Although the bride is the center of attention on her wedding day, her mother and the groom’s mother usually are the hosts for several of the events surrounding the wedding activities. Whether she is classic in her style, traditional or a bit edgy, we find that moms too want to feel special on the wedding day. We are honored and proud to help dress the other most important women of the wedding day: your mom, your groom’s mom and the grandmothers.
If possible, we like to schedule an appointment for at least an hour for a one-on-one session with a stylist in the Special Occasion department of our salon. We review colors, styles, trends and then help with the selection of the best silhouette for her shape, as well as the style of the bride’s wedding. Very often, we will custom design a gown or perhaps a wrap or jacket to accompany a strapless gown.
If you are one of the moms who love a bargain, we invite you to visit A Bridal Closet. There you can find perfect mother of the bride or groom apparel from $65.00 to $1,000, as well as wedding dresses for the bride. These gowns may be discontinued styles or colors or just placed on clearance due to overstocking. Click to visit A Bridal Closet.
How soon before the wedding should I order my gown?
Some gowns can be received within two weeks others take 3 months. It is best to purchase your gown no later than three months before the wedding. This time frame ensures time for alterations and the purchase of necessary accessories. Another good idea is to purchase after the bride has selected her bridesmaids’ dresses.
What color should I wear?
Today, any color except white. However, always ask the bride what would color would best suit her color palette. The mother of the bride selects first then the mother of the groom.
What length should I wear?
This depends on the formality of the wedding, the time of the wedding and what the hostess, usually the mother of the bride, prefers. After six in the evening usually is formal and therefore a long gown is appropriate.
