What should the mother of the bride wear if the wedding is red white and blue?
Just something words to think about. The mother of the bride doesn't have to wear any of the colors of the wedding . A long the bride's mother dose not stand out over the Bride .
i think white should be reserved for the bride. soft pastel colours and linen fabric is the way to go i think
The mother of the bride should wear a color that corresponds with the wedding party, but not the same color, even if she is giving the bride away. She should not wear white or off-white, but she could wear the same color as the men's tuxedos.
a light red or white but a black dress is never an opition
I'm the mother of bride. A simple church wedding the colors are red and black. Bride wears no flash white gown. What dress color and style for a 2pm wedding in Feb in TN?
The mother of the bride could wear a deeper shade of red or black (with simple jewelry in gold or silver; white/black patterned dress can also be worn. No one in the wedding party should wear red if the bride decides to wear red.
White is typically assumed to be the color a bride will wear to her wedding. Female guests should not wear white to a wedding unless otherwise requested by the bride and groom. All other colors are acceptable.
White. It is reserved for the bride.
whatever color looks best on her skin tone- no one but the bride should wear white because the bride should be in the spotlight; not her guests. both mother's can coordinate but what color they wear depends on the theme/ color palatte of the wedding and what the bride tells them to wear
The mother of the groom should ask the bride's mother what color she will be wearing. Or ask the bride what colors will be used for her bridemaids. There are only two colors she shouldn't wear - white or black. White, because only the bride should wear white. Black because it means mourning and women shouldn't be wearing black for a happy ocaision. Most mother wear blue. Although in these modern times of looser protocols… Read More
No, because white is the bride's color......just like you wouldn't want someone to go to your wedding looking better than you, wearing white to a wedding says the same thing to the bride. Unless the one of wedding colors is white or the bride speficially ask you to wear white.....DON'T DO IT!?!
Mother of the Bride can wear anything from knee length to Tea [Midi] length unless she is the Matron of Honor as well.And only the Bride wears white if this is a White wedding [ or under 10 yrs old ].
Absolutely not! White is for the bride and you should not steal her thunder on her special day
Depending on the role played in the wedding, attire for the wedding dance varies. The bride traditionally wears a white wedding dress and the groom a tuxedo or suit. The bridesmaids typically wear the outfits assigned by the bride. Guests of the wedding should avoid white or black and should wear an outfit appropriate for the type of wedding taking into account formality and a possible theme.
They can wear whatever they like as long as it isn't white (unless the bride asks them to) and as long as it is formal enough for the style of the wedding. They are not required to by any means.
Is wearing a white dinner jacket to a wedding offensive to the bride in the same way wearing a white dress would be?
Yes, I would say so. No one should be wearing white except bride.
if its a formal wedding they should wear a white long dress with a vail and their hair all fancy.... that's what i would aim to wear
Yes, your dress should embellish the colour scheme of the wedding as wedding pictures will be taken. Example: The bride of course is in white (no other person should wear all white as the bride is the center point of the wedding) and her bridesmaids are in a deep purple or rose colored dresses then mother and grandmother should wear colours such as a shell pink; light mauve (pale violet color.) To take the guess… Read More
It should be the bride that decides the color of the groom; best man; ushers and father's attire. If the groom, best man and ushers are wearing darker suits then the father should as well. No one should be in complete white other than the bride unless the bride decides she wants to be a little different. Although most whites seem white they are not and the bride should be the focal point and not… Read More
Etiquette dictates that only the bride is to wear white at a wedding.
As soon as the bride decides on the color theme of the wedding and her bridesmaids' dress colors. A mother of the bride dress should be ordered right after the bride orders her wedding gown. The reason frequently being, mother of the bride dresses in the color, fabric, style, and size that she wants is never available at the first attempt at shopping. Then there is the queston of whether she likes the way to… Read More
Ideally you want to pick a color that compliments both the attire of the mother of the bride and the bridesmaids, but avoid matching exactly, unless the bride has requested this. Above all you should avoid anything in the white or ivory color family, as this may insult the bride. You should also avoid black because it is associated with mourning, and red due to its flashiness Although traditionally both mothers wear dresses, pants are… Read More
* Etiquette dictates that the only person at a wedding wearing white should be the bride and she is the center of attention. You could wear a white/blue dress or white/black dress, but not a full white dress.
Not really. If it was a traditional wedding, where the bride family is traditional and she wears red, wearing white is unlucky. As white is the colour for Chinese funeral. And in a modern wedding, the bride will probably wear white. So....pick another outfit, it's their day..
