an expression of your personality and the flavour you bring to the family is important, it’s just as crucial to have a look at the wedding colours before buying your dress. Then you can go ahead and pick a colour that suits you while complimenting the wedding party just fine.
Should the mother of the bride dress be long or short?
There is nothing more elegant or sophisticated than a long dress so naturally, this is our top recommendation. Never fear a long dress feeling too formal, you are the mother of the bride and this is an especially important day in your life. Treat yourself to a full-length dress that sweeps with you around the room while greeting and entertaining guests.
If you still can’t decide between a long, midi-length, or short dress then take a moment to consider the season and venue of the wedding. The colder the temperature, the more appropriate a long dress would be. For a destination wedding in the heat of Hawaii, then a short dress would be the most appropriate and comfortable. The venue will tell you how formal the occasion will be and typically the more formal, the longer the dress.
