Mother of the bride: a wedding style guide for the perfect ceremony outfit

The golden rules every mother should follow are a few and basic:

- avoid, as all the other guests, light colours such as white, bride’s exclusive choice, off-white, ivory, champagne and beige; darker shades like black, which is considered too formal;
- opt for an outfit like a tailleur with top and jacket, otherwise gowns and shift dresses with a stole, which must be worn outdoor and inside churches, chapels and other religious places;
- choose medium-height shoes (max 7 cm) in order not to exceed your daughter in pictures and to avoid annoying pain;
- prefer solid colours for your garments and clothes;
- wear gloves and hats just in case they’re close to your personal style. Wearing them is purely optional;
- avoid high heels, platforms and sandals;
- don’t mix and match decorative motifs;
- don’t overdo with bold and bright accessories and pieces of jewellery;
- don’t show off an excessive d├ęcolletage or daring lace panels and transparencies without proper underwear and camouflage.
