Mumsy not mumsy

Are you a Mother of the Bride (hereafter referred to as MOB) or a Mother of the Groom (MOG)?   

At TWP HQ, we often find women want something special & elegant but not as formal and fussy as traditional MOB and MOG looks. If your son or daughter are getting married abroad or in a rustic barn or an outdoor venue, it just doesn’t seem to fit with the structured-dress-and-jacket look that seemed to be the go-to look of all MOB/MOGs.  

If this is the quandary your MOB or MOG finds themselves in, why not suggest one of the following: 

  • Buy something on the high street – could be risky as they might end up wearing the same as another wedding guest. 
  • Wear something they already have 
  • Hire something – very sustainable and a fraction of the cost of a designer outfit 
  • They find a dressmaker and get something bespoke – not always as expensive as you would think and guaranteed no one else at the wedding will be wearing the same. 
  • A mix of all of the above – find a dressmaker to alter something you already have or a high street bargain, and hire a hat! 

You may even find something on the high street but might need something tweaking; a sleeve added maybe, perhaps a bit of bling?  

At TWP HQ, we’d love to feature your MOB or MOG in a future blog if they would like us to track their journey. Who knows, they may even discover the next Stella McCartney.
