Dresses For Mother Of The Groom

Dresses for mother of the groom are an important part of any wedding. Once the bride and the mother of the bride have picked out dresses, it's time for the mother of the groom to step into the spotlight. While the color of the dress should fit in with the rest of the bridal party, there are many neutral colors that can look great with any other colors. Accessorize neutral colors with the tones of the flowers or other neutral shades.

Formal dresses can be found in a wide variety of styles, from very formal to semi-formal. The mother of the groom's dress should match formality of the mother of the bride's dress. Choosing complementary colors for the two dresses is ideal, but different tastes require their own flair.

A black dress will contrast against the bride's gown. Black is a very formal color and will look dazzling with light toned jewelry. A silver toned set of jewelry with rhinestones will shine beautifully against a black dress, as well as jewelry with pearls.

A beige or tan dress has subtle warmth and will match most other dress colors at the wedding. Tan dresses made in soft sheer materials will look good with accessories like gold jewelry and strappy black sandals. Dresses for mother of the groom that are tan are a nice match to cool toned mother of the bride dresses.

Generally, a white dress should be avoided as to not upstage the bride on her big day. However, white is perfectly neutral and is a great choice to complement a bride who has chosen a colored dress instead of traditional white. A white dress can be worn with any color of accessories. Jewelry with gems or bolder designs will stand out beautifully on white. Since white reflects light, shiny gemstones will pick up that extra glimmer.

For something in between white and tan, an ivory dress is the perfect option. Its tone is very soft and it matches most other colors. Darker shades of jewelry will go well over ivory, as well as darker shoes. Gold chandelier earrings and black evening sandals are both nice options.
