Mother of Bride Dresses - Top Ten Deals

Aha, the fabled and dreaded mother of the bride – she needs a dress too!

Mother of the bride dresses tend to be much less elaborate and fancy than the bride dresses, and a little comfier too – after all, the mother of the bride is going to be meeting and greeting in it for much of the big day. For that reason it is always a very careful consideration for mothers before the wedding days, as they want to look smart without outdoing the bride herself!

And don’t forget the mother of the groom either – she has the same sort of decisions to be made, although she is much less likely to class with her offspring!
