Congrats on your son’s wedding! We’ve got you covered with a few fashion do’s and don’ts when it comes to shopping for his big day.
Follow these three key tips for mother-of-the-groom outfits:
- Steer clear of white—not only on the wedding day but also for pre-wedding festivities like the engagement party, shower and rehearsal dinner.
- Black is not off-limits. In the past, it was considered taboo to wear black to weddings, but now your little black dress is totally appropriate for an evening affair.
- It’s preferable to be overdressed rather than underdressed. If the invite states “black-tie optional,” err on the side of caution and wear a long, elegant dress—it’s better to be safe than sorry.
- You don’t want to upstage your new daughter-in-law, but it’s ok to feel beautiful and elegant. Opt for something that you feel stunning in—after all, it’s a big day for you, too.
