Three Questions To Ask Yourself When Choosing Mother of the Groom Gowns

Posted by Dimitra Designs on Jul 5th 2018

Most bridal websites list only Mother of the bride dresses, but what about Mother of the Groom Gowns? You want to look your best on your son’s wedding day, and are looking to choose a style that reflects your personality and the wedding itself. Read on for some tips on choosing the perfect Mother of the Groom gowns to help you look absolutely stunning on your son’s big day!

1. How formal is the wedding?
Are your son and his future bride getting married in a formal church, an outdoor ceremony, or perhaps even a beach wedding? A formal church requires an elegant Mother of the Groom gown, such as our Landa Chantilly Lace with Cashmere Charmeuse dress. A more relaxed day calls for a floaty dress, like our Alyce Silk and Charmeuse Mother of the Groom gown.

2. Should you match the wedding colors?
You’ll need to consult with the bride-to-be on this question. We’re seeing more and more Mother of the Bride and Mother of the Groom’s wearing similar colors as the wedding party, and it really creates dazzling wedding photos. It’s ultimately the bride’s preference, but it has become a popular trend. Simply choose one of our Mother of the Groom gowns in a similar color as the bridesmaids, or choose a color that complements their bridesmaid dresses.

3. What is the Mother of the Bride wearing?
You don’t want to outdo the Mother of the Bride, but you also don’t want to look under-dressed compared to her. You’ll both be family soon, so make a day of it and look for Mother of the Bride and Mother of the Groom gowns together. It’ll create a bonding experience for both of you, and you’ll be able to ensure you’re choosing gowns on a similar elegance level.

All of our Mother of the Groom Gowns are designed to help you look stunning and elegant on your son’s big day.
