Daughter: Mom! Have you decided what you're going to be wearing for my wedding? Mother: Oh! Sweetheart! I just cannot decide! I don't want to look like an old woman trying to relive her youth through her daughter.
Daughter: So, what you're saying is you'd rather look like an ox on my wedding day? Mother: Oh gosh! No! But I just feel I'm not young any more, to be wearing any of these fancy designer dresses.
Daughter: And whoever you heard THAT from needs to be whacked in the head! You look fantastic! You're in great shape and nothing is going to stop me from showing you off on my wedding day! Come on, let's read about some dress patterns. Then you can choose.
Let's see how we can help the mother daughter pair together. Mother is conscious about her body. She does not think she can pull of a fancy designer dress. Well that throws some contemporary patterns out the window. How about some dresses with jackets? Some fabulous ideas that mothers of brides can try out.
Jacket Dresses for Mother of the Bride
You obviously remember your own wedding like it was just yesterday. And you're so elated that your daughter has grown up into a lovely woman and will soon experience the same joy that you felt. And you have to look great for her.
At the same time, you are conservative and do not want to go about flaunting your arms unnecessarily. Well here are some outfit ideas for the mother of the bride. They will fit the bill for comfortable and stunning wedding outfits perfectly.
Get yourself a stunning gown in a light pastel shade. Team it up with a shrug that either matches it perfectly or contrasts it loudly. There's no match like mis-match! The shrug that you're wearing should be a full sleeve one. This is what will give this outfit an elegant and mature look. Don't miss the strand of pearls around your neck!
Vintage wedding dresses with jackets for a mother of the bride is a superb idea. Sophistication and maturity at its height! The jacket can be of the same material as the dress. If you've found a dress, but it does not have a jacket, then visit some stores and find yourself a bolero. It is a more stately type of shrug and will give you an air of quality.
Choose from a variety of tea length dresses that can be teamed with jackets for a semi-formal look. If you get the jacket with the dress, well and good. But if you don't, then opt for a net/translucent sleeve jacket. It will conceal your arms, but give just a hint of skin.
That way you won't feel conscious, neither too flashy. Alternatively, you can go for a plain chiffon sleeved jacket and wear a large brooch to complete the ensemble.
Skirt with Jacket
A skirt with a jacket is what most mothers of the brides to opt for, and for a good reason. The perfect skirt is easier to find, compared to a gown or a dress. Plus, when we talk about jackets, it's much easier to team a skirt with a jacket than with a dress or gown.
So, you can get a skirt and blouse set in a color that complements your skin tone and you can either match the jacket of the outfit itself, or go for a contrast. Additionally, you can also go for an ethnic skirt and blouse and wear a matching jacket with it.
There are even many different looks that you can do on your daughter's special day. Other ideas for dresses with jackets are using a silk jacket if it's an evening wedding. If it's a summer wedding and you're likely to feel warm, choose a lightweight fabric for the jacket, like cotton.
Cotton can look elegant, if you make sure it is properly ironed and teamed with the appropriate accessories like a big vintage brooch or vintage jewelry. If it's a winter wedding, use a crochet or elegant woolen jacket. It will keep you warm and make you look sensational as well!
