1. Wrap Styles

One of the most figure-flattering styles is the classic wrap dress. Wrap dresses sculpt your waist, enhance your bust and give you a curvy hourglass shape. This spring we are seeing wrap-style dresses in bold, saturated pastels. These vibrant colors are warm and joyous, bringing life to your complexion and cheer to the wedding!

2. Sequins

There’s nothing more glamorous than some shimmer and sparkle, which is why sequin dresses are always popular. This year some beautiful new styles make it easier than ever to shine. Moms can choose from metallic cocktail party sheaths to head-to-toe sequins, sequins, and lace, or half sequins styles like a classic empire waist gown with a sequin bodice and elegant chiffon skirt.

3. Floral Dresses

Florals are in the spotlight more than ever before. They’re a lively, feminine way to express your unique style and are perfect for casual weddings and outdoor garden ceremonies. Whether it’s a short floral dress, high-low midi, or full-length gown with floral embroidery or sequins, florals are romantic and modern in 2023.

4. Flirty Details

Ruffles, frills, and flounce are other popular trends. Look for loose, flowy bell and flutter sleeves, layered chiffon evening tops and dresses, and flirty ruffle hemlines. These feminine dresses are meant to move, so be sure to get on the dance floor and fly!

5. Tea Length and Midi Hemlines

Tea Length or Midi hemlines are trending because they offer the best of both worlds. They’re elegant like long gowns but cover your legs more than a short cocktail dress, and moms love that! The modern twist is that many are high-low, meaning higher in the front and longer in the back. High-low midis allow you to dress modestly, show a little leg, and not look old!

  1. My daughter’s wedding dress is all lace. I would like to know what fabric I should get my dress in.

    I’m not sure what would go with lace.

    Thank you

    1. Hi Donna,
      Congratulations, Mother of the Bride! How proud you must be, and how lovely your daughter will look in all lace. Satin, Chiffon, Taffeta, Dupioni Satin, Chiffon, and even a nice Jersey mixed with some colored lace would be fine. You Have a lot of choices. Have fun. Cheers, Deborah

    1. Hi Julie

      I, too, am giving away my daughter, and I am having an awful time trying to find something that I think is suitable….did you find anything, and could you give me some tips, pleeeeaaasssee I’m pulling my hair out!!!

      Thank you


  2. Hi, who is the designer of the first dress featured – the blue one? It’s beautiful, and I think it, or a similar dress, might be a good fit for my mom to wear at my wedding this summer.


  3. Melissa, why do you say that? You should pick a length that is flattering for you and that you will feel relaxed, comfortable, and beautiful in! Many pictures will probably be from the waist up anyway, so I think that as long as your dress length is appropriate (not a micro mini!), you will be good to go! My primary consideration would be to avoid a size that falls to the broadest part of your calf, making your leg look heavier. Enjoy your special day! :)

It's your life. Make it Fabulous!
