It is the biggest day of her life and quite a special day for you too, because the little girl that you raised is now about to become someone’s wife. You remember the importance of this day to you and want it to be perfect for her. As the MOB, mother of the bride, your roll is a very important one in her big day…so are you wondering, “what should I wear”?
Knee length dresses will ensure that you aren’t “over dressed” for the occasion, while a full skirted dress will add a youthful, playful flair. Nude and lace is the trend this fall in MOB bridal fashion. Choose a soft hued dress with a nude toned pair of shoes and handbag, and gold jewelry to accent.

Taupe, Navy, and Blush full length dresses are in for MOB bridal wear this Fall/Winter season. A lace upper bodice is not only feminine, but helps to make the arms look long and lean. Although full skirts are recommended for the rehearsal dinner cocktail dress, they are not preferred for wedding day attire. Full skirts can look “promy” and outdated. Choose a full length dress with a straight skirt. For evening weddings, choose a straight skirt dress with an accented frill down the side and a ruched front for a slimmer effect.

Flattering Dress Qualities:
Ruching– Can make you look a full size smaller
Thick Band– Around the waist and under the Bust not only makes you look slimmer but will give the bust a lift
Gathering– Of the skirt to one side, minimizes the width of the thighs. Of the bodice to one side, gives a deeper curve to the waist.
