Finding Mother of the Groom dresses proves a challenge for most Mothers, but it may seem to those Mums seeking petite Mother of the Groom dresses that they have all but been forgotten with plus size ladies forming the majority of women these days. Many ladies clothing companies are creating lines especially focussed on plus size Mother of the Groom dresses and the like, forgetting it seems about all the lovely petite Mothers that are out there.

So I thought I would dedicate this blog post especially to those of you who are seeking petite Mother of the Groom dresses for their son’s wedding day.

I have found some lovely dresses in petit sizes at Sydney’s Closet. Here are a few that I personally liked. If you would like to explore further just click on any of the photos which will take you to the site where you can explore the entire range of petite Mother of the Bride and Groom dresses:

Here is a stunning Mother of the Groom outfit in lime green. Green is such a refreshing color and suits many skin types. It will go beautifully with any blue or green wedding theme, but that is not all, because with a few exceptions like yellow and orange you could wear this suit and look good against almost any color.

Coming in at just under $350 and in a gorgeous knit fabric this fully lined, 3 piece Mother of the Groom outfit fits nicely into the affordable price range.

What is really great about choosing a 3 piece Mother of the Groom outfit is that it is suitable for various temperatures. I often find that the air conditioning is too high or low for my liking, sometimes broken all together and with this style you are well prepared for either event.

The hat and purse really finish it off to perfection in my opinion, and although sold separately can be found at the same store. Click on the picture if you are interested in finding out more about this stunning outfit.

Selecting your Mother of the Groom outfits is a time for joy, not panic, so do not fret! Instead sit back and relax, let the ideas of the best Mother of the Groom outfits flow through your mind without forcing and cajoling and you will notice that this will give you more clarity.

Your choices are certainly many, but firstly ask yourself these two questions:

•    What colors do I look and feel best in?
•    What style clothes compliment my figure best and yet are most comfortable to wear?

With those answers fresh in your mind you can begin your search for Mother of the Groom outfits, online or by paging through magazines and catalogues, whether they be in the form of suits or dresses. It is about what suits your own personal sense of style.

Once you have a few ideas of the outfits you might like to wear it is time to ask yourself these three questions:

•    Will it go with what the Bridesmaids are wearing?
•    Will my daughter-in-law approve?
•    What is the Mother of the Bride wearing? (If she has not already got in touch with you it would be a good idea to have a chat with her at this stage to make sure your outfits co-ordinate)

For color charts and advice on how to match colors well to your skin as well as the overall theme of the wedding see What Color to Wear under Mother of the Groom Dresses.

When selecting the color of your Mother of the Groom dresses there are several factors that need to be considered. I have put together this list that will make your selection process easier:

1.    First and foremost check with the Bride to find out whether she has any specific ideas or preferences.
2.    Liaise with the Brides mother, because traditionally she chooses her dress first. It is also a great ice-breaker for the two of you to start communicating on a more personal level if you have not yet done so.
3.    Make sure you know what colors suit your complexion to get the best look in photographs. If you do not already know click here and read this article to find the best color for your Mother of the Groom dresses.
4.    Select a color for your Mother of the Groom dresses that co-ordinates and compliments well with what the rest of the bridal party are wearing. If you do not have a good idea of what colors go well together click here for a comprehensive list of what colors will look good together.

That’s it you are going to look fantastic and remember to bookmark this page in case you want to refer back to it in the future.

In this category we will explore some of the options available to you for Mother of the Groom hairstyles and I have found some great pictures too, which I hope will give you some ideas as to how you would like Mother of the Groom Hairstylesto style your hair on the day of your son’s wedding.

One of the most frequently asked questions by Mothers of the Groom is, “Must I have my hair done professionally at a salon?”

The answer really comes down to one of personal choice, but if your budget allows for it I highly recommend treating yourself to a salon hairdo, because you will not only look and feel great, but it will also add to the excitement of the whole occasion.

If you do choose to go to a salon and you do not have a regular hairdresser, I suggest having an appointment a couple of weeks prior, to test out the style you have chosen and make sure you like it, so there is plenty of time to change your mind if you don’t feel it suits you, or it doesn’t feel comfortable.

Using a virtual hairstylist can be a terrific way of getting an idea of how you might look with a new and unique style or color of hair. There are also many different hairstyles to choose from so that you can see which might go well with the Mother of the Groom dresses you have chosen for yourself. is a great example of a free service where you can either upload your own picture or use one of theirs which is similar to your face and then try on different celebrity hairstyles to find out which Mother of the Groom hairstyles will suit your face.

