Mother of the bride ideas
Picking an outfit for a special occasion such as a wedding can be quite daunting. Finding the right dress and matching headwear, shoes, handbag & jewellery can dishearten even the savviest of shoppers.
With so many styles and colours to choose from it can seem like an endless parade of silk, lace, satin and chiffon! To help make it easier for you, we have put together a few Mother of the bride ideas.
Selected from our great range of designers available at Lynch’s Banagher, we hope this will give you some inspiration in deciding what to wear to that big occasion.
The Cabotine dress & jacket combination oozes class. The jacket’s button is cleverly positioned to nip in under the bust and accentuate the waist. If this is not an area you wish to draw attention to, the jacket will look equally elegant left open.
The straight, clean lines combine for a classic & sophisticated look. The three quarter length sleeves are right on trend and they also give the illusion of lengthening the body. Underneath the jacket, the dress has lovely capped sleeves and a sweetheart neckline.
Matching the hat and shoes in the same shade as the outfit finishes the look but silver sandals or shoes also work very well with navy.
Carla Ruiz occasion wear is very modern with lots of intricate detailing. The outfit we have chosen is a gorgeous shade of pastel blue which is sure to stand out at any occasion.
The decorative jacket finishes at the same length as the dress, looking effortlessly stylish and bang on trend. It has a round neckline with a beautifully detailed clasp which eliminates the requirement for a necklace.
An ‘up-do’ hairstyle and statement earrings, as worn in the above photo, matched with shoes or sandals in nude, gold, white or silver will look simply stunning at any special occasion.
The Condici range is a luxurious collection of cropped jackets and matching dresses. We’ve selected a cream and soft-rose toned outfit in a combination of silk and lace which is simply gorgeous. The knee length dress has a slight a-line shape and so will be flattering to most body types. It also has beautifully laced three quarter length sleeves.
The silk jacket has intricate lace detail on the sleeves which mirrors the dress’s sleeve length. A pastel pink hat might be too much for some tastes so instead, team it with a fascinator or sophisticated up-do and long earrings.
A pink bag will match with nude, gold, silver or pink footwear to compliment the elegant look.
If you prefer a more figure hugging dress our John Charles collection will be right up your street – these dresses are designed to show off curves! Our choice is a cream and navy two piece with lots of lace detailing. Lace is very much on trend this season and is everywhere from the high street to designer wear.
The fitted dress has a sheer, lace jewel neckline & lace scalloped trim which gives it a very feminine look. Add a cream or white cropped jacket and navy or black shoes or sandals for a graceful elegance.
Nothing speaks summer more than flowers. With a combination of fuchsia & white this Mediterranean styled two-piece is a show stopper of an outfit.
The dress has ruching along one side and is a lovely length at just below the knee. A Spanish themed satin, bolero jacket with matching cuff completes the splash of colour for a sophisticated, classic ensemble .
This Zeila outfit works lovely with a fascinator (as in the photo) or why not go all out with a fuchsia hat. Shoes or sandals would be best in dark colours but you can’t go wrong with nude stilettos.
Fely Campo outfits are elegant in their design, suitable for the Mother of the bride and indeed any special occasion.
The sleeveless pencil dress is accompanied by a three quarter length jacket and 2 large floral themed buttons. This outfit doesn’t follow any trend it has a distinctive vintage feel to it. It is a timeless classic that can be worn again and again.
Black footwear will compliment both the buttons and waist trim of this stunning outfit.
Dressed Up by Veromia
This elegant collection provides feminine and flowing occasion wear for all sizes. The dress we have picked is in a gorgeous shade of soft blue. The chiffon dress has a fabulous jewelled neckline, decorated with delicate pearls.
The ruffled layers around the top half of the dress provide a feminine softness and depth. This is one outfit which is sure to attract lots of compliments.
Pair it with nude kitten heels or sandals and look glamorous on the special day.
This Luis Civit number is an ideal mother of the bride /groom outfit due to its delicate tailoring and simple classic lines.
Intricate lace design covers the whole of the dress and matching cropped jacket. Taupe is a neutral tone that suits most complexions and goes very well with pearl jewellery.
The gorgeous lace detail on the top section of the dress is complimented by capped shoulders and a v-shaped back. The matching cropped jacket with three quarter length sleeves adds another dimension to this elegant dress.
Taupe works very well with neutral tones so opt for nude or gold footwear. Alternatively go for a splash of contrast with black shoes or sandals.
The last choice for our mother of the bride ideas is from the Veni Infantino range by Ronald Joyce. Designed with the mother of the bride / groom in mind the whole collection radiates sophistication. Our choice is a two tone dress with a beautifully beaded neckline.
The black & white knee length dress is complimented by a white fitted jacket with contrasting beaded edging. The look is simply stunning.
This dress deserves an ‘up-do’ hairstyle to show off the distinctive neckline. Black footwear and a two toned hat or fascinator will finish this captivating outfit beautifully.
