Matronly Mother of the Bride, Dresses, and Sewing and How Not to Look Like Mrs. Doubtfire

As you may or may not know, I have two kids getting married this year.  The first wedding is on St. Patrick’s Day and the second is three months after that! There are a lot of details to work out, but the kids are on top of those.  My daughter is a med student and lives out of town so the first goal was to find a wedding dress.  That was a bit nerve-wracking, be we found “the one” and it arrived so quickly that she had two fittings by Christmas break! So after the first of the year and when life settled a wee bit, Annie and I went out looking for a dress for me.  We looked at several Bridal galleries, Macy’s, Dillard’s, Nordstrom and Sak’s. I tried on a few at Dillard’s but really struggled.  I think I even broke Annie – my fashionista.

She knows (and you probably do, too) that I am a bit of a plain Jane. You know, a Land’s End girl who loves to wear wool sweaters.  I entertained the idea of wearing a cabled sweater but Annie would have none of that. I was pretty sure that I wanted a black dress because most of my wardrobe is black.  And the bridesmaids are wearing green.  (Later, I did not limit my search based on color because I probably won’t even be in any photos with the bridesmaids, so who cares!)

I was leaning toward a tea length dress but was open to a long one as well.  I didn’t see anything at Macy’s. Dillard’s has the best selection locally, but by the time you narrow it down for size and style, there really isn’t much to choose from.  I did try some on, though. The first dress I tried on was this. I liked the peplum but did not like the mermaid bottom. I also don’t like the cap sleeves.  I am not a fan of sleeveless at my age. (You know, I’m happy with my body. I work out in ways I enjoy – walk, run, bike, ski, etc.  But I don’t really “work out.” ) You would think that cap sleeves would be a good compromise, but the reality is that they reveal all kinds of flesh under the arm and toward the breast. It’s really strange but this was not the first dress that this happened to me.  So I ruled out cap sleeves.

I tried on another dress at the store which was fitted at the waist and with a few pleats/gathers. I told Annie I felt like a 50-something lady wearing a prom dress.  And I felt like Mrs. Doubtfire.

After losing 20+ pounds, I have been very comfortable wearing some new styles.  However, this process of trying a lot of styles on has helped me realize what I think looks good on me. I also took a look at the styles in my closet – mainly shifts and shirt dresses.  So I have come to the realization that dresses with a gathered waist, although I adore the style, make me look like Mrs. Doubtfire – like I’m all boobs. So at this point, Annie was giving up on me. We did a quick look at Nordstrom and Sak’s (where most were over $1,000) and went home and did some shopping on the internet.

The first two dresses to arrive were these:

I tried them on late at night and didn’t care much for either of them.  The top one fit nicely, but was a bit plain. (What, you say?) I think because it is a knit it didn’t feel very special. The second one, an Alfred Sung who is the same designer as the bridesmaid’s dresses, is so pretty in silk dupioni.  But, again, the gathered waist and cap sleeves did not flatter me.   I was a 50+ year old in a prom dress.

And can I take a moment to talk about these models?  Do I really need to say the obvious? It would be really nice to see these dresses on women who are closer to the age of “mothers of the bride.”

Annie asked me to show my husband these dresses and he didn’t hide his feelings.  To his defense, we did ask his opinion!  At that point, Annie told him HE could help me find a dress……

We gave it some time and a week or so later sat down at the computer again. First, I ordered this dress from Eshakti. I have never ordered from them before.  It’s an interesting concept. They present styles which you can customize. When I ordered this dress I could have lengthened the sleeves and even the dress.  I decided not to change anything. I know it’s on the simple side but I think the sequins add a bit of bling. Even if I don’t use this for the weddings, I could see using it for other events. I am waiting for this to arrive.

In addition to Eshakti, we went back to Dillard’s and Nordstrom. This time we checked all the dress categories:  mother of the bride, formal, wedding, etc.  I did not restrict on color but I did filter out sleeveless and cap sleeves. I ordered an additional five dresses.  The first one to arrive was the wrong dress.  It was this one:

I didn’t care for the slit, but I liked the silhouette.  I like the columnar look. I sent that back and the replacement arrived.

It is not at all something I would have picked.  But Annie liked it and when you are ordering that many dresses you might as well get a variety to try on. It was pretty, but a bit too embroidered for me.

Of the remaining dresses, I feel comfortable that I will have something that will work!  I tried them all on for my mom and my husband and they liked almost all of them.  Mom even liked the original two black ones up on top.

First is this one which has all-over embroidery and looks grey. I liked that it wasn’t clingy and the sleeves were a little different for me. It has a simple silhouette and just a little drama.

My mom really loved this blue dress. This is a knit, similar to the black knit above.  This one, with the ruching on the side, is very flattering. However, I feel just a bit too ordinary in the knits. (I know, I’m a dichotomy. My mom said, “didn’t you just say you like plain clothes…”) I have several knit dresses in my closet that have the ruching and it does work well for me. But, again, a little too plain.

I didn’t order this dress, but it is available at Eshakti. When I thought about what styles I have in my closet that I like, the shirt dress comes up.  Annie felt this wasn’t a good choice for me, so we didn’t order it. (I don’t want to look like a nun.)

She did really like this Ralph Lauren.

I tried this on and the blouson top is really flattering. The top is a knit and the bottom is sequined.  My mom really liked this one and I think this may be the front runner. Would you believe that the sleeves have a slit from shoulder to wrist? How, exactly, are you supposed to know this based on this photo? I don’t think I like that, but that is an easy sew.

