Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day!

In honor of Mother’s Day and celebrating each and every mom, we thought it would be appropriate to focus on attire for the mother of the groom and the mother of the bride!   First of all, we would like to wish a Happy Mother’s Day to each and every mom.  We are so excited to offer a brand new mother’s line coming soon to Hitched Bridal and Formal Wear!   So what is a mother to wear to her daughter or son’s wedding?

Thankfully, the age old tradition of wearing a beige, motherly gown has been retired and fashionable, age-appropriate and tasteful is in!  A good rule of thumb is to follow any cue from the bride as to what to wear.  These could be the bride’s thoughts on formality, color, style, etc.  Also, asking the bride for some general guidelines on what she prefers would help make your decision easier as well.   The bride and groom’s wedding theme will definitely set the stage for what the overall look will be.    For example, if a bride is having a country themed wedding, something casual and country would be appropriate.  On the other hand, if the wedding is going to be a black tie affair, you would choose something a little more formal.

A mother’s gown should compliment the colors of the wedding.  There really is only one rule of thumb for mother’s gowns and that is simply not to match colors to what the bride is wearing.   These days really anything goes as far as short, long, jacket, formal as long as it coordinates with the wedding theme and colors.  Mother’s should start shopping once the bride has chosen her gown and the bridesmaids gowns, ideally at least 3 months out from the wedding.   This will allow enough time to special order a gown if the gown is not in stock in the correct size or color.

Whether you are looking for a warm and inviting sleeveless gown with full, soft lace on net featuring a grosgrain ribbon and a bateau neckline or you are looking for a short sheath with thick, luscious lace, embellished neckline, and V-back with hidden zipper closure, with our new Elegance Line from Christina Wu, we will definitely have a gown for your taste and event!

Happy Mother’s Day from all of us at Hitched Bridal and Formal Wear!  If you are in the market for a mother’s gown, we would love to help you find that perfect gown!
