A Simple Question

Recently, a soon-to-be bride rang up and asked what she probably thought would be a straightforward question:  “Please could you help me?  I want my mother to look fabulous for my big day.  She’s recently lost a lot of weight but still doesn’t feel confident about how she looks.  What style of dress would you suggest to give her a boost?”

Well, how long have you got?  This question poses more questions than answers to start with.  Background  knowledge about the Mother of the Bride or Mother of the Groom is everything.

Firstly, the bride would not be having a wedding were it not for her mother; so that should give her mother confidence.  Secondly, two women can both be size 10 or 30 and have completely different figures and look fabulous in totally different styles.  Personal, individual advice cannot be beaten.

Here, at Florentyna Dawn, our staff are experienced in Mother of the Bride and Mother of the Groom outfits and can tell by the shape of a lady – whether fitted or flared; sweetheart, strapless or off the shoulder neckline; silk, lace or patterned cotton; bolero, waterfall or structured jacket; tea, knee or full length skirt; hat, hatinator or fascinator and then there are the accessories!  The internet is all very well for getting ideas, but a face to face meeting for the Mother of the Bride and the Mother of the Groom is essential, so that she can be advised and try on the outfits.

Made to measure could be the ideal for a Mother of the Bride or Mother of the Groom whose shape has altered radically and lacks confidence in what is to be her ‘new look’.  Our trained staff have the experience and knowledge of what suits various shapes and which colours enhance, drain or complement the client and match the colour theme of the bride, groom and bridesmaids – if there is a colour theme.  This should give the Mother of the Bride or Mother of the Groom the confidence they need.

In summary, to answer the question posed by the bride-to-be, careful, constructive consultation would be the best way forward to assist the Mother of the Bride or Mother of the Groom so that she can relax and have fun during her search.  Get your kit off and get trying on!
