Mother of the bride outfits
While the world speculates on what Kate Middleton will wear for the Royal Wedding we can't help but wonder what Carole Middleton, her mother, will choose!
The bride’s dress is the focal point of any wedding; but when everyone's finished admiring the bridal party it's the mother of the bride outfits that they check out next.
As mother of the bride, you'll want to make a good impression with your outfits on your daughter’s wedding day. You'll play a major role, perhaps even as hostess, on the big day so you'll want to feel elegant and comfortable.
Selecting mother of the bride outfits that suits the theme of the wedding and don'tt attempt to upstage the bride (but most definately the mother of the groom - you know it's true!) is a tricky business.
Mother of the brides dresses should compliment the rest of the wedding party. You can get bogged down in dowdy formal and "traditional mother of the bride" attire (think boxy twinsets and tweed - blaaah!) but fortunately there is plenty of fashionable wedding outfits and dresses available on the high street that suit all shapes and sizes.
If you are searching for ideas here are a few outfits to gain some inspiration or help find the look that will flatter the figure and beautifully complement a daughter on her special day.
