Congratulations on the fabulous news of your daughter’s wedding! Not only is this is a big day for your daughter, but here at Compton House of Fashion, we know it’s a huge day for you too.
As mother of the bride, choosing the perfect outfit is a big decision and we’re here to help give you some advice on the etiquette rules you’ll need to bear in mind.
Firstly, allow yourself plenty of time to choose your outfit. Don’t make a last minute decision you’ll regret when looking back through the treasured wedding album. Traditionally, the mother of the bride should buy her dress first, then inform the mother of the groom so that their outfits don’t clash. It’s only fair to allow the mother of the groom plenty of time herself to choose her own outfit.
One of the main considerations is the colour of your outfit. One really important thing to remember is not to steal the lime light from your daughter on her special day. Avoid dresses in white, ivory or champagne colours.
Consult your daughter to find out whether she wants your outfit to blend in with the wedding party and bridesmaids, or if she’s happy for you to wear any colour as long as it doesn’t clash. It may be that you can choose a complementary colour or a colour that’s in the same family as the bridesmaids’ dresses.
At Compton House of Fashion we can help you choose a dress that best suits your figure and budget. The mother of the bride should always look elegant, wear something age appropriate and feel confident in what she is wearing.
Your duties as mother of the bride include giving your daughter support and advice and being a shoulder to lean on as her big day approaches. We’re here to help you make the most of enjoying this special time dedicated to you by selecting an outfit which will make you feel amazing, so that you can concentrate on your daughter and avoid any potential etiquette faux pas!
