Gone are the days when the mother-of-the-bride wore a saree by default. Now, times have changed, and the new generation of mothers-of-the-bride are experimenting with various styles and are getting their share of the limelight. They have curated looks tailored to the vibe and theme of the wedding and looked quite spectacular.

Your daughter’s wedding is something that you have been looking forward to forever, and you must look the part. We have for you some eye-catching designs that we spotted on the web. 

5 Outfit Ideas For The Mother Of The Bride - The Wedding Brigade Blog


Coordinate With The Bride

The mother here has chosen a saree very similar but also much understated when compared to the bride. The combination looks spectacular in photos.

How To Make Your Vritham Look Stand Out The Coming Wedding Season


Slay It In Hot Pink

Go ahead and wear bright colours if that is your style. For Haldi, you can keep it simple and comfortable by opting for a chikankari salwar suit. The hot pink of the mother’s salwar nicely contrasts with the yellow of the bride’s dress. 


In A Gota Patti Saree

Stay true to your roots in a traditional Gota Patti saree such as this. Even though the saree is simple, she has accessories it with a statement neckpiece and dangler earrings which adds the required level of grandeur.

Lehenga With A Twist

If a short blouse is not your style and you are looking for a more demure option, then a peplum blouse is a great idea. With a peplum blouse, you can keep it as long as you like, and it will still look stylish and classy. 


Coordinate With Your Siblings

The mother and aunt look super elegant in the half-sari style design. The pastel colours and the floral pattern suit the theme, which also looks subtle and understated.


Same Style, Different Colour

Here, the mom has chosen to wear the lehenga in the same fashion as the bride but has decided to go for a subtle, pastel shade. Let us draw your attention to the polki bag which is matched with the outfit and big enough to carry anything that the bride might need.

A Tribute to Moms from their Brides & Grooms this Mother's Day


In A Sharara Set

The mom looks gorgeous here in a multicoloured sharara set. The orange and pink of her attire merge well with yellow and pink of the bride’s lehenga, and it makes for an overall bright and vibrant look. 


With A Cape Blouse

If you want to avoid the hassle of managing a dupatta, then you can go for a sheer jacket such as this. We are in love with the dusty blue colour she has chosen. The cute little fan and the drawstring purse complete her look. 


Shawl With A Saree

Here, she has chosen an ivory coloured saree but has paired it with a worked, heavy red shawl to add a pop of colour. You can go for this idea if you can manage a shawl along with a heavy saree.

With A Statement Blouse

Even a simple saree can be amped up with a shimmery blouse such as this. The long sleeves make her look refined. While going for a heavily sequined blouse, keep neck jewellery minimal so that it does not look messy. 


Lace Saree

Silk sarees or Kanjeevarams or not the norm for the mother-of-the-bride anymore. We love how the mother here looks elegant and sophisticated in a gorgeous lace saree and accessories with minimal jewellery. Also to be noted is that she has boldly gone for a subtle shade which blends well with the surrounding.
