Playing the part
At Lalage Beaumont we aim to offer a sophisticated selection of non-fussy, understated outfits for mothers of brides or mother of the groom that are chic, modern, elegant and flattering. We also hope that most of the pieces we offer will be things you want to wear again rather than being an expensive one-off that is left hanging in the wardrobe after the big day.
Looking the part as the mother of the bride is hugely important to many women and we understand that you want to mark the special event with your outfit just as much as the bride. We aim to take away some of the stress by helping you find what suits your colouring and your personality and once chosen, we have a wide selection of hats designed to go with the collection to complete your outfit. Handbags and jewellery too are available and also good advice on where to go for shoes.
Making your selection
We have noticed this season an increasing number of our customers are asking for trousers and coat to match rather than a dress. The beautiful top and palazzo pants that Amal Clooney chose for her civil ceremony was a real benchmark in how to look chic in trousers for a formal occasion. Our silk dress coats paired with trousers create a stunning look that carries well into the evening and fits the bill if you are really not comfortable wearing a dress. The other trend we have noticed recently is the increasing number of weddings that are taking place abroad, sometimes in very hot climates. The traditional tailored outfit is obviously too hot and silk chiffon or lightweight shantung is really more the order of the day.
Even for weddings closer to home, the style has changed a lot since the days when the bride and groom 'went away' and everyone went home. We may be moving closer to the black tie and evening dress worn for many American weddings but in the mean time, as morning wear and hats are still popular for the afternoon, do these still look right for the evening? If you do want to change for the evening, we shall shortly be introducing a range of evening wear so that you will be fully equipped to dance the night away without compromising on style!
Fabrics and exclusivity
We always bear in mind customers' concerns about turning up in the same thing as someone else. Just to reassure you, our designer mother of the bride outfits are made in small quantities and our fabrics too are very exclusive with often only a few metres woven in any one design. The Lalage Beaumont collection is solely available from the Beauchamp Place boutique making it easy for us to keep track of who has bought what, so that we can put your mind at rest that your friends won't turn up in the same thing on your big day!
