Mother-Of-The-Bride: How To Achieve The 10/10 Look

Despite remaining at the sidelines, the mother-of-the-bride (or groom) plays a very important part in the special wedding of her child.  For example, the moment when the groom arrives with his mother on his arm is one that is cherished by all, and so a lot of focus is placed on the mother’s style for such an occasion. If you’re lucky enough to have either your son or daughter’s wedding coming up in 2018, then you’ll be searching for a beautiful dress to look the part.

In this post, we’ll tell you some of the requirements to follow if you want to achieve a mother-of-the-bride style that is a 10/10. From tradition and protocol to prints and colours that are hot for 2018. Here you will also discover the stunning designs from the new Pronovias Party Collection 2018.

All events have an established protocol and, although at weddings the protocol tends to be set by the bride and groom themselves, it is essential to follow some advice to achieve a perfect look that is the envy of the rest of the guests.

Generally, wedding protocol establishes that by day, the guest dress code consists of short party dresses or two pieces with trousers, however, the family and bridesmaid’s of the couple have the privilege of opting for short dresses.

For those women who like to show their legs, short designs in bold colours are the best mother-of-the-bride choice. Among the Pronovias designs highlighted below is a range of rose, coral and red tones. Choose between dresses that are adorned with rhinestones around the waist, sleeves and neckline such as the Grune or Giovana gowns, or discover pretty flowers on the neckline on the Giuliana, Gioconda and Glace designs, in addition to lace bodies or voluminous skirts.

If you are like to take risks with your style and prefer bold prints, choose a patterned gown that will allow you to feel unique. This Gavina design is a pretty, floral statement that will allow you to do just that. This dress is made in luxury mikado fabric, with three quarter-length sleeves and chimney neckline.

For lovers of long party dresses and evening wedding gowns, designs of this style are ideal. Firstly, the printed Garla dress has a draped body, drooping shoulders, a sexy V-neckline and exquisite waist detail. Secondly, the Gardenia gown has a colourful floral print on a white background, and can become a two piece with three quarter sleeve jacket, which is ideal if any of the wedding celebrations or photos take place outside.

As for the colours according to the trends of the season, the trendy tones are corals, roses, green shades and aubergine. When sewn in crepe fabrics, they lighten movement and fall on the body as if it were a second skin. Lace can be incorporated too, adding a touch of extra elegance for for an ethereal look. Below you’ll see more stunning designs in desirable colours, some with rhinestones, others with draped bodies or long sleeves.

You can opt for much more intense tones if the wedding is celebrated in the evening. A deep dark blue, for example, that is reminiscent of the night sky is a current favourite. We just love the Gracil, Gesta and Gento gowns, pictured below with pleated flared skirts, lace bodies and semitransparent sleeves.
