Summer vibes and time for weddings. If you are the mother of a bride, you want to make sure that you look your best. You want to look classy and beautiful but at the same time not take away from your daughter as she is the star of the show that day. Shopping for any outfit can be stressful, but finding the perfect dress can really be a challenge. Here I have for you some tips as you shop for your mother of the bride dress.


  1. Get measured by a professional. Garments look better when they fit properly. It is a good idea to go to a professional seamstress or saleswoman at your local luxury department store. Having the proper measurements in hand will be helpful when shopping for the perfect dress.

  1. Choose the right color. Be sure to avoid wearing white or black. Black can symbolize death or a funeral whereas white is to be reserved for the bride only. It is quite a faux pas to wear white to a wedding and it would be worse for the mother of the bride to wear such a color unless instructed to do so by the bride. It is always a good idea to get an idea of what color your daughter would like for you to wear to the wedding.

  1. Length. As with choosing a color that your daughter wants you to wear, it is important to find out what length of dress she would like you to wear as well. If it is an evening wedding, you will likely want to choose a dress that is floor length whereas if it is a lunchtime wedding you can probably wear a more casual dress. Regardless of what time of day the wedding takes place, you will want to make sure that your dress is of a tasteful length and not too short.

  1. Find matching shoes. Regardless of the type of dress you want to purchase, you will want to find a pair of shoes that match. You will likely want to avoid wearing stiletto pumps as they will be uncomfortable as the day wears on. Try to find a shoe that is classy and dressy but not over the top in the fancy department. If you plan on dancing the night away, consider bringing a more comfortable pair of shoes with you so that you can avoid blisters and discomfort.

  1. Plus-size shopping. Sometimes you may have to shop for a dress size that is hard to find in stores or perhaps is not available on the rack. If you are a woman in need of a plus-size dress, be sure to check out the many lovely styles and choices offered online by ChescaDirect. You can try the dress on in the comfort of your own home and decide if you like the look or not. If you do not, simply send the dress back for a refund. With the many styles and colors to choose from, you are surely going to find the perfect dress!
