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 mother of the bride dresses based in South Wales from places like Cardiff, Swansea and Newport, whom you might want to get in touch with...

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.

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.

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.
