A: If you are going to be at a wedding, you need to look your best for your Mother of the Bride occasion. Look sexy, dress up with confidence and show it! However, if you are going to be wearing your bridal gown in a garden wedding, you will want to be comfortable in it. A little extra planning will go a long way toward ensuring you have the perfect dress for your special day.
B: Avoid looking too sexy in your Mother of the dress. A sexy dress can lead to a lot of trouble on the big day. Wear something tasteful instead and make sure it is comfortable for you.
C: It is always wise to ask a friend if she knows a reliable dress maker. There is nothing like having a seamstress to help you choose the perfect dress. You can even give him a couple of your dresses in order to help him come up with a few ideas.
D: Try to avoid purchasing the wedding dress from your local bridal shop. This may seem like a bad idea but you may actually be better off buying your dress online.
E: Don’t go overboard in picking out your bride dress. It is the bride and the groom who are paying for the dress, so they deserve to get exactly what they want. This is your one chance to shine as a good, responsible woman.
F: When shopping for your wedding dress, avoid choosing a dress with too much flair. You don’t want to get everything for nothing, after all. Just think about it, you are going to be in your wedding dress with your mom, so it’s really nice to have a beautiful dress that you can both enjoy.
G: Never rush into getting your mother of the bride dress. It may be your favorite gown and you don’t want to let it go until your mother is happy with the dress you bought her, but there will be times when your mother will not be thrilled with the dress you are purchasing.
H: When picking out your wedding dress, always choose the size of your gown carefully. Don’t go for a gown that is too tight or too small because your mother may feel uncomfortable in it.
I: One of the most important things you can do to help ensure your mother of the bride dress has a great fit, is to wear it for awhile before it gets to your home. Soak it in hot tubs and put it on for a day or two before you put it on.
