Mother-of-the-bride/groom expert, Coryn Emma tells us how to choose a festive outfit
Q – My mum wants to wear something festive for our winter wedding without being over the top. What do you suggest we look for?
"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.
"For the more flamboyant dresser, consider wearing beads and a roaring 20s inspired design. A Gill Harvey dress in muted shades of golds or silvers is both elegant yet lavish.
"Ensure your mum tries on a variety of different styles and colours as it’s usually the dress you least expect that you love the best. Most of all, make sure she is comfortable and feels confident."
