The mother of the bride is often so busy preparing the best wedding dress for her daughter that she seems to forget about her own dress for that special day in her daughter's life. This article will talk about the dresses that look decent and elegant on the mothers of the brides.
The best dresses for them are the
tea length dresses. These dresses are also known as in-between dresses and are appropriate for all body shapes. This is a dress which is about 3 to 4 inches above the ankles. The cocktail and the full length dresses are shorter than these dresses.
These tea length gowns are best for both formal and informal weddings and all types of other weddings too such as summer and spring weddings, beach or hill weddings, afternoon or evening weddings, and outdoor and indoor weddings. These fabulous dresses can be the perfect choice for the mothers of the brides. They fit well with all the different body shapes such as heavy figures as well as figures with trim and slim waistlines.
Important tips for the brides' mothers
The mother of the bride pays for her own dress unlike that of the bride, in most cases. Thus, she should pick her dress once the bridal dress and the dresses for the bridesmaids are done with. This way she will be relaxed and will have a clear picture about her budget for the dress.
It is a custom that the mother of the bride and mother of the bridegroom are in complimentary dresses so it is better to confirm about the length that the mother of the bridegroom will be comfortable in. The length of the dresses should be the same while the colors should never clash as they would not come up good in the pictures - - make sure this has been fixed before you buy your dress.
Never choose white or ivory as it is for the bride. Even avoid black as it is associated with mourning and grief. Eye catching colors which are very bright should also be avoided since they would least help you to look decent and sophisticated. Go for shades like pink, peach, lilac and so on. Cleo D. Pless