Finally, there is this dress. However, I ordered it in a dusty emerald and a photo of it is nowhere to be found on the internet.

What intrigued us about the dress is the detailing. It’s inspired by the Jazz Age and we recently saw an exhibit on the Jazz Age at the Cleveland Museum of Art. I am currently thinking I could wear this for my son’s wedding in June. After all, he is a jazz pianist.  It is a little big and there are no more on the internet. So I am waiting for Annie to come home this week and see them on me and we will go from there. I am  confident I will have a dress to wear!

Both of these last two dresses are so comfortable. I can move my arms freely without exposing flesh. The waistlines are comfortable. Some alterations on length and other areas may be needed, but those are small hurdles. And the best part – I don’t need to wear Spanx!  I don’t own Spanx.  I’m not anti-Spanx (well, maybe I am for me), I’m pro-good design/fabric.

Maybe Maiden Jane won’t be too plain after all!

I considered the possibility of sewing my dress. But it felt overwhelming to me and I wouldn’t want to be rushed. Plus, I hadn’t really honed in on styles that are flattering for me. Through the process above, I recognize that I like a blousson top and also a knit dress with ruching or gathering at the side. I have purchased patterns in the past that I like. But I don’t know if the style would be good for me. That is something I want to focus on as I move forward in sewing for myself.

I was very happy with this Vogue dress I made. (I’m the one on the right….)

I have this Vogue 1208 pattern. I think it would be a flattering style.

I also have this Vogue V1182 pattern.

Maybe I simply like red? Actually, I love red!  I have hopes to sew these patterns some day but I haven’t sewn enough for myself to select a pattern and fabric with confidence that it would work for me.

What do you think?

 

 

 

 

Mother of the Bride Dress (Butterick 5450)

I can now breathe a sigh of relief! For the past nine months, my sewing life revolved around my daughter’s wedding. In spite of the best laid plans, I ended up cramming to finish my own dress. I had some free time in between long distance fittings for her gown but I could not bring myself to start on mine until I was sure I completed hers. So with just two weeks left before the big day, I was muslin fitting some new to me dress patterns.

Fabric

The wedding’s theme color was purple and blue. I have read that the MOB (Mother of the Bride) dress does not necessarily have to match the theme color but care should be taken not to clash with it either. My daughter didn’t care what color I chose so I went with my favorite shade of blush pink. It is easier to sew something when one is inspired by the fabric. 

 I bought this gorgeous embroidered mesh lace fabric from Etsy. My plan was to use it as an overlay on silk satin fabric. 

Here is a view of the silk satin fabric to the left and the silk charmeuse lining to the right. Both were purchased from Emma One Sock. 

To give an idea of the timeline, I bought the lace fabric in April and the rest in May.

Pattern

I went through several muslin fittings of the following patterns. Unfortunately, none of the styles worked for my shape or with my fabrics. 


When I only had two weeks left into the wedding, I was beginning to sense a bit of panic so I thought why reinvent the wheel and not just go for one of my TNT (tried and tested) patterns? So I pulled out my favorite Butterick 5450. 

I have sewn this pattern countless times since I bought it. Thankfully I have preserved the original because through the years, my measurements have changed and it seems like I go up a size every time I make a new version! 

Construction

My plan was to sew the entire dress in silk satin and cut out the lace overlay and hand sew them as appliques. I had to interface my entire silk fabric with a medium weight fusible interfacing as the fabric needed more body. Sewing the underlying dress was the easiest part. The hand sewing process was labor intensive and took me maybe four to five days. 

Here is a view of the interfaced fabric. I used ProSheer Elegance Medium Fusible interfacing purchased from Fashion Sewing Supply. The interfacing not only added more body to the fabric but it also helped minimize the wrinkling tendency of the delicate silk satin. 

These are the bodice pieces cut out and ready to assemble. 


Here is the skirt part. 


Here is a view of the lining already stitched to the outer fabric. The pattern only provided lining for the bodice but I fully lined mine. 

Here is the fun part! Playing around with applique layout. 

It is often preached that one should be careful when using pins of silk as they will leave marks. So I made sure to pin where the embroidery will cover any leftover markings. I used those thin sharp Japanese glass head pins for this project. 

Hand applique sewing in action! I used T.E.C. brand Japanese needles size 9 for hand sewing. Found them at Etsy.

After all the appliques were sewn, I hemmed the dress. 

I sewed a lace hem tape to the silk fabric hem and used handsewn catch-stitches being careful not to let the thread show up on the outer side. 

To sew the lining hem, I serged the raw edges first then pinned them to the edge of the finished dress hem. 


Then I hand sewed it catching only the inner fabric. 





 When it was all sewn, the lining hem was then folded down, similar to what is usually done in jacket hems. That way, the entire bottom edge of the dress was effectively sealed. 


I wasn’t really planning to sew applique all around the bottom edge but it was a good way to camouflage the hemline marks that were inevitable even with the most careful blindstitching. 

The Finished Dress

So here are pictures of the finished dress including some taken during the wedding itself. 

View of the lining. Pardon the wrinkles. I took these pictures after the event was over and before I dropped it off to the dry cleaners. 


If you are wondering why the difference in lining color, I used up silk charmeuse from stash for the skirt part. 


I just want to show these tiny prick stitches I used to tack down the bodice lining along the neckline. 

Here are photos of the dress in action!

Almost forgot to mention that I made a small clutch from leftover fabrics to hold my cell phone and and other essentials like tissue, lipstick and eyeglass cleaner during the wedding.

Photos below are all courtesy of my best friend May who documented the entire wedding!

Oops, showing off the wrinkly back!


