The bride’s mother or women in general look more polished wearing stockings. However what is stylish and fashionable has become very flexible these days. Use common sense when making fashion decisions. If the wedding is in a very hot and humid climate it might make sense to go without stockings. If your legs look better with stockings wear them. If the bride’s mother is wearing a long dress, skirt or pants stockings are not necessary. Luckily there are more comfortable stocking options today. Visit a legwear store or the legwear department in your local department store to see what choices you have before you make a decision.
Tip: The bride’s mother should avoid patterned or colored stockings that focus attention downward. It is better to draw attention upward to your head and face area with good-looking jewelry, flattering makeup and an up-to-date hairstyle.

The one given when deciding what to wear for your daughter’s wedding is that every MOB (Mother of the Bride) wants to look great. Your daughter is the center of attention on her wedding day but that doesn’t mean you can’t shine too. Mothers of Brides usually have first choice when it comes to selecting an outfit for their daughter’s wedding but should let the Mother of the Groom in on what she is wearing if possible. A personal shopper/stylist at your favorite department store can help in selecting a MOB outfit.
