The mother of the bride should discuss selection of dresses with her daughter a long time in advance. It’s best to start preparing these things at least six months ahead as this will leave plenty of time for all parties to select and order.
There will also be adequate time for special features, alterations and so on to be scheduled if necessary. Custom wedding dresses do take quite a while to prepare and you want to be sure that each of the principal figures has a beautiful wedding dress for the big day.The mother of the bride’s dress should never be white; this should be reserved of course for just the bride.
A black dress is considered to be bad luck and anything with too vibrant a color is simply considered to be too much. Coordinate the mother of the bride’s dress so that it complements the appearance of the bridal party. The mother of the groom’s dress should never overpower the mother of the bride’s dress as this is considered to be bad etiquette.