Finally at the entryway of the house while we awaited wedding guests.

Timeless Trends for the Mother of the Bride

Posted at 08:00h in Dresses and Gowns by davidsbridal

It’s likely that your wedding dress was chosen with mom or future mom-in-law’s expert insight. So, why not do the same and help her find the comfortable, chic, and fitting for the formality of the big day dress that she deserves! We’re sharing mother of the bride (and groom!) trends that stand the test of time, plus our current favorite dresses for pulling them off.

Off-the-Shoulder

Style 2047

Off-the-shoulder or cold shoulder gowns offer a stylishly inviting detail and create an overall flattering look for mom. This sleek, stretch-lace mermaid dress glitters under the lights while the cuffed cold-shoulder neckline creates a stunning focal point. Keep it simple and let the dress do the talking or amp up mom’s look with eye-catching accessories that will be sure to make mom feel her best!

Ball Gown

Style VCRS1482

The ball gown is a classic silhouette when you think of weddings. Not only for the bride, but the dress shape is also fitting for the MOB and MOG, too! Formal when paired with a shiny satin, but the unexpected high-low hem is a modern take we are still loving.

Capelets + Sleeves

Style AP1E206834

Pretty cropped sleeves offer arm coverage while still remaining stylish. The subtle illusion details or a touch of sparkle are universally flattering and appropriate for mom.

Sequins, Florals + Embroidery

Style WBM2189W

Prints, patterns, and shimmering dress details will always be a yes in our book. Dresses incorporating these details strike a balance between glamour and ease with their soft silhouette and striking characteristics. This allover sequin gown offers classic glamour that will make mom feel (and look) her best!

Pantsuits and Jumpsuits

Styles 950136,  701113

Opting for coordinated separates or easy-to-wear jumpsuits takes the guesswork out of putting together the perfect outfit. And let’s be honest, pants are better for the dance floor! While the best choice for comfort, mother of the bride pantsuits and jumpsuits are incredibly elegant, available in sophisticated colors, and pretty details.

Want to see mom in motion? Watch for inspiration!

90,000 for slim and fat mothers of daughters Evening dresses

A wedding causes excitement and excitement not only for the bride, but also for all her relatives. Everyone begins to think over their own image, especially the mother of the bride.

Ethics of relations

No matter how busy they are with choosing a dress for the bride and wedding chores, the mother of the future bride should take care of her outfit.It is better to let it happen early, for example, a month before the solemn event.

It does not hurt to ask the bride herself for advice, maybe some advice or wishes will follow from her side. It is very beautiful and, by the way, quite fashionable, when mothers’ outfits are in harmony in color or even style with the outfits of the bride and groom. Just do not impose this proposal, the mother of the bride must herself approve such a decision for her outfit.

In the absence of such, you need to choose an outfit that will be comfortable. After all, the whole day will be spent in worries. Accordingly, he should not hinder movement. His style can be familiar and classic.

Difficulties can arise if the whole wedding has a theme.But for some it makes the choice easier.

Therefore, when choosing, you need to know exactly in what style the celebration will take place.

Styles for full mothers

It is rare that adult children have slender parents.So the mother of the bride faces some difficulties when she begins to choose an outfit for herself. If you take into account the rules and follow the recommendations of the fashion industry experts, you can look quite elegant and sophisticated, and turn all the minuses of the figure into absolute pluses.

The simplest and most common way is to choose a long and slightly fitted dress. You can choose a lace model, which is considered fashionable.The cut is usually simple and elegant, although drapery is also appropriate. The slit on the skirt is not prohibited either.

Not only a long dress has elegance, but also a slightly shortened one. You will probably want to feel freedom of movement and comfort, and a long dress will restrain movement. After all, at the wedding you will have to walk a lot, meet guests, dance, receive congratulations and even participate in contests that require dexterity.

You will look even better with a long cape or jacket that matches the color of the selected dress.

Wide, slightly flared sleeves can also be present in the dress that the mother of the bride chooses for herself. Ruffles and knits that fit the figure require care.

Moms who want to create a bright look can afford a dress with rhinestones. The main thing is not to get carried away too much, because you cannot overshadow the image of the bride.

We advise you to look at fashionable dresses in large sizes and summer evening dresses for full ones.

Styles for slim mothers

The situation is much simpler with skinny mothers of brides, who by nature have a slender figure.

Let’s start with a dress with a fitted silhouette without seams and a length, to the floor or reaching the knee.

The shape of the neckline is determined by your preferences and characteristics of the chest.

If you look so young that being next to your daughter you look more like a friend than a mother, then feel free to choose straps and a deep neckline.If the latter options give you a large share of stiffness and inconvenience, then perhaps the option with a half-closed neckline or the illusion of a revealing neckline will be more convenient for you. An openwork bolero will add modesty alongside.

Greek style

No less elegant will be the Greek models or the Empire style.A high waist with a draped bodice accentuates the chest, while a loose skirt allows for free movement.

If you want to know the nuances of choosing the elements of the image, read the article about the choice of an evening dress in the Greek style.

Mermaid

In addition to the straight cut, you can pay attention to the mermaid, if the evening is held in an official, calm atmosphere. The design options are different. You can choose a fluffy skirt or slightly flared at the knees. Let’s say a small train. If desired, you can cover your hands with a shawl or bolero.

It is worth noting that comfort can bring self-esteem, unshakable confidence, and a positive attitude from the people around you. A good image adds self-confidence, and the whole course of the wedding celebration largely depends on this.

Color

The color of the dress is not the last item that requires attention to itself.

