Trendy is not usually the first thing that comes to mind when you think of traditional mother of the groom dresses. However, if you have seen our unique mother outfits you will know there are some modern options out there.

For the modern mothers out there it can be harder to find a trendy outfit. My biggest piece of advice is to look past traditional mother of the bride outfits and look at black tie or formal outfit options.

So I don’t believe the mother of the bride or groom should dress any differently so I tend to aim at both mothers.

But, yous have asked and asked so here is a blog just for the mother of the groom, but the mother of the brides you’re welcome too!
