27 Tadashi Shoji Gorgeous Mother Of The Bride Dresses For Every Style And Season
As the mother of the bride, your role comes with big responsibilities. You’ve likely been by the bride’s side helping, planning, and lending sage advice along the way. So when it comes to securing the perfect mother of the bride dress, you deserve to find a style that celebrates you and your personal style.
While your look should complement the wedding color palette, the season, and the venue, today’s mother of the bride (and mother of the groom!) shouldn’t feel restricted to traditional mother of the bride dresses. In fact, mother of the bride dress etiquette has changed over the years, offering mothers the opportunity to truly showcase their personal style. Love allover sparkle and intricate beading? Endless options abound! Coveting shorter hemlines? We’ve got you covered! Searching for off-the-shoulder necklines or long sleeves? We’ve got those too!
No matter your style or whether you’ll be standing by the bride’s side at a black-tie wedding or intimate backyard nuptials, we’ve curated the best mother of the bride dresses with every, season body type, and budget in mind.
Searching for the perfect dress for the big day? We’ve answered four common questions about shopping for mother of the bride dresses.
- When should I start shopping for my mother of the bride outfit? To be on the safe side, we suggest that you start shopping for your dress six months before the wedding to allow for any shipping delays or alterations. If you’re in a pinch, many E-commerce sites like Net-a-Porter or Nordstrom offer rush shipping.
- What should I consider when shopping for my dress? It’s important to take into consideration the venue, the season, and your personal style. While your outfit should be season-appropriate and complement the wedding’s color palette, it’s also important to pick a silhouette and color that celebrates your body type and personal style.
- What colors should I avoid wearing? Unless specifically approved by the bride, a good rule of thumb is to avoid wearing white or any hue that might resemble the bride’s wedding dress.
- Do I have to run my dress by the bride? While your daughter will surely want you to feel your best in your dress, having a conversation with the bride before you start shopping can help set expectations and narrow down your options.
