As a mother of the bride you want your gown to be timeless, classic, and elegant, above all. But it can also be modern and subtly represent the trends and the times. The Pantone color of the year, Living Coral, an animated coral hue with rich gold undertones, is festive and flattering and can be perfect for a mother of the bride (or groom!) dress that wows.
The bright, pinky orange hue is flattering for most skin tones and hair colors. Wear it or use it to accessorize at any of your wedding events. It can be dresses up or down and we have a variety of coral options at Teri Jon, from daytime to evening for all of your mother of the bride needs.
We also love a more subtle pink, rose gold, or a rich orange shade for a similar, but more subtle look. Read on for some great mother of the bride dress suggestions in coral and styling advice.
This juicy watermelon color is modern and bright. The full skirt is incredibly flattering and the high low silhouette adds an extra fancy touch that signals that you’re an important part of the big day. The details are what really make this style stand out. We love the gorgeous embellished buttons and the whimsical oversized bow at he waist. We just know you’re going to love the way this dress stands out in pictures and the way you can comfortably dance all night long.
This pretty day to evening style is a perfect example of how wearable living coral can be. The floral pattern is pretty without being overwhelming, the slight ruching at the waist is flattering, and the half sleeves add the perfect modest touch for a ceremony that is held in a house of worship. It’s light and comfortable so that you won’t have to worry about your dress when all your attention should be on the wedding. We especially love the unexpected angled neckline.
We know this bright tangerine cocktail dress is much more orange than a true coral, but we love it so much that we had to feature it. The cape overlay is incredibly flattering and will suit women with an “apple” shape. The starburst embellishments are like built in jewelry. Depending on the venue and level of formality you may be able to wear this on the big day itself, or, it may be better suited to an engagement party or rehearsal dinner. Either way, you will look back on this dress fondly.
