Help Mom Look Her Very Best With These Mother-of-the-Bride Outfit Trends!

In all the excitement of finding the perfect wedding dress for yourself, don’t forget to help your mom shop for a flattering ensemble for herself! It may be your time to shine, but your mother should also feel proud and beautiful beside you. Just as we see popular trends for wedding gowns, there are some top looks for mother-of-the-bride dresses as well. Here are a few of our favorite trends for you and your mom to try out:

Champagne Tones:

The light amber shade of champagne is often a perfect choice for mother-of-the-bride outfits. The warm and bubbly effervescence of this hue will add a golden glow to mom’s complexion that will leave her looking fabulous! The best thing about this color is that it is appropriate during any season and will mesh well with any wedding color. Champagne gowns are versatile and gorgeous, plus they also look amazing in pictures, especially in contrast to the bride’s white gown!

Lace:

Even years later, current wedding fashion is still feeling the effects of the royal wedding. Kate Middleton’s beautiful lace gown has made lace irresistibly popular for brides and their bridesmaids. Mothers-of-the-bride can also experience this romantic return to timeless lace. Your mom can go all out with a full long-sleeved lace gown like Kate’s, or she can opt for something more understated with simple lace detailing.

Short & Sophisticated:

Plenty of moms are stepping out in casual, short gowns dressed up with hair pieces, hats, and brooches to add a bit of glam to the outfit. Depending on how it is dressed up, a short modern dress can look just as feminine and stunning as a long formal ballgown!

Touchable Texture:

Mother-of-the-bride outfits often feature crisp lines contrasted with beautiful textures. The look is clean and elegant and so very flattering! Texture is a small detail that goes a long way toward creating a romantic and detailed look. If your mother is looking to flaunt a bit of texture on your wedding day, consider outfits that feature tiered skirts, flattering pleating, or even some sparkling sequins or beading. You can also create texture for an otherwise plain gown by adding a textured bolero!

Illusion Coverage:

While moms certainly know how to rock a one-shoulder or strapless gown, coverage is in style. However, it’s not the typical button-up coverage you may be thinking of. Sheer coverage and illusion necklines are the hot trend right now. Think sheer capes draping delicately over the whole outfit, sheer sleeves fluttering in the breeze, and low necklines tempered by tasteful gatherings of tulle. These details provide just enough coverage, while the sheer element creates a whimsical and mysterious feel. Sheer coverage is especially perfect for the upcoming fall and winter seasons when moms will be looking for warmer outfit options.
