Featured Mother of the Bride/Groom Dress: Marsoni MV 1186

This sophisticated mother dress by Marsoni is a sleeveless, bateau neck, double faced satin gown. Additionally, it has subtle ruching at the waistline. A beaded vine motif applique highlights the dramatic drape over the slitted skirt. This gown is offered in popular color choices such as black, royal blue, deep green and wine.

Overall, one of the most often repeated replies I hear when asking a mother what she’s looking for in a gown is this one: ”I don’t want anything too beaded”. And, there are various reasons why I hear this on a constant loop.

After all, some people genuinely don’t like the look of too much embellishment! Conversely, they might think it draws too much attention. As a result, some moms express their worry that they’ll “outshine” the Bride. Likewise, they might worry they’ll “overshadow” the other mother. Whatever the opposition to those beaded statement dresses, we are happy to offer classically elegant gowns. This is where the Marsoni MV1186 comes in for their big day.

Sophisticated Marsoni MV 1186 Mother Dress Details

At first glance this is a deceptively simple gown. The comfortable bateau neckline sits right below the collar bone and offers modesty without looking frumpy. The modified scoop back is demure and hits right at the bra line so no speciality foundation piece is needed. And while some may shy away from a sleeveless gown on principle, it does offer more range of movement and comfort especially in warmer months.

Accessories for The Sophisticated Mother Dress

The pin tuck ruching along the bodice is designed to minimize the waistline while drawing the eye to the dramatic drape. The only embellishment on this gown, the beaded vine motif applique added at the waistline, bumps this gown up in formality making it more fitting for an honorific to wear in contrast to just something a guest would wear. Demurely hidden under the side drape is a slitted skirt which keeps this sophisticated mother dress from giving off a prom vibe. 

Accessories should be kept minimal in keeping with the overall minimalist aesthetic of the gown. A necklace would get lost in the neckline and bracelets not only could damage the gown, but veer into overkill. Earrings that would match the gemstones in the applique are easily found to complete the look.
