Finding a simple and elegant Mother of the Bride Dress should be fun and still cater to the bridal party colors and styles. A few of my favorite desgins include the elegant and sophisticated dresses and gowns at Dillards. JS Collections and the Adrianna Papell long dresses fit the bill. In selecting a beautiful and stylish dress consider the cut, style and color. You want to complement not compete yet still stand out. Maybe selecting a neutral color from beige, silver or navy isn't a bad idea for a classic and sophisticated look. Then take a look at sleeve length, every one I know has baggy underarms. So maybe a cap sleeve, 3/4 sleeve or long sleeve should be considered or if you're in really nice shape the tiered gown is an excellent choice.
So many options for the Mother of the Bride nevermind price, color, flattering cuts and shilhouettes. Try many dresses on with heels, if you love it at the store you'll love it at home. Then, look at evening strappy sandals or open toes, small purse and fabulous jewelry. Simple and elegant with feminine details is all you want to accomplish for this special day.
