The bride is the most important woman at the wedding, but there is a supporting role that is very important too.

Our mother of the bride dresses are the perfect gowns to highlight the amazing woman that raised you into the person are today. You will want her to look and feel amazing on your special day, and Venus Bridal creates the most fashionable dresses to will do just that.

Our Intermezzo collection is filled with elegant styles that will make any woman shine. There are a few important things to keep in mind when shopping for this type of dress so

that both the bride, the groom, and both of their mothers look their very best on the wedding day. 

 

Start shopping early

The earlier the search begins, the more likely you will have the time to leisurely find exactly what you want. You will also want to have plenty of time before the wedding day to pick out accessories and have any necessary alterations performed.  


Traditionally, the mother of the bride picks her gown out first, and the mother of the groom uses that dress to inspire what she chooses to wear. Shopping early will allow you each enough time to find the right gown.  

 

Coordinate with the other mother

As we mentioned earlier, the couple’s mothers usually try to coordinate their looks. This gives the entire event a very unified feel. They do not need to match exactly, but they definitely will not want to show up in dresses that are too alike. Talking to each other beforehand can avoid possible awkward situations and hurt feelings. 

Ask the couple for guidance

Let the bride and groom fill you in on the color, theme, wedding party attire, and other details about the wedding. That way you can coordinate your dress with the overall look and feel of the celebration. It’s their big day, so take the kids’ (bride and groom) suggestions to heart. 

Stick to your personal style

Even though you should coordinate with everyone involved, don’t stray too far from your own personal style. Your child wants to see you the way she/he knows you, not as some dressed up stranger. Be yourself and let your natural beauty shine through. 

Remember comfort

Weddings are joyous occasions, but the celebration day is a long one. Make sure that you choose a gown style that you are comfortable moving around in and wearing all day and night. At the end of the celebration you should look and feel just as fabulous as when you began the day.  

Venus Bridal offers a large variety of styles, shapes, fabrics, and colors for the mothers of the bride and groom. All of our amazing special occasion dresses are designed to cover the wide array of beautiful women that make up this world. Browse through the wonderful gowns that we have on our website, then make an appointment to visit one of the many fantastic boutiques that carry Venus Bridal fashions.

He proposed, you said yes, and now it’s time to get that dress! Your wedding is one of those extra special moments that you will want to be as perfect as possible, and finding the most beautiful bridal gown is a big part of making that happen.

Shopping for wedding dresses is not something that a woman does often, so Venus Bridal has put together a list of things that you definitely do not want to do. Follow these tips and your shopping trip should be successful and fun.

DON’T go in clueless.
Even though you may be tempted to rush out the day after the proposal and start trying on bridal gowns, don’t do that. Going at it without any type of research or planning could result in a very confusing and overwhelming experience.

Begin by looking at bridal magazines and browsing websites like www.VenusBridal.com. This will give you an idea of the types of gowns you favor, and that information will help the bridal boutique’s consultant know which wedding dresses to bring out first.

When you are ready to head to the bridal shop, always call first to see if an appointment is necessary. Some require a reservation, and even if they don’t, if they know you are coming, you are more likely to get the individual treatment you deserve instead of having to fight with other shoppers for the consultant’s attention.

DON’T be shy.
Once you are at the bridal gown store, this is the time to speak up and ask any and all questions that you may have about your wedding fashions. The bridal consultants at the store work with these dresses every day, and a good salon will have trained their employees to be experts. Trust that they can guide you in the right direction and be open to their knowledge and suggestions.

Also, don’t be too timid to try something new. Just because you loved a certain wedding dress in a photo doesn’t mean that it is the perfect one for you. Every gown will look slightly different on every woman, so be brave enough to try on a variety of styles until you find the silhouette that you love on your own body. Once that’s narrowed down, you will most likely find your dream dress within that style.

DON’T bring too many people. 
There will be lots of friends and family members that are nearly as excited as you about the wedding dress shopping. You do not need to feel obligated to say yes to everyone that wants to tag along. Even if you have a large bridal party, they don’t all have to be there for this moment.

Too many opinions can make the decision extremely difficult. Try to keep the number of helpers to a minimum, and only bring the people that know your personal style and have your best interests at heart. Happy, postive attitudes are what you need on a day like this.

DON’T go hungry.
Occasionally a bride will get lucky and find her dream wedding dress after only trying on a few, but this is rare. More than likely you are in for a long day, so going on an empty stomach is not a good idea. Having a light meal before you shop will give you the energy needed, and keeping a snack handy in your purse is a great idea in case you start feeling a little drained halfway through the appointment.

DON’T see this task as a chore.
Yes, there is some preparation required to make sure that your wedding dress shopping trip is a rewarding one, but the research can be fun, you’ll be shopping with the people that are nearest and dearest to you, and… you’re getting married to the man you love! This should be an exciting and enjoyable experience. Above all else, remember to have fun with it and savor every moment.

The perfect wedding dress is out there waiting for you, it’s just a matter of time before you find each other. An excellent place to start is with the exquisite collections of Venus Bridal. We offer a wide variety of goreous bridal gowns for every type of bride. Once you get an idea of which ones are your favorites, you can find a local retailer near youright on our website. Best wishes for your wedding, and happy shopping!
