How to make the Mother of the Bride (and Groom)
feel special on the wedding day
The Mother of the Bride (and Groom) plays a big part in the wedding party, so it’s important that they feel special on the big day.
Mother of the bride outfits
Spending time shopping for a Wedding outfit is such a fun day out! Be sure to stop for lunch, or maybe even plan a special afternoon tea, and it goes without saying….don’t forget a glass of fizz or two! So what should the Mother of the Bride wear? Well there isn’t any set rules (well…perhaps white isn’t the best colour choice!) For us, it’s mostly about feeling comfortable on the day. Remember, it’s a long day, so if high heels, heavy makeup or even a hat just isn’t something that will make a mum comfortable then that’s totally fine.
We would recommend taking a look firstly on the high street, which offer some beautiful wedding outfits, whether it be a dress, trouser suit or something a little bit different like a wedding jumpsuit.
Here we’ve handpicked some Mother of bride outfit inspiration from Phase Eight and their new 2020 Wedding collection.
Also, don’t forget all of the wonderful local independent boutiques near you, that will offer both traditional and the more unusual Mother of the Bride style.
The best gifts for the best mums!
