For the mother of the bride, and not forgetting the mother of the groom, your child’s wedding is the best excuse for a special new outfit. Here are some of the latest mother of the bride dresses, radiating elegance, in this season’s most sophisticated styles. Which colour are you?
Mother of the Bride Dresses in Blue
No matter what the chosen theme of the wedding might be, it’s still important to some brides for there to be a ‘something blue’. Blues come in so many different shades, from palest baby blue and pastel powder blue to bright royal blue and deep French navy. Take the wedding colour scheme as your foundation and find a shade that suits you. If you have blue eyes or cool colouring then most blues will suit your complexion but if you’re brown eyed with warmer skin tones then consider going for a warmer shade of cream to wear with a striking or smart shade of navy. This is our pick of the most stylish mother of the bride dresses in blue for this year.
Shades of Red
Red dresses make such a bold statement so wear red if you want to stand out, and especially if the wedding colour scheme is based around red shades. Striking reds are perfect for summer or destination weddings, and can add a splash of colour to the day. Red shades suit those with warmer skin tones, generally brown eyed and freckly. If you have cooler colouring but want to wear red try a scarlet red as opposed to an orange based shade. Here are the most stunning mother of the bride dresses in red.
Shades of Grey
You might not instantly associate the colour of grey with a wedding, but it’s actually the perfect neutral that complements most colours, in the right shade. Wearing grey will ensure your outfit doesn’t clash with anyone else’s and you could add a little sparkle with light-catching jewellery or crystal accessories. If you feel grey makes you look a little ‘washed out’, team it with a brighter colour around your face like an ivory blouse, or for a real statement, a yellow or pink hat.
Shades of Pink
Nothing says “love” like the soft, romantic shades of pink. This colour will suit a variety of wedding themes – vintage in particular. Most soft pastel shades will complement a vintage themed wedding beautifully, and pink should be the first choice for the mother of the bride.
