Traditionally, that would mean leaving anything white, ivory or champagne to the bride, not being too "flashy" by wearing red, or avoiding looking like you're in mourning by showing up in black. And if your daughter's Big Day is actually an after-dark affair, the Mother of the Bride dress-code gets yet more formal.
So many rules, so little time.
Instead, focus on having some fashionable fun in a feminine & fabulous frock - like this flattering tea-length dress - paired with eyecatching accessories. A glamorous runway trend to try is The Roaring 20s (think Great Gatsby), like this T-strap heel, faux-fur shrug and elegant fascinator to add the right amount of flair. Just do your best not to outshine the bride on her big day!
