0 Flares 0 Flares ×

As the mother of the groom, you are privy to some important information and events. Not only does this include direct details about the upcoming wedding of your son, but it also includes the mother/groom dance. This is a time where everyone will see you dance with your son while sharing this special moment. Naturally, you’ll want to look your best, but how do you go about finding the right mother of the groom dress? Beyond design and feel, here are several tips to keep in mind when searching for the right dress.

Talk to the bride

Sometimes what the bride says and what your son explains do not exactly pair up. What he might say is blue, the bride might say is turquoise. Due to this, when it comes to wedding colors and styles, make sure you talk with the bride. Find out the wedding colors and even the style of the bridesmaid’s dresses. This way, you know what the look and color is. Now, you don’t necessarily need to ask for the bride’s permission on your dress. However, you don’t want to create a harsh contrast with the color scheme or design (if it’s a simple wedding, don’t go super ornate and over the top). By talking with the bride ahead of time, you’ll have an easier time picking out a dress that fits.

Wear what you’re comfortable with

The best thing about the mother of the groom is you do not receive as much attention as the rest of the wedding party. With that being said, you should wear and show what you’re comfortable with. If the rest of the party is going with short dresses, but you are not comfortable with a shorter dress, don’t feel obliged to go short. Beyond the bride, you really do have more freedom in selecting the right dress, as long as it meets some basic color and design specifics.

Keep accessories simple

Some dresses are made for accessories. From the perfect necklace with your lower cut dress to bracelets with your sleepless gowns, there’s nothing wrong with accessories, just keep them simple. You don’t want to steal any of the bride’s thunder.
