Spring has sprung and BHLDN Spring 2013 Collection has arrived! Our favourite part is the addition of mother of the bride dresses. I know from personal experience it was tough for my mother to find a dress that she felt fabulous in. I mean, she is the mother of the bride and deserves to look spectacular on my big day as well.
BHLDN has come up with some of the most perfect designs for your moms, incorporating lace and other delicate fabrics like chiffon and silk. They are all in very wedding-esque tones like blush pink, ivory and taupe.
Some say that mother of the bride dresses are the hardest ones to choose, but here are some options to make it a breeze…
Our personal favourite, this dress is so classy, yet so flattering on basically any body type, and it doesn’t scream “mom.” It’s sexy because it shapes the silhouette, yet is still classic. Silk chiffon drapes and twists over metallic lace, settling across shoulders like a delicate mist. By Badgley Mischka. Back zip; wrap connects in back with hook-and-eye, or can be worn draped loosely around shoulders. Cloud Cover Dress - $650
Exquisite draping is the star of this Byron Lars original design. Lush silk charmeuse cascades to a tapered waist accentuated by a removable belt, before billowing out to a swirl-worthy full skirt. Preservation Society Dress - $500
For the classic mother. This silvered tweed dress, abloom with appliqued gold flowers, walks the line between day and evening wear with elegant ease. Badgley Mischka ramps up the sophistication level with crisp taupe piping at the edges and slim slash pockets. Twilight Shift Dress - $595
For the mom who wants to feel like she’s in a fairy tale too. We think this might be a bit over the top for most mothers of the bride, but it might just be the perfect fit for an extravagant ballroom affair. A swirl of blush tulle, a scattering of metallic roses. Badgley Mischka’sstrapless silhouette seems plucked from the pages of a moody fairytale. Beaux Arts Dress - $540
What is your mother going to wear to your big day? Do you have a preference on what you want her to wear, like matching a certain colour scheme or style?
