Mother of the Bride & Groom


The mother of the bride, as well as the mother of the groom, used to have to play by the rules when it came time to find a dress for the wedding. While many of the rules have lightened and now allow more freedoms, there are a few that etiquette still holds to. The main rule is to communicate with the bride and try to coordinate with any color themes of the wedding and bridesmaid dresses, as well as wedding colors. It is also courteous to open communications between the mothers of the bride and groom for some less rigid coordination.

Mother of the Bride & Groom Dress Etiquette

You don't want to compete with the bride, but you can be second star at the wedding. Unless the bride grants permission, it is best to stay away from the traditional "bridal" colors of white and ivory. But you can find a lovely blush color that comes close and doesn't compete. True red and black are often taboo, however with today's weddings you can tread carefully into that ground. Unique Vintage offers a vast color range that includes mauves and pinks, burgundy, navy, darker ivory and dresses with beaded and gold or silver embellishments. Many styles are available in plus sizes.

Find your favorite among our selection, so you can feel proud on that special day.
