Besides the wedding dress itself the next most important piece of clothing the Mother of the bride/groom will consider will be her own. Mothers have the hard task of dressing for an occasion, especially when many feel they are restricted to what they can and cannot wear. No one likes mutton dressed as lamb! Take a leaf out of my book and opt for a dress that drops to the knee, with or without sleeves. Another thing to consider when choosing your outfit is shoes. Flats are not really appropriate, unless of course a garden or beach wedding is on the cards. With so many labels making fabulous kitten and mid-heeled shoes there really is no excuse. Of course it's of utmost importance to be comfortable so choose wisely and make sure they have been broken in at home prior to the big day. Point number three, and one of the most important points, is to be well aware of the colour scheme of the wedding itself. No one likes a photo with a guest clashing horribly so do consdier the bride and groom when choosing your outfit. A lovely family photo from a wedding will last a lifetime and you don't want to cringe everytime you see it! I've gone over one of my favourite fashion website Net-A-Porter and have chosen a couple of styles that I think would make fabulous choices for a Mother of the bride/groom. They are trendy, knee length, detailed, ruched in all the right places and are pieces you will be able to wear again. Whether you are having something made or buying from a store be sure to make a choice that suits your taste and body shape and most of all makes you feel fabulous. Afterall, a daughter or sons wedding is one of the biggest days of your life!
