Between not wanting to make her look like a bridesmaid, and steering clear of super high heels, we understand why the most complicated person to dress for a wedding can often be the Mother of the Bride. One way to make mum stand out from the crowd — without outshining the bride — is to consider a little flair for her outfit.
Rami Al Ali‘s latest collection has inspired us to think outside the box when it comes to silhouettes that can suit the two most important ladies on the day: the bride and her mum. The striking designs re-think classic designs such as ankle length gowns, and kimono-esque tops that inspire any mother-of-the-bride gown with a fresh twist.
The key looks for the season include an abundance of tulle, sheer lace and hand-embroidered sequin gowns. As much as we adore crystal 3D flowers and folk embroidered ensembles, a detailed tea-length gown with a satin-waist sash is a goddess’ halo. And let’s not forget ruffled galaxy-sleeves on a straight silhouette that are those intricate, detailed styles for a beautiful and traditional affair.
When it comes to spring inspiration, bridal designers like to add a little dimension to couture gowns with an array of floral appliqués that trump the traditional doily print. With airy layers of chiffon, your mother will flutter from the ceremony to the reception with luscious and embellished petals.
The bohemian look continues to rule the wedding scene this spring. Beautifully handcrafted from fine silks and delicate laces, the term ‘flower power’ is strong and adds sophisticated touches to all types of silhouettes. From floral prints to a 3D flower vision, these earthy, ethereal looks are perfect for the free-spirited mother.
The fit-and-flare, even off-shoulder gowns are continuously floating down the runway, thanks to Rami Al Ali. Be inspired with layers of weightless silk trains and waist-belts that help achieve fitted silhouettes – a high-collared dress can take ‘royalty’ to new levels.
