The Le Louvre definition of a Mother of the Bride and/or Groom is somewhat of a different take on how mothers should be on their child’s wedding day. Blend in? No. Mauve or Taupe? No. Dress and Jacket ensemble. Definitely Not! We want our mothers to be sophisticated, sassy and in some cases smoking hot.
The wedding party should lift a bride and groom in the style stakes! We love our Le Louvre Mothers of the Bride and Groom. By appointment at Le Louvre, we work with you to determine the most suitable and stylish look for your big day.
This week we have taken inspiration from some super stylish mothers and daughters and their special occasion looks.
Choose looks that you feel comfortable yet stylish in. Christie Brinkley looks incredible in her white Victoria Beckham number (left). A shade that will work with any bride – remember to run it past the bride first, no bridezilla moments! Right, she is pictured in a gorgeous and rich violet jewel tone that works well with her colouring. A strong colour can also work back beautifully with the bridal party.
If a darker colour palette is more your thing, it’s okay to venture down this path. Black is okay as long as you still feel stylish and sexy. Susan Sarandon chose a traditional style with lace for Eva’s wedding day.
Cocktail length dresses are tough to come by with that perfect combination of glitz – but not too much! Again, monochrome or black with accents of silver or a pop of colour can work perfectly. Find something black with some texture or some metallic accents.
If you are going to run with the taupe and nude colour palettes as Mother of the Bride ensure it is the right shade for your skin tone. Rumer’s body con dress works so well because it picks up the gold in her skin and gives off a warm tone, rather than cool.
Appointments for eveningwear at Le Louvre are available Monday to Friday 10:30am until 4:00pm.