The color chosen by the bride for her outfit is taboo not only for the mother, but for all the guests. Black and white also cannot be the main ones in an outfit, but additional, shading or for a combination in a color block – easily.

There are shades that you can choose without paying attention to hair color and skin tone – blue and purple, as well as all their shades. Take at least blue, its palette is limitless: azure, cornflower blue, lilac, blue, indigo, purple, aquamarine and even lavender. Each shade has a grain of nobility. It is simply impossible not to make your choice.

Care should be taken with green and yellow as they can have the opposite effect to what you would expect.Calm shades will be appropriate in any festive outfit.

The combination of gold and black can be festive, but bring bombast into the image. In this case, a look from the side does not hurt.

Supplementing the image

Details of the image can add to it or completely spoil it. To prevent the latter from happening, you can repeat the hairstyle for the bride’s mother from the image of the bride herself. It will look nice and even cute.

The choice of makeup is influenced by the color of the hair and the shade of the eyes, as well as the main color of the dress. Manicure – well, where can you go without it, especially since you, as the mother of the bride, will also be in the center of events. The color of the varnish can be neutral.

In pursuit of the beauty of shoes, their convenience is completely forgotten.And this is wrong. The heel can be medium or small. At the end of the evening, you will thank yourself for this decision.

Expensive jewelry, family values ​​or relics are well suited for women of advanced age. Add a small purse, it will definitely come in handy.

    Equally important is the convenience of the chosen model. The mother of the bride dressed in it should not feel the slightest discomfort.
  4. A properly chosen dress should not distract attention from the bride, therefore extravagant, open and defiant styles have no place at a wedding , no matter how stunning a figure the future mother-in-law has.Age should be taken into account. A dress that a woman can wear at 30 is clearly not suitable for an older lady. First of all, you need to look through various thematic magazines, for example, about choosing a dress style for women 50 years old.
  5. A festive image should take into account what time of year the wedding is scheduled for: based on this, they choose not only the style, but also the fabric of the future toilet. All those present at the wedding should be dressed for the season: do not choke from the heat and not shiver from the cold.

You should buy a toilet either in a good store or through a trusted Internet resource with an impeccable reputation.

In addition to general requirements, there are also a lot of all kinds of nuances concerning the characteristics of the physique and individual preferences of a lady choosing a beautiful evening dress for a woman of 40 years.

Well-proportioned women may like the suit, but this is not the best solution. Modern fashion does not welcome rigid frames and is able to please with a charming staple outfit or an airy chiffon dress for women of 50 years old.

There is a special wedding superstition that forbids the bride, her mother and girlfriends to appear at the wedding in separate outfits (suits or dresses with a bodice), as this portends the imminent divorce of the newlyweds.

All of them are instructed to wear only a one-piece outfit. For those who listen to superstition, it is better to prefer a dress. For those who like to emphasize their dignity, but are afraid of the possible imperfection of the figure, you can choose a slimming underwear for a tight-fitting dress. Ladies who ignore omens may well opt for a stylish suit that can decorate its owner no worse than a dress.

How to choose an evening dress for a wedding: color, style, fit

The whole variety of female figures can be conditionally reduced to five basic types.Remember! An expensive evening dress does not guarantee that you will feel good in it. In order for a dress to emphasize the most advantageous aspects of its appearance, it is necessary to know what type of figure it is matched to.

  1. Lucky women, endowed with a silhouette resembling an hourglass, may not think too much about choosing the right model of clothes: everything suits them. Only toilets that are too heavy or have a very wide belt should be avoided.How to tie a belt with two rings should be read separately.
  2. For figures like an inverted triangle, outfits that have an overly lush and bright finish on their upper part are categorically unsuitable. To balance the silhouette, it is necessary to shift the emphasis to the lower part of them, in this case it is worth paying attention to the models equipped with ruffles, intricately tailored skirts with flounces, decorated with rhinestones and spectacular inserts, or having pleated draperies.Well-chosen bright shoes will only enhance the achieved effect.
  3. Holders of rectangle-type figures should exclude from their wardrobe outfits made of fine fabrics. They should not use tight belts or straps. Also, long chiffon dresses will not work for you. Dresses designed for a rectangular silhouette should have accents that draw attention to the chest and hips. It is better to equip them with skirts like the sun or tulip. The material should be dense, keeping its shape well.
  4. Women with pear-shaped figures will be adorned with dresses that balance the narrow chest and lush hips. Fashion designers either darken the lower part of such outfits, or richly decorate the upper part of them. Toilets equipped with sleeves in the form of lanterns, voluminous shoulder pads or puffy collars that balance the proportions of the body are a very good choice for such figures.
  5. Owners of apple-type figures need to visually lengthen their silhouette. Styles with V-necks, high collars and vertical pleats will perfectly cope with this purpose.

    Overly long and very short skirts should be abandoned. The average length is considered optimal. Vertical stripes can also help create a lengthened silhouette. In no case should you choose toilets that are tight-fitting and equipped with a belt at the waist.

Most often, the owners of figures such as “apple”, “pear” or rectangle are fat, although in the presence of hormonal problems a representative of any type can get fat.

Ideal cut: what an elegant dress for a mother-daughter should be

A properly selected toilet should correspond to the age and social status of its owner : an overly open or too short dress on the mother of the bride will look defiant and inappropriate.

An overly closed outfit is just as inappropriate at a wedding. It will be better if the mother of the bride opts for the classic version, choosing an evening dress or a cocktail dress.

What mums should avoid

Their toilets should not be overly tight.

Shapeless robes, making an outstanding figure even more voluminous, are also categorically contraindicated.

