Mother-of-the-Bride Style Guide

While the bride and groom are the centerpiece of every wedding, there are several important players that hold an

important role in the proceedings. Enter stage left: Mother-of-the-Bride (MOB) and Mother-of-the-Groom (MOG).

The MOB’s and MOG’s form an integral part of any nuptial event, and as a guest of honor, we pay homage to the role

they had in raising, shaping and doing their best to keep out of trouble, the person that the bride or groom is today.

Here we share with you the ultimate Mother-of-the-Bride (or Groom) Style Guide, so this special guest can be

dressed for success on your special day.

Color

Color is an important consideration for MOB’s and

MOG’s, as they want to fit with the overall theme – but

not too much! Consider tones that complement the bridal

party, but still stand out from the crowd. Avoid ivory or

white, as this is too close to bridal couture and don’t go

for anything that will clash with the bridesmaids or overall

color scheme for best photo results. Instead opt for

sparkling neutrals such as champagne, grey and silver.

Aim to complement the bride rather than overshadow

her.

Comfort

Just like the bride, MOB’s and MOB’s will enjoy the

celebrations much more if they’re feeling comfortable. Don’t choose styles that make you feel out-of-sorts and don’t

wear shoes that you wish you could lose after the ceremony. While style is a consideration; comfort is key.

Location

Important message to all MOB’s and MOG’s: make sure you team with

the theme, no matter what your normal attire. A church or formal

wedding is very different to a relaxed beach or island affair, so make

sure your attire suits the occasion, as well as being representative of

your individual style.

Pants

There are lots of stylish pants suit or trouser options for ladies who just

don’t feel comfortable in a more flowing garment.This is a perfectly

acceptable (and sometimes preferred) option for MOB’s and MOG’s

who like wear the pants. Tailored suits work well on larger frames, and

mixing and matching your pieces adds a more modern twist to a

matching suit set.

 Accessories

Accessories can be the make or break of any MOB/MOG outfit.

Use accessories to make a statement (but don’t go overboard) or

add some life to a plainer ensemble. Key pieces including jewelry,

clutches and shoes are the ideal finishing touches for a fresh,

modern look for this VIP guest – so don’t underestimate their

appeal.

Trends

Just like any other wedding staple, MOB fashion trends peak and

wane. Right now, trending items include:

        -Cropped blazers (for cooler months)
        -Floral prints (seasonal favorites)
        -Chic capes
        -Fascinators are out – hats are in
