Wedding season is upon us. Whether you’re the mother of the bride or the groom, you’ll find inspiration from this week’s readers who sent these fabulous photos.
Your son or daughter’s wedding day is your day to shine too. Choosing a figure flattering outfit in colors that bring out your best features is the key. For the wedding of her daughter, Julie wore this gorgeous ruched dress in a deep, beautiful midnight blue.
This dress complements Julie in every way possible. The cut is ideal for her body type, and the color of the dress is a nice match to Julie’s skin tone. This dress is stunning, Julie.

When considering mother of the bride outfits, your first thought is likely to be a dress. But many women don’t like dresses or just aren’t comfortable in a dress. For those women, dressy pants or a pantsuit are perfectly acceptable. Mother of the bride, Margy, chose a jacket and pants combination for her daughter’s California wedding.
She paired her lovely French silk brocade jacket with a pair of Dupioni silk pants. And to make her outfit even more special and memorable, she created it herself! Margy is a seamstress, and she put her master skills in action to create her MOB outfit. She used a Guy Laroche pattern for the jacket and a custom-designed pattern for the silk pants. So elegant, Margy.
For Megan’s daughter’s wedding in Queensland, Australia in May, she knew she wanted something a bit different from the usual MOB dresses. Although she didn’t have a specific vision in her head, she knew she would know “the one” when she saw it. Megan found the perfect dress while browsing online.
As it turned out, the dress Megan chose couldn’t have been more suitable. The weather was unseasonably warm for May in Australia, and Megan didn’t need a sweater that would have concealed parts of this pretty and delicate lace dress.
A mother of the bride dress should be attention grabbing without being too overly stated. For her daughter’s special day, California native Pamela chose a rich cobalt blue dress with an embellished waist. Pamela’s bold color choice was a perfect match for her silver heels and jewelry.
