Silver, metallic, and jewel tones are often associated with outer space, Christmas, and the New Year holiday season. But it has taken a new turn in fashion when worn, styled, and appreciated in a respectful way.

Metallic is a great way to add a modern twist to the Mother of the Bride (MOB) and Mother of the Groom’s (MOG) outfit of the day.

Let’s not forget this day has been as long awaited for the Mother of the Bride’s and Grooms, as it has been for the Bride and Groom.

The MOB and MOG deserve to feel and look special on a day that they’re allowed to take some credit for.

Modern Mother of the Bride and Groom Tips:

DO – Acknowledge the colour palette of the wedding; you don’t want to turn up in a hot pink dress if the wedding is muted tans and creams, but be attentive too, you don’t want to look like you’re a bridesmaid. You are special; a metallic element within your outfit can give you your own flair.

DON’T – Worry about being ‘age appropriate’. What even is that? Metallic can be considered a neutral and will make you feel chic and stylish. Metallic paired with a rich colour palette makes it easy to find a flattering garment that is mature and pretty.

DO – Mix and match. It is time to put a stop to the colour co-ordinating bag, shoes, dress, and hat ‘mother-of-the-bride-and-groom-uniform. Use this time as an opportunity to experiment with metallic, patterns, and textures that are on-trend and a reflection of your personal style.

A mother plays a deserving and distinctive role in their child’s wedding day. They should indulge in feeling overwhelming proud and happy, in an outfit that makes them feel confident and special, on a day that is a once in a lifetime occasion.

So why not consider metallic your new neutral and make ‘shine’ your new favourite colour.
