How to find the perfect mother-of-the-bride dress

"Mothers have a lot on their plate when their children are in the midst of wedding planning, and one cause of stress is often tracking down the perfect mother-of-the-bride dress. But with a few tips, finding an appropriate wedding gown doesn't have to be too difficult.

'The most important rule of thumb for mothers is to follow the couple's cues about the style and tone of their nuptials," Tulsa World reported. "Before purchasing an ensemble for the big day, talk with the bride and groom about their vision for the wedding.'

While white gowns are obviously off-limits, any other color is acceptable. However, moms may also want to wait until their daughter has selected her gown and the bridesmaid dresses, as the news source suggests that it can be useful to know what cuts and colors others will be wearing on the big day.

Additionally, the mother-of-the-bride dress shouldn't match the other dresses, but complement them. Women should select a color that flatters their skin tone but isn't too distracting.

'Your attire should never compete with or draw attention away from the person with the starring role in the production - the bride,' the new provider added."
