I have been mother of the bride...and....

not that easy...especially if you are related. So I

you to help with colors and makeup!!

Heading to a Wedding - An infographic by the team at Mother Of The Bride Outfits


  1. Love the color harmonizing. I am still not sure what I am. My eyes are blue green with gold center. My skin is light with golden tones. Would this be warm autumn? Hair is med, brown with reds and gold. any comments are appreciated. Thank you :)

  2. Hi Beyondbeige. I'm from the team who put the chart together, so i am glad you liked it. It doesn't look like you'll be warm autumn as your eyes are blue green and the eye colours for warm autumn are brown, olive green and dark hazel. I'd say you might be warm spring as you have blue/olive green eyes and golden beige skintone also the hair choices range from deep golden blonde to light golden brown and coppery red. It all seem to fit well with what you've described. Hope this helps :-)

  3. This is great. I was mother of the groom last Friday. I looked at the color chart (I'm a deep winter) and yay I got it right!!!
    Will keep this post for the next one....

  4. This is a wonderful post! I like the color chart and will save it. What a great idea:) I'm sure you were a lovely mother of the bride/groom:) My kids are 21 and 24 ~ so I've started to think about weddings some day:)


  5. Thank you. I think I am a warm spring.

  6. What a great share! Visiting today from Thursday's Favorite Things. :)

  7. Deep winter all the way, baby! But as I mentioned when I commented a few days ago, these colour guidelines can be circumvented here and there if you go about it the right way. I can definitely wear all the winter colours and most of the summer colours too.

    I'm not a mother of the anything, but I've going to be sister-in-law of the bride (is that a thing?) in Sept. Looking forward to that - we're all off to Northern France for a few days for the wedding. :)

    1. Oh, one more thing... I'm highly in favour of wearing colour to weddings, not just black or business-like outfits in navy or grey. I think a wedding calls for something a bit festive and a LBD just doesn't cut if for me.

  8. Thank you Unwell and thank you O5F4! I struggle so much with finding things to wear that look good and feel good. I love your blog and have learned so much. Sigh. I guess this means I have to throw out all my black. ;0

  9. Well that is awesome! Hugs and Thank you for sharing at the hop :-)
