Mother-of-the-Bride Dress Shopping Tips

Our Palm Beach bridal boutique has racks that are filled with the most stunningly beautiful mother of the bride (and groom) dresses in addition to all of the other exquisite wedding fashions that we offer. Mothers look forward to their child's wedding almost as much as the bride and groom, and they deserve a special gown for this momentous occasion.

Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches loves helping mothers find their perfect dress every bit as much as we enjoy finding each woman's dream wedding dress. There are a few things that you want to keep in mind while shopping so that you get exactly what you are looking for to wear on your child's big day. 

Start shopping early
The earlier you find that perfect gown for your child's wedding, the more time you will have to find the perfect accessories to go along with it. If your gown needs to be special ordered, you will want to find it early enough that there is plenty of time for it to arrive, with extra time for any necessary alterations. Strive to have your gown picked out at least 5 months before the wedding.  

Consult the bride
You will want to coordinate your look with the wedding colors. Even though this is your dress, it is your child's special day, so listen to their wishes when it comes to the gown that you will wear. They will have an opinion about the formality of the dress, and possibly other elements.  

Stay in touch with the other mother
You want to wear something that looks good standing next to the other mother at the wedding, and you definitely don't want to show up in the same dress. The best way to make this happen is to discuss your fashion choices with each other. The mother of the bride should get first choice when it comes to picking a dress, then the mother of the groom can take her cue from that gown. 

Stay true to your personal style
After listening to the bride and groom's wishes and consulting with the other mother, the final decision on the dress that you choose should stay true to your own personal style. Find a gown that makes you feel beautiful. 

That is not a difficult task when you shop at Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches. We feature Morilee's MGNY collection. They produce gorgeous gowns that are perfect for the mother of the bride or groom to wear. The dresses are made with rich fabrics, elaborate embroideries, and intricate beading. They also offer jackets, stoles, and capelets that coordinate perfectly for a timeless and classic look. 

Once your daughter (or future daughter-in-law) has found her amazing wedding dress, make your own appointment to come in and try on the most fabulous mother of the bride dresses in South Florida. We will make sure that you find something that works perfectly with your style, size, and shape. Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches has quite a bit of experience in this area, and we know how to bring out that inner beauty that your child has always loved about you.
