Can the mother of the bride wear a trouser suit?

Yes of course they can! In fact, trouser suits are becoming an increasingly popular choice for mothers of the bride (and groom). They offer all the elegance and formality of a dress, without the fuss.

What color should the mother of the bride or groom wear?

When it comes to choosing a color for your trouser suit, it is best to go for something classic and timeless, like black, navy, or gray. These colors will never go out of style and will make you look chic and elegant on your child’s big day.

If you want to be a little more daring, you can opt for a brighter color, like red or pink. Just make sure that the suit is not too loud or flashy, as it should complement the bride and not upstage her on her big day.
