Dressing: Mother of the Bride

Now that your daughter (or soon-to-be daugher-in-law) has her dress and alterations well in hand, you can get down to the business of what you’re wearing on wedding day. Our mother of the bride wedding dressescollection of elegant sophisticated evening dresses and gowns are tailor-made for this occasion. While we have everything you need at Nitsa’s to dress the perfect part, there are a few things that will help you best match your dress to the day.

  • Talk to your daughter to get a sense of the event and the type of attire you’ll need as the M.O.B. You want her to be comfortable with what you’re wearing, but you also need to be at ease. It’s a big day for you, too.
  • Talk to the Mother of the Groom to inform her of your ensemble’s color and formality. While it’s not necessary you dress the same—and probably best that you don’t— keeping length or sleeve style consistent is a good rule of thumb.
  • Find your shade. The best dresses for mothers and mothers-in-law complement their coloring, but don’t clash with the chosen wedding colors. Obviously creams and ivories are off-limits (you don’t want to compete with the bride), but don’t feel as if you need to choose the same hue as the bridesmaids, either.
  •  Ask us. We have a wealth of knowledge when it comes to dressing clients for special events—after all, we’ve been doing it for 40 years. Tell us all you know, and we’ll happily help you select the perfect dress, one that complements you and the wedding, too, whether that’s short to floor length, cap sleeve to strapless.
