Gone are the days when mothers of the bride only donned frumpy suits for that significant occasion. These days, mothers of the bride are more experimental. They embrace the latest styles and colors of the dresses they can wear on that momentous day for their daughters. Below are the top fashion trends for the mother of the bride gowns.
With so many styles of dresses to choose from these days, there are still three things to consider before buying that dress. These are formality, season and venue for the wedding. If the mother of the bride opts not to wear long sleeves, she can choose cap sleeves for her dress. These are shortened sleeves which gives some coverage, perfect for summer weddings. Sheer sleeves are also in. This style gives an impression of bare arms but still feels covered up. It is a great outfit for winter weddings.
Mothers of the brides look stylish despite being a little covered up. Tea-length dresses are also very fashionable these days. It is not as formal as long gowns but still gives a classy appearance. Flouncy skirts also provide a shorter, yet polished look. These modern styles are easy to move in and great for summer and casual weddings. Bateau necklines for mothers of the brides who want to show off their graceful necks are trendy these days as well.
When we talk about weddings, we always think of lace. Lace for the mother of the bride’s
dresses does not get outdated. They just get fused to the latest trends and styles be it full length
or tea-length dresses. If the occasion calls for casual attires, then tea-length dresses with floral fabrics can be a more classy choice than gowns.
Satin and beaded fabrics, just like lace, are classic materials to create a hip and classy look fit for the occasion.
It is typical that mothers of the brides to wear a shade that matches the wedding color scheme, or for the more traditional, creams and pastels. Up and coming trends do not follow these customs anymore.
There are many colors for mother of brides’ dresses to choose from, as long as the bride’s outfit is not upstaged. Champagne is the best bet in the color trend. It gives the same sparkle and shimmer as gold and silver, only in a warmer tone. It is also the best choice for mothers with a darker complexion. The taupe color is also an excellent choice because it complements any wedding theme just like the neutral and metallic colors.
Just as the wedding is important for the bride, it is also a special day for the mother of the
bride. Say goodbye to the overly conservative and ill-fitting attires for mothers and say hello to comfortable yet elegant outfits without outshining the bride. It is a huge day for her daughter. It is necessary that the mother feels confident and comfortable in her outfit for a picture-perfect look on this most memorable day.
