When your child gets married, it's one of the most magical and special days of your life. It's so rewarding to see them grow up and mature and begin a life with someone they deeply care about. And, there is nothing quite like the wedding! It's one of those rare occasions when everyone comes together and is able to celebrate your child.

You want to feel spectacular on the day by choosing the right mother of the bride dress or mother of the groom dress. Keep reading for everything you should know about picking the right gown for the wedding.

Dress Protocol

It can be difficult knowing how to proceed with buying a dress for your child's wedding. Typically, the mother of the groom will wait to purchase her dress after the mother of the bride. If you're the mother of the bride, it's common practice to let the mother of the groom know when you've bought your dress, and share the color and style of the dress.

What Colors to Avoid

The common rule is to avoid all shades of white for weddings, and this applies to the mother of the bride and the mother of the groom as well. Avoid white, ivory, and champagne colors. Some people will avoid purchasing a black dress as it can suggest mourning, but we think there are plenty of gorgeous black formal gowns that scream celebration!

Our general advice is to speak to the bride before purchasing any dress.

Additionally, some brides will ask that the mother of the bride matches her dress color to the bridesmaids. This is absolutely not a requirement and will depend on the bride's personal preferences.

What Styles are Most Popular

There are a few common styles for the mother of the bride dresses and mother of the groom dresses. Many women will choose a tea-length dress, which is a dress that ends in the mid-calf region. Alternatively, many mothers will choose a formal gown for the wedding, and perhaps a tea-length gown for the rehearsal dinner.

The style of dress you choose will depend on the wedding style and location. A rustic location will call for a more relaxed, semi-formal dress, while hotels, palaces, wineries, and other luxury wedding locations may call for more formal gowns.

Additionally, a dress should be chosen to flatter your figure. Both tea length and formal gowns are very flattering dress options for all body types, including plus size women.

As this is a very special occasion, you will want to choose a dress that stands out with embellishments or you can elevate a simple dress with beautiful jewelry pieces.

Looking at Royalty Fashion

The royal family is always a great source for fashion ideas for weddings. At the most recent wedding of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, Meghan's mom, Doria Ragland, had a stunning mother of the bride dress. She wore a light green ensemble of a dress that went below her knees, with a matching hat and jacket. The dress was flattering for her shape, her skin tone and hair color, and appropriate for the setting.

Choosing the Right Dress

In the end, there are a few simple things to consider when selecting your mother of the bride or mother of the groom dress. You want to make sure that the bride loves your dress, that the dress is appropriate, and that you feel comfortable and beautiful in your dress.
