I’m searching for a mother of the bride outfit that is a sophisticated look suitable for an older mother of the bride to wear to her daughter’s August wedding. If someone is asked to describe the way I look, I’d like them to say I’m pleasantly plump. The mother of the bride dresses I’ve been trying on just aren’t for me. I look in the mirror and say to myself, “What am I doing in this silly dress?” Do you have a creative solution to this wedding dilemma?

Living close to Newport, you are in luck looking for mother of the bride dress code ideas at this time. The answer is to attend the Newport Flower Show this weekend June 19-21, 2015. At booth #24 you’ll find couture special occasion jackets by the ever so chic Maria Pucci.
In choosing one of Maria Pucci’s lovely handmade jackets you have more options to coordinate with the wedding colors, which typically match the wedding color scheme, by simply changing a trim, button or other detail to coordinate with the theme.
For instance, instead of a corsage, your jacket can have a floral pattern in one of the wedding colors. The beauty of the Newport Long Coat (photo above upper left) is that it is a formal jacket.
Because it is not a long dress, it won’t compete with the bride’s wedding gown, the arms are covered for a religious ceremony, and the mother-of-the-bride is freer to move around the reception to greet and dance with guests.
Ahead of time go to Maria-Pucci to check out the brilliant designs of her versatile couture jackets.
These beautifully made special occasion jackets are not only for the mother of the bride, but are a popular choice as cocktail attire — especially for wearing when entertaining or being entertained day or night.
These wonderful jackets are made for the young at heart.
