Does shopping for your mother of the bride outfit need to be stressful? At Celebrity we don’t think so. Your mother of the bride or mother of the groom outfit is one of the most important pieces of clothing you will need to shop for when planning a wedding, and naturally you will want whatever you choose to look perfect. Here are a few pointers from our experienced staff.
– Try and take just one or two (at the most) trusted close friends with you whose opinion you value and you can trust to be honest with you. Too many hangers on can cloud your opinion and make the whole occasion just too much. Less is more when choosing shopping partners this time!
– Plan your day before you leave the house. If you are planning on visiting more than one shop, we recommend no more than 2 or 3 shops in any one day. This will give you chance to visit each store with time to spare plus have coffee/lunch and make the whole shopping trip a pleasure rather than a chore.
– Avoid weekends if at all possible. Most shops will be quieter during the weekdays and staff will be able to devote more one on one time to you. If you cannot shop during the week, call and ask if you may have a private appointment.
– Be guided by staff and perhaps try on mother of the bride outfits/colours that you would not automatically consider – it takes only a few minutes to try on a dress and you may be pleasantly surprised! If not, nothing lost!
– Try on the mother of the bride outfit with complementary accessories such as hat/bag/shoes – they really can make all the difference and transform a plain outfit into something spectacular.
– Don’t stress if your choice does not fit you 100% perfectly. Most good stores will have a seamstress on hand for nips and tucks and it is often better to have an outfit tailored to fit you perfectly – you will look fabulous and feel more comfortable on your daughters’ special day.
