Gray Short Length Lace Dress for the Mother of the Bride or Mother of the Groom
Silver or gray is a classic color for instant elegance, making it a favorite for Mothers-of-the-Bride, and and as long as the grey isn't too pale, well-heeled wedding guests. This gray lace sheath dress is a tailored style with exquisite lace detail that accents the clean and flattering silhouette of this dress - it's a classic look!
To let the detail in the lace stand out, I've chosen understated accessories in similar neutral metallic tones - with a pearl bracelet and mother of pearl earrings, along with subtle metallic details in the clutch and pumps.
Dark Gray Lace Cocktail Dress for a Wedding Guest
While this look was primarily created for a mother of the bride seeking a polished cocktail length dress, this dress could just as easily be worn by wedding guest for a more-than appropriate wedding look. When looking at gray dresses for a wedding guest, just be sure to stick to the dark grey or beige "smoked oyster" color , and avoid anything too light or ivory.
