This pretty blue beaded gown is a beautiful dress for any formal occasion, but today I’ve styled it with the mother-of-the-bride or mother-of-the-groom in mind.

Today’s look was created with summer and spring coastal and seaside weddings in mind! What’s a mother-of-the-bride or mother-of-the-groom to wear to these events? I think this pretty cornflower blue color is a great choice! It also comes in a navy blue version for those who want even more nautical flair. I just thought this shade of blue was so unusually pretty, and that the gown has such flattering lines and subtle beading, that it would be wonderful choice for mothers in beach side or seaside wedding parties.
For accessories, if there was one trend I noticed it the recent red carpet events, it was that many stars (and their stylists) chose to exactly match accessories and jewels to the dress. I tend to do lots of matched looks–although I do enjoy a contrasting color as well–and since this dress was such a pretty blue, I thought it would be a good idea to follow that trend accent this gown with earrings and a necklace that would pick up on that pretty blue shade even more. A neutral metallic shoe and clutch, somewhere between both gold and silver, finish the look.
So, if you find that you’re in a role of honor at a nautical wedding at a yacht club or coastal venue, and wondering what to wear– this would be a great look to choose!
