Not Matronly but Appropriate

As I said in my last post, when I look for plus size mother of the bride dresses, I tend to avoid the “traditional” wedding attire brands.  With some exceptions, I find that most wedding retailers offer matronly styles for mothers of the bride.  There is no reason to attend your child’s wedding looking like you’ve given up on life!

You don’t want to look like you’re wearing a prom dress, but you also don’t want to look like you’ve wrapped yourself in layers of chiffon and are waiting to die following the reception.  I don’t want to sound like an a-hole, but please don’t wear that type of dress or suit!

If you’re convinced that you want to wear a suit, try something with a modern cut and some structure.  Or try a jumpsuit like this one.

  1. Hi! For some reason clicking on the pic doesn’t get you to the retailer like it usually does. Also, I bought the long sleeve twist front dress from Elloqui and it runs very small, 1-2 sizes small.

  2. Well, times have changed…it was not that long ago when the Mother of the Bride dresses were any color but not black! The look is slimming, but I would not wear black to my daughter’s wedding. Why has this changed?
