Once shopping for the perfect mother of the bride (MOTB) dress is complete, you can then start the really fun part – shopping for accessories. When it comes to wedding dresses, the bride’s mother typically chooses colors such as silver, gold, beige, navy or champagne. Ivory is also not a taboo color if the bride gives her consent. It pays to discuss all dress and accessory choices with the mother of the groom. Both the bride’s and groom’s mothers can coordinate their choice of outfits.
You should shop for your dress and accessories at least two to four months before the wedding date. This will enable you to have sufficient time for alterations and exchanges for the dresses and accessories such as shoes or gloves. This way you can be free of hassles as the wedding day approaches.
Accessories such as special wedding jewelry can enhance your look on that special day. You can choose glamorous crystal jewelry which can add to your elegant look on your daughter’s evening wedding ceremony. For weddings conducted during the day time, pearls are often the ideal choice. A mix of black and white pearls can give the most sophisticated look. You can also choose shoulder bags or shoes that go with your dress color.
With a little planning and an early start, it should not be so daunting for the mother of the bride to find the perfect thing to wear as well as the best matching accessory items. As the mother, you must not only help your daughter to look her very best, but also take the time to make yourself look and feel your best. It is no doubt the bride’s special day, but as her closest relative you will have a major role and be a very special part of it.
Don’t get discouraged if you don’t have the means to provide for your daughter as well as you would like to. There are plenty of discount stores that sell decent-quality accessories and no one will know the difference.
