Mother of the bride style etiquette 101: everything you need to know.
You may have questions like: What colour should the mother of the bride wear? Who picks the mother of the bride's outfit? And does the mother of the bride have to match the bridesmaid dresses? There are a few considerations to take into account, but when it comes to dressing for the big day, there aren't too many rules to acquire.
Dress The Part Firstly, choosing a mother of the bride or groom's dress should involve the bride or groom and their mother's approval. Matronly and conservative demands are a thing of the past since bridal attire is ever-evolving. The major no-no at a wedding is wearing white unless the bride and groom say otherwise, but no other colours are off limits. Both the bridesmaid dresses and the wedding colour scheme can influence the mother-of-the-bride outfit. But the mother of the bride or groom does not have to match the other bridesmaids.
What to wear to a summer wedding.
Choose breathable, lightweight fabrics for a summer wedding that will be forgiving if you end up outside in the heat on a hot, muggy day. While a wool-linen combination is lower in weight, a wool-silk blend is softer. Bright hues are traditionally linked with wedding gowns, but showy metallics such as gold and silver have recently gained popularity. Floral design, which goes nicely with earth tones like beige and light grey, is another popular choice for summer weddings.
Whatever you choose to wear for this celebration of love, wear it with pride.

The Pastel enthusiast.
Pastels for a wedding are not revolutionary, but they are long loved for a reason. The softer look is perfect for garden nuptials or weddings in warmer climes. More muted tones help create a high-end, timeless look while keeping relaxed and comfortable throughout the day's extended hours.
Option one: MARYLIN mocha.
Look to a floor-skimming design, the MARYLIN mocha backless maxi dress. This cowl-back gown is crafted from a statement-shimmering jersey fabric and has a figure-flattering, enchanted through the elegant cowl-back design, fishtail skirt, and feminine butterfly sleeves.
Option two: CLARA rose gold.
If you want a modern take on the classic mother-of-the-bride or groom dress, the CLARA Rose gold knot front twist dress will provide effortless glamour while contouring your curves. This dress is made from glitter fabric and creates the perfect hourglass silhouette through its clinch knot detail at the waist and long sleeves. CLARA's plunging neckline and enticing high slit will undoubtedly make you feel special on the day.
Option three: SIMA pink.
Expect all the compliments in the SIMA pink polka dot dress. It has a plunging round neckline, back, and fitted knee-length hourglass form. It is ethically produced in Britain with golden glitter polka dot accents on peachy pink velvet.
Though modern prints and contemporary cuts are exciting, a classic silhouette is sometimes the best option for a church wedding or an elegant ballroom affair. A timeless midi dress - particularly the soft tailored version we have picked- helps create a flattering outline but can be elevated by opting for a bolder colour.
Option one: SHAY gold.
Our exquisite mustard SHAY dress is composed of an environmentally friendly and sustainable silk-like material. SHAY is an adaptable garment that can be worn from day to night and from season to season. A midi length with long sleeves features handcrafted gold buttons. SHAY can be worn as a deep V-neck, conserved back or high neck, and backless to your upcoming wedding. Shay is also available in Red fabric.
Option two: AMBER mustard.
AMBER, our mustard vintage-inspired wrap dress with flouncy balloon sleeves in the style of the 1970s. This mustard maxi dress was handcrafted in the United Kingdom and features a tie waist, a plunging neckline, and side slits for a feminine and elegant silhouette.
The print connoisseur
If exuding understated elegance is your sartorial motivation, a printed fabric should be high on your agenda. The pattern has had a makeover, transitioning into elevated, tailored pieces that create a sleek silhouette and make a refreshing choice for post-ceremony celebrations.
Option one: SOPHIA.
The SOPHIA floral body-con midi dress features a plunging round neckline and back and a fitted knee-length hourglass shape. Showcasing a jersey fabric with a printed black floral pattern that is ethically created in the United Kingdom. The soft dark floral touch is beautiful for winter weddings.
Option two: NINA.
The NINA Jacquard skater dress is a desirable throwback to the 1960s fashioned of a distinctive Jacquard fabric woven from eco-friendly yarn. The sleeveless skater dress' velvet straps may be adjusted to your perfect fit. The velvet belt defines the bodice with underwired cups for additional support. Navy has always been a popular colour at weddings; it never goes out of style.
EDITORS CHOICE / Option three: VERDANT.
One of our must-have designs for each season is the VERDANT long-sleeve wrap dress. This wrap maxi dress is reminiscent of the '70s with its deep, earthy colours and blouson sleeves.
