The NotWedding team always look to our friends at BHLDN for the most beautiful, refreshing trends in bridal fashion. This season they have managed to blow us away again; we are swooning over these gorgeous mother of the bride or groom gowns. You know they always say when mama’s happy, everybody’s happy and while we want the bride to be the belle of the ball on her wedding day, we believe her mother should feel beautiful, too.
BHLDN has partnered with the best in the business yet again for their Spring ’14 collection – Tadashi, David Meister and Badgley Mischka, to name a few. Look for exquisite detailing such as metallic lace, embroidery, brocade, chunky 3D lace or sequins and beading, and stick with a color palette of rich neutrals for a sophisticated, timeless look that still feels fresh. Here are BHLDN’s picks for on-trend looks for the mothers of the bride and groom.