Models with a lot of ruffles and small details should be avoided.

Thin jersey of poor quality, tight-fitting and poorly holding the shape, not suitable for an outfit of a full lady. But products from expensive knitwear can only be welcomed.

Optimal for corpulent ladies

What styles are able to favorably emphasize all the advantages of magnificent forms:

  1. An excellent option are toilets with a trapezoidal silhouette, and each additional centimeter of length will visually stretch the figure, making it slimmer. In this case, the rule applies: the longer the outfit, the slimmer its owner.
  2. To divert attention from plump hips, it is better to choose a dress with a loose-fitting skirt. Beauties with shapes should pay attention to long dresses in the Greek style or in the Empire style. Such models solve several important tasks at once: they visually stretch the silhouette, lengthen the legs, and also hide the rounded outlines of a full tummy and massive hips. The high waistline makes the figure more graceful and mysterious, and the wide belt located under the voluminous bust emphasizes its beauty. A loose skirt that widens downwards, falling in soft folds, does not hinder movement and makes the outfit not only very beautiful, but also as comfortable as possible.
  3. Women who have managed to maintain a slim waist can opt for a model with a fitted silhouette and a soft belt. The vertical pleats of the slightly flared skirt will accentuate this feature of the figure. You can complement the dress with guipure.
  4. The mother of the bride with a beautiful bust can choose a low-cut version of the evening dress. Of course, the neckline should be quite graceful and modest.
  5. If the future mother-in-law is ashamed of the fullness of her arms, she can always cover them with the sleeve of a dress, cardigan or jacket. For the same purpose, you can use a stole, a light transparent scarf or an openwork shawl. An elegant bolero can be an excellent option to complement an evening dress.

Choosing a suitable color scheme

First, let’s mark the colors that have no place at the wedding celebration :

  • Neither mothers of newlyweds nor bridesmaids should wear dresses of all shades of ivory, champagne, and also white: this is the privilege of the bride.It is she who should be the brightest and most elegant on this day.
  • Black toilets are equally unacceptable, as in our cultural tradition it is considered the color of mourning. The black toilet on the bride’s mother can be regarded by others as a sign that the future mother-in-law has a negative attitude towards her daughter’s choice and does not want this wedding. An exception can be considered cases when the black color of the toilet is served in combination with other colors and makes its owner very slim.
  • At a wedding, dress with too intense and flashy colors should be avoided; they are perfect for other occasions.

And now let’s talk about the colors that are ideal for the dress of the mother of the bride . She can opt for a dress:

  • All shades of blue. A blue floor-length dress will look extraordinary. Aqua, cornflower blue, sky blue, indigo, turquoise, ultramarine – anyone is suitable for the wedding dress of the future mother-in-law.
  • All shades of green. The color of mint, fresh grass, light green, marsh – the choice is very wide.An emerald-colored dress will look especially expensive.
  • Pastel colors. Evening dresses of peach, lavender, silver, beige, lavender, light gray colors are in great demand. Here, however, a reservation should be made. Pastel colors are not always appropriate in relation to full ladies. It is better for them to prefer darker colored toilets.
  • Wine-colored dresses (marsala) will look profitable and rich.

Some brides’ mothers change during the day. At the marriage registration ceremony, they are present in pastel-colored attire, and in the evening they dress in an evening dress of a more intense color.

It will be nice if the bride’s mother’s toilet will be in harmony with the spouse’s costume. To do this, it is quite enough to choose a shirt or tie to match her dress.

Mothers of the bride and groom must dress up in dresses of different colors: this is a prerequisite.

It used to be that a full-figure party dress should be made only of dense material. Modern cutting technologies and trends that allow combining completely diverse materials are fundamentally changing this idea. We strongly recommend that you familiarize yourself with the models of dresses from Belarusian manufacturers.

Light chiffon, natural silk, and dense satin are suitable for the outfit of the future mother-in-law with curvaceous forms. Guipure and lace inserts will help create a truly royal and unforgettable look.

Final touches: complement the look with stylish accessories

When choosing accessories for the outfit of the mother of the bride, it is necessary to show considerable taste and restraint. It is not at all necessary to show guests at the wedding the entire arsenal of jewelry stored in the box.

Jewelry or bijouterie must be in harmony with the style of evening dress. For women with a beautiful neck, it is better to choose earrings in the form of graceful pendants.

The fashion for headsets consisting of jewelry made in the same style has long passed. Modern women of fashion know that small earrings perfectly complement a heavy necklace, and an enlarged bracelet is incompatible with massive rings.

The best choice for a daughter’s wedding is family jewels, passed down from generation to generation.

An indispensable attribute of a woman’s image is a handbag: it contains items that every woman needs in order to put herself in order from time to time.

A good choice for a wedding is a clutch bag or a small cocktail bag : they are quite capable of holding all the little things you need.

Of no small importance is the choice of footwear, which should be not only beautiful, but also comfortable.The mother of the bride should refuse stilettos and prefer shoes with a stable, medium-height heel. Do not buy shoes that are too bright and attract attention.

Shoes in silver or beige. So that the shoes do not cause discomfort, it is recommended to spread them a little, walking around in them for at least a couple of days before the wedding.

According to the latest fashion trends, no strict matching is required in the color of shoes and handbags.

