- Recognize dress etiquette. It is very important you are familiar with how the mother should dress at her child's wedding. It is usually the protocol that the mother of the bride chooses her outfit first, followed by the mother of the groom. The color of the dresses and their length should complement each other.
- As mother of the bride, find a dress or outfit that is elegant, classy and flatters your figure. Avoid pants and neon colors. Most importantly, do not wear white. Schedule an appointment with your daughter's bridal salon to get advice on your gown as well.
- Use accessories. To add to the elegance of your dress, accessorize with a small flower bouquet, a glamorous shawl, delicate earrings, a necklace and high-heeled shoes. Heeled shoes tend to make the legs appear longer and more slender, but remember that you will have to stand in them for several hours.
- Being a good hostess. Do not shy away in the comer. Being a charming and pleasant hostess to your guests will surely get you noticed. Make an extra effort to greet and speak with all of the guests. Let them know you are happy for your child. Always wear a smile and make eye contact with each person you greet. Thank your guests for attending and give compliments. This display of happiness and confidence on your part will make put your guests at ease and will make them glad to associate and mingle with you.
