Mother Of The Bride Dresses
Your mother of the bride dress, while obviously not as important as your daughters, is a key consideration on the day! Make sure your mother of the bride outfit isn't something you leave to the last moment, in between helping/running the whole show from behind the scenes. Bear in mind the British weather - nothing is worse that a mother of the bride dress that doesn't allow for a pretty shawl or cover-up in case things turn a little chilly. Have you thought about shoes? The finishing touch to any mother of the bride outfit is a killer pair of shoes that you can walk and most importantly dance comfortably in!
It's a lovely idea to co-ordinate with your future son-in-law's "mother of the groom" to make sure your mother of the bride dress isn't the same colour or style. Finally make sure you love your dress, shoes and shawl - your mother of the bride outfit will appear for many years in the future, though maybe not all at the same time!
