It’s the big day, and you want it to be perfect for the bride and groom, right down to the smallest detail. That means paying close attention to your own beauty and style heading into the big day, and staying mindful of just what your role entails — to support the bride and groom, and help make the ceremony, wedding photos, day and memory perfect. So be mindful of the pitfalls, and avoid these three common mistakes:

Failure to coordinate

Mother of the bride dresses and mother of the groom dresses don’t need to match one another, nor anyone else at the wedding, necessarily — but some degree of coordination to avoid unfortunate results is important. Traditionally, once the mother of the bride has determined what she is wearing, she should communicate with the mother of the groom to ensure proper outcomes, but you can also work together from the start. Talk to the bride, talk to the bridesmaids, and talk to one another, and everyone will look better for it.

Going too glamorous

Don’t forget whose day it is, in your endeavor to look your best. You don’t need to be the sexiest woman at the wedding, nor the most impressive — and going for ‘most fashionable’ can easily backfire, when someone pulls out wedding photos down the line and you’re the only one whose outfit isn’t timeless.

Going too dowdy

Don’t think that you have to play down your fashion or beauty to make everyone else look better, either. Too often, the mothers dress down to make the bride look better, and ultimately end up looking under-dressed. Your goal should be to own your role as mother of the bride or mother of the groom, and dress to the utmost limit of that role. Don’t be afraid to look good — your beauty will only add to the bride’s glamour, as long as you don’t go for a flashy appearance.

Keep these tips in mind, and you can be certain your mother of the bride or mother of the groom dress will look spectacular, and help make the most of the day.
