5 Style Tips for Shopping Mother of the Bride Dresses Online

1 - Consider Colour Scheme

While you don't need to match the wedding party on this special day, you do want to look similar. Think of all those wedding photos: if the wedding is in the summer and the bridal party is all in light, vibrant colours, then wearing a black velvet dress would not be an ideal choice. A gorgeous, flowing floral wrap dress, on the other hand, would look stunning.

Again, you do not have to match the colours, but the colours should be complimentary.

Common colour quandaries:

Q: Can the mother of the bride or groom wear dark colours, like navy, black and other dark colours? Is red acceptable?

A: Absolutely! Dark colours are timelessly elegant, so by all means, wear them. You can use your accessories to add a pop of colour to your look, or select a dress with a darker pattern.

As for whether or not red is acceptable, you bet it is. Red is the colour of love and perfectly suited for a wedding.

2 - Match the Mood

Is the wedding more informal or formal? While many dresses can transition from formal to informal and vice versa with some simple accessorising, that's not the case with all dresses, especially if the wedding is very formal.

When you're shopping for mother of groom or mother of the bride dresses online, keep in mind that a little bit of structure, like that provided by some ruching, a wrap dress or even a beautifully cut jacket, can amplify and polish your wedding day look.

Trust us: in our years of designing women’s clothing in sizes 8 - 24, we can promise you that structure is one of the simplest and most effective ways to create an incredibly flattering silhouette on any body.

Find the perfect style to suit your individual fit.

3 - The Right Length

Longer dresses often look more formal but there are other considerations when it comes to length that extend beyond formality. The most important consideration is your comfort level, so ask yourself: what am I comfortable wearing? Don't worry about what you think you're expected to wear and remember, it's also not just about what will look good in pictures: you have to wear this dress for the entire wedding, so comfort is paramount.

If you'll feel incredible in a fit and flare dress that falls just below your knees, wear one. If you'd rather wear a maxi dress that skims the floor, then that's your best bet.

The second consideration is one of wedding dress code, and if you want to stick to the code by the book, then you don't want your hemline to be shorter than knee length.

4 - Stunning Separates

When you're shopping mother of the bride dresses online, don't rule out your perfect wedding day look coming in the form of separates.

An equally exceptional wedding day outfit can be comprised of chic and feminine tailored pants or culottes or a skirt paired with a beautiful top and jacket.

Check out our stunning separates and mix and match to create a uniquely you, absolutely elegant look that's perfect for your child's wedding day.

5 - Accessories Are Everything

Accessories complete your look and allow you to add some more of your personality to your outfit. We love fascinators since they are a gorgeous and simple way to elevate your style.

A clutch, some choice jewellery and shoes are also brilliant ways to add polish and new dimension to your look. You don't need much, either. Just a few accessories can do the trick.