For women with corpulent forms, lace suits even more than for slender beauties

An asymmetric skirt will make the image mysterious and at the same time will not hinder the movements of the mother

For a luxurious woman – the best outfit

Father of the bride at the wedding

For any father, the marriage of his beloved daughter is a whole ordeal. In addition to the inevitable financial investments, parents at their daughter’s wedding are worried about her future, worried about relationships in a new family.But at the same time, they feel legitimate pride in the beautiful bride. Traditionally, the role of the father on this solemn day is very responsible, he performs several important duties:

  • leads the happy bride to the altar, giving her hand to her husband. This custom came to Russia from the West and quickly gained popularity. It symbolizes the transfer of responsibility for the health, safety and life of a girl to her new husband. From that moment on, the responsibility to protect his family falls on the shoulders of the groom.Of course, in the modern world, the original meaning is not relevant for a long time. But the ceremony itself, when the bride solemnly walks to the altar with a proud father along a path strewn with flowers, looks amazingly romantic and touching;
  • Dad opens the dance tour with the bride at the wedding. This first dance symbolizes the farewell of the family to the daughter. Exciting, full of tenderness and love, he is especially touching. After the end of the dance, the father hands over his daughter’s hand to the groom, which, according to an old custom, completes the rite of the child’s departure to a new family life.

These are the main responsibilities of a father at a daughter’s wedding. But, of course, they can be arbitrarily supplemented and changed. Indeed, on this day, the main thing is for everyone to feel happy and carefree. You can arrange funny contests with parents in the lead role, or come up with an original scene with a formidable dad who tests the groom before handing him his pet.

Matching styles

To decide on the style, you need to soberly evaluate your figure

Choose a dress so as to best highlight the merits and divert attention from the existing shortcomings.

Do not wear an outfit with a skirt that is too short.Optimal length – at least to the knee or even on the palm below

Floor-length maxi dresses look very elegant, but then the cut should be the simplest, and the color should be muted and dim, so as not to distract attention from the bride

Choose models with a strict, simple cut from noble fabrics. Take a closer look at dense natural silk, linen, satin, velvet, taffeta.

When looking for a dress, one should take into account the season and the nuances of the ceremony.

  • Church wedding dictates a certain amount of conservatism and restraint in dress.
  • For a summer wedding in nature, outfits of pastel colors made of light fabrics are appropriate. Discard the massive artsy jewelry and the same costume jewelry.
  • A wedding in a park or city garden prioritizes convenience and comfort. Don’t wear anything too elaborate or richly decorated. Take a closer look at casual styles.
  • If the ceremony is in the morning, discard everything pretentious and dark. Such an outfit, combined with jewelry made of natural metals and stones, will be appropriate in the evening.Choose light-colored midi dresses in the morning and afternoon. Elegant jewelry of famous brands will complement the image.
  • A themed wedding requires a special approach, when recommendations on clothing are specifically given in the invitations. The future mother-in-law should not wear a carnival costume, leave it to the youth. It is better if any one accessory matches the theme. Choose a hat, jewelry, cape, gloves that reflect the theme of the event.

Look incomplete without the right shoes.High-heeled shoes are required. Of course, not a tall thin stiletto heel, but a neat heel 3-5 cm high. The figure will immediately become visually more slender and fit.

Dress with a wide pleated skirt

With regard to specific recommendations, the massive broad shoulders can be hidden under a cape or bolero. A wide pleated skirt will balance the proportions.

Empire style dresses

Excess weight in the abdomen and hips will hide the trapezoidal cut and Empire-style dresses with a high waist.

Dresses with a tulip skirt

For those whose waist is not clearly expressed with proportional shoulders and hips, models made of dense fabric with a clear silhouette are suitable. Take a closer look at dresses with a tulip skirt.

With chest trim

Too wide hips will be distracted by the trim in the chest and shoulder line. For example, a voluminous collar with an unusual shape or a lace trimmed neckline

It’s good if the skirt is a couple of tones darker than the top.

Lace dress

If you want a special dress that would be different from others, you can take a closer look at a delicate lace dress, as in the photo. This is always a winning option!

What outfit the bride can choose for the second wedding

The choice of attire for the second marriage is as great as for the first celebration. The bride has the right to choose absolutely any dress for the second wedding, without limiting desires, tastes, imagination. Perhaps the girl will want to realize unfulfilled desires from the first celebration or try a completely new image.The bride at her second wedding will look great in both a trouser suit and an antique-style dress.

Dress

For many girls, a wedding dress is a childhood dream. As a little girl, they represent a wedding dress: style, color, decor. But not all dreams come true, sometimes a wedding dress “from childhood” remains an unrealized goal. In this case, the second wedding can be a chance to fulfill a long-standing wish.

Stylists are advised to choose a wedding dress for a second marriage in a more restrained style.As a rule, a girl enters into a second marriage at a more mature age, therefore a corset embroidered with crystals, a tulle skirt does not look age-appropriate. The outfit of a flowing silhouette with lace will look much more interesting on a girl. Expensive fabric, restrained beauty are the main companions of the bride, who goes down the aisle again. Add to the look long earrings with rhinestones, light sandals with steady heels – a modern look is ready.

If, nevertheless, you want a bright, beautiful celebration with a long dress, then take a closer look at the options from expensive fabrics.Synthetics, artificial shine do not spoil only youthful beauty, but the second wedding will show bad taste. Silk, satin, Italian, Spanish lace, dense textures, impeccable cut will create the right image, adding sophistication to the image, giving the status of not a princess, but a queen.

Mini dress

An interesting option for a second marriage is a mini dress. The power of tradition requires a long, chaste dress from the newly-made bride, other options look inappropriate for the first time, so the second time the girl can afford a touch of mischief.

A fluffy short skirt will decorate slender legs, make them longer. Add high-heeled shoes with hidden platform to make the perfect figure stand out more.

