If you are considering wearing a pant suit instead of Mother of the Groom dresses, it is an excellent idea. Although, most Mother’s do opt for dresses and skirts it is true, if you are a woman who likes to wear trousers, you must go for it, you will look great.

I have found this lovely silver gray chiffon pant suit as an example of how elegant and stylish a pant suit that you might consider for your son’s wedding can look.

Who says pants aren’t feminine on a woman? This would be a fantastic choice if you prefer pants to Mother of the Bride dresses. The color, the fabric, everything is just right. Some attractive jewelry would finish off the look beautifully, perhaps something more on the large side, but if that is not your style, then whatever you prefer will look just super.

Take a look round the stores and see what other pant suits you might find. They have the added advantage of being elegant, yet versatile and wonderfully comfortable too!

Customized Mother of the Groom dresses are an excellent choice for something different and unique for the occasion. If you like to wear natural fibres and are looking for something spontaneous, I think these gorgeous dresses might be of interest to you.

I found them at an online store called Eshakti and what is fantastic about this store is that you can have your dress made to your own requirements with very little extra cost.

Add customizing for a little as $7.50

These stunning embroidered embellishments of birds, hearts or butterflies can be added to whichever dress style you choose, in whichever color and they have plenty to choose from.

And that’s not all, because you can have these dresses tailored exactly to fit your body size and shape all for under $70.

Obviously, these styles and fabrics are more suited to daytime, outdoor weddings, but perhaps that is just what your son and daughter in law have planned and you can have one of these cute little numbers made up to your exact measurements and design preferences to show just how exceptional Mother of the Groom dresses for summer can look.

Below is only a tiny sampling of what they have to choose from on their website and take any of the designs and customize to your hearts delight with embroidery, frills etc.

Shopping for Mother of the Groom dresses for fall is an exciting time. If you live in a climate that enjoys visible seasons, what a pleasure. You can co-ordinate your colors with the colors of fall if you wish. You will want to choose warmer, deeper, darker colors for this season usually and in richer textured fabrics that keep you warmer allowing for the drop in temperature.

Shawls and Jackets

Shawls and jackets are a must, to compliment your look. Either in the same fabric, or in a different fabric, but complimentary color. These can turn an outfit into something all the more elegant.


Suddenly, long sleeves, short sleeves, sleeveless and even three quarter sleeves are all an option to you, because whereas longer sleeves are just too hot for summer wear, they are perfect for fall and winter weddings.


Something else wonderful about Mother of the Groom dresses for fall are gloves. You can get away with gloves at any time of year it is true, but when the weather begins to cool down, that is really the best suited time to wear a pair of gloves with your outfit and they do turn any outfit into something very glamorous, not to mention keeping you warm.


Whereas in summer, one might turn more towards lighter and natural fabrics, in the fall heavier and darker will suit better. Navy blue, plum, maroon, chocolate, burnt orange, mulberry, evergreen, are just a few ideas for the sorts of colors you might go for. Just the sound of many of these colors brings a warm feeling to your soul and conjures up images of being curled up by a warm fire. Ice blue? Definitely not, but Royal blue, now we’re talking and I think you get the picture of the sort of colors to go for when looking for Mother of the Groom dresses for fall


Your choice of fabric will play a part in shopping for cooler climates naturally. Cotton and viscose or any other thin and flimsy fabric are best left for the warmer months of the year. Silk looks gorgeous and is warm, which makes is a good choice. Good quality taffeta or brocades. Chiffon is a good choice as it usually comes with a lining giving it more warmth. Taffeta, chiffon and satin are some of the most commonly used fabrics for wedding attire, and understandably so, as they do look and feel great. Jersey is another option you might like to consider, because it is soft to the touch, comfortable and warm at the same time.

Because most venues will have climate control these days and you are unlikely to have an outdoor wedding in the freezing cold (although if you do, be sure to be prepared for it!) most fabrics you choose will be suitable for the occasion. Often the heating in a venue can get too hot and stuffy with all the people crammed into one place. For this reason it is always better to have a jacket or shawl rather than your actual dress being too warm.

