If you are searching for Mother of the Bride outfits this month, it really is a winter wedding with this cold snap we have been having. Although, perhaps you are lucky enough to be zipping off to some gorgeous warm, tropical climate. Whatever the case, take a look at John Lewis’s winter wedding category to gain some ideas and inspiration on what to wear.

Naturally, you will want to go with long sleeves or winter and spring weddings, but I recommend a sleeveless or short sleeved dress or top with a long sleeved jacket, because with winter weddings you often find yourself indoors with central heating on and it can get very hot and stuffy, and outdoors or between venues you need something warmer.

Mother of the Bride outfits idea:

How about this elegantly tailored plum purple sleeveless shift dress by Hobs. The flattering pleat detail at the waist suggests an attractive hourglass figure, even if you don’t usually boast one and the mid length cut makes it perfect for wedding attire. Alone, this dress may not stand out, but it can be dressed up with accessories. It will show off a pendant nicely with that v-neck and you cound even add your own belt to give it a little more pizzaz.

Finish off the outfit with this gorgeous Jacques Vert Shaped Hem Tailored Jacket in Fondant Pink, a delight for pink lovers. Notice how the ruching of the jacket compliments the pleating of the shift dress.

Pink is not everyone’s cup of tea I do realise, so as an alternative, it would be equally stunning were you to substitute the pink jacket for another colour. Perhaps something in a shade of grey. A charcoal or light grey would go nicely with matching shoes in the jacket colour. Take a look at this silver grey jacket also by Jacques Vert. At first glance the neckline seems a little severe, but seeing it on the model in this picture gives a better impression of how nice it looks on. And that hat too will suit both styles.

I prefer full length sleeves for winter weddings. Three quarter sleeves will go nicely too, but it might be a bit chilly.

Whichever jacket you choose, these Low Heel Pointed Court Shoes will finish off the ensemble beautifully.
