Where to Shop for a Mother of the Bride Dress

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.

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.

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.

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.

OOTD: Wedding Guest Outfit

You don’t want to know how old this dress I am wearing is, you really don’t. It is older than Fashion and Style Police (going to be 4 in October, whoop whoop), and it is older than many other pieces in my wardrobe. I was pleasantly surprised to see I could still fit right into it. Quality speaks without saying a word, and that is why I like to spend that bit extra on my pieces so they can last for as long as I need them to. I also take good care of my clothes as well, and I guess the extra care adds to the lifetime of the pieces.

I wore this outfit some days ago. I have a wedding to attend and I needed to shop my closet for wedding worthy pieces to style, so these pieces came to mind. The dress is an oldie as you all know by now, but the navy blue fascinator is not. It was sent some days ago, and I am happy to say I will be wearing it to the wedding. It is my first ever fascinator and I adore it. I also found it super comfy, I always thought fascinators would be uncomfortable because they do look like a bit of work to have on your head all day, but I found this so light and easy to wear.

The black bolero jacket is another newbie. I got it some days ago for the wedding and I am crazy in love with it as well. I love the sleeves, silk material and the fact that it is so dressy.
