Heading to a Wedding? Failsafe looks for the Mother-of-the-Bride

Is your daughter celebrating her special day this summer? There’s no need to fret if you’re worried about what to wear – we’ve done the hard work for you. Whatever your budget, our pick of the season’s chicest trends will ensure you’re the most stylish wedding guest.


A simple shift dress in an exotic jewel hue looks fabulous teamed with contrasting accessories. Keep makeup simple and hair sleek for a fuss-free finish. If head-to-toe colour isn’t your thing, try a brightly coloured tailored jacket with classic white staples.





Does colour make your cringe? Neutral hues are a stylish solution if you prefer biscuit shades to statement brights. Simply add metallic accessories for a pop of shimmer.

Top Tip: Invest in a timeless jacket that will surpass seasonal trends. You’ll be able to wear it dressed up and down, time and time again.





Pretty florals are synonymous with wedding dressing, and there’s no need for this to feel frumpy. Opt for a vintage silhouette with an oversized pattern – not only will this flatter, but it will ensure you feel fabulous. If you desire a little more coverage, try a kimono-inspired bed jacket with an understated shift.

Hi I'm Kate, in a previous life I was Womenswear Editor but these days you are more likely to find me pouring over a planning calendar than the latest copy of Elle in my role as Online Content Producer. A Northern tourist in London, some of my favourite things in life include red wine, chutney (accompanied by cheese), sequins, grey cashmere and Matt Damon. I am known in the HoF office for owning far too many coats for one person, laughing too loud, and drinking full fat Coke only when hungover. My life's ambition is a simple one; to own a Puggle.
