BRIDAL GURU / May 25, 2022


It's a big moment for your daughter: she's getting married! Your little girl is all grown up, and we're sure you want to look your best on her wedding day.

Gold is a classic color for mother of the bride dresses. It still exudes elegance, luxury, and warmth no matter what style you choose.

Today, we're showing you five gold dresses for mothers of the bride. From classic and conservative to sexy and bold, you're about to find your dream look for this special day.

1. Off-the-shoulder A-line dress

Weddings are full of love. If you're looking to capture that vibe in your gold mother of the bride dress, this look is for you.

This romantic look starts with a sweetheart neckline, which is cut to mimic the top of a heart. Can a dress embrace the love in the air more than that?!

This neckline, paired with off-the-shoulder sleeves, creates an ultra-feminine bodice and the perfect canvas for your favorite necklace.

We also love this look for its A-line silhouette. An A-line silhouette cinches the waist and flares out to create an "A" shape. It's flattering on any figure.

Because this isn't just any wedding, we encourage you to rock some sparkle on your dress. There's no need to blend in when your daughter's getting married!

2. Mermaid dress with feathers and detachable cape

For the mamas out there looking for a bold and sexy look, this gold mother of the bride dress is screaming your name.

Mermaid-style dresses hug your curves and flare out at the knee, creating a "mermaid tail" effect. It accentuates your natural hourglass curves—so if you got it, flaunt it!

To dial up the sexy, this mother of the bride dress also has an illusion deep-V neckline. Don't worry, the mesh keeps everything in place, so you can still dance the night away.

Now let's talk about the statement details. The feathers are oh-so-unique, and a detachable mesh cape will add drama to your look. Yes, this is not your average mother of the bride dress!

3. Chiffon dress with scoop neck and cap sleeves

Looking for a gold mother of the bride dress that radiates elegance? Here's a royal look you'll love.

Of course, you're halfway there with a gold dress. Gold is a luxurious color fit for royals.

But you can also capture this vibe with your neckline and sleeves. A scoop, rounded neckline, and cap sleeves are typical of royal wear. (Kate Middleton, is that you?)

When it comes to fabrics and embellishments, we recommend choosing a flattering, airy fabric like chiffon and opting for sophisticated embroidery like beads. You can also add some elegant accessories, like a floral hairpiece or pearl earrings.

4. A-line embellished dress with long sleeves

Your gold mother of the bride dress doesn't have to be over the top. You can also create a conservative look while rocking this stunning metallic color.

One way to do that is going for full or ¾ length sleeves. You can choose mesh sleeves delicately embroidered with lace or jewels to keep this look modern.

We also recommend an A-line silhouette. If you choose chiffon fabric, the dress will fall loosely on your body rather than flaring out dramatically.

If you want to balance out this lightweight fabric dress, opt for a sheer neckline over a high or scoop neck. This is the perfect look to throw your hair up and wear shoulder-grazing earrings or a necklace that sits on the collarbone.

If your daughter's wedding is in the winter, this dress will also keep you nice and warm!

5. Appliqué dress with deep-V neckline 

Mothers of the bride: if you're looking for a dress that's totally on trend, this gold gown is for you.

Appliqué embroidery is a textile art form in which one fabric is decoratively stitched on top of another to create a 3D effect—and it's hot, hot, hot this season.

Appliqué will also add some volume to your A-line skirt. Unlike a flowy fabric like chiffon, this textured fabric will create a more dramatic silhouette.

As you can tell, we're big fans of V necklines. It adds sex appeal without compromising comfort. It's perfect for fashionable mothers who still want to feel secure in their dresses.
