How to Get Your Mom to Agree on Your Wedding Dress

It can be tough if she doesn't like it.

Given the generation gap and even something as simple as different taste, a bride may hope her mom gets emotional when she finds “the one” only to discover her mom doesn’t even like the dress. The good news is there are ways to turn her opinion around; particularly if you will have multiple dress shopping appointments.

Wedding Fashion - FAQ

What style of wedding dress should I wear?

When choosing a wedding dress for your ceremony, it's important to choose a gown that makes you feel like a beautiful bride and fits the style of your wedding. There are an array of silhouettes, fabrics, embellishments and more that go into your choice of wedding dress, but the wedding dresses that you should gravitate toward are the styles that will totally fit in with your wedding events. 


Modern brides tend to go for more sleek fabrics with unique bows and detailing and boho brides love lace gowns or floral details; however, every bride has a different style and preference for the look she desires for the big day. Spring and summer weddings typically call for bridal gowns that may have lighter fabrics, while fall and winter celebrations are perfect for heavier fabrics and materials.


We encourage every bride to try on a range of styles for her wedding day when shopping for The One, as it's important to not only follow the trend you like and have been eyeing but also choose a look from a designer that you love, even if it wasn't one you were planning on. The sign of the best wedding dress is the one that makes you feel like a beauty!

If you're on the search for wedding fashion inspiration, you're likely looking forward to Bridal Fashion Week.

What wedding accessories do I need?
