  • MOTHER OF THE BRIDE: Find out what your daughter (-in-law’s) vision is for the big day and be sure to complement – not compete.
  • FIT COMES FIRST: Understand what first suits your shape. When in doubt, enlist the help of a seamstress who can expertly customise a dress from off-the-rack.
  • DECODE THE DRESS CODE: Not sure what to wear? Think floor-length frocks or elegant trouser suits for black tie; knee-length, midi styles or chic jumpsuits for cocktail; day dresses or co-ordinating separates for semi-formal.
  • WEATHER PERMITTING: Think beyond the dress in terms of a coat or cape, tights and other winter accessories. Even indoor weddings include time spent outside: photos outside the church, travelling between venues. Be prepared.
