A wedding is all about the bride and groom, but it’s not just an event for two people. Instead, a wedding celebrates the joining of two families.

There is a lot of fun and work involved in planning a wedding with your daughter, and it’s important to find the right dress for your role as mother of the bride. Whether you love dress shopping or you’re more comfortable in casual attire, you can locate the perfect outfit by keeping these tips in mind.

Shop Early
If possible, start looking for your dress several months before the ceremony. Finding the right gown takes some time, and you don’t want to feel rushed. Our new store in New Market has a fantastic range of Mother Of The Bride dresses and plenty of fitting rooms to try the dresses on.

Starting early also ensures you will have plenty of time for alterations if they are necessary, and you can shop for your shoes, jewelry and other accessories at a leisurely pace once you’ve found the perfect

Follow the Brides Lead.
Even if you’re already dreaming about the perfect dress, don’t forget to follow the bride’s lead. You don’t have to match the wedding party exactly, but you want the style and color of your dress to fit with the other clothing selections that your daughter has chosen.

It’s also polite to let the mother of the groom know when you’ve chosen your dress. This will help her find a beautiful dress that will not clash with everyone else.
Your dresses don’t need to compete with each other. Instead, work on finding complementary gowns that add to the total beauty of the event.

Try Something New
Part of the fun of shopping for a special occasion dress is trying new things. You are probably most comfortable with a few specific dress styles, but don’t limit yourself to these during the shopping in most cases, it’s best to stay away from ivory, white or black dresses. The former colors are reserved
for the bride, while black can suggest mourning instead of a celebration. Depending on the color scheme of the wedding, navy, deep brown, jewel tones or platinum are all excellent choices.

A mother of the bride dress doesn’t need to look frumpy or matronly. Instead, today’s mothers can choose from a variety of gorgeous gowns from top designers. Whether you need a floor-length gown for a formal evening ceremony or a simple sheath for a casual wedding on the beach, try on a variety of gowns to get an idea of what works best for your body.

Stay Comfortable
Your daughter’s wedding day will be wonderful, but it’s also going to be very busy and probably a bit stressful at times. Because of this, it’s important to find a dress that allows you to be comfortable and move around freely. Steer clear of anything overly form-fitting, and avoid shoes that hurt your feet, regardless of how beautiful they look.

Whether you’re helping your daughter into her wedding gown or making last minute tweaks to the reception décor, the right dress will allow you to do everything you need to do while still feeling comfortable

Stress levels
Shopping for a mother of the bride dress doesn’t have to be a tedious task when you make it an enjoyable part of the wedding planning process. If possible, shop alongside your daughter so you can enjoy some quality time together while crossing items off the wedding to-do list.
