Do bring Spanx, as it gives a nice smooth fit when trying the gowns. Dear ladies don't hesitate to bring your other lady friends or your very own daughter.

 Once upon a time, mothers of the bride were expected to wear matronly dresses in Easter-egg pastels or washed out shades of beige. Thankfully, that's in the past. But now that they're free to express their sartorial sensibilities, determining what the mother of the bride should wear with so many fashionable options can be incredibly overwhelming. Talk about spoiled for choice! Never fear.Whether you're a bride who's hoping to help your mom find the perfect look or the mater familias to the lucky lady herself, we've got the who, what, when, where and how of MOB dress shopping here at Omaima Couture.

   According to our bridal experts, you should start searching for your dress no later than three moths before the wedding to allow time for special orders and alterations. You may choose to look in department or specialty stores for your dress, but don't pass over traditional bridal salons. Many have options for the mother of the bride, as well!
It is customary for the mother of the bride to buy her dress first and to then share her choice with the mother of the groom. The mother of the groom might also need special orders and alterations, so be sure to give her ample time to accomplish this before the wedding. The mothers' dresses don't have to match (unless that's what the bride wants), but they should complement each other. Remember, you'll be taking lots of pictures together and the only person who should stand out is the bride.
