Can you think of anything worse than going to a wedding as mother of the bride or groom, and another guest is wearing the same outfit? Not sure where to start and what to wear

At Atelier Ferrari+Monti we find that wedding outfits for mothers of the bride or groom should represent your style and personality with an elegant and contemporary look.

"I don't want to look like the typical mother of the bride/groom, it's not my style! And I'm worried about going shopping on the high street in case someone picks the same dress." These are the most frequent comments we hear from our customers.

Having an outfit made for you means you are in control. It will fit you perfectly, making you feel both comfortable and confident for this special, once in a lifetime celebration.


All mother of the bride outfit orders start with a consultation about the type of wedding you're attending, your favourite colours and a general idea of style. Pictures, inspirations from magazines and even a garment you already own are a great start to begin creating the perfect outfit.

For special occasions, we usually plan 3 to 4 fittings so the sooner you can come in for a consultation the better. Choosing the right fabric can take time and sometimes we need to order swatches of different colours and materials before the final decision.


For summer weddings, the end of January is the best time to book an appointment for a first consultation. That's because the new season’s fabrics have just arrived from Italy so you can choose from our whole range of materials.

The end of July is the perfect time for upcoming winter weddings. The process of creating your mother of the bride outfit starts around 8-10 weeks before the event with 5 fittings scheduled ahead.
