Dresses For Mother Of The Bride For Important Wedding

Dresses For Mother Of The Bride should not stand out and draw attention away from the bride and especially stand out in the wedding photography. The mother's should avoid dresses in white, ivory, or champagne. They should also avoid dresses in black (suggests mourning) or red (considered flashy). Mother of the bride and groom dresses should be a little conservative. Recommended colors include beige, pastel shades, lavender, silver, burgundy, and blue. Another idea is to wear a dress slightly different but coordinated to the bridesmaids. For example, if the bridesmaids dresses are baby blue, the mother's of the bride could wear a darker blue and a navy blue. The mother's of the bride and groom's dresses should be comfortable and elegant. The style should be appropriate to their body types. The season of the wedding needs to be considered too. If it's a spring or summer wedding, lighter colors are more appropriate. A fall or winter wedding calls for a darker dress. Also consider the theme of the wedding, for example if the dress is renaissance, stick to the theme. The bride's and groom's moms should coordinate the length of the dress. Both of their hemlines should nearly be the same. If it's an evening gown style, both mom's dresses should hem near the floor, if they wear a shorter dress the hemlines should line just below the knee. Before deciding on a dress, know what type of dresses are best for your body type. If you still have a sexy figure, you can flaunt it a little but don't overdue it, you don't want to make the bride uncomfortable and upstage the bride. Find out how the bride feels about an outfit, about half the brides are concerned what the moms wear and about half the brides could care less. If the mom has large hips, an A-line skirt is flattering. If the mom has flabby arms, a long sleeve dress or jacket may be the way to go. If the mom has a big bust or problem stomach area, a longer blouse or jacket and a dress may look best.
