The most important thing you need to know is to stay away from white and ivory dresses, it's your daughter's wedding day and no one should wear white but her.

The right time for buying your dress is after the bride gets her own. Once you've helped your daughter get her wedding dress, it's time to concentrate on yourself. You need to have your dress at least a month before the wedding.

What styles should you go for? If you are comfortable and look good in a certain dress style or cut then you don't have to change it. But here are a few ideas and styles for mother-of-the-bride dresses.



A sparkly or sequined dress can make you look younger, but make sure you don't show too much skin. A knee-length, long sleeved dress is a great choice if you want to show off some skin, but stay classy and elegant.

Off the shoulder dress

Off The Shoulder

This style is great to emphasize your shoulders and neck, but still age-appropriate.

Ruching on Side Dress

Side Ruching

The gathering of fabric on the side will frame your curves and make you look thinner on the waist.

Flutter Sleeves Dress

Flutter Sleeves

This style is perfect if you are full-figured. The sleeves will make your arms look leaner and smaller.

Illusion Sleeves

Illusion Sleeves

If you don't want to wear a long-sleeved dress to the wedding but still want to cover your arms, try a style that has illusion sleeves.  It will cover your arms but still, show some skin under the fabric like this one.
