Your search for Mother of the Bride shoes has begun and let’s face it there is some gorgeous footwear out there, but you must be certain of one thing and this must come ahead of everything else. Do yourself a favour and find comfortable shoes. This is an absolute must. If you intend on enjoying your daughter’s wedding occasion to the fullest, be sure to rank comfortability high when shopping for your Mother of the Bride outfits.

Here are my top 3 tips for buying Mother of the Bride shoes:

1. Know your size

This may seem like a give in, but it may surprise you to know how many of us women squeeze our poor feet into the most unusual and uncomfortable of shoes. For the sake of fashion you may say? Perhaps, if you don’t have a lot of standing or running around to do you may forsake comfortability for fashion, but this is your daughter’s wedding, plan to be rushed off your feet!

2. Choose a familiar sized heel

Because the role of the Bride’s Mother is usually such an active part in more ways than one, a familiar heel size will safeguard against trip ups!

3. Comfortability, comfortability, comfortability

Oh! Did I say that already? I can’t stress enough how important this is. You will enjoy your evening far more without the agony of aching feet. You may even get the chance to dance the night away. Spend what you need to for a good pair of shoes that fit ‘like a glove’. You won’t regret it! And what’s more shoes are something that can be worn again for years to come, so increasing your shoe budget may turn out to be one of the best investments of all.

Who says you can’t match comfortability with affordability when buying shoes? I have often been surprised at the fantastic bargains I have found on shoe racks. Price is not a guarantee of quality. Trust your feet. If you try on a pair of heels or flats that don’t instantly meet with your feet’s approval, move along. It doesn’t matter that they look great. Trust me there are a lot of shops out there and you will find another pair that look just as fantastic, but feel great too. You want your shoes to fit like Cinderella slippers and if they do, you know you’ve found your pair.

I recommend a medium heel or court shoe for most ladies, but if you are a regular high heel wearer and feel comfortable in them, go for it.

Take a look at my list of Mother of the Bride shops to get started. Happy shoe shopping.

Black and white weddings are a popular and attractive theme for wedding attire and finding Mother of the Bride outfits to suit are less daunting than you might at first think.

Take a look at these two stunning dresses I have found at Gray & Osbourn. Either will do nicely for a black and white themed wedding.

The first is this stylish dress and bolero set by Gina Bacconi. And don’t you just love that feathery fascinator? Elegant and very modern, this luxurious jersey dress in ivory, taupe and black with matching bolero jacket will be extremely comfortable to wear as well as looking good. And that feathery fascinator I am sure you will agree finishes off the look rather fancily, but I hope it doesn’t tickle, as that would annoy!

Gina Bacconi Colourblock Dress & Bolero £180

The second is a chiffon and jersey dress by Frank Lyman. It’s delicate femininity says glamour all the way, and it is just perfect for a black and white themed wedding outfit. Contrasting floaty chiffon overlaid ivory bodice with split angel sleeves and black jersey skirt. V-front and back neckline, it will be a real stunner. As Mother of the Bride dresses go this one is a real winner. It embodies elegance and femininity superbly. A hat or fascinator would add to it certainly, but it is perfect just the way it is too with no extras required.

Depending on whether you are looking for Mother of the Bride outfits for a daytime or evening wedding can mean quite a difference to colour, style and type of fabric.

Take a look at these two beautiful outfits. Both highly fashionable and stylish, yet one must ask whether either of these sets of clothing are possibly a little too glitzy for your daughter’s wedding. The answer to that question, has to be one of personal style and taste.

As always, be advised to ask the Bride her thoughts on the matter, but as long as she has no objections and you are comfortable, something in these sorts of metallic fabrics will certainly make you look and feel gorgeous. A bit like a movie star perhaps? Far from being too glitzy, some would even say that this type of outfit adds that certain flourish of elegance. 

Recommended for an evening or formal wedding.

The first outfit is this gorgeous pink and gold bolero, bodice and skirt set in hammered shimmer-finish gold and fuchsia fabric. The bolero jacket has sequinned and beaded collar and cuffs, with three quarter sleeves and the sleeveless V-neck top is also sequinned and beaded with side gathers and side zip. It really is the perfect wedding outfit with matching stylish hat to finish it off fabulously. If you are aiming for classic elegance, this is one of the Mother of the Bride outfits that should be top of your list of choices.

     

The second outfit is a frosted-finish oyster dress and bolero set from Gray & Osbourn, which certainly has it all in the style and elegance departments as well as the price department, coming in with a total price of £283 for the whole outfit including the stunning hat. Another fabulous thing about this outfit is that the colour will go with just about anything. It is definitely one of my favourites.
