With the debut of our Mother of the Bride Guide e-book and Mother’s Day this Sunday (cue the confetti!), we’re indulging our soft spot for mamas this week!
My wedding colors were black and white with a few light pink accents, so when it came to dressing our mamas, Brandon and I had a bit of a challenge! My own mama opted to wear a black dress… though not without a touch of worry over whether people would think she was “mourning” our wedding. Ha! A hilarious question if you know how much my mama adores my husband!
My soon-to-be MIL didn’t want to match her, but clearly could not choose white (could you ever imagine?!), so she opted for light pink. Since we had a black tie wedding in December, finding her dress proved to be such a challenge that she actually had it made by her seamstress!
Most mamas want to please their daughters and help them feel as beautiful as possible on their wedding day, but I know how hard it can be for mothers of the bride (and groom, for that matter!) to find flattering, coordinating, and reasonably-priced dresses.
Today, I’m sharing some lovely MOB’s who did it right as well as a few dresses on the market now that fit the bill of stylish, sophisticated, and relatively budget-friendly! ;) For more tips for wedding planning with your mama, be sure to pick up our Mother of the Bride Guide e-book today!
Our sweet mamas deserve to feel beautiful on our wedding days, too, so I’m excited to share a few favorites that would be a perfect fit (pun intended)! Note that many of the models chosen by the manufacturers are clearly younger than a typical mother of the bride, but I’m confident each of these options would look great on a woman of any age!
