2. Colour Coordinate

Be sure to ask your daughter about your Mother of the Bride fashion and also ask her what the bridesmaids will be wearing.

Traditional colours for the mother of the bride include pastels and neutral tones, though other colours are becoming increasingly popular. Often, the bride-to-be likes to see her parents and future in-laws working together to decide on outfits that complement one another, which is a sign of a harmonious family unit.  This sense of coordinating outfits ensures that the bride will be surrounded by a wedding party who have endeavoured to make her the star of the show.

3. Shopping timeline 

Three months  before the wedding to order your Mother of the Bride dress is normally sufficient enough time. This timeline gives you  enough time to both understand the final wedding designs and have plenty of time for any alterations required before the wedding.  This timeline also applies to the Mother of the Groom.

4. Accessories

Accessories provide opportunity to inject a little of your personality back into the outfit, with delicate, pretty jewellery or a bright, statement hat. Its important to remember too many accessories or statement pieces can just feel cluttered, simplicity is the key to class. Here at Nicola Ross we have lots of accessories available in store to go with your outfits
