Fifties Style Mother of the Bride Dresses

If your son or daughter is getting married then finding the perfect outfit is probably top of your list right now. I'm sure the bride will look beautiful and all but let's talk about YOU! 🙂

Fifties style dresses make a perfect choice for a mother of the bride or groom. They're super flattering for all ages, shapes and sizes, comfortable enough to wear all day long and also perfect for cutting a rug on that wedding dance floor.

Twin Sets for the Win

Our new girls Renee and Maybelle are twinset dresses with matching jackets for that perfectly coordinated vintage look. Amazing value too for a complete outfit compared to buying them separately.


Style on your sleeves
If you feel more comfortable with a built in sleeve, Vanda and Lisette both come in lots of colours. Add a petticoat for extra wow factor and to make that waist look teeny!



Sassy & Hourglassy
If you'd rather go for a wiggle shape, Tiffany, Jekyll and Zsa Zsa have some serious sass. Zsa Zsa comes with co-ordinating shrug so you don't have to shop for a matching jacket.

Shrug it off
If you prefer a dress without sleeves, we've lots of gorgeous shrugs and bolero jackets that complement our dresses, meaning you can whip the shrug off for the evening do and put your hands in the air like you just don't care. With so many dresses and shrugs to choose from you can go matchy-matchy or pick a contrasting colour to suit your style. If you're not confident with colour, you can even bring a little black dress to life with a  jacket, shoes, hat or fascinator and clutch bag in the same bright colour against a plain black base.

Split the difference

Separates also make a stylish choice and they give you more flexibility on the fit if you are a different size top and bottom. A black Dorelia top is a really versatile addition to any occasionwear repertoire. If your top is plain choose a fabulous print skirt to style the show - a Marnie or Ohlson skirt has lots of options to choose from.

      Hi Sam, yes the red Dorelia top is a separate top, but if you prefer a dress the top half of our Ophelia dresses is the same. You shouldn’t find them too low cut xx

    I’m just looking at ‘Renee’ Navy Bird Print Twin Set. It’s beautiful. I was wondering if it’s small/big fitting and is there any “give” in the dress? I’m not sure what size should I order if I decide to buy it. Have you any pictures of it on a person/model ? Thank You!
