Dresses For Mother of The Groom

Dresses For Mother of The Groom

Choosing The Mother Of The Groom Dresses :

#1. Don't pick the mother of the groom dresses that match in colors with the mother of the bride's dress. Some families find it tempting to buy dresses for both mother of the groom and the bride that have the same colors, but experience tells us that this idea is usually a very bad one. Ideally, you want to have the dresses match only on the level of their formality, but they should both be of different styles and different colors. Do consider how you will look in the photos - does your color go well with the bride's white dress, the bridesmaids dresses and the bride's mother dress.

#2. You should decide on the limits of open skin that is allowed for your attires. You do not want to put on something that would reveal too much of it as, after all, this is a formal party and a certain etiquette needs to be followed. Well, you certainly don't want to look boring and bland, too, and to avoid that just put on some pretty jewelry or accessories. As a tradition, mother of the bride dress should be a little bit more ornate than a mother of the groom dress, and neither of them should upstage the bride's dress, of course that would be embarrassing for the heroine.

#3. Always consult with the bride and the groom (and maybe with the bridesmaids). They will tell you their opinions and might resolve a few doubts that haunt your mind. For example, if you are unsure, whether it is proper to put on a pants suit - ask them and they will tell you as the level of formality is dictated by the heroine of the ceremony and her groom. Another doubt they can resolve, for example, is the question of whether you can dress in black or not. Many people think that black is not a proper color for a wedding ceremony, but lately more and more people have started to think otherwise.

Avoid looking too matronly, as well. This is a very common issue moms have, in fact, as usually, when the kids are getting married, the moms are already approaching their 40s or 50s, and looking matronly is one of the things that women of this age category would never appreciate. Pick something that looks elegant, does not come off too gaudy and is of the appropriate level of formality. The process of choosing the right dress can take a lot of time. You might stumble upon a dozen of options and this will make it hard for you to choose the right one. Consult with other people, especially the groom and the bride, and if they have time they can tell you which one looks the best.
