It doesn’t get anymore glamorous than when blush and pewter are combined!!
Forget the traditional frou frou frocks and take a look at my top 5 selection of stylish mother of the bride outfits! You want something that your mum can wear again and again, not hide at the back of the wardrobe once the wedding is over!
And remember it’s not just about the outfit, think about the accessories too. A statement necklace and clutch bag can spruce up any outfit!
I’m sure that if you had the budget and didn’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings then you would invite everyone from the office. However, we all know that this isn’t always possible. So what do you do when you only want to invite some of your work colleagues? Well, you’re not just going to invite a colleague just for the sake of it, you’re more likely to invite someone that you have lunch with, meet up with outside of work etc. So, once you have decided on your final guest list, and sent out invites, let your invited colleagues know that you want to keep ‘wedding talk’ to a minimum when in the office. This way those that you have not invited won’t feel excluded or offended. It’s all about sensitivity, and to treat others how you would like to be treated in a similar situation. You should also bear in mind that people do understand how expensive weddings can be and therefore those who didn’t make your guest list should understand why you could not invite everyone.
