Top 5 Mother of the Bride Trends for 2023

A guaranteed way to look elegant and modern as the Mother of the Bride or Groom is to choose a time-honored style with a modern twist. Here’s what’s new and trending in Mother of the Bride/Groom dresses for 2023.


1. Wrap Styles

One of the most figure-flattering styles is the classic wrap dress. Wrap dresses sculpt your waist, enhance your bust and give you a curvy hourglass shape. This year we are seeing wrap-style dresses in bold, saturated pastels. These vibrant colors are warm and joyous, bringing life to your complexion and cheer to the wedding!




2. Sequins

There’s nothing more glamorous than some shimmer and sparkle, which is why sequin dresses are always popular. This year some beautiful new styles make it easier than ever to shine. Moms can choose from metallic cocktail party sheaths to head-to-toe sequins, sequins, and lace, or half sequins styles like a classic empire waist gown with a sequin bodice and elegant chiffon skirt.


3. Flirty Details

Ruffles, frills, and flounce are other popular trends. Look for loose, flowy bell and flutter sleeves, layered chiffon evening tops and dresses, and flirty ruffle hemlines. These feminine dresses are meant to move, so be sure to get on the dance floor and fly!


4. Floral Dresses

Florals are in the spotlight more than ever before. They’re a lively, feminine way to express your unique style and are perfect for casual weddings and outdoor garden ceremonies. Whether it’s a short floral dress, high-low midi, or full-length gown with floral embroidery or sequins, florals are romantic and modern in 2023.

5. Midi Hemlines

Tea Length or Midi hemlines are trending because they offer the best of both worlds. They’re elegant like long gowns but cover your legs more than a short cocktail dress, and moms love that! The modern twist is that many are high-low, meaning higher in the front and longer in the back. High-low midis allow you to dress modestly, show a little leg, and not look old!

Choosing a classic Mother of the Bride or Groom outfit with a new modern detail is an easy style recipe. It works every time and will make you look fabulous in 2023!
