Will your son get married soon? The big day is getting closer and closer and you haven’t found a groom’s mother wedding dress yet? Here are some tips of how to find the best option and of how to look stunning in that special day!

Finding the dress is one of the most important things the groom’s mother has to do. Traditionally the mother of the bride picks up her dress but in some cases she can do it herself. But all in all the two mothers have to wear similar outfits. The mother of the groom should never wear a simple beach dress if the mother of the bride wears a ball gown. The groom’s mother wedding dress can be as traditional as it can get, if the couple ask this, or as modern as it can be. If they let you decide and if your style is sporty you can always wear a fancy pantsuit to the wedding.


You as the mother of the groom are a very important person in the ceremony so your style has to be in line with the bride’s and the bridesmaid’s style. Try to talk to you daughter-in-law and see what is going to be the style and what the bridesmaids are going to wear. But be aware, because you want to keep in line with these dresses and you don’t want to copy them. A good idea would be to go shopping for a groom’s mother wedding dress with your daughter-in-law. If this doesn’t work out, you can do it yourself or together with a friend, but don’t forget, always keep the tags on and also, the receipt of the dress, before showing it to the happy couple.


Another important feature when buying a groom’s mother wedding dress is the color. You want your dress’s color to express yourself to match with the bride’s mother’s color of the dress but you don’t want it to be too matchy-matchy. On the other hand, you don’t want to get too close to the color of the bridesmaid’s dresses, because you don’t want to be mistaken as one of them. Pick a color that will work out with all the details of the wedding, for example, if the wedding is dark-red, light-red and silver and the mother’s bride is wearing something silver, than you should try to find something red. Even though black has been lambasted as being a color for the groom’s mother wedding dress, now is really trendy. Very many groom’s mother wedding dresses are found in black But before buying anything black you should ask the young soon to be married couple if they take any offense. This can be a delicate problem but if you solve it calmly it should be fine.

Searching for the groom’s mother wedding dress can be quit time consuming so you should start looking several months before the big day.  Whatever you choose you have to know that looking good and pretty on your son’s wedding day is very important. Find something that fits your body, that make you feel younger and that goes with the whole wedding.
