Touch of Sparkle
It can seem daunting looking for a Mother of the Bride/Groom outfit that tones with the colour scheme of the wedding. Metallic shades, such as silver and gold, are wonderfully versatile and look gorgeous next to almost any colour. They also complement lots of different complexions. These shades offer a neutral palette that will allow you to accessorize with a pop of bright colour, or alternatively you can simply add different shades from the same palette.
When it comes to wearing neutral colours, the key is in the detail. Look for something with a touch of sparkle, pleating or lace. Beading, pearls, sequins or simply shimmer in the fabric. The overall look is sophisticated and elegant, glamorous at the same time as subtle and understated.
