After all, she too will need a dress that stands out from the crowd.

We spoke to, which gives mother of the bride’s a list of boutiques from around the country, to get a few tips to help your mum make the most shopping for a special outfit on your big day.

A representative for the company told us: “Research the shops you want to visit and set aside time for a lovely relaxing lunch.”

She also advised not to start shopping for an outfit until the bride had chosen her dress as this would set the tone for the wedding and really help with your choice of outfit.

Mother of the Bride’s should also talk to their daughters and find out what the bridesmaids are wearing so “they don’t clash.”

She also advised mother of the brides to “shop at the right time of year.

“For Spring/Summer weddings, stock is in store from January. For Autumn/Winter weddings, stock is in store from July,” she said.