They would were pink or white
Answer It depends on your religious beliefs. Most second marriages the bride picks a soft, pastel color. If the bride to be has never had a formal wedding and her/his religious beliefs allow it then get married in a wedding dress. A wedding dress can be white, champagne, beige, soft pastels in color. If you are worried about white meaning purity white was started by Queen (Mother) Victoria years ago and has nothing to do… Read More
Some people think so - especially if the pregnancy is showing!
It's a tradition! Also, it has something to do with the bride wearing white...and white flowers looks so beautiful in wedding.
It represent purity of the bride.
Regular white wedding gown.
Have long chiffon dress. Color and style appropriate. Wondering about muted print. Cannot find information about wearing dress with print. Is it OK for the mother of the bride to wear this dress?
Yes, it is fine for the mother of the bride to wear a long chiffon dress in a muted color. Take your daughter's wedding dress and put it up against your dress. If the dress looks too muted and is white in color then you should not wear it because the bride should always be the focal point in the wedding; but if the dress looks fine and the muted print will show up when… Read More
No, the mother of the bride does not have to wear a blue dress. The mother of the bride can wear any color dress she likes best, provided it's not white to upstage the bride.
Wearing white to a wedding is extremely disrespectful (unless your the bride), and with a royal wedding, wearing white to the wedding would be like saying you don't care about your country
NO! It is inappropriate for anyone to wear white except the bride. Find somethng else, this day is for the bride and as a guest and a relative you should respect this long standing custom.
My Fair Wedding - 2008 Snow White Bride 5-12 was released on: USA: 12 February 2012
maybe pink.... i mean, it looks good with red and white, and obviously the mother wouldn't be wearing white haha. hope this helps :)
The most beautiful white wedding dress.
Black for the groom, White for the bride
Absolutely positively NO...it's rude. The bride should be the only one wearing white that day..it's her day not her mothers. The mother may think it's a "good" idea but in the end she'll probably have an upset bride and guests who think someone is trying to be the center of attention on her daughter's day.
In the 21 century it seems all the traditional wedding rules are different. My fiancee is not wearing a traditional white dress and I am ok with that. The wedding is about the bride and groom being happy. Parents and family need to let their children make their own choices. I think you should wear what you like and be happy on that special day.
There is no traditional bridal gift from a mother of the bride at the bridal shower. The mother of the bride could give her daughter: thick bath towels; fancy place mats with cloth napkins to match and napkin holders; fancy wine glasses with perhaps a bottle of white or red wine or both and on and on it goes. Generally as a wedding gift the bride and groom prefer money so they can either save… Read More
Yes, the only person who wears white is the bride.
If you're a bride, keep your white dress on. If not, I wouldn't recommend it.
There is nothing written in stone that a bride must get married in white. White was used throughout society to mean 'virginity' but it was taken out of context. It was Queen Victoria that started the fashion trend wearing a white wedding dress. If a bride chooses to wear another color to her own wedding then she can.
That depends on the type of wedding she's having.
You'll need to ask the bride!
It depends because it might be offensive to the bride because it's customary for only the bride to wear white and you don't want to take attention away from the bride
Some pregnant brides do. The best thing to do is wear the white wedding dress BEFORE the pregnancy starts to show! but you can wear white for your wedding when your pregnant.
Only the bride should wear white if it's a white wedding. However, the bride can marry in whatever color she so chooses and there is no set fashion for color for the bride at a wedding. Queen Victoria of England started the traditional white wedding dress. From the earliest ages, it was known that white is the most fitting hue, whatever may be the material. It is an emblem of the purity and innocence of… Read More
I think it's ok for wearing a cream dress for your wedding as the dress makes the bride cute and sweet. Every bride would like to look like a beautiful angel on her special day. If you are a guest, then NO! White, ivory, cream and other shades of white are ONLY for the bride!
* The mother of the bride and the mother of the groom do not wear the same outfit. Mothers will wear dresses and they may be different in fashion and color as long as the color of the dress stays within the guidelines of the colors the bride has chosen for her wedding: Example: If the bride's Maid of Honor and Bridesmaids have long or short dresses in a midnight blue then the mothers could… Read More
If this is a summer wedding then you could wear a navy and white dress. Perhaps a nice navy dress with a wide white color. Other colors that you could wear are ivory; rose; midnight blue (preferably in a shiny material to pick up the light.)