It is important to understand that the mini has its limit. You should not choose the shortest skirt available in wedding salons.

Remember, celebration means dancing, hugging, active contests. So that a skirt that is too short does not cause embarrassing situations, we recommend buying it with a friend or close relative.Move around, try to dance, imagine that you are hugging a person lower or higher than you, how does the skirt behave, does it rise too high?

Stylists claim that short dresses for brides look spectacular on girls of short stature: the mini-dress looks cute, it visually adds height, visually stretching the silhouette. In turn, tall girls should not buy tight-fitting short dresses: the mini looks scanty on them, sloppy, shortening the proportions of the body, making the image cheaper.

Suit

A suit will be a stylish option for the second celebration. A trouser or skirt suit will suit a young and older bride. An ivory suit made of dense expensive fabric will emphasize the dignity of the figure: leg length, thin waist, beautiful shoulder line, posture.

Loose-fitting suits are now in vogue. Light oversize, laconic design without unnecessary decorative elements will make your look stylish. You should not choose trendy options with culottes or asymmetrical skirts, the fashion for these things is fleeting.For a wedding, we recommend choosing a classic dress code: a jacket or blazer, a mid-length straight skirt or straight trousers with an arrow.

Top and skirt

The option of a light top in the form of a shirt, blouse, T-shirt, top and summer skirt will appeal to a bride whose wedding ceremony will take place in nature or in a small cafe for a narrow circle of guests. A more casual outfit looks appropriate if the groom chose light linen trousers and a cotton shirt.

Summer wedding look is complemented by a straw hat and wicker wedge sandals.In addition, a stylish bow will turn out with a narrow high skirt and a crop top with wide straps, as in the latest Dolce & Gabbana shows.

Check out the great looks with top and skirt for your second wedding in the photos from these collections.

If the wedding is supposed to be in a loft, country, Provence or any other narrow theme style – a classic evening dress is excluded.Here, pastel colors and natural fabrics again act as a reference point, and in a more free embodiment – a blouse and a skirt, a trouser suit.

How to dress for the wedding of the groom’s mother in winter, so that it is comfortable? Must be included in your wardrobe:

  • fur stole;
  • openwork scarf;
  • dress with jacket or smart jacket

– anything you want, as long as it is warm and comfortable, but so that if necessary, for example, in a banquet hall, you can slightly lighten the wardrobe without sacrificing beauty.

Selection rules

A wedding is an exciting event in the life of newlyweds and their parents.

It is important that the whole event is perfect and leaves only pleasant and exciting memories.

All attention on this day will be focused not only on the bride and groom, guests will congratulate their parents on this important day. On this festive day, mothers of the bride and groom should look impeccable.

Fabric

Dress fabric must be appropriate for the season.In the warm season, it is better to choose it from light flowing fabrics that will favorably emphasize the figure. This can be a dress made of silk, chiffon, or fine cotton. You can complement the outfit with embroidery or lace. It is worth choosing fabrics that will not wrinkle much, since parents will have to move a lot on this day. Wrinkled folds and creases on the dress will not add attractiveness to the image.

If the wedding will take place in the cold season, you should choose an ensemble of wool, velvet or brocade

It is worth paying attention to the costume.It can be a trouser suit or a set consisting of a dress and a jacket.

The second option is more preferable, since there is a sign that the outfit should not be torn so that the new family does not torn apart.

Colors

When choosing a shade for a wedding dress, it is important to find the best option. It is better to choose an outfit based on the woman’s color type, which depends on the color of the eyes, hair and skin tone.

Many designers recommend that ladies with fair skin and hair, which belong to the spring and summer color type, give preference to pastel colors in clothes.Ladies with an autumn and winter type of appearance should choose a suit of more saturated shades and bright colors that will favorably emphasize their bright appearance.

When choosing a color, it is important not to overdo it. One ensemble must contain up to three different colors

In this case, the shades should be saturated, but not flashy.

Many do not know how appropriate a mother’s outfit for the wedding of a son or daughter in black or white. Experts believe that these colors are undesirable as an outfit for the parents of the bride or groom, because they are present in the clothes of the newlyweds.A white dress on this day is the prerogative of the bride, and a completely black suit will look gloomy. The combination of black and white will also not be a winning option, as the outfit will look very formal. If the choice fell on such colors, it is better to decorate it with additional bright accessories.

An outfit with sequins and rhinestones that is too bright may seem vulgar, so it is better to choose an ensemble in pastel colors and dilute it with accents in the form of a bright scarf, belt and other accessories.

The outfit should be not only beautiful, but also comfortable, because mothers on this day will have to drive in the car, participate in fun contests and dance. The costume should emphasize the woman’s dignity, but at the same time hide the flaws.

Dress length

The choice of length should also be approached responsibly. You should not choose the mini option, even if the woman has ideal proportions. The optimal length of the outfit is midi to the knee or slightly below. Although a long dress to the floor looks very beautiful and elegant, such an outfit can be uncomfortable.According to etiquette, it is better to choose the length of the dress below the knee. A nice dress with a comfortable jacket would be a good option. The length of the sleeves may vary, but it is better to choose an outfit according to the season. In cold weather, a jacket will be very useful, on a hot day you can take it off.

Do not choose dresses with an open back or too revealing a bust. If the choice fell on this option, it is better to purchase a beautiful openwork shawl or bolero. An openwork jacket with a short sleeve or ¾ length can be a good choice.If a themed wedding is being held, then the outfit of the parents should correspond to the theme of the event. It is worth discussing everything with the newlyweds in advance so that the outfit matches the dress code.

