Is your mum looking for some mother of the bride fashion inspiration? Well, look no further! We’ve got some of our most stylish MoBs from our real weddings with looks you might want to steal…


Going monochrome with your outfit is guaranteed to make your look timeless. Even when you’re looking through the wedding album in years to come, your outfit will seem far from outdated. Choose any colour accessories that you would like, and it will work! Take this mother of the bride for instance; she definitely stood out from the crowd in that showstopper.

We cannot get enough of this mother of the bride’s dress. It’s even got a touch of monochrome in it too! With amazing dresses like this, don’t go overboard by buying printed shoes or accessories as well – you don’t need it! Opt for a plain black pair, and you’ll look as fabulous as this. Va va voom!

Beige is always a popular choice for mother of the brides, and it’s not hard to see why. It’s a chic choice and suits any season, and any weather forecast! We particularly love this mother of the bride’s sleeves; it’s great idea to jazz up an outfit with different textures if you’re not looking to stand out with bright colours. 680


A trend that’s so hot for this year: metallics. We’re talking metallic decorations, metallic cakes, and yes, metallic outfits. But we’re definitely not talking ‘out-of-space’ gear, unless the wedding is themed (which we doubt). Look how glam this mum looks! It’s a special occasion, what better reason to dress like a superstar?     chloe-pete-colour-189


Particularly perfect for a summer wedding, going crazy with colour is always a winner with us at Wedding Ideas. As the mother of the bride, you want to stand out from the other wedding guests, don’t you? So make the most of your dress, your hat and your accessories and go bright, bright, bright! L+M_1588

Colour pop

This is the option for those mums that either don’t want to go crazy with colour, or have a more plain dress in mind: the colour pop technique. This is a technique that adds an extra oomph to any outfit, no matter how plain. Take a leaf out of this mother of the bride’s book. Colour pop shoes? Round of applause, please.   2013TRP_Gareth&Ellie396

So these are the kind of things the mother of the bride should be on the look out for on her shopping trips. But these are the things that the mother of the bride, or mother-in-law should definitely not be doing.
