Burgundy Mother of the Bride Dress
Much has been made of Art Deco styles and Downton Abbey and Gatsby-themed weddings for the bride and groom. So what should the mother of the bride wear? As I was putting together this burgundy mother of the bride look, it started to emerge as a slightly Art Deco style dress -- although it reminds me of Boardwalk Empire style slightly more than Downton Abbey.
How to Accessorize a Burgundy Dress
I wanted to feature this dress because this burgundy color is so lovely for fall and winter weddings. Nearly every mother of the bride request I get asks for some sort of sleeve on the gown, and this dress has them! This pretty tiered lace looks like it would be supremely flattering. I played up the Art Deco style with the accessories I chose, but this would go perfectly with gold, crystal and diamond accessories. For a more monochromatic, one could choose ruby and garnet stones and could be styled with a modern look as well. What do you think? Is it a good choice for a mother of the bride or groom at a winter wedding?
