I adore helping the sweet moms of my clients dress for the wedding day! I love when they want to compliment the wedding party with their attire but want to look their best at the same time. I mean, your mom has to look amazing, right?
But sometimes its really hard to find a gown or dress suit that looks appropriate for a wedding without looking like a performer in a casino. Avoid the dreaded bling, mamas! If it's covered in sequins and sparkles, you're running the risk of looking like one of Beyonce's backup singers and that's not really the most appropriate for your child's wedding. A little bit of sparkle can go a very long way, loves!
Also note that unless you're attending a brunch wedding, there is no need to wear something as boring as a day suit, ladies. You're a person of honor at the wedding and as such you must look the part.
One of my favorite places to find amazing gowns is Rent The Runway. There is no shortage of incredible couture gowns appropriate for every type of wedding! Here are just a few of my favorites perfect for nighttime events!
For only $135, this incredible Monique Lhuiller would be stunning at a formal but fun wedding!
This low-backed, black and gold Theia is just beyond incredible!
Color blocking is huge right now and has taken runways and the red carpet by storm all over the planet. Go bold with this black and white confection by Milly for only $150.
Another Monique Lhuiller gown, this one in glittering gold, would be perfect for any wedding where gold is being featured.
This modest black lace Anna Scholz gown is just incredible!
Is the event at a fabulous art gallery or perhaps have a more casual, but still elegant, feel? This black jumpsuit by Cushnie Et Ochs is the perfect fit!
This playful high/low gown by Monique Lhuillier would be perfect for a daytime or evening event.
Whimsical garden wedding? Look no further than this Badgley Mischka for only $165!
This one shouldered, floor-length Badgley Mischka with the flattering peplum waist would be just as at home in an ultra formal setting as a semi-formal one. And for only $150, who could say no?
Yes, I know, I'm obsessed with Badgley Mischka, but who isn't? This royal blue and black peplum/ruffled gown is just killer!
