Keep cool and look confident in these 10 mother of the bride and groom outfit ideas for a destination wedding
Searching for the ideal mother of the bride and groom outfit can prove a minefield - sometimes even more so than the bride's quest for her dream dress. As such, careful consideration needs to be taken at every stage and when shopping for an outfit abroad, your hunt should focus on finding something that will keep you cool, calm and collected while allowing you to ooze confidence.
Kirsten Emery, head of design at Kaleidoscope says:“If you’re attending a beach wedding or one in a warmer climate, go for minimum accessories and flowing fabrics, adopting a more relaxed style. For a more formal occasion in the city, take the opportunity to make a bold statement by wearing an eye-catching headpiece or fascinator, just make sure it doesn’t hide your face or detract from your outfit as a whole - it should complement your look instead of dominating it."
Accessories are indeed a key consideration when shopping for a destination wedding outfit. Kirsten continues: "If your dress is the main focus of your outfit, opt for a fascinator in a colour which matches the rest of your accessories. This will complete your outfit and bring it together as a whole.”