There are many different sites that offer this service and most of them are free, although some do require that you register with them. Doing a Google search for ‘virtual hairstyles’ will bring up several to choose from.

Please do share your thoughts by leaving a comment and perhaps you would even like to share a picture of the hairstyle you choose for yourself.

Best wishes finding the Mother of the Groom hairstyles that suit you best.

Are you wondering… “Which Mother of the Groom Dress Should I Choose?”

You are down to your final choice of Mother of the Groom dress and struggling to make up your mind over which one you should choose.

The more you agonize over which dress to choose the harder it becomes and when you finally decide to just choose one you then end up wondering if you made the right decision.

Take a load off! Give yourself a few days to sit back and relax. As soon as you relax your mind it will be easy to make the choice. In fact you won’t even have to make the choice it will come to you naturally and easily if you just step back long enough to let it happen.

I have gathered together some pictures of Mother of the Groom dresses for you to take a look at. I have made my comments on these and hope that it will help make your decision over which dress you choose easier for you. Please do feel free to share your thoughts and comments too!

This is a very elegant Mother of the Groom dress with matching jacket. I would have recommended a silver or blue purse instead of the one she is holding, but bar that this is a great look to aim for.


In this picture Mum has a great figure and I love the style of this dress, but you will find that black does not stand out like other colors especially in the photos. I highly recommend staying away from plain black. As I have said in the past… “You do want to stand out don’t you?”

by Darcie

A lot of ladies this age are wanting to hide their upper arms, but as you can see this Mother of the Groom looks lovely and very elegant in her strapless dress. Wonderfully summery too!

  by Dusty Smith

Now the truth about wearing black is that it is slimming and what is so perfect about this Mother of the Groom dress is that it has the advantage of being slimming, but the detail on the jacket and bodice will ensure she stands out in pictures, plus it draws attention away from any excess around the middle.

by Brian Harrington Spier

The Mother of the Groom in this picture looks simply stunning, such a shame that she blends right in with the Groomsmen. You always want to be sure to check the colors of the wedding party. If this outfit was even just a couple of shades darker imagine how much more beautiful it would look, because at first glance you almost mistake her for one of the guys in this picture don’t you? Then again perhaps that was the idea!!!

As always hoping that this helps you in making your final choice.

Best wishes.

What is a tea length dress?

A tea length dress is a dress where the hem falls below the knee, but above the ankle.

When is it appropriate for the Mother of the Groom to wear a tea length dress?

Mother of the Groom tea length dresses are the perfect choice for an informal or afternoon wedding. It is customary for the Mother of the Bride and the Mother of the Groom dresses to be the same length, so it is a good idea to liaise with the Mother of the Bride on length of dress before you make your purchase.

Having the Mothers dresses the same length gives the group photos a great sense of symmetry.

Can the Mother of the Groom wear a tea length dress to a formal wedding?

At a formal wedding it is customary for the Mothers dresses both to be floor length.

Here are some Mother of the Groom tea length dresses to give you some ideas. If you like any of them and wish to find out more details, simply click on the photo.

I love this dress! It is very elegant and the jacket really finishes it off nicely doesn’t it?

This beautiful chiffon dress is perfect, but I would not recommend it if you are conscious of having large hips as the layers may tend to make them look bigger.

This is a wonderful example of a classic tea length dress. I would choose a different color though as it is a bit too dark to wear as a Mother of the Groom dress, but if you click on the picture to go through to the webpage you will find that it comes in a great range of colors like ice blue, victorian rose and forest green to name but a few.

Soft and flowing, this style of tea length dress is also perfect for ladies with a larger figure as the design at the waist has a slimming effect. Pink may not be for everyone, but most of these dresses come in a huge selection of colors.

The first and third pictures are my personal favorites. Which do you prefer and why?

The prices of the dresses featured above range from $150 to $200, which is what you might expect to pay for a good quality dress of this type, but if you are on a tighter budget than that I recommend looking out for sales and special offers.

Best of luck in finding your perfect Mother of the Groom tea length dresses.

Many Mothers wonder what Mother of the Groom Songs are available and whether or not it is appropriate for them to choose one for their son at the wedding.

Yes, it is totally appropriate and very touching to have your very own Mother of the Groom songs, what a beautiful tribute to your son. Passing your idea past the Bride is always a wise decision in these matters, but most often she will be more than willing to include this tribute to her new husband.

I have added a couple of my personal favorites for you to take a look at. Perhaps you will choose to use one of these two songs, but my hope is that by watching the videos they will spur you on to finding your own perfect Mother of the Groom song.

Please leave your comments to let me know your thoughts about these songs and share with us all the song you decided to use in the end.

Best wishes.
