Attention mothers of the bride! Your daughter's big day is fast approaching, and while you most definitely need to let the bride shine, your child's wedding day is one of the most important events in your life. So make sure to mark the moment by choosing mother of the bride dresses that are fashionable and flattering.
While your look should no doubt complement the wedding's vibe, mothers of the bride aren't restricted to traditional mother of the bride dresses. In fact, your ensemble should reflect your personal style. And the same goes for mothers of the groom! (Just make sure to run your outfit choice by the bride, first.)

But we didn't rule out more conservative creations either: Foster your confidence with a long-sleeve lace gown or three-quarter ruched sheath.

Cinched waistlines, ruffled layers, and silhouette details like longer sleeve-lengths and necklines that run straight across the chest will show off your shape, while at the same time hiding any problem areas you don't want to be seen.
