What does a Mother of the Groom wear to the wedding?

The bride will always be the focal point of any wedding, that’s a given. But what about the mom of the groom? This is your day in the sun, a time of joy and pride, of letting go and gaining a daughter and playing by the rules. If this were a horse race, you would “place”.

The bride will choose a color scheme, and she may want you to blend even though you are not officially part of the wedding party. The unwritten rule gives the mom of the bride first choice in a gown. That may be a good thing. Once you know what she’s wearing it actually puts you in a very nice position of knowing how important your gown needs to be and the freedom to choose a color that works for you and the bride. One thing is for sure, there is not shortage of magnificent gowns for you to choose from.

By blending, we do not mean wallflower, we mean complimentary. At Elephant’s Trunk we are fortunate to carry couture designers that allow for custom designs; the top from one dress with the bottom of another, cover the arms, a little lower on that neck line, peg the skirt, accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative. It is so much fun!

Cooperating doesn’t mean settling. Again this is your day in the sun, go glamorous, stand tall and walk proud.
