Once upon a time, the only places that weddings were held were either in the local parish church or at a registry office, and they were a whole family affair. Now however, happy couples are opting to get married on the beaches of exotic countries, at football grounds and in some cases, people have even got married at a zoo or whilst standing on the wings of a plane. With the variation in wedding venues, some may fear that the traditional role of the mother of the bride is now obsolete, but this isn’t the case.
From experience, here at Compton House of Fashion we know that no matter how independent your little girl has become, when it comes to her big day, whether she’s opting for a church wedding, a wedding abroad or a more bizarre ceremony, the truth is she will still seek your advice on the important aspects.
Traditionally, as the bride and groom plan their wedding day, as the mother of the bride, you will act as a sounding board for all their ideas, from the colour scheme, the flowers to have in the bouquet and one of the most important elements of the wedding; the design and style of the wedding dress.
Once the big day arrives, and your little girl ‘now all grown up’ walks down the aisle looking like an angel in the wedding dress that you’ve helped pick, the guests will not be able to help but wonder where she gets her stunning looks from. Thankfully they won’t have to look far, as they’ll be able to see you looking like a princess yourself in one of our beautifully designed and fittingmother of the bride dresses complete with a hat or fascinator, available all year round here at Compton House of Fashion.
Although wedding venues and weddings are changing as couples look for something unique that will make their wedding stand out, the role of the mother of the bride will remain the same. As mothers, it’s our job to offer advice to the happy couple leading up to the big day, and to remain looking elegant, stunning and absolutely beautiful throughout the service itself.
