Here are some popular accessories that mothers of the bride often consider:
- Jewellery: Elegant jewellery can enhance the mother of the bride's outfit. Consider classic options like pearl or diamond stud earrings, a statement necklace, or a bracelet that complements your dress.

Pearl stud earrings, a pearl necklace, or a pearl bracelet can add a touch of elegance to any outfit.
- Handbag or Clutch: A stylish handbag or clutch is both practical and fashionable and the perfect touch for a mother of the bride or groom outfit. Choose one that matches the colour and style of your dress. If you want to be more daring, you can choice one that stands out but make sure it doesn’t clash with the brides colour theme if she has one.
- Shoes: Comfortable yet chic shoes are essential. Look for heels or flats that are in a coordinating colour and provide all-day comfort. We feel that a nude or crème colour heel matches perfectly with almost any outfit. If you want your shoes to stand out try picking a shorter dress like 992116.
