For such a very special day you want to ensure you choose the perfect outfit. There are no rules of course, but there are traditions and things to bear in mind when choosing an outfit.
Most mothers look for a dress that blends with the bride's chosen colours and often uses the bridesmaids' dresses as a palette. It's usual to avoid white, ivory, black or red or anything too bright or overdone. If you're unsure, talk to the bride for her opinion because, let's face it, it's her big day! The main thing is that everyone feels comfortable and beautiful.
Here’s some great boutiques where you can choose from a wide range of ladies' and girls' fashions based in the North East from places like Newcastle, Sunderland, Durham, Middlesbrough, Tyneside and Northumberland, whom you might want to get in touch with...
Don't forget to mention Your North East Wedding magazine when contacting a boutique for your mother of the bride outfit or formal formal wear for ladies and girls.

Should you get married on Mother's Day?
Choosing your wedding date is one of the most important things when it comes to planning your wedding. We are very quickly moving from traditional etiquette into a society where we are far more flexible with these. Award Winning UK Wedding Planner - Illy Goodall from Illy Elizabeth Weddings shares her insight into whether you should get married on Mother's Day.
There are certain days within the year that you should try to avoid getting married, however with the backlog of weddings this year we are using any given date possible. Whilst I don't think there is personally anything wrong with setting the date for Mother's Day, it can be inconvenient for some people who wish to spend this day with family.
