3 style tips for the mother of the bride

Having worked with countless couples in the lead up to their nuptials, we of all people recognise that a wedding takes a village. And no one plays more of a leading role than the Mother of the Bride. 

This being the case, it’s only fitting that you look the part when the big day does roll around. Here, we offer three style tips for the matriarch of the family to help you look your best.

Tradition isn't law

While Mothers of the Bride may have historically subscribed to the hat/gloves/and satiny cocktail gown stereotype, there’s absolutely no need for you to now. 

Instead, why not consider a made-to-measure suit. Customised to your body (and more importantly, your personal style), this is a formal look that still feels distinctly fresh and contemporary.

Our team of expert fitters can work with you to ensure that the garment creates a flattering silhouette while also accommodating any stylistic additions you would like. This will ensure that your ensemble is completely unique to you.

Complimentary over matching 

When it comes to the colour of your garment, it pays to take the wedding theme into consideration. However, this doesn’t mean you have to go for a ‘matching luggage’ look either. 

After all, there’s nothing worse than blending in with the table decorations. 

Instead, perhaps entertain a complimentary colour or one of the less prominent shades in the wedding palette. In doing so, you’ll stand out (in the best possible way) and avoid the risk of looking like you’re in bridal party camouflage. 

Room to move

Lastly (and perhaps most importantly), make sure you have room to move. The dance floor won’t start itself and just because it’s their big day doesn’t mean you don’t deserve to have fun too. 

One of the benefits of made-to-measure wedding suiting is that the suit is based on dozens of personalised measurements. This makes for not only a comfortable garment but one that’s designed for you to move in.
