What style for a dress for the mother of the bride ?
Whichever dress you choose, a long, formal ceremony dress or a more or less casual knee-length cocktail dress, the important thing is to feel comfortable and confident. Choose a dress model that respects your body type and that will hide those little flaws that make you feel more complex. For example, if you do not want to show off your arms, opt for a dress model with three-quarter sleeves in lace, cape or flared effect or simply cover your shoulders with a bolero, a stole or a jacket matching the dress. If the wedding is not very formal, opt for a knee-length dress instead. You still hesitate short or long dress? The midi dress is a nice compromise.

What color for a dress for the mother of the bride ?
Just like the style of the dress for the mother of the bride, the choice of color should be guided by the theme and more precisely by the designated palette. However, avoid wearing the same color as the bridesmaids. For example, if the wedding colors are blue, purple, gray, and the bridesmaids will be dressed in gray, you can opt for an outfit in the tone of blue and purple. White is the only color that is not recommended since it remains a color reserved for the bride. If you want light shades, go for pastel shades and neutrals, which are particularly suitable for the occasion. Apart from white, all other colors can be easily adopted in the outfit of the mother of the bride and groom. As you witness one of the happiest moments in your child’s life, you can afford a bright and cheerful color dress that will live up to the occasion. On the trendy side, dresses with metallic embellishments, pearl embroidery and sequins are a popular choice for modern mothers..
