Mother of the Groom Dresses for a Spring Wedding
Spring is one of the most vibrant seasons to plan a wedding, especially if it’s an outdoor wedding, as nature is in full bloom during this time. The same beauty and liveliness of nature can be extended to the dress that you wear at your son’s wedding. Some of the color choices for you this spring season are – tangerine, lavender, margarita, watermelon pink, purple, apple green, chocolate, pine green, yellow, gold, orange, aquamarine and red. Before selecting the wedding dress color, it would be better to discuss with your daughter-in-law, just in case she has some particular wedding theme or color in mind that she wants everyone in the family to come dressed in. Also see to it that your color choice complements the color of the bridesmaids’ dresses for a harmonious color coordination. Traditionally, avoid wearing white dresses as white is one color reserved solely for the bride!
Besides the color, the style and shape of the dress should be chosen in accordance with the latest fashion trends as well as your body shape. The floor length formal wedding dresses, which come with jackets are a popular choice with plus-size women. These flatter all kinds of body shapes and can make any woman look elegant and beautiful.
Another style in spring wedding dresses, is the tea length dress. Tea length dresses end a little below the knee. You can opt for the one in solid colors, in different hues and shades. Carry a matching jacket to keep yourself warm as spring season often oscillates between hot and cold weather.
If you do not want to wear those typical dresses meant for the mother of the groom, and are looking for something chic and stylish, a good idea is to choose a short, knee length dress. For those who want to look trendy, choose the ones with spaghetti straps. Keep a stylish knitted shawl handy in a complementary color to beat the cold. If the wedding is planned in a garden, flowing, knee-length chiffon dresses with floral prints will make you look gorgeous and stand out from the rest.
These days, black knee length dresses are fast gaining popularity, so you can even consider them. Pair them up with contrasting colorful accessories to spice up your look.
For the ‘spring look’, keep the makeup and accessories subtle and sophisticated. Avoid wearing flashy makeup or accessories. A pair of earrings with a matching pendant and bracelet is more than enough. As the mother of the groom, you should look dignified and classy. If your dress already has some beads, ribbons or ruffles on it, you can completely do away with the accessories, except for a pair of earrings. Besides, if you like any specific color and wish to wear it regardless of the season, just go ahead. After all it is your son’s wedding day, and you deserve to look regal, elegant and stylish!
