Suppliers of Ladies' & Girls' Formal Wear

For such a very special day you want to ensure you choose the perfect outfit. There are no rules of course, but there are traditions and things to bear in mind when choosing an outfit.

Most mothers look for a dress that blends with the bride's chosen colours and often uses the bridesmaids' dresses as a palette. It's usual to avoid white, ivory, black or red or anything too bright or overdone. If you're unsure, talk to the bride for her opinion because, let's face it, it's her big day! The main thing is that everyone feels comfortable and beautiful.

Here’s some great boutiques where you can choose from a wide range of ladies' and girls' fashions based in South Wales from places like Cardiff, Swansea and Newport, whom you might want to get in touch with...

Don't forget to mention Your South Wales Wedding magazine when contacting a boutique for your mother of the bride outfit or formal formal wear for ladies and girls.

Should you get married on Mother's Day?

Choosing your wedding date is one of the most important things when it comes to planning your wedding. We are very quickly moving from traditional etiquette into a society where we are far more flexible with these. Award Winning UK Wedding Planner - Illy Goodall from Illy Elizabeth Weddings shares her insight into whether you should get married on Mother's Day.

There are certain days within the year that you should try to avoid getting married, however with the backlog of weddings this year we are using any given date possible. Whilst I don't think there is personally anything wrong with setting the date for Mother's Day, it can be inconvenient for some people who wish to spend this day with family.

Mother-of-the-bride/groom expert, Coryn Emma tells us how to choose a festive outfit

There are lots of ways you can incorporate a festive feel into your wardrobe without going overboard. When dressing for the big day, your mum should consider your wedding colours, whether that be muted shades or merry hues, there is sure to be something that works for her. Look for deep shades of forest green or bright pops of ruby red. If she decides to go for a strong hue, remember less is more. A simple, well-cut dress that flatters the figure will do the job perfectly.

How to choose a mother-of-the-bride/groom outfit for an autumn wedding

I love the sound of your wedding! Red is such a beautiful, bold colour, so whilst looking for the perfect outfit for your mum, there are a few things to consider. What do you want the wedding party to look like? Would you like to adopt the colour red alongside an autumn theme throughout? Perhaps look at berry shades of bright magenta, deep aubergine or burnt orange. Alternatively, you could use softer tones of beige or gold, which are rich and luxurious and will really make her dress pop.

Popular mother-of-the-bride/groom colours and styles for 2022

Hopefully, spring/summer 2022 will be the year of weddings with colours reflecting what will be an uplifting and energising year whilst restoring balance into our lives. Take inspiration from the orchid flower, an intense hue of magenta alongside a natural shade of olive. Butter yellow and mango sorbet are also dominant tones set to storm the catwalks, with the most predicted one being Atlantic blue. So, where does this leave our mother- of-the-brides/grooms? The dress only option is becoming more sort after rather than the uniform dress with jacket. Bolder shades are also more popular with fashion- conscious women who are opting for re- wearable outfits that can be pulled from the wardrobe for other occasions, and designers are quick to pick up on that.
