When looking for your bridal party’s outfits, the mother of the bride has a special selection of outfits to choose from. Surely your mom has her own style, but it is a great idea to help her out in the process of picking out her “mother of the bride” dress. Depending on your mom’s interests and knowledge of the newest trends, giving her some tips about the latest styles will be sure to make her selection process a lot easier!
A newer trend that I have been seeing on “mother of the bride” dresses are v-necklines. If your wedding has part of the ceremony or reception outdoors, your guests may get a little hot in the upcoming summer months. Your mother should also be nervous and excited for you on this wonderful day so v-necklines can make her feel less stuffed in her dress. V-necklines tend to look great on everyone, so have her try some of these on and see if she feels comfortable!
Another trend that works well on the hot summer days are lace sleeves. “Mother of the bride” gowns usually like to be not too revealing, and having sleeves on the dress really helps with this! Your mom might feel more at ease with these lightweight and stylish sleeves.
With your tips on new and trendy styles, your mom will be so thankful that you helped her receive so many compliments throughout the day!
