Brides and grooms, pass this article on to your mother and future
mother-in-law. Moms, here is some practical advice for choosing your dress
for your child's wedding.
First, clothes for mothers of the bride are not just for mothers of the
bride. They are for mothers of the groom, too. Both sets of parents
are probably equally as stressed about what they are going to wear to such an
important event, so realize that you are not alone on your quest for the perfect
When choosing the clothes for mothers of the bride and groom, consider
Is this a formal wedding? If so, a formal dress is appropriate.
If not, you may be able to get away with a dress that is more casual. But,
be careful - if you have a flair for what is unique, this may not be the time to
show it off. Choose a dress you know your daughter or son would approve of
and not be embarrassed to have you seen in.
What colors are the wedding party wearing? You do not want to wear the
same color as the wedding party, but it would certainly be nice to wear a color

If you are the mother of the groom it is appropriate to wait until after the
mother of the bride has chosen her dress to choose yours. Still, you can't
wait forever, so if the mother of the bride is taking a long time and you know
exactly what dress you want to wear, you certainly can purchase the dress of
your dreams, but don't cut the tags off until after you find out what the mother
of the bride is wearing. The mother of the bride and groom can certainly
wear the same color as long as they are both okay with it, but they definitely
would not enjoy wearing the same dress!
Ask your daughter to go shopping with you to find the perfect dress.
She may have wonderful advice about what would look great with the wedding party
and on you. Plus, it might be a good chance for the bride to focus on
someone else for a bit.
I hope you find the perfect dress for your son or daughter's wedding.
Just remember though, it is not about the dress you are wearing, but about the
love and support you have given to your children over the years. This is their
day because of all you have given to them. Realize that in your heart and
it will be a perfect day - no matter what you are wearing!
