Your children are getting married – and while this is an obviously huge moment in their lives, it will surely be more than emotional for you too. Of course, you want to look at the very best on the Big Day – but does that mean that you have to match your dresses as the mothers of the bride and groom? We have gathered some tips for you – so read on and find out more.
- To put it shortly, no, your dresses don’t have to match – but this is not a “written” rule, so you can expect the bride to ask you to match your dresses with each other and even to match your dresses with the general color scheme too.
- Although you don’t have to match your colors, it is still very important that you coordinate your level of formality with the wedding itself and with each other too. The reason this is mandatory is because you don’t want to look overdressed or underdressed (not when compared with other guests and definitely not when compared with the “other mother”).
- At the end of the day, what you wear at your children’s wedding is entirely up to you and the bride. Talk to each other about style and formality, see if you would want to coordinate the colors too and wear whatever makes you feel great. For some, this may be a two-piece. For others, it may be a dress. As long as you’re both dressed excellently for the event, there will be no issue whatsoever!
