When saying ‘I do’ the bride isn’t the only stylish gal in the room. Mother of the Bride also needs to look the part.
Gone are the days of outdated boxy silhouettes and matronly color schemes of beige and pastel. Whether she’s going to rock a sophisticated two-piece suit, elegant long gown or trendy tea length evening dress we have some looks that are sure to turn heads.
MOBs should start by looking to their daughter (or daughter’s to-be) as they make their dress selection. If all the bridal party will be wearing a specific fabric, lace, silk, etc, the mother of the bride may want to adopt the same theme. For elegant weddings this strapless crepe back satin A-line dress slays. With its sweetheart neckline, side ruched bodice, hand-beaded lace, and asymmetrically dropped waistline, all the gown’s unique features culminate above the gently gathered skirt. To really make it your own, consider investing in the dress’ matching shawl or removable straps.
Hello summer! If you’re looking for a mother of the bride dress as bright and warm as mommy dearest herself, this chartreuse lace knee-length sheath dress is a bowl full of sunshine. Thoughtful details like an illusion lace elbow-length sleeve, lovely bateau neckline and keyhole back give the gown a contemporary appeal. Hand-beading accents along the natural waistline trim the midriff and break up the lace all while adding a touch of flare. Just make sure colorful dresses fall in line with the rest of the bridal party and/or overall décor at the ceremony.
Move over boxy, pastel suit, there’s a new gown in town. This elegant floor-length asymmetrical gown is a true, unique beauty. The most prominent feature is an off center V-strap adorned with beads. Fastened to its straight neckline, the strap holds a flounce drape that sashays down the front of the gown and continues to the hem. When shopping for gowns as distinctive as this one, it’s important to encourage mom to start early (about three months prior to the wedding date). Doing so will leave time for any necessary alternations before the big day.
Often, bride and MOB will agree that traditional is the way to go. In that case, a pastel two piece mother of the bride dress is always in style. Between its sleeveless knee-length sheath, hand-beaded illusion neckline over sweetheart bodice, and keyhole back this classic look has been updated with a fresh silhouette. For a stately addition, pair with this matching three-quarter length sleeve bolero jacket.
If colors are getting in the way of mom trying on a style that you know would look killer on her, try suggesting she consider a neutral frock. This satin A-line mock two-piece dress is a great start. Illusion short sleeves trimmed with hand beading, an off-the-shoulder neckline and sweetheart bodice are only the beginning. The back features a keyhole cutout and sweep train, making it striking from all possible angles.
In the end, the most important decision should come based on the mother of the bride dress that mom feels the greatest in. So long as she does, she’s sure to radiate the joy and happiness brought forth by this most special of days, no matter what she’s wearing!

Stella York Bride
Bride Jessica and groom Adam knew instantly they were meant for one another. By celebrating their love with an intimate, canyon wedding, they were able to enjoy every second of their special day. Jessica wore a stunning Antique-inspired modified fit-and-flarewedding gown from Stella York, with a low, illusion back for her ‘I do’s’. What started out as love at first sight, continues into a perfect forever.
Virginia’s Keswick Hall proved the perfect backdrop for Blair + Grantham’s classic wedding, captured beautifully (as always) by Michael & Carina Photography. Blair stunned in this intricately-beaded Allure Bridals ballgown, and all the blush and gold details will keep our hearts happy for the remainder of the week. Keep scrolling for countless pretty accents and one very sleepy bulldog pup.
Mon Cheri Bride
We came upon this simple, minimalistic wedding held outside of Austin, Texas at a modern event space know as Prospect House on Sprout Floral Event & Design’s blog.
The ceremony took place outside in the surrounding landscape where native prairie grasses and trees provided a breathtaking backdrop.
Sprout decided to let ” the prairie be the focal point for the ceremony as it is seen through the steel frame that serves as a backdrop for outdoor weddings ~ adding native grasses in simple wood planters to tie in the scene.”
We love everything about this wedding and would be hard pressed to pick our favorite things, but we’ll try!
We are so enamored of the steel frame on the grounds that acts like a giant picture frame showcasing the landscape as backdrop.
A much inspired idea rather than decorating the actual frame which would take away from the gorgeous scenery. The unique and simple bridesmaids’ bouquets of tied grasses is also a highlight.
