From planning every little piece of décor to every outfit, it’s important that the couple of the hour are happy with the decision. As the mother of the bride, it’s important that you do everything possible to ensure that your daughter has the best day. One of the areas you can make a mistake is with your dress. Here are some mistakes to avoid while choosing your outfit.
Going Against the Dress Code
People choose a dress code for their wedding for a reason and violating that doesn’t make any sense. In fact, going against it is one of the biggest mistakes you can make, especially being the mother of the bride. We understand if you don’t like the set code, in that case, you can try and ask for your daughter’s help. She might help you figure out what she’s expecting.
Not Following the Color Request
No matter how big of a fashionista you are, remember that it’s your daughter’s big day. Instead of portraying your personality by using loud, bold colors, make sure you go ahead with what the bride has requested. There’s a possibility that the couple chose the color to match the mood board. However, in case you’re not feeling yourself in the color decided, have your daughter choose a different shade that works for both of you. But make sure that you know that the final say is hers.
Not Going With What You Know
There will be many, many opportunities when you can go ahead and try a new fabric, style, or accessory. But doing it on your daughter’s wedding day might be a big no. Instead of thinking out of the box, you need to go ahead and choose something that you’re already familiar with and that you know won’t be trouble for you. You have to be on your toes the entire day, and the last thing you need is an uncomfortable outfit.
Going for a White Dress
Never, we repeat, never wear a white dress to anybody’s wedding unless you are asked to. White color is designated to the bride and the groom, and wearing anything from a short dress to a full-length gown in that tone can make your daughter never want to speak to you again. Although it’s very obvious no guest should come to a wedding in white. Let the bride shine! There are several beautiful colors out there for you to choose from. Go ahead with them!
