For Mothers of the Bride and Groom

This post is taken from Emily Post site, an expert in wedding etiquette and wedding organizing.

So many questions I've heard already regarding the proper dress code of the mothers of the bride and groom at the wedding ceremony. How should they look? What appropriate colors of dress they should be wearing?Are both mothers of the bride and groom should appear in the same color and style of dress?

So, to address these questions and confusion, I browse the site of Emily Post to get some information and tips...

The old tradition of mothers wearing beige is now gone, according to Emily Post. It's now considered gone-with-the-ages. Mothers are now free to choose what type and color of dress they feel wearing as long as it stays within the limit of good taste and matches the style of the wedding.

But mothers are admonished not to wear white because the shade reserved for the bride and her female attendants. Choose something pastel or soft tone that closely reflects the wedding motif or wedding theme.

But the tradition of mothers of the groom and bride wearing different colors stick until today. It goes with allowing the mother of the bride picks the color of her dress first before the mother of the groom decides what to wear.

It's always part of the wedding manners to let the mother of the bride picks her own color first and no one in the family should wear the same style and color of her dress. Both mothers should wear different colors to the ceremony. It is not necessary for them to wear beige, please!

Mothers do not necessarily look matronly on the wedding day. They are free to choose the length of their dress as long as it is dignitary and not too overtly bold and skimpy. Mothers too need to look fantastically great on the wedding of their children.

To emphasize the significance of this topic, here are some important notes:

  • Mothers should not necessarily wear beige and should not necessarily look matronly on the wedding day of their children.
  • Mother of the bride should pick first the color of her dress before the mother of the groom decide what to wear.
  • Both mothers should wear different colors and style of dress at the wedding of their children.
  • Both mothers should pick colors that match the style of the wedding.
  • They should choose pastel or soft tone colors for their attire.
There you go...to solve the dilemma of mothers choosing colors and style of dress at the wedding of their children.