We could go on, but would rather you scroll down to check out all the beauty of both the venue and the floral design by Sprout. Mayhar Design styled the wedding and Taylor Lord captured this truly inspiring wedding.
How did you know when you found “the dress”?
I had been to a couple different wedding dress shops before, but felt like I was seeing variations of the same type of dress. I finally made an appointment at Kleinfeld because I knew they carried Maggie Sottero dresses. The Jade dress had been on the list of dresses I wanted to try on and as soon as I put it on I knew that was it! It had everything I was looking for; cap sleeves, open back, sweetheart neckline, and “gentle bling” as my bridal party said. My dog who passed away a year before was also named Jade, so I sort of took that as the deciding sign.
What was your favorite part of “the dress”?
Definitely the back! I love the double key-hole! But also, the overall shape and fit and all of the little details. I received SO many compliments the day-of.
Though the first modern-day pageant wasn’t organized until 1854, humans have been celebrating youthful beauty since the medieval ages. The oldest and most well known pageant, the Miss USA competition, originally began as a tourist attraction in 1921.
It has since grown into a contest celebrating intelligence and personality as well as physical appearance. It’s also a great place to spot emerging trends in formalwear.

Though the Miss Teen USA pageant may be over until next year, homecoming season is just beginning!
From the Martina Liana bride: Deron and I knew shortly after we met that this was the real deal. Early on we started talking about what we would do for a wedding, and for us it was just easy to say let’s get away and let this be about us. We knew we wanted to go somewhere tropical, and Mexico is fairly easy to travel to. I started to search for resorts, and The Royal seemed to stand out, as many friends have actually been there as well. We were also in the middle of building our new home, so we wanted our wedding to be stress free, relaxing, and somewhere warm. We stayed down there for our honeymoon, and it was truly the best week of my life!
We have to sigh with just a little bit of envy at this incredible wedding. Every intimate, cheery detail of Dulce + Mark’s Hawaiian nuptials, captured by Naomi Wong Photography, is nothing short of incredible. And we’ve yet to see a bride more stunning than Dulce — with pearlescent orchids in her bridal bouquet and soft half updo. She wore one of our very favorite classic lace gowns, perfect on her petite frame. The couple kept their look organic, warm and totally beautiful. And how could you expect anything less in such a perfect location?
Eddy K. Bride
To find her dress, Shannon visited some stores out of town before realizing Petrov Bridal was right there in her hometown. She liked how the store stood up with all the European designers. Thanks to the help of the owner, after trying on many dresses, Shannon was mesmerized by the ADK 77961.
She had some alterations done to the dress since she wanted an even lower illusion back and she added a beautiful belt to compliment her waistline. She also wore Swarovski Crystal Diapason earrings that matched the shape of the lace. Her mom had a pendant specially made containing a small capsule with her dad’s ashes so she could have her dad with her on her wedding day. She also had a small picture of him attached to the bouquet.
Maggie bride Jessica shimmered with elegance and sweet sophistication in her Jade gown from Maggie Sottero’s Serencia Collection. Inspired by the wedding party’s Caribbean backdrop, Jessica and her groom, Steve, chose pearls and coral-pink dresses for the bridesmaids, and smart suspenders and navy-blue suits for the groomsmen. Steve had proposed to Jessica by leaving a message-in-a-bottle in the sand near his parents’ beach house—he had to point it out twice before Jessica pulled out the cork to find “Will you marry me?” scrolled on the paper inside! Jessica’s favorite part of her wedding was when she and Steve danced to Tim McGraw’s “My Best Friend,” and Steve sang to her. “I couldn’t stop smiling,” says Jessica—after all the chaos and emotion of nuptials, it’s important to “remind yourself of what is truly important.”
It’s clear that our lace wedding dress was meant to find its way to Jessica; it was the first dress she tried on! Jade features an exquisite double-keyhole back and a Swarovski crystal- and bead-encrusted bodice. These lavish embellishments add tasteful opulence to the gown’s delicate cap sleeves and chapel-length train. We love that Jessica styled her locks in side-swept waves to match her nautical theme; it gave the occasion an air of Old Hollywood glamour and fit perfectly with the gown’s luxe shimmer and sweetheart neckline! We think she looks just like a mermaid princess.
