Monday, February 11, 2013

So the big day is approaching, your daughter has bought her dream wedding dress and now it's time for you to think about getting your outfit but don't know where to start and what 'protocol' is these days?!

Consider the theme of the wedding
Think about the colour palette and style of the wedding. You don’t want to blend in but you also don’t want to clash terribly.

Consider the Bridesmaid and Mother of the Groom outfits
To ensure the all important wedding photographs are picture perfect, make sure your outfit doesn’t clash with the bridesmaids or the Mother of the Groom on the big day.

Make sure you are comfortable
Now is not the time for an entire new image! If you don't feel comfortable in heels, don't wear them! Find a gorgeous pair of flats. If you like to cover up your arms perhaps opt for a capped sleeve or a matching shrug or pashmina to match your outfit. Going too far out of your comfort zone will just lead to you feeling uncomfortable on the big day and thinking and fretting more about your outfit than the big event!

Consider headwear
You might be excited to have an excuse to wear a statement hat on your daughter’s special day or others dread it as they feel they just don't suit hats. There are no rules. Lots of mother of the brides don't wear hats these days, don't feel obliged! Maybe you would feel more comfortable option for a fascinator or jeweled slide?

Matching Accessories
There’s no need to match everything flawlessly – neutrals and nude colours are a brilliant solution when you can’t find the perfect colour match.

Try your dress on at home
Shopping for your outfit can be stressful! If in doubt pick a few of your favourite's and bring home to try on where you feel comfortable and can not only try on with suitable underwear solutions (for those pesky styles that require certain suck in knick's or push up bra's!) and team up with shoes etc. that you Alfred have You can always take the dress back if it isn’t ‘the one.’

Get a second opinion
Try your outfits on with a trusted friend or family member who can give you their honest opinion on each outfit choice... I'm sure the bride to be will give you her honest option. daughter's normally do! ;)
