Port Jefferson Station, NY (PRWEB) May 31, 2011
Choosing the perfect dress for a son or daughter’s wedding may seem like a daunting task. Magic Moments, women’s favorite specialty designer dress store, breaks down the style trends and choices mothers need to look and feel their best on this special day. The Mother of the Bride or Groom wants to look stylish and find that perfect dress to compliment their figure. There are so many fabrics, styles, and colors to choose from that it’s not as hard as they think.
A good place to start looking is in magazines, or browsing on the internet. The mother should invite their daughter, or future daughter-in-law for their input on dresses. After all, this is her special day, and she may have a vision of what she wants her wedding party to look like, including the mother. Plan a beautiful stress free afternoon together to shop different stores and boutiques, and then go out to lunch together. What a wonderful way to spend time with the daughter or future daughter-in-law.
Since the mother of the bride or groom will be seen throughout the wedding and with the wedding party, the color is an important factor. Mothers do not need to match the bridesmaids, but they do need to blend with them. Traditional baby blue and lilac pastel hues were the choice of mother of the bride ensembles for years. More popular now are richer colors including plum, navy, cranberry, cobalt, and forest green. Obviously, stay away from white as well as ivory. The bride and the flower girl are the only two that could wear those colors unless the bride is choosing to celebrate with an all white wedding, sometimes called “Snowflake” wedding, similar to the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Miss Catherine Middleton.
Most women want to look as slim as possible on this special day. Ruching, gathered, or wrapped fabric around the waistline creates a very slimming effect. This look is also very forgiving, as the extra material visually smoothes out areas which may be less than toned. Most mothers of the bride and grooms dresses also include jackets, shawls or sleeves which make women feel more comfortable. During customers’ alteration appointments, Magic Moments has worked with a skilled seamstress to custom design stylish attached shawls & capelet shoulders for extra coverage. Most dresses do require some alterations to achieve that perfect, just made for her, look and fit.
