Pantsuits for the Mother of the Groom
Simple and Elegant
The Mother of the Groom
In just six weeks, our son will marry his true love. The day of the event is fast approaching and the big question is on my mind. Shall I wear a dress or dressy pants?
As the Groom's Mother, my choice of attire is largely dependent on the choices of the Bride and her Mother. Have you ever heard that the wedding is really for the Bride and her Mother? They do set the tone for the event. The location of the wedding and the time of day for the ceremony are also key influences in my wardrobe selection.
Evening hours for a wedding usually indicate a more formal affair. The stylish hours for a more formal wedding are seven and eight o'clock. Afternoon weddings are most often more casual and informal than evening events.
Choices, Choices, Choices
The Bride has her wedding dress. The Mother of the Bride has selected a gown for the event. The colors for the flowers, decorations and Bridesmaid dresses have been chosen. My attire should complement the brides' choices.
There are several forms of etiquette to be followed. One rule of thumb is to never wear white or light beige colors to a wedding. Black and bright red colors are also discouraged. In this case, the Brides' Mother is wearing a silver blue gown. The Bridesmaids are wearing a peachy pink color and the colors for the wedding are subtle touches of pinks and mauves.
I have selected a dressy baby blue pant suit. The material is light and flowy, dressy for the occasion. Did you know that pant suits are becoming more popular for weddings and social events? This trend for women in the workplace and for social events has been changing for years!
The Father of the Groom is important too. The Father of the Bride is wearing a dark suit. The groom and the groomsmen will be wearing beige suits with ties to complement the bridesmaid colors. My husband will also wear a dark suit with a shirt to complement my outfit.
Another important thing to remember, as the mother of the groom, is to not stand out with your color choices or style. The Bride and her Mother are spotlighted during this time. Be as elegant and beautiful as you can be. Make your son proud to call you Mom and Dad.
This can be a very emotional time for the parent! Tuck away a kleenex or two for emergencies. A fresh touch of the lipstick before pictures is important too! Most of all, enjoy every moment and treasure those special memories! I will.
