Are you planning for the most special day of your life? We know it is very magical and everything sounds so awesome. You must be having a great time making all the important decisions related to the venue, the catering service, the band etc. One of the many aspects of budgeting, in a wedding, is the allocation of money on the wedding outfit for the mother of the bride or groom. Parents are very important and they should be given proper care in such matters. However, you wouldn’t want to go off the budget, would you? So, let’s see what we can tell you to help keep the outfit arrangement, under the budget.
Mother of bride/groom outfits can range from anything from hundreds of pounds to thousands of pounds. Most ladies would opt to go for Designer Boutiques, as they have something different to offer, as compared to the high street. There are many Irish Designer Boutiques with a wide range of brands which are suitable for the mother of bride or groom.
The mother of bride or groom, does need to look far better than an average guest. Which means you will have to spend more than an average outfit. So how much should you spend exactly?
I think this all depends from person to person, event to event and budget to budget. However, the secret trick to make the mother of the bride or groom look a thousand bucks is to add accessories to their simple outfits to make them look outstanding.
By this, I mean that you should purchase a dress on a reasonable price. You may then add accessories, like a nice hat, a necklace, some great shoes and a purse to compliment the whole outfit.
It is important that the mother of bride or groom gets an outfit that they feel comfortable in and that you feel comfortable with paying. There is no point putting yourself in debt over an outfit. If a mother of bride/groom is really organised before the wedding they could get something in the sales and save a fortune. Mother bride/groom outfits don’t change much from season to season which is a great thing. So stay on the lookout for a decent sale.
What’s is most important is that a mother of bride/groom have a outfit that they feel amazing in, and this doesn’t have to be most expensive outfit. So, it is much better that you put a lot of thought in to the dress, spend an average amount on the outfit and add some accessories to add a finesse to the whole wardrobe.
