Aside from the person standing at the end of the aisle, one of the most important people in your wedding is your mother. For her, walking you down the aisle or having an essential role in the ceremony is a special moment, and you want her to look and feel her best. After shopping for your wedding dress and bridesmaid gowns, start shopping for the mother of the bride’s dress. Purchasing the gown later will ensure it fits best with the wedding style or theme, and color palette.

Ideally, the mother of the bride gown should complement the bride’s wedding colors, but they don’t have to match. Stick to sophisticated tones and always stay away from white, ivory or cream, so they don’t steal the spotlight from the wedding dress. Compromise on a style, if needed, as you want your mother to feel beautiful as she stands by you on your wedding day.
