How To Choose The Best Mother Of Bride Dress Color That Is Good For A Spring Wedding.

Author : Jacob Ohabim

When a wedding takes place, sometimes as much attention is placed on the outfit selection of the bride's mother and the groom's mother as the bride herself. That is because the focus of the day, while mainly on the bride and groom, is also on both of their immediate families. At weddings it is not uncommon for the mother of the bride to also have a special glow about her.

This guide is intended to help the mother's of the day pick appropriate gowns in colors for the weddings main season, springtime. Whether its a modest mother of the bride dresses or high fashion style you are looking for, this will help you.

Do not wear white
The biggest rule to follow is to never wear white. This may seem obvious, but believe it or not, some people just don't know. No woman should wear white to any wedding no matter what her relationship to the bride, because it is seen as attempting to compete with the bride. This also includes shades similar to white, like beige or cream. White dress accents are completely appropriate and can be very flattering.

Wear black?
Though some suggest it is not appropriate to wear black to the wedding of your child, the truth is that black is very flattering and slimming. One way to determine if this is appropriate in your case is to ask the bride herself to see if she minds. While other colors may seem more festive, black is universally flattering, and for this reason, may be the color to choose. Just be sure the dress still has a festive look and doesn't look too matronly or like something you would wear to a funeral

Bright colors for you
Springtime suggests pastels and bright colors to signify the beginning of new life in nature. Therefore, this is the perfect time of year to get away with a brighter tone that you may not feel comfortable with during other times of the year. You may also want to incorporate a springtime print, such as bright flowers, depending on what is appropriate for the style of the particular wedding. Other prints can be appropriate as well, as long as they do not clash with other dresses in the bridal party.

Other ideas
When picking colors for mother of bride and groom dresses, another thing to consider is the color used within the wedding itself. The mother does not want to clash with this color scheme.

Ask the Bride
The mother and bride of the groom may also want to verify the colors of the dresses for the bridal party. Picking a color too close to this shade is inappropriate, since the mother does not want to be mistaken for a member of the bridal party during any part of the night.

No matter what color you choose, make sure your dress is appropriate for the event. You want to be flattering and classy at the same time, because guests will spend almost as much time watching you as they will the new happy couple. If there is doubt, just make sure to consult with your bride and groom, and then you cannot make a mistake.
