The marriage of a son is a special occasion for the Mother of the Groom, one that requires a certain style Mother of the Groom dresses. A dress that portrays both elegance and motherly charm, but unfortunately when it comes to searching for Mother of the Groom dresses many women feel that the Mother of the Groom has been all but forgotten, because there are so many advertisements catering to Mother of the Bride dresses and bridesmaids dresses. Don’t let that get you down. When you begin searching for your Mother of the Groom dresses following these 4 easy steps will ensure that you find the perfect dress to suit the occasion.

Step #1: Choosing Your Color

Choosing the color of your Mother of the Groom dresses is a great place to start. At weddings there are always many photographs taken and as Mother of the Groom you will be featured in most of them. Here are the factors to consider when selecting the color for you:

  • What colors has the Bride chosen for her bridesmaids?
  • Choose a color that suits your skin tone
  • Be sure it is a color that you feel comfortable and confident in

Step #2: Selecting Your Style

When choosing the style of your Mother of the Groom dresses, although season and type of venue may play a part, selecting a classic style will be suitable for any occasion. Many mothers like to take the opportunity to get dressed up with an elegant hat, matching bag and shoes and this is the perfect occasion to do so. The great thing about classic lines is that they never go out of fashion. You will be sure to look stylish and elegant in your choice of dress and you will be able to wear this dress again in the future if you choose to. A light jacket will finish off the outfit nicely and you will be prepared for any drops in temperature or air conditioning turned down too low which can often be the case.

Step #3: Know Your Size

If you are not already certain of your dress size, be sure to get yourself measured up. Buying your dress ahead of time is best because you can always have any alterations made by a local dressmaker to ensure a perfect fit.

Step #4: Making your Purchase

Now that you know the color, style and size searching for your Mother of the Groom dresses will be easy. If you are someone who likes to look around a bit before making your final choice, be sure to make a note of the dresses you see that you like so that you can find them again. However, by now you will most likely know the dress for you instantly when you see it, so go ahead and make your purchase so that you can sit back, relax and enjoy the upcoming event…Your son’s marriage!

And why not let everyone know just how proud you are, by treating yourself to a Mother of the Groom T-shirt, tote bag, jersey or apron?

    Hi and thanks for stopping by my blog when I posted how I found the perfect mother-of-the-groom dress. Got it at JCPenney for half price so I was thrilled. I think that I looked good, too! It is a pale aquamarine with beading and sequins on the jacket. You can see a photo of it at I am the one not wearing the bridal gown!

    Hi Dianne. If you want your dress to correspond to what the Mother of the Bride is wearing great then choose any shade of green. Blue will also compliment her green dress. However, do not feel obligated to choose your color based on he outfit unless the Bride has specifically requested it!
