If you made intense efforts to find the perfect wedding dress for your daughter, you ought to pour similar efforts in looking for the perfect mother of the bride dresses for you. Indeed, you owe it to yourself to be beautiful for yourself as much as for your daughter on her wedding day!

Know Who Is Important

You have to remember that this is the bride's day, not yours, when you are looking at mother of the bride dresses. It's very important not to choose the slinkiest, showiest and shiniest outfit available just because you want to get attention for yourself. It's
not appropriate for the occasion, it's not nice to your daughter, and it's not something you would want on your wedding day.

Thus, you must opt for modest dresses that will make you beautiful but should not upstage your daughter. Stay away from cleavage-baring, back-baring and crotch-showing dresses even if you have the body to show for it. Wear that what-in-heaven's-name number some other time.

Plus, you have to consult with your daughter about the mother of the bride dresses you are considering for purchase. After all, you must never clash with the wedding entourage, blend with the tablecloths, and bring shame to the family!

Know Your Age

We all show our age at some point in our lives. There's no shame in that since it's a natural occurrence. As such, you have to acknowledge that if you have a child that's getting married, then you must have the common sense to opt for appropriate mother of the bride dresses.

This means that you must avoid choosing ultra-minis and plunging necklines on one hand and ribbons and bows on the other hand. The first pits you against the teenagers in the wedding party and the second makes you an older, much older, version of the flower girls. Either way, you will look ridiculous on your daughter's wedding day!

The moral: Act your age, dress your age and speak your age but have fun!

Know Your Body

Our bodies change as we age and even if you have had plastic work done, your body will neither be the way it used to be nor the way you want it to be. When you have acknowledged this fact of life, you will have a better perspective of the type of mother of the bride dresses that's appropriate for your body.

No worries though as there are mother of the bride outfits that are purposely designed to highlight the assets and hide the flaws of, well, older women. Still, it pays to remember these few facts of dressing up:

* Long slits look incongruous on women with short legs.
* Strapless dresses are not for flabby arms.
* Billowy clothes make for heavy forms.
* Tight-fitting clothes are best for slim people with little to no tummy fat.
* Structured dresses with corsets can provide for better silhouettes.

Try as many dresses as possible until you find one or two that will show off your assets, conceal your liabilities and just generally show you to be the classy mother of the bride after which your daughter took after!

You will soon discover that as much as you and your daughter had fun with her wedding dresses, you can also have fun with your mother of the bride dresses. Good, clean fun, of course.
