I love this ceremony outfits, suitable for any person over 50, in particular for an elegant, yet down to earth mother of the Bride or the Groom who is looking for an outfit with no frills, a dress where the high quality of fabric and tailoring speaks for itself.

Mother of the bride best outfits for 2015

Here are my suggestions for the mother of the bride's outfit.
The groom's mother can also use some of this suggestions, but do check with the bride about wearing light colours. It is quite nice when all the wedding party wears light coloured dresses, but when it's just the bride and the mother of the groom it somehow seems weird... someone might think you want to steal the show.
I have to say I wasn't inspired by more affordable fashion. But I'll keep looking and might update this page as I find more solutions. My preferred options is the Biyan dress over trousers followed by Gianbattista Valli..

Tips on the colour scheme - Crazy About Weddings

In my experience as a wedding planner the colour scheme of a wedding should be at least at least 2 colours, even better if 3.
When I see one-colour -only weddings they appear to me not only flat, but also heavy and I know straight away the design in not professional.

So if you are after a delicate, and sophisticated look for your wedding, trust me, add the extra colour/s! 

The multicoloured scheme is usually more subtle and appears more refined to the eye. Often though I I prefer to add  3rd colour to finish off the palette and a 4th for the accents.

In this wedding here below I have used a combination of pink grey and olive green, that I have mixed  and matched. For the stationery I've used olive green and pink ribbon, for the bridal party grey and pink. The flowers combined all this colours, the green used was always silver green, flowers where mainly pink and white, and I went further adding  some accents of purple lavender, that worked a treat to lift the look.

The wedding was celebrated in the Italian countryside and the pictures here below are by Morlotti Studio. Flower arrangements and stationery by me - Elena -