Enjoy your shopping and congratulations on the upcoming wedding. Take a look around the site for more inspiration and ideas.

With more and more online stores and boutiques catering specifically to plus size Mother of the Groom dresses, it is rather exciting what Mother’s can find to wear to their son’s weddings these days. No matter what your size, there is no need to sacrifice style.

I have been taking a look around on you behalf and have found some gorgeous choices from the Boncy Boutique plus size Mother of the Bride dresses range.

Take a look at this lovely A-line taffeta dress with halter neck and intricate beading detail. The color is fantastic and can go with a wide range of wedding theme colors, so it is unlikely that you need to worry about clashing. Being a strong color, it will go with most skin types too all the way from pale to darker skin tones. Another one of the things I really love about this dress too is that it shows off to advantage an ample breast, which is a feature for larger women to take advantage of and be proud of! Then the beading just below the breasts insinuates a much thinner waistline, giving a beautiful hourglass look. You really can’t go wrong with this dress as it is elegant, flattering and comes with a very reasonable price tag.


Taffeta Halter A-line with Beading        Chiffon V-neck A-line with Beading and Lace

Coming in a close second in the plus size Mother of the Bride or Groom dresses range, is this very attractive A-line chiffon dress with V-neck and lovely beading and lace detail on the upper bodice. This type of dress with neckline and detail on the top half draws attention towards your beautiful face and smile, with the lovely soft flowing fabric smoothing nicely over any bumps and bulges. The sleeves are not only strikingly beautiful, they also hide flabby upper arms, which are an annoyance to many of us! Again this rich color will go with practically any bridal theme. It gets a thumbs up from me.

These gorgeous dresses and more can be found at Boncy Boutique

Mother of the Groom Dresses for summer are a pleasure to shop for with abundant styles in stock to flatter every figure. Although some areas are hotter than others in summer, when it comes to dresses you are looking for the same thing, something comfortable, stylish, elegant and cool. Here are a couple of tips for finding the best Mother of the Groom Dresses for summer.

1.  Natural Fabric

The summer heat is gorgeous, I love it, but more so when you can put on your bathing suit and jump in the pool when it gets too hot. Not so during a wedding and even an outdoors venue can be incredibly hot if the breeze dies down. Natural fabrics allow you to perspire more freely and dry more quickly too, making them your best choice for Mother of the Groom Dresses for summer. Synthetic fabrics also tend to start to smell bad after a while and the last thing you want is to feel uncomfortable and worried that you are not smelling fresh. Rather choose something cool and natural from the start, especially is you tend to perspire rather heavily.

2.  Removable Layers

Although many might consider removable layers more important for winter wear, it is also an important consideration for summer wear too, because although the climate may be warm, it is not uncommon for the evenings to suddenly turn rather chilly or to find yourself indoors with the climate control just that little bit too cool. It is best to be prepared for all eventualities, which is why I suggest removable layers, which can be added or removed easily as the day progresses. The layers can often come in handy too if you find yourself in the direct sun during some part of the ceremony, because it is much better to be prepared and just cover yourself with your shawl or light jacket, rather than sit there suffering.

3.  Choose Lighter Colors

Although white is the color reserved for the Bride exclusively at a wedding, you may still choose something cool and light. Darker colors absorb the heat and if you will be out in the sun at all as in a daytime wedding, lighter colors will be much cooler. Minty green, ice blue, lilac and peach are a few light colors that go well at weddings, which you might like to consider.

4.  Hats

How often do you get the opportunity to wear a hat? Not just any hat, a stylish, elegant sort of ‘look at me, I am fit for the Royal Wedding’ sort of hat! It is summer and hats look so stunning with Mother of the Bride or Groom dresses, plus they look awesome in photos. I highly recommend choosing one for yourself to finish off your outfit to perfection. Far from being a frivolous addition to your wardrobe, what better way to shade yourself from the heat of the summer sun, than by wearing a hat with your Mother of the Groom Dresses for summer.
