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.

10 Things Every Mother Of The Bride Should Know

25 Oct 2016 Posted by trubridal in Mother of Bride
 Every bride at one point or another will come into conflict with their mother during wedding planning (trust us). Even if she is your best friend, your pseudo-wedding planner, or your right-hand woman for every decision, you will clash at some point. Even the mothers that prefer to stay in the background will have opinions. So what do mothers of the bride need to know? We rounded up 10 of the best tips from brides about what every mother should remember during the planning process through the wedding day. Hint: pass this along (nicely!) to your dear old mother.

Shining Moments

1. This is your daughter’s moment to shine. Not yours. This doesn’t mean you can’t look fabulous, but a sexy, strapless, body-con gown is probably not the best idea. You are playing a central role on the day, but your daughter is the star. Elegant and classic are the right words to describe your look and attitude. Even if you dislike certain details (like your daughter’s sexy, strapless gown), keep it to yourself. Remember: compliments and smiles!

1. This is your daughter's moment to shine. Not yours.
2. It is inappropriate to wear white, cream, or ivory. Mothers of the bride, do not even think about wearing a color in/near/around the whites on your daughter’s special day. It is totally inappropriate and unkind. She is the princess in white and no one should be close to her wedding gown color on the day. Need some guidance? Shop MoB dresses here.
It is inappropriate to wear white, cream, or ivory
3. The Bride and Groom are running the show. Some mothers tend to be a little controlling and/or overbearing but on the wedding day, mothers need to know who is in charge. The bride and groom are the gatekeepers of all final decisions leading up to the wedding and throughout the day (or a designated professional, like a wedding coordinator). Unless you have been asked to run something, stay out of the way. For example: Thinking about surprising them with the family dog at the ceremony? Not without their sign off
The Bride and Groom are running the show.
4. Learn to pick and choose your battles wisely. Some traditions are nearer and dearer to your heart than your daughters. So if there is something you must see or do on the wedding day, like a Chuppa, confirmation during a catholic service, or even a Hungarian tea (true story), pick ONE that is a must. It will be seen with more importance and your daughter can’t say no to your one request, right? Just like the bride has to pick and choose her battles, so should you.
Learn to pick and choose your battles wisely.
5. Get to know the in-laws. This is your daughter’s new family and in this day and age, the mother of the groom may be just as involved as the bride’s mother (or would like to be) when it comes to planning the big day. Especially when budgets are getting split. Brides, make sure both mothers feel included! How about a lunch date for the ladies to discuss the wedding details?
Get to know the in-laws.
6. Be supportive, no matter what. Even if your daughter is turning into bridezilla (which they sometimes do), mothers need to stay poised, calm, and collected. It is your job to be the pillar of stability during this crazy time and your daughterswill want someone who can both help them make the big decisions and keep their cool when things go awry. We can’t promise it will be easy, but please try for the bride!
Get to know the in-laws.
7. Offer to help, but only what you are truly willing to do. You should only offer what you want and can do. If you have a full-time job, maybe volunteering to meet with florists mid-week is a bad idea. Or if you have a special talent in table decorations or paper goods, offer to lend a hand here. Don’t offer your help on items that you have no interest in! And certainly don’t fill your schedule with more than you can handle. We know you want to be involved, just do it wisely.
Offer to help, but only what you are truly willing to do.
8. Be open about the guest list. We know tradition states that mom and dad are hosting the party (i.e. paying for it) and therefore, the guest list should be decided by them. Not anymore. For this generation, the bride and groom are normally the ones in control of the almighty guest list. You should abolsutely have a say in whose invited (and how many), but does the great-aunt you’ve never met need to come? Or those ‘friends’ you haven’t spoken to in ten years? No. Be reasonable here.
Be open about the guest list.
9. Offer your wedding gown, but don’t force it. We know you may have been saving your Wedding Dress for your daughter ‘some day’, but styles and fashions have evolved. You should definitely make the offer, but please don’t be offended if the bride (politely) says no. Maybe offer the veil? Or perhaps a piece of the dress can be used, like lace? Seamstresses and tailors can do wonders with old dresses. Be open-minded!
Offer your wedding gown, but don't force it.
10. Discuss wedding outfits with the mother of the groom. This may seem trivial, but having the mothers coordinate is a wonderful bonding experience! Plus, it is tradition (and polite) to share your look for the wedding. Also, as the head matrons, your look will set the tone for the wedding. The mother of the groom doesn’t want to outshine you (we hope) and wouldn’t it be horrible if you wore the same thing? Share!
Discuss wedding outfits with the mother of the groom.

21 Mother of the Bride Dresses for a Fall/Winter Wedding

11 Jun 2016 Posted by trubridal in Mother of Bride

While we love spring and summer weddings, there are SO many gorgeous things you can do with fall and winter weddings, and that includes Mother of the Bride dresses. Aside from finding the perfect fall Bridesmaid dresses (and of course your own Wedding Dress), there are a ton of options for beautiful Mother of the Bride dresses that will really stand out.

From deep hues like marsala and hunter green to cooler colors like emerald blue or icy grey, we’re loving the Mother of the Bride dresses we found in the gallery above.

Keep in mind that even though some moms might be afraid to be a little more fashion forward when it comes to Mother of the Bride dresses, it’s a great opportunity to support different styles you think might look amazing on her (that she wouldn’t normally wear). Whether it’s a knee-length cocktail dress, body-hugging long-sleeve maxi dress, or a sleeveless or strapless ballgown, your mom will look elegant in any of these Mother of the Bride dresses for a fall or winter wedding. Just keep in mind that the style should definitely reflect your wedding venue and your Wedding Dress. If you’re getting married in a ballgown you’ll want to opt for a full-length dress for your mom. However, if your dress is more A-line or sheath, you can go search for a wide range of Mother of the Bride styles.
