Outsize Mother of the Bride Outfit
Traditionally the mother of the groom has an easy time. After all she is not paying for the wedding, or organising anything unless she volunteers to do so. She can therefore be totally indulgent and spoil herself when looking for the perfect luxury outfit. Like the mother of the bride, the groom’s mother must look fantastic and special. This special designer outfit is perfect for all sizes from petite to plus size.
Keeping within the chosen atmosphere of the wedding, but not forgetting her own colour preferences the mother of the groom can spend shopping time with friends, but make sure that they are friends that do not put her into an ‘old’ category by persuading her to choose an old fashioned outfit. You dress to please yourself, not to please your friends – take advice if you respect their judgement, but be careful of the kind of friend that is outdated in her thinking – even daughters can be a problem, expecting their mother to ‘look her age’.
Something floaty and feminine is less aging, something pretty enough to show off the best bits and clever enough in the cut to hide the parts that cause concern. If you are short – wear long – it will make you look taller and thinner. If you have fabulous ankles – show them off. There is no reason why a mother of the groom even if she is plus size cannot show a pretty cleavage.
An outfit that is not too restricting is better for a busy day partying. The mother of the groom has to look cool, sophisticated and lovely all day long and that is not easy in an outfit that is too tight on the body. Fabric that moulds around the body cleverly enough to give a slim look without the restrictions normally associated with tight straight skirts, darts and hard waist bands which can become uncomfortably when sitting down for too long at the wedding breakfast.
