Headline: 5 things to remember if you are the mother of the bride

Your daughter's wedding day is a momentous occasion- both for her and for you. Make sure you enjoy it but also remember these useful tips.


Be guided by the bride

Be aware of your daughter's tastes and wishes. It is her day and whatever you choose to wear should complement her without outshining her. This should be easy!


Be aware of the bridesmaids outfits

Remember you do not have to match the bridesmaids but it is a good idea to know their colour scheme and make sure you don't clash with it before you press on and select your own outfit.


Keep in contact with the mother of the groom

You and the mother of your future son-in-law will both want to achieve the same look so it is good etiquette to remain in touch and swap notes about your outfits. You could even shop for them together to avoid any unnecessary duplication or embarrassment.


Aim for sophistication

Your daughter's wedding is a real opportunity to indulge yourself. Go for glamour and sophistication. Pamper yourself beforehand with plenty of hair and beauty treatments.


Plan ahead

This is not a day to leave anything to chance. Whilst there is no point starting preparations too early, and without all the details about the wedding theme, bridal outfit and colour scheme of the bridesmaids, make sure you don't leave it too late. An ideal time to start is 4 months before the special day. If you are interested in mother of the bride outfits then you may like to visit Charisma Fashions.
