Beautiful outfits for the mother of the bride/groom.
On the big day, all the emphasis and attention will be directed towards the bride & groom, and rightly so. But the mother of the bride and not forgetting the groom’s Mum, should also be made to feel just as important. So when all the wedding details have been finalised, the suppliers booked and the joy of helping your daughter choose her beautiful wedding gown completed, now should be the time for you.
Try to focus on the overall look you would like to achieve for yourself, as this should be just as an exciting time for you too. Why not make it a day out with your daughter and enjoy the whole experience, as it’s not often you will buy something as special as this. Remember too, it is essential you feel not only comfortable but also confident for the whole wedding day. So hold on to your hat, what a fabulous season of beautiful fashions we have for you at Classy Rags to choose from!
Trends and designs over the past twenty years have changed dramatically and all have brought their own special style to the occasion wear market.
Spain is currently the market leader in occasion wear design and that’s why we have been stocking more and more fabulous Spanish brands.
New to the UK last year was Sonia Pena and Carla Ruiz which had a fantastic reaction due to their fabulous design and keen prices. Presen and Mireia of Barcelona are also a must to look out for and new to Classy Rags and the occasion wear market is Carina, a new and exciting Spanish brand.
Whilst talking about market leaders we must not forget about the UK market leader, John Charles, who every year never fails to disappoint.
The 2011 collections at Classy Rags just get better and you can be sure you will find just what you’re looking for, with most available in sizes 8 to 24. Stylish dresses and boleros are always very popular however, you may prefer something a little less formal and relaxed for a civil or late afternoon wedding, or perhaps even a wedding abroad. If so, then soft less structured dresses or maxi dresses would be perfect for the occasion.
Colour of course is always a major player when choosing your outfit, however you should never feel the need to co-ordinate with the theme of the wedding. It is far more important that you choose the colour that is right for you.
Colour trends for 2010 were bold and bright and this has followed through again for 2011.
Various shades of purple and pink are going to be popular again and a strong theme running through the collections will be floral prints in lilacs, lemons, pale greens and blues mixed with rich charcoal. Black and white is always a popular and very chic look along with navy and white which becoming popular again.
With our extensive choice of fabulous hats and fascinators available at Classy Rags, plus matching shoes and bags in many colours, your beautiful outfit will be fully complete. All that is left to do now is enjoy the wonderful wedding!
