Find your perfect mother of the bride outfit at Marks & Spencer

What could be more special than celebrating your own offspring’s wedding? Seeing the person you’ve loved and raised become betrothed is a magical and memorable experience.

There’s no doubt that being the mother of the bride – or the groom – is a big deal. You want the day to go perfectly, and for guests to have a wonderful time. And, of course, you want to look fabulous. While the bride and groom are the main focus, knowing your photograph will appear on mantelpieces for years to come means it’s time to go the extra mile with your outfit.

Marks & Spencer’s gorgeous range of occasionwear is bound to impress wedding-goers when they crane their necks to see what the mother of the bride is wearing.

Whether you prefer a classic look, a statement dress or something more unusual, M&S has a range of outfits and accessories perfect for every mother of the bride.

Take, for example, the knockout combination of a beautiful dress with a matching jacket. Traditional and elegant, this pairing is timeless and will keep you warm for spring or autumn weddings (as Carole Middleton has demonstrated!)

Head to Marks & Spencer to pick up a graphic dress that looks amazing teamed with a white blazer, or opt for blue hues with a collarless jacket and lace dress.

Wedding planned for summer? Opt for a beautiful dress in a dazzling fabric, such as this floaty floral print number, or a gorgeous feminine pink dress with lace. At this time of year, you can get away with a lighter cover-up, such as a pretty pashmina.

If you prefer a more unusual look, Marks & Spencer also has some lovely options to help you look unique. Take, for example, the floral trouser suit – the epitome of chic when worn with a simple cami and heels, and ideal for styling as two separate pieces after the wedding.

Next up, it’s time to choose your accessories. You’re likely to be on your feet all day, which means comfortable shoes are a must. Luckily, Marks & Spencer has Insolia technology in its high heels; this redistributes the weight away from the ball of the foot, reducing pressure and pain no matter how glamorous the shoe. Our favourite wedding-worthy options include these chic nude courts, or these velvet and glitter teal wonders.

You’ll also need somewhere to store your lippy (and tissues!), so a small handbag is essential. Head to Marks & Spencer for a gold clutch that’ll match any outfit, or go for a colour pop with this show-stopping lilac bag.

The finishing touch for any mother of the bride outfit is, of course, the hat. Whether you prefer a frothy fascinator or a ruffle-festooned hat, M&S has the answer with its colourful selection.

Just add a glass of fizz and you’re ready to celebrate in full style!
