A lace dress is perfect for a Mother of the bride. Closed toe pumps or closed toe slingback style shoes would be very stylish with your dress. The heels should be no higher than 2 1/2 – 3 inches high. With closed toe shoes you can wear ultra sheer hosiery for a more polished look. Weddings are dressy and stockings look great at special events. A clutch style or small size purse would be appropriate for the Mother of the Bride.
What Should the Mother of the Bride Wear?
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.