Secrets of the image: a few tips

When choosing a dress, be sure to consider in what style the wedding will be held.

Otherwise, you will look like a black sheep in wedding photos.

Do not get carried away with flashy colors, do not choose solid white or black outfits, but if you still dare to wear such an evening dress, be sure to add a few bright details.For example, “revive” black color with a white or colored insert made of lace, guipure. At least stylists are advised to do just that.

Carefully study the style of the evening dress you like, make sure that it suits your figure: it will hide flaws, emphasize its advantages. You should feel as comfortable in the decoration as possible, think only about the celebration, and not about whether something is skewed in the outfit or if excess is not peeking out from somewhere.

Do not in any way strive to look very defiant, because the focus should not be on the screaming outfit of the mother, but on the dazzling beauty of the bride, the refined austerity of the groom’s suit.

Fashion footwear and accessories

Choosing clothes for a wedding, you need to think about shoes, jewelry, additional accessories, hairstyle, make-up.

  • It is better to choose comfortable shoes, because you have to spend most of the day on your feet, first collecting the bride, then in the registry office, dancing in the evening. Shoes should have a small, stable heel. Carry out your shoes in advance so that on the day of the wedding, it does not rub your calluses and ruin your mood, holiday.
  • Jewelry. A pearl necklace and matte beads will look perfect. But if the daughter has a pearl necklace, then the mother is not recommended to wear a similar one. Don’t buy overly bright, shiny jewelry.
  • Accessories. Take care of your purse: it is best to choose a clutch, in which you will always have a mirror, a handkerchief, and other necessary little things at hand.
  • Choose a hairstyle based on hair length, face shape and personal preferences.
  • Makeup.Normal daytime or natural evening makeup is fine. It is better not to do it defiant and flamboyant.

There is always more attention to parents and newlyweds, you will be in full view of the guests all day. Therefore, when choosing accessories and jewelry, it is worth considering that everything should look harmonious.

How to sew a wedding dress? Where to begin? Let’s figure it out.

Selection of style and selection of model

How to sew a wedding dress? Where to begin? Let’s figure it out. The first stage of sewing a dress begins with the selection of the style. Here it is worth focusing, first of all, on the features of the figure.The outfit should not emphasize her flaws, but, on the contrary, hide them.

In a selection of styles will help:

magazines, catalogs, as well as the Internet, where articles with illustrations of models of wedding dresses are presented; special programs for a computer that allow you to “try on” a dress for yourself; salons of wedding dresses. After all, no money is taken for fitting. When choosing this option, it is best to take a mom or girlfriend who will not flatter and try to please.

It is better to combine several methods when choosing.When trying on in the salon, if there is an opportunity, it would be an excellent option to take photographs, so it will be easier to make sketches of wedding dresses.

Also, when choosing the style of an outfit, the following nuances must be taken into account:

owners of a lush chest should not choose models with a large neckline for a wedding celebration, in addition, there is no need to decorate the outfit with large lace or voluminous frills. Do not give preference to a bustier dress in your choice; for a girl with small breasts, outfits of an asymmetric cut, a bustier are suitable.You can also opt for a greek-style outfit.

A good option would be to choose a dress in the Greek style or a straight cut outfit; a lady with an hourglass figure will look great in a mermaid model.

These few tips will allow any girl to choose a style of outfit for her figure in order to favorably emphasize her dignity and sew an outfit for the main celebration in her own life. When the style of the outfit is chosen, you need to move on to the second stage – this is the selection of fabrics, accessories and decorations for the dress.

Select fabric

This is one of the difficult processes, as the stores have a wide range of materials, both in color and texture. Beginners should opt for simpler fabrics to sew. For example, a shiny satin would be best combined with a matte fabric. It should be borne in mind that lace is combined with any materials.

Creating a pattern for a dress

The pattern for your own wedding dress must be clearly constructed and fit the bride’s size.

Taking measurements is a mandatory step. The bride herself cannot cope with him alone. For different styles of outfits, different measurements are needed, but the main ones, which you cannot do without, are the girth of the waist, hips, chest, as well as the length of the sleeve, dress. When all measurements are taken, you can proceed to creating a pattern.

Drawing a pattern can be made easier by finding a dress that is similar to the one you want to recreate with the finished pattern. It will just need to be translated. Patterns of wedding dresses are in many thematic magazines.This will require a carbon copy, a thick sheet of paper or wallpaper and a pencil.

But if there is no suitable pattern, then you can make it yourself. Begins this process by creating a basic pattern, substituting its dimensions.

Initially, a base mesh is created, and then you should be guided by the formulas and draw points, connecting them with lines. It is with these lines that the undercuts, neckline, armhole, waist area and, of course, length will be formed.

After the drawing is created on paper, it needs to be transferred to the fabric and cut out.

Sewing dress

Sewing a dress is actually the last step on the way to its creation, which includes several stages:

Connect all the cut out parts together with a basting seam. Try on the dress. Here you should resort to the help of your mother or friend and ask them to remove all inaccuracies when sewing. In the language of seamstresses, “fit”. Sew the “fitted” version on a sewing machine.

Final stage

Despite the fact that the bride has repeatedly tried on a bent dress, the final version is the result that the needlewoman was striving for in order to surprise everyone with her exquisite and unique outfit.At this stage, the last fitting and decoration of the fabric with additional elements takes place. At this stage, you can invite friends and relatives to visit, who will help evaluate the result.

The dress is ready – now you can go to the registry office and celebrate the main day in life.

The dress, which was created with your own hands, will undoubtedly differ favorably from those presented for selection in salon stores. It will surprise everyone present.
