As the mother of the bride or groom, it can be challenging to know what outfit to wear to your daughter or son’s wedding. You may have questions about the colours you should wear and what kind of fit and style would be best. To answer your questions and offer you some inspiration, we’ve rounded up our most popular traditional mother of the bride looks for 2022 weddings.
This season’s collection is full of swing skirt, bold floral prints and cap sleeves - perfect for warmer spring and summer weddings. Pastel colours are particularly suited to this season, and you can find lots in our collection alongside lace applique designs and exquisite beaded and embroidery detailing.
Style 991858A is a fabulous mother of the bride dress for spring and summer weddings. The traditional A-line silhouette is modernised with a stylish, on-trend lattice pearl-beaded body. A high neckline and cap sleeves make the dress a modest and sophisticated option for the elegant mother of the bride. The dress is beautifully finished with a delicate waist belt with bow detailing. If you want to stand out from the crowd, we recommend wearing this style in the bold Turquoise/Ivory colour option.
If you’re looking for a long-sleeved option, style 991819 is a great choice. This chiffon A-line dress with illusion sweetheart neckline makes a subtle yet stylish statement. A beautiful bateau neckline is complemented with ¾ length sleeves and intricate embroidery, making it ideal for summer and winter weddings alike. For summer weddings, we recommend this dress in Dusty Rose/ Ivory.
Fitted knee-length styles are also hugely popular and a traditional choice for many mothers of the bride. Style 991851 is a great fitted tulle and crepe dress with an exquisitely embroidered body. A contrasting waist belt gives dimension to the dress and creates a flattering silhouette for any woman. The traditional fitted style of the dress is complemented with classic cap sleeves and a bateau neckline. Our top selling colour in this style is the gorgeous Dusty Rose.
If you’re looking for a dress with great detailing, style 991860 is a perfect choice. This chiffon A-line dress exudes elegance and style with its modest calf-length skirt. The delicate skirt is complemented with a gorgeous lattice and lace applique detailed body that creates the perfect mother of the bride look. The dress is beautifully finished with a v-neckline and cap sleeves. We love the summer colours Candy, Coral and Lemon for a bold look.
Style 991870 is a fabulous dress for the graceful and feminine mother of the bride. An elegant, beaded bodice is contrasted with a classic, plain swing skirt that is sure to give great movement as you walk.

This flattering knee-length crepe dress is dramatically complemented with fabulous contrasting ruffle detail. A gorgeous asymmetrical neckline also gives a modern twist to the otherwise traditional silhouette - perfect for fashion-forward women.
Lace detailing is a great way to incorporate detail into a dress and makes a fabulous option for mothers of the bride.

The dress comes with a matching chiffon coat, offering an opportunity to alter the look. Available in five fabulous colours.
Looking for a dress that you can wear again after the wedding? Style 991855A is a beautiful mother of the bride dress that is suited to any formal occasion. The calf-length traditional A-line dress has a decorative and feminine embroidered bodice paired with a modest off-the-shoulder bateau neckline and bow detail. A contrasting waist belt completes the traditional and timeless look. The Ivory/Taupe version of this dress is our most popular colour in this style.

A delicate beaded belt cinches the dress in at the waist, creating a beautiful silhouette on any body type. We love this dress in Blissful Blue.
Off-the-shoulder necklines offer a very flattering and elegant look which is perfect for a mother of the bride.
