Shop Editor's Pick Plus-Size Mother-of-the-Bride Dresses @ Elegant Plus, Sizes 12 +
The mother-of-the-bride or groom always wants to look her absolute best for their child's special day.  Choose colors that compliment, but stand out from
the rest of the bridal party.  Styles usually are suited for a more mature full-figured woman with demure lengths, sleeves and shapes.  Church and evening suits are
often a great choice, along with formal jacket gowns.

Mother-of-the-Bride Dress Report

Mother-of-the-Bride dresses are worn by more than the mothers of the bride or groom. Special wedding guests like grandmothers and aunts are also frequently expected to dress more formally as part of the wedding party.  Consequently these dresses and gowns are meant for mature women who favor more modest styles.  More youthful mothers may choose to browse other plus-size formalwear categories.

Depending on the formality of the wedding both short cocktail dress styles and evening gowns may be chosen. It's not uncommon for either to come with a matching jacket or sleeves.  Classic colors are soft and muted, but brighter more vibrant shades - even red - are becoming more common choices.

Church or evening suits and less formal jacket dresses or social dresses are additional options that are popular.
