The colour theme for my daughter’s wedding is pastels with overtones of very light metallic shades. Obviously I want to look my best but I want to avoid looking too similar colour-wise to the bride. What’s your advice?Pastels are failsafe wedding colours that are timeless and elegant. Tey are always fashionable and don’t date so you’ll look back at photos of your daughter’s wedding in years to come and know that you looked fantastic.

A teeny bit of texture can add a point of interest to a head-to-toe pastel outft, and style 11240 (lef) in ‘blush’ is made in beautiful cloqué fabric with subtle texture, which is gorgeous and also gives you a slick, clean silhouette. Te dress has sof pleats around the neckline and a touch of sparkle with beading under the bustline.
Or, if you don’t fancy being pretty in pink and want to try some metallic tones, something in luxurious silk such as 90356 (below) might be more your style. In platinum and cream, with a slightly darker shade close to your face, you are certain to complement the bride without cramping her style.
Tis gorgeous style has stunning pearl and diamante beading and applique, so you can keep your accessories simple with just a pearl necklace for classic elegant mother-of-the-bride style.I wear a lot of black and I am not a big fan of colour, but I know I can’t wear black to my daughter’s wedding! Can you help me ﬁnd something suitably stylish for the big day that isn’t too darkTis is your season! High summer 2014 is all about ‘monochrome madness’ and don’t worry, although all-black is not the done thing for weddings, it is absolutely fne and considered super-stylish to wear an outft with black contrast. Condici’s style 70782 (top right) is a perfect example of modern wedding chic, combining two of the major trends of the season: lace and monochrome.
Tis beautiful outft will gently coax you out from under your security blanket of black clothes and your daughter will be thrilled to see you looking so glamorous! Te top of the dress is beautiful black and white lace with a short sleeve, and the georgette layers are fattering on all fgure shapes.My son’s wedding will be at a glamorous city venue and both the ceremony and reception will be taking place under the same roof, with the celebrations going on late into the night. I feel like the traditional ‘dress and jacket’ look might be too much but I am worried that if I wear a dress on its own, I won’t look like the mum of the groom. What would you suggest?A fabulous single dress can be just as dressy as the more conventional ‘dress and jacket’ or ‘dress and coat’ look – you just need to choose the right one! Keeping in mind that you will be in the same indoor venue all day with the reception continuing until the early hours, you need something not only amazing but that will also go the distance. Condici’s 11246 (above right) is perfect for your big day. A striking ruched print dress with monochrome tones and pink fowers is fnished of beautifully with ruched tulle shoulder feature, intricate embroidery details and elbow-length sleeves. Tis demure dress will take you from ceremony to spinning around on the dancefoor, and you can easily wear it again. Don’t forget, this is your day to shine – bride aside; you’re front row.
