7 Mother of the Groom Outfit Styling Tips

Mother of the Groom Duties

John Charles are renowned for their luxury occasion wear, so we thought it only right to catch up with Regine Ellis, their Creative Director.

From colour palettes to whether or not you can wear white, she has lots of top tips and secrets which will help you look your best!

READ MORE: Gok Wan’s Top Styling Tips for Brides

1. What Does the Mother of the Groom Wear?

There aren’t any hard and fast rules, but there are a few recommendations when it comes to choosing your mother of the groom outfit.

First of all – you’ve got to make an effort! You should choose something smart and good quality – it is the most important day of your son’s life, after all!

“Choosing a quality outfit will not only give you a great silhouette, you’ll also have an outfit that will last a lifetime”, says Regine. As if we needed an excuse…

You should also consider colour. Regine says: “Work to complement the wedding’s colour palette, not match it. Look at the colour scheme of the bridal party; if the bridesmaids are in lilac, go for a rich deep purple accent”.

She continued: “You should also aware of the type of wedding and venue your son is having, as this should be reflected in your outfit.”

Last but not least, you’ve got to abide by the golden rule of styling! That is to work with what you have an highlight your most beautiful features. Regine told us: “A knee-length, tailored fit is fantastic for elongating and showcasing legs, for example”.

2. Can the Mother of the Bride and the Mother of the Groom Wear the Same Colour Dress?

Of course! There is no rule to say that you can’t wear the same colour as the mother of the bride (or other mother of the groom). The key is to make sure you’re wearing dresses in colours that don’t clash, if you’re opting for different shades.

Traditionally, the mother of the bride would buy her dress first, and then consult with the mother of the groom who’d buy something to complement the chosen gown. Now, the rules are a little less strict – but we’d still recommend you confer before the big day!

3. Can the Mother of the Groom Wear a Patterned Dress?

Yes, you can – in fact, some of our favourite mother of the groom dresses are patterned. As long as your dress doesn’t clash with the bridal party’s outfits, you’re good to go.

4. Can the Mother of the Groom Wear Black to a Wedding?

These days, black dresses are very much accepted for the mother of the groom. It’s elegant and slimming, and there are so many lovely black or monochrome mother of the groom dresses out there.

As long as the couple are happy with your colour choice, there’s nothing to say you can’t choose a black outfit.

5. How Should the Mother of the Groom Prepare for the Big Day?

Regine says: “Have a pampering session and get your makeup done professionally for the big day. Bear in mind the running around you’ll be doing on the day… and the tears! Be prepared to apply touch ups.”

6. Can the Mother of the Groom Wear White?

It is acceptable to wear white, but it must be broken up into a print with other colours – you don’t want to upset the bride!

7. Does the Mother of the Groom Wear a Hat?

Yes! “It’s the eternal signature of glamour and a form of costume that gives you confidence. A comfortable, securely placed hat will always look lovely”, says Regine.

Dub this one a “Claire Favorite”, our Editor-in-Chief has been inundating the Bridal Musings group chats with every single gown by The Own Studio. And rightly so! Our latest bridal designer discovery from the UK has the team spellbound by their unique take on the sexy, silk wedding gown.

Not just another bias-cut slip dress, The Own Studio has created a collection of silk wedding gowns that feature one-of-a-kind detail and avant-garde silhouettes. Take Style 023 for example, this would-be-halter-gown features illusion paneling and eye-catching sleeves – a sleek bridal style we truly haven’t seen before. Or Claire’s favorite Style 017, which is a smooth satin silk halter that reveals the most unexpected & stunning scarf tie & keyhole back.

A.B. Ellie

Price Range: $600 – $4,400

The artful & chic wedding accessories designer A.B. Ellie has just launched a section of their online store with exclusive Little White Dresses & separates from some of our favorite indie bridal designers.

While this is likely the smallest shop & most “boutique-y” option on our list, we have high hopes for this edit that includes dresses and bridal looks perfect for the Covid-era of smaller, casual weddings. If you’re a bride who wants something less formal or shorter length for your Minimony but don’t want to sacrifice quality or style you’ll be thrilled by the casual couture options.

It goes without saying we think this handmade silk wrap dress by The Law Bridal would be perfect for your wedding-day look & wardrobe for decades to come.
