Shop the Latest Preowned Mother-of-the-Bride Dresses

Gone are the days when mothers of the bride or groom dresses needed to be matronly and subdued. Today, the emphasis is on style and fit. One of the only rules? Let the bride guide your selection.

Once the bride and groom have decided on their wedding style, you’ll want to find a preowned mother of the bride dress that fits right in. While there are many styles of mother-of-the-bride dresses, ultimately what you choose will depend on the style of wedding. A formal, black-tie affair will probably call for a long, elegant evening dress, while a tea-length dress might be appropriate for an afternoon garden wedding. A-line, maxi, sheath, shift, and suit are all appropriate styles.

And in these less formal times, while very few conventions remain, we offer these timeless tips to help in your selection:

* Mother-of-the-bride and mother-of-the-groom dresses typically complement the wedding party’s colors. This means you may have to wait until your daughter has chosen her bridesmaid dresses before you can select yours.

* One color to stay away from? That of the bride’s gown.

* Typically the mother of the bride buys her dress first and then shares her choice with the mother of the groom.

* Mother-of-the-bride and mother-of-the-groom dresses don’t typically match, but rather complement each other. Unless, of course, it’s what the bride wants.

* When in doubt, ask the bride for some guidelines.
