As any bride knows, the “I Do” crew is an integral part of the wedding day, and considerable thought is given to ensuring that they look the part. With all the attention focussed firmly on the gang though, has enough thought been given to helping the beautiful mothers look their part? Let’s not forget that your big day is special to these lovely ladies too, so they deserve some attention in the glamour department, right?
Mothers Only, an extension of the award-winning Brisbane-based family business, Bridesmaids Only, offer a range of Mother of the Bride dresses gorgeously crafted by Australian and international designers alike, as well as affordable alternatives to ensure mums feel beautiful – without the stress!
Our favourite dress from Mothers Only? The After Six dress from popular U.S. designer Dessy! With a modest V-neck and 3/4 sleeve, this dress (pictured above, left) emphasises a graceful elegance while accentuating every curve beautifully. The pleated bodice detail and slimming stretch crepe flatter every figure, and the mid-thigh slit is both classic and effortlessly stunning. Available in six colours and sizes 6-28, there is sure to be the perfect dress for every proud mum. (This dress has a made-to-order lead time of about 12 weeks.)
As colours can vary onscreen, and Mothers Only wants to ensure that each mum loves the style and fit of her dress, they offer a “Try Before You Buy” option to help mums know that they will feel confident and beautiful on the big day in a perfect-fitting dress.
Sure, the celebration is, of course, for the favourite newlyweds, but mums can look every bit as dazzling and proud as they feel on the inside. The range is huge so if you need a little help choosing you’ll love that Mothers Only has experienced stylists on hand who can help create a look in-tune with the vision and the overall feel of the bridal party.
Head to Mothers Only and help your mum (and mother-in-law-to-be) feel ultra special.
