Stunning Mother of the Bride Dresses for Spring & Summer Weddings
Flowers aren’t the only thing blooming this spring. There’s a whole bouquet of new dresses for the Mother of the Bride and Groom that are feminine, elegant, and modern. Here’s what makes them perfect for this time of year.
Light & Airy Fabrics
Warmer weather calls for lighter fabrics that are airy and breathable to beat the heat. Chiffon is a beautiful choice. Float down the aisle in a breezy gown that’s soft and sophisticated. Chiffon is also ideal for beach weddings since it photographs so well in the breeze giving an ethereal look.
There’s nothing more natural than floral dresses for a spring or summer wedding, and not just for guests! Many Mothers are choosing floral dresses to express their personalities and look stylish. Florals are fresh and modern, and an all-over floral is a great way to keep the eye moving, thereby camouflaging trouble spots.
Pastels & Brights
Black may be your go-to color, but pastels and bright colors bring a joyous vibe to a spring or summer wedding. Try soft pink, lavender, or icy mint green. Or go with a cheery clear, saturated bright like aquamarine or hot coral to light you up.
Warm Weather Styles
As some weddings move to outdoor settings, consider more shoulder-baring styles to keep you cool and looking stylish. Halter gowns with jeweled necklines dazzle and long, flowing off-the- shoulder dresses give you a regal look. Or try shorter knee-length, sleeveless styles with sequins and sparkle that will sparkle in the sun.
Breezy Evening Pants
Prefer to cover your legs in the summer but don’t want to wear a long gown? Flowy, wide-leg chiffon pants are trending and will keep you feeling relaxed and cool. Pair them with an elegant, lacy, wide-sleeve top in a light color for a romantic summer look.
Spring and Summer are beautiful times to be a Mother of the Bride or Groom. Choose a dress that is lightweight, colorful, and fresh and you will blossom!
