Styling Tips for the Mother of the Bride

Be prepared: If you’ll be outside for photographs or in between events and you’re not sure how warm it will be, invest in a chiffon wrap scarf or short bolero. You can always throw this on when you’re out of sight or in between shots to warm up and it’ll still look formal enough for the occasion.
Opt for a mid-heel shoe – one that is comfortable to walk in but still adds a little sophistication. You’ll be on your feet for much of the day and you’ll want footwear that’s both reliable and stylish.
Request natural, flattering makeup with one key focal point (eyes or lips) if having your makeup done by a professional. You’ll want to look like the best version of yourself and over-done makeup can ruin even the best dress.
If you have short hair, you can experiment with a an embellished hair clip if you feel under-styled.
Pack a few extra supplies in your bag or stash them at the wedding venue – items such as safety pins, makeup wipes, hair clips and band aids. Someone may need them and will be grateful you had them on hand.
