I love weddings. There is something about the event that gets me feeling all excited. The last wedding I attended was over a year ago in Ireland, and I still remember what I wore. It was my younger brother getting married, so I had to show up looking proper glam. It was a small intimate wedding, and I still enjoy looking at the pictures. The wedding season is almost here with spring finally making an appearance. So new wedding dresses and accessories are hitting the stores shortly. We have a friend’s wedding in the summer so I have started thinking of what to wear. The mother of the bride (Kathy) is a good friend of mine, and she has asked me to look around for a mother of the bride dress for her.
Kathy is quite conservative, so she would ideally prefer a knee-length dress or above the knee. She would also need her outfit to come with a matching bolero. With these information in mind, I went shopping online. I have found some amazing ideas for a mother of the bride dress. Here are a few of them that caught my eye.
John Charles Mother of the Bride Dress
This dress and bolero jacket is an amazing dress idea for a mother of the bride. I adore the subtle sparkle Jacquard fabric. It comes in such a beautiful shade and design.
The fact that this piece comes with a matching bolero and will sit below the knee would make it a hit with many conservative mothers.
Condici Cobalt Dress
This stunning Cobalt dress by Condici is such a lovely idea for a mother of the bride. I adore the shade of blue, it is one of my favourite colours. The design is also great. It is a sleeveless dress with a V neckline and sequin applique under the bustline.
The piece is knee-length which means it would be quite popular with many bride’s mothers. I like the matching silk bolero and elegant fascinator the model has on.
Ian Stuart Jardin Taffeta Tea Dress
I really like this Jardin Taffeta Tea Dress by Ian Stuart. The crossover V neckline is a great design. The beaded metallic lace detailing to the waist looks so beautiful.
Kathy would love this dress for sure. I think it would suit her fair skin tone and her figure beautifully.
Ispirato Printed Dress with Matching Jacket in Shard/Musk
This Printed Dress with Matching Jacket in Shard/Musk by Ispirato would be a popular piece for sure this wedding season. It is such a beautiful piece with a rounded neckline with beaded detailing and semi-capped sleeves.
I see Kathy loving this outfit as well. It will sit below the knee, and the bolero jacket has a high collar and 3/4 length sleeves, which I know she would love.
Ronald Joyce 50’s Style Tea Dress and Jacket
I saved the best for last with this 50’s Style Tea Dress and Jacket by Ronald Joyce. This is hands down my favourite dress from this list. I wonder if Kathy would agree with me.
The shade of blue is beautiful, and so is the print and the fitted bodice. The length will sit below the knee, which is great. The matching jacket has a shawl collar and 3/4 length sleeves. I think it would make a stylish mother of the day dress.

Thanks for stopping by.
Wow! These are all beautiful styles. Sadly if I were the mother of the bride, these would not look good on me. They are all for tall, slender women and I am just the opposite. 🙁
Yes they are lovely styles. I think they would suit different shapes.
Ooh I love the third one. Really beautiful dresses!
I love it too.
OMG that blue 50’s dress stole the show!!! What a stunning outfit. Almost doll like. Don’t think it’s for the bride’s mom though because she will steal the show ha ha
Yea she may steal the show in that dress 😂
I love the Condici Cobalt dress. I think it’s very chic and elegant. It will look good on any moms.
These dresses are incredible. I feel like it’s so difficult as a mother of the bride to find a dress that makes you look fabulous (& not old!) these dresses definitely be perfect for a mother of the bride.
Yes they will be. Thanks.
Really beautiful dresses. Love the different styles and patterns.
I do too. Thanks Renee.
Love the first dress style! Reminds me of those fashionable women from the 1930’s. Oh, well.. I lovea bit of retro 🙂
Ah nuce. Glad you love the first dress.
Really lovely dress i gotta say. Good combination of style and colours too.
dresses are too beautiful <3
