Navy Blue: The Hot New Colour For Spring/Summer Mother Of The Bride Dresses

Every season a new colour dominates the latest collections for Mother Of The Bride dresses and for the Spring/Summer collections we are seeing a lot of deep, navy blue creations hitting the boutiques this year.

Navy is quite an unusual choice for Mother Of The Bride, as it is traditional for the mothers’ to wear a bright, standalone colour or to match their outfits to the bridesmaid dresses – but this season (perhaps to be in keeping with the somewhat muted weather we are having!) the big name designers have chosen much more subtle and reserved blues and golds as their key shades for the Spring/Summer collection.

Deep, rich and dark blues are very cool colours, and would not necessarily be associated with a Spring/Summer wedding but there is a certain air of importance, confidence and authority connected to navy blue. Navy is a powerful colour, and designers such as Gina Baconi and Presen have used creams, golds and pewters to soften their latest designs to ensure that the dark blue doesn’t overwhelm the overall look and feel of their dresses.

These dark blue colours are certainly very striking and, although an unusual choice, these colours will suit many different skin types and colourings as they will not clash against pale skin and bright hair. The latest range of navy and deep blue Mother Of The Bride dresses definitely scream sophistication and are sure to make you stand out for all the right reasons on your loved ones big day. After all, the Mother Of The Bride and Groom are one of the most important people in any wedding and it is as important for you to wow at the ceremony as it is for the Bride and Groom.

Coco Fashion’s latest Spring/Summer collection is now in store and we have a fantastic range of Mother Of The Bride dresses from a great range of designers such as Condici, Linea Raffaelli and Mon Cheri.

5 Top Tips For Finding The Perfect Mother Of The Bride & Mother Of The Groom Dress

As the mother of the bride or the mother of the groom, your loved one’s wedding day is going to be a very special and memorable experience for you and you want to look your best for the big day – after all, you will be playing a very big part in their special day.

You may think that unlike the bridesmaids and the groomsmen, your outfit doesn’t really need to tie in with the overall theme of the wedding but you shouldn’t overlook how important your wedding outfit is as ensuring that what you wear on the big day not only looks stunning on you but is also co-ordinated with the bride and groom and in-keeping with the colour scheme of the wedding will really make a big difference on the day.

Here are some top tips to help you find the perfect mother of the bride or mother of the groom dress, which will really compliment the bride and groom on their big day.

  1. You will probably already know what the bride and bridesmaids will be wearing on the day, or at least have an idea of the colour scheme for the wedding, so bear this in mind when you are choosing your dress. For example, if the bridesmaids are in purple you might consider selecting a cream or gold dress which will really set off the bridesmaids and the brides dress in the wedding photos – choosing a bright blue dress instead may even clash with the purple and this could lead to some rather unflattering photos.
  2. Consider mirroring the bridesmaids’ dresses in terms of the style and cut of the dress you choose. Selecting a dress that is a similar length and style to the bridesmaids will really help to compliment you both in the pictures.
  3. As much as the colour of your dress should tie in with the colour scheme for the wedding, you still need to select a shade that suits your hair colour, eye colour and skin tone in order to really stand out and flatter yourself on the big day. For more information on what dress colours work best with your natural colouring, download Coco Fashion’s great free report on “How Best To Accessorise Your Wedding Outfit”.
  4. Although your wedding outfit still needs to suit you and your style, it is a good idea to consider what the bride would like to see you in. After all, it is her big day and she will probably have organised everything down to the very last detail – so do take her comments and suggestions into consideration when shopping for your dress together.
  5. As the Mother Of The Bride and the Mother Of The Groom you should talk to each other and consult about what colour and style you have chosen so that the pair of you don’t clash on the day. The dresses don’t have to be exactly the same colour or style, but just as you should take into account the length and cut of the bridesmaids’ dresses, you should also consider how you will complement each other.
