Dresses for Mother of the Bride & Mother of the Groom in 2020

Finding a mother of the bride or groom dress that fits your personal style and makes you feel beautiful adds to the special feeling and memory associated with your son or daughter’s big day. On this day, it is important to celebrate yourself, and your family, by looking and feeling your best. The spotlight may be on your child, but their wedding day is sure to be equally as memorable for you, Mom.

If you’re a mother of the bride/groom celebrating this momentous occasion, Isa Fabrics has the perfect fabrics to make a dress for you. We can custom-make a Mother of the Bride or Mother of the Groom dress just as extraordinary as this day in your son or daughter’s life.

Mother of the Bride and Mother of the Groom Dresses

Gone are the days when a wedding was merely about the bride and the groom. Now, the mother of the bride should also look equally beautiful as you stand beside the wonderful man or woman you’ve raised.

Age is just a number and style cannot be measured on these grounds. Our mother of the bride/groom customers focus on the most flattering fit, fabric, and styles. We have a variety of suggestions to make a modern mother of the bride dress ranging from beautiful long gowns, couture evening gowns, tea-length dresses for shorter mothers, elegant plus size, sequin or beaded formal dresses, mermaid, jacket dresses, off the shoulder dresses, lace detail dresses for bridal moms, and more.

Some Tips To Get Started

  • Avoid clashing colors or overdressing. By coordinating the dresses together, the mother of the bride and mother of the groom can avoid picking clashing colors or one dressing far more or less casually than the other. Plus this will be a great bonding experience for this person who will show up in your life fairly regularly.
  • Ask for guidance on what to wear. It depends on the wedding style, but for an evening wedding, it’s safe to say a formal dress or a dress suit is the right idea. Mother of the bride and mother of the groom dresses are assumed to be “matronly,” but there are so many elegant, formal options that are both flattering and chic.
  • Ask for ideas on the preferred style, length, formality, and color so you have a direction, but understanding it’s also about something you’re comfortable in.
  • Be Considerate to the Engaged Couple. There’s no denying you have a right to look and feel amazing on the wedding day, but to avoid any miscommunications or conflict, kindly run it by the bride before making any final decisions.

The mother of the bride/groom should start dress shopping around the six-month mark to make the process stress-free, have time to have alterations made, and fittings scheduled, if necessary.

A Perfect Dress For The Big Day

You’ll cherish these memories for the rest of your life, but you’ll also cherish your dress. We offer a range of fits, with everything from petite to plus size dresses ideal for the mother of the bride.

What color does the Mother of groom wear?

Traditionally, the mother of the bride/groom’s dress should complement the wedding party’s colors, though not necessarily match. Wear a dress in color, style, and length that goes with, but does not exactly match, the mother of the groom’s dress and the bridesmaids’ dresses.

Do not wear white, off-white, or similar neutral shade that matches the bride’s dress. Also, wearing black could reflect mourning rather than happiness. We suggest not wearing black if you want to be on your new daughter/son in law’s good side.

Some of the most common colors seen on Moms are navy, gold, champagne, wine, and eggplant. You should feel confident standing beside even an ornate wedding dress by choosing something that reflects your personal style and is flattering, tasteful, and comfortable.
