Elegant Mother Of The Bride Dresses

Scouring a mother of the bride dress for your daughter’s wedding day is not always an easy gig. There is a fine line between styles that are contemporary and youthful and styles that are timeless and traditional. You want a dress that has a classic essence without looking frumpy, and a cut that is spirited but doesn’t verge on the inappropriate side. The perfect style is one that combines these elements and creates an elegant look for your big day. Elegance is defined by class and sophistication; elegant dresses are those which feel ever so classic and those which remain forever pieces.

Even if you have an elegant dress in mind for the affair, it is important to ensure that you also follow the wedding dress code as advised on the invitation. As well as this, it is equally as important to ensure that the colour and cut of your dress compliments the bridal party. You could be after an elegant midi dress for a beach wedding or an elegant full length gown for a black tie wedding. If the bridal party is in sky blue dresses, you could be after an elegant navy dress for the wedding day.


Beautiful Beading

Beaded dresses are perfectly elegant and sophisticated options for a mother of the bride look. A gown that dazzles with sequinned spots and perfect petals will never age and will be your forever companion. Opt for a hand beaded dress that has a modern silhouette so that you can combine the elements which create the perfect combination of elegance. Some earrings and a cute clutch also never went astray. 


Modern Midi Dresses

Midi dresses are another great option for a mother of the bride dress. Midi dresses will forever be chic and they hit your leg at the exactly right spot, perfectly between knee length and before becoming too long and turning into a full-length gown. This makes them the perfect attire for beach weddings, garden weddings and a that little ol’ church wedding.


Classic Cocktail Dresses

When the dress code is cocktail you wear a cocktail dress. Of course cocktail dresses can still be elegant, the short knee length style of them doesn’t mean that they are inappropriate for a wedding. Cocktail dresses are usually preferred for a casual style wedding or an outdoor wedding. If you are attending a church wedding or would prefer to cover your arms then you can pair you dress with a chic jacket or bolero. Choose a cocktail dress that will compliment your body shape. This can include an a line dress or a wrap dress or if you are an hourglass shape, you may prefer a tight fitted dress that skims your body. A midi dress also constitutes as a cocktail dress in our books.
