First, talk to the bride and groom.
This dress that you are looking for is all yours, but the wedding itself is all about the bride and groom. Start by asking the couple about the vision they have for the wedding day fashions. Use their wishes for the overall look of the event to guide your gown choice. Their suggestions will lead you to styles and colors to get your search underway.
Borrow from the wedding style.
Many of the wedding details planned can help you decide what type mother of the bride dress will work best. First of all, the formality of the wedding will play a big part in your decision. So will the look of the venue, the bridesmaids' dresses, the bridal gown style, and the colors chosen to decorate with.
Maintain your personal style.
You can let the factors listed above guide you, but make sure that the final decision is also based on your own personal style. While the bride and groom want you to coordinate with the rest of the wedding party's look, they won't want to to wear anything that you don't feel like yourself in. The accessories that you choose are a wonderful way to accomplish this.
Coordinate with the other mother.
It's always nice when the mother of the bride and the mother of the groom can work together to coordinate their looks. Neither one of you wants to accidentally show up in the same dress as the other woman, or in a gown that looks as if it is competing with the other. The photos will look even more beautiful when the two of you wear dresses that look nice next to each other. Tradition dictates that the bride's mother gets first choice.
Start shopping early.
The earlier you begin shopping, the more likely you are to find the perfect dress. Starting too late will make you feel as if you have to rush, not letting you truly find "the one." Also, there is a good chance that the dress you decide on will need to be ordered, and possibly have a few alterations made once it comes in. You'll want plenty of time to find the best accessories too. Get started early so you have enough time to take your time.
