15 Dec 2018 Posted by trubridal in Mother of Bride

With it being Mother’s Day this weekend, we thought today we’d shine a light on the women that put the love and sparkle into our lives long before the other half came along! For many moms, helping their daughter or son to plan the day of their dreams is an incredibly special time but one that’s somewhat overshadowed by stressing about what she’s going to wear on the day too! And of course, the Mother of the Bride or Groom is allowed to have her little freak out – it’s a day when family, friends and neighbours will see her at her best and no doubt she’ll have plenty of photos scattered around the house staring back at her for years to come!

32 Mother of the Bride Dresses for Every Type of Mom

25 May 2018 Posted by trubridal in Mother of Bride

When it comes to Mother of the Bride dresses, one type does not fit all! If your mom is anything like my mom, she’s WAY more stylish than me, and is actually willing to take more fashion risks than I am (hence the gorgeous, one-shoulder animal print Cavalli dress she wore to my wedding. But while she might be fashion forward, there are a lot of moms out there who prefer something a bit more demure. Which is why when I go searching for Mother of the Bride dresses for the site, I try to find a dress for not only every body type, but for every fashion type.

The Mother of the Bride dresses in the gallery above offer a little something for every mom out there. Whether they’re more conservative or a little more edgy, they are all gorgeous and would look amazing on your mom or even work great as mother of the groom dresses.

14 Best-dressed Mothers of the Bride From Real Weddings

19 Feb 2018 Posted by trubridal in Mother of Bride

Struggling to find Mother of the Bride outfit ideas for your big day? You’ve come to right place! We’ve scoured our best-dressed guests from real weddings to find the best-dressed mothers-of-the-bride – and groom – to bring you, and her, some much-needed inspiration!

14 Best-dressed Mothers of the Bride From Real Weddings!

You might be planning a spring or summer wedding but the evening will bring a chill, so remember to wear something with extra coverage. Pashminas work well but we prefer stylish jackets that are nipped in at the waist. Three quarter length sleeves make the whole look less bulky, too.

“Think of the venue while selecting your outfit, especially if some of the celebrations are taking place outdoors. If you are taking your jacket off in the evening, you might want to consider having a lace bolero or a shrug, which will give you two looks in one, while still giving you arm coverage,” Ian Stuart suggests.

Should you wear a hat or fascinator as Mother of the Bride or groom?

We say, absolutely! Not only does it help set you apart from the other guests, it’s also one of the only formal occasions in our lives that requires a hat, so why not go all out? Some of our real mums are sporting fabulous hats and fascinators below – which is your favourite?

Don’t discount outfits on the hanger, either. “While browsing in your local boutique, don’t dismiss shapes and silhouettes that you ‘think’ may not suit you,” continues Ian. “Quite often shapes can flatter you in places that you didn’t think were possible.”

Think outside the box when it comes to materials. “Most people go for simple silk when looking for a Mother of the Bride outfit but often a chic wool crepe, exquisite lace or silk jacquard can be a glamorous alternative,” suggests designer Susie Stone.

Consider your fabrics carefully and choose one that will see you through from day to night.

And the most important thing? “Don’t get swept up too much by what a Mother of the Bride should look like and remember your own style,” adds Susie. “We encourage our clients to try and look like themselves but on a really fabulous day! Being comfortable on the wedding day is crucial too, so as long as you feel happy you will look fabulous!”
