Momma Mia! As the Spanish put it. Here comes another big day in your life. Your daughter, the piece of your heart is all set to walk down the aisle to marry the man of her dreams. You know the real star of the show is going to be your oh-so-gorgeous, accomplished and pretty daughter. For that reason your best supporting role deserves a red carpet look too. The mother of the bride dresses up to look phenomenal as well as shine in her own exquisite style.

THINK THAT YOU ARE GOING TO OSCARS

Savvy mothers, there is a new deadline for you to get all in shape, spic and span for the wedding day. The wedding date of your daughter’s is a new incentive to bring some epic changes. Hit the gym to start a new fitness regimen, consult your beautician, get skin treatments, get your hair color changed, switch to healthier diets and even learn to meditate.

SHARE YOUR IDEAS WITH THE BRIDE

Give up your momzilla attitude and share your ideas about how you wish to dress at her wedding. She will for sure come forward with all her heart to suggest and make you dazzle on her big day. The max that will happen is that you will listen to her and compromise on her choice. As a plus size mother of the bride dresses are a little tricky to select and carry, a simple silhouette in beige, navy or dusty green with same colored embellishments will leave smiley faces all around.

DO NOT RUN AFTER THE TRADITION

Traditionally one would only select a dress or a gown to a wedding but it may not we preferred by all for various reasons. Weddings now days have veered from countryside casual to beachy outdoor or to more offbeat venues like a boat or a mountain top just like the wedding attires have and are no more as formal as previous days. Keep the kind of the wedding, time of the day, venue also if any religious customs involved and dress in something out of the box. You can show up like a blingy movie star in one shoulder jumpsuit, a floral tea length nipped in the waist frock or a lightly embellished tunic over dressy pants to go with sandals.

VISIT THE SALON

Make an appointment at least a month before the wedding day. So that you can book with your favorite stylist as well as the makeup artist. And if you can afford to so, get a trial makeup and styling done, to not go wrong or screwed at run time. SPLURGE! It is your daughter’s wedding.

ENJOY THE MOMENT

It is a big day, for you as well as your daughter. Do not waste your energy fretting over the caterer or the photographer. Just be yourself, listen to music that calms your nerves, spray on your favorite perfume head to toe and ENJOY. Show up on time; be with your daughter who is nervous about walking through the aisle. And be assured that “mummy” can still turn heads.
