Mother Of The Bride Outfits – What Does Your Choice Of Colour Say About You?

With such a wide variety of mother of the bride outfits to choose from, it can be a hard choice when it comes to deciding what colour to go for. You want it to compliment the rest of the wedding party, and you might even take it one step further and match your wedding outfit to the colours of the flowers and seat covers!

But have you ever considered that the colour you choose for your loved ones big day might actually make people FEEL a certain way about you? Have you ever thought that the colour of your wedding outfit might portray certain emotions? Well, I imagine that most of you won’t have thought this far into it, but the fact is that certain colours do evoke specific emotions within us when we see them – and depending on what presence you want to have on the day, the colour of your mother of the bride or mother of the groom outfit could actually play a big part in how you feel about yourself and how others feel about you.

You might not know why you have a favourite colour, but it is a subconscious reflection of your personality and style.  Colours can influence moods and exude certain characteristics – so what does your choice of wedding outfit really say about you?

Black & White – Whilst it is thought to be bad luck to wear and entirely black or an entirely white outfit to a wedding (unless you are the bride of course!), a monochrome Mother of the Bride or Mother of the Groom dress combines the best of both colours and is bang on trend for 2013. The black in the outfit makes it look sexy and sophisticated, whilst the white suggests a purity and youthfulness.

Pink – Choosing a pink mother of the bride dress will make you appear very feminine and delicate. If you go for a pale, this will show off your softer and more sensitive nature. Choosing a bright pink demonstrates that you have a strong personality and know your own mind.

Green – Green is a very balanced colour, as it is a mixture of warm yellow and cool blue. The colour green is often thought as being very calming and tranquil. Lovers of this colour tend to be responsible, stable and principled so choosing a green wedding outfit is likely to portray a very refined image of you on the big day.

Blue – This colour has long been linked to royalty, and many of the wedding guests at the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton wore a variation of blue. With so many different shades of blue on the market, this colour can appear both soft and sweet or strong and bold depending on the colour you go for.

Purple – Choosing a purple mother of the bride or groom outfit will portray a very passionate and dignified persona on the big day. Purple is thought of as being a colour of wealth and luxury so is guaranteed to make you feel a million dollars on the special day.

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.
