Maxi Dresses for Beach Weddings from Marks and Spencer

Beach weddings are all the rage these days and what better occasion to look forward to whilst in the deepest gloom of winter? Mother of the Bride outfits for beach weddings are far more casual than other affairs and lets not forget that this can greatly reduce the cost too.

Imagine sun kissed sand between your toes, a salty breeze upon your cheek and a lovely light maxi dress, cool and comfortable against your skin. Reminiscing…

Here are the two summer maxi dresses I like most from this seasons range, and you can head over to Marks and Spencer and see for yourself the lovely dresses on offer.

          

The first dress, and my preferred choice, is this lovely black and white, scoop neck palm print maxi dress.

It has been given a 5 star rating so far by customers who have already purchased and worn the dress. It is bold and you will certainly stand out beautifully in it. A closer look reveals that it has some lovely splashes of turquoise blue colour in it, which can be used advantageously by adding a nice linen jacket in the same or similar colour blue. Add a nice little jacket with three-quarter sleeves to keep you stylish by cool. The jacket can also lend a sense of formality and keep the chill off as these things often go on into the evening, which tends to be cooler, even at the beach.

The second dress is a colourful pure cotton halter neck maxi jersey dress. It has some nice colours in it to choose from when accessorizing. I’d like to see it dressed up with a nice cream coloured pashmina shawl or wrap, although any shades of purple or blue would go nicely too with it. I would definitely check this one out in person though, as the rating is only three and a half star and the reviews not all favourable. You will have to see for yourself.

Occasion Wear Dresses from Marks and Spencer

I found these two lovely occasion wear dresses at Marks and Spencer. Both very luxurious style and fabric, plus very affordable coming in way under the £100 mark. As Mother of the Bride outfits both of these could do nicely especially if you are on a tight budget.

The first one is an Autograph jacquard floral dress and it is absolutely stunning. It is made from a luxurious gold mix fabric and has classic lines. Although it may be considered more suited to a younger woman, it will look every bit as elegant and stylish on a more mature woman too.

Beware, although the reviews on this dress are great, it turns out that many ladies have liked it so much that they have either bought it as bridesmaids dresses, a wedding guest dress or the actual wedding dress in several cases! So it is clearly suitable for weddings, but I’d say tread lightly with this one and if you are thinking of it for yourself, check what the Bride thinks first (or that she is not wearing it herself!).

The second one is a burnt orange Autograph one shoulder pleated satin dress. This very attractive dress, would look great on any younger Mum, but make sure to dress it up and accessorize for individuality or it could be considered a little too plain for such a splendid task as Mother of the Bride outfits. Then again, if this is your choice I would check with the Bride before purchasing incase she thinks it too sleek.

Just imagine this dress with a nice wide hat. I think that the hat is all that is missing to turn it into something spectacular. A wide belt could go nicely with this dress too. At £75 it is a real bargain.

You can find these two occasion dresses and possibly some new additions at the Marks and Spencer website.

Petite Mother of the Bride dresses can be tough to find, especially in this day and age where being a plus size seems to be all the rage! What about those of us with a lovely petite figure? We can’t exactly go about wearing clothes for teenagers, can we?

I have found this lovely little dress in the M&S petites range, which would be a very suitable outfit for your daughter’s wedding.

This lovely blue petite cap sleeve contrast trim dress will go with most wedding theme colours. It’s a dress that can be done up with a hat and nice pair of shoes to look very elegant indeed and it would be well placed at both a casual or formal wedding.

It’s a steal at just £45.

Fosseparkfan says, “The lovely fabric and cut make it look a lot more expensive than it was.”

This is my wedding outfit pick from the range, but head over to Marks and Spencer to see the rest of their petite range for yourself.

Elegant Maxi Dresses at Marks and Spencer

You can never go wrong with maxi dresses as Mother of the Bride outfits for weddings, they are comfortable, they are stylish and they look great.

Take a look at this lovely V-neck button back maxi dress. I know, it is rather pink, which could be considered a little too flashy for your daughter’s wedding, but it also comes in 3 other lovely colours, light magenta, midnight blue and my personal favourite, dark magenta.

 

Where possible it is advisable to take a look at what other buyers have had to say about a product and this particular dress already has 60 reviews from customers most of whom have given it a 5 star rating. You can’t ask for a better recommendation than that. Let’s take a look at what some of them have had to say about it.

Livery Liese from Andover, UK likes it so much she has purchased it in 3 different colour!

Other reviewers said of it: ‘stunning’, ‘gorgeous shape and fit’, ‘fits exactly like it should’

Mrs Curvy says, “The quality of the dress and lining is superb and thick enough to hide all the bumps”

One reviewer does mention that it shows rather a lot of cleavage, so be aware of that if you would prefer something more modest, however, I’d say, if you’ve got it, flaunt it! Tastefully, of course.

An attractive necklace or pendant will look great with this neckline, or perhaps a string of pearls?

You can find a nice little jacket, perhaps a bolero, to compliment this dress and a hat would definitely go well with it too.

Is it original enough?

That is the big question and one of the things I love most about this dress. It has a classic design that never goes out of style and it is the perfect platform from which to let loose some of those creative juices by adding beading, embroidery, appliqué, fabric painting or any other ideas you may have, to turn it into a unique one of a kind outfit.

If you do not have either the talent, or inclination for such things, it will not be hard to find a dressmaker or designer who does. With the price at just £99 that hopefully (depending on your personal budget) leaves you with a bit extra to play with and here is a great opportunity to create something extra special for your daughter’s wedding.

This dress gets the thumbs up from me.

Head over to the Marks and Spencer website and see what possibilities for wedding outfits they have on offer this Spring.
