While we will be closed on Mother’s Day to spend the day celebrating our moms AND the moms on staff here at Something New, we wanted to share a few shopping tips for our Mothers of the bride or groom and let you in on our May Promotion just for moms!
During the ENTIRE month of May, if you say YES to your Mother of the bride or groom dress at Something New you will receive a FREE protective garment bag and a pair of formal earrings to complete your wedding day look! We love celebrating our moms and thought it was only fitting that we celebrate you everyday in the month of May.
#1 Follow The Bride
When you start your Mother of the Bride dress search for the big day, talk to the bride first. The bride and groom determine the formality, color palette and style for the wedding day so let them guide you when it comes to shopping! Mothers of the Groom, connect with the Mother of the Bride on what she’s wearing before you choose your own attire!
If you are ordering your dress, it is important to order your dress early enough to make any alterations once you receive your dress! Mothers dresses can sometimes take as long as wedding dresses to come in so it is essential to have enough time to make any changes! If you are on a bit of a time crunch, we always have an “out of the collection” option at Something New. If the bride gives you a specific date to order your dress, be sure to book your Something New appointment as soon as possible!
#3 Coordinate Colors
Don’t forget about color coordination when you are searching for your dress! The color of your dress should compliment the rest of the wedding party while respecting any of the bride’s specific requests. It’s also worth noting that the mother of the bride should typically choose her dress before the mother of the groom. While it is nice to discuss dress options beforehand, the mother of the groom should consult with the mother of the bride when choosing her gown so you are both able to shine individually on the big day!
