Choosing The Perfect Dress

For The Mother of the Bride, 2023

In the ever-changing world of fashion, staying on top of the latest trends is crucial. With her keen eye for style and a profound understanding of fashion, Sherri Mosley, the owner of Carl Meyer's, has identified the top trends for mothers of the bride for the upcoming 2023 wedding season. Here are Sherri's top five Mother of the Bride trends to keep an eye out for this year.

The Cape Trend

In 2023, capes are making a fashion statement. Whether replacing traditional sleeves or adding an element of royal flair to your ensemble, capes are a must-have. They are versatile, fashionable, and a perfect way to add a unique touch to your wedding attire.


Understated elegance is a timeless trend that never goes out of style. Sherri recommends incorporating this refined aesthetic into your dress, whether it's a minimalist design, a streamlined silhouette, or subtle, sophisticated detailing. Perfect for any season, a dress imbued with understated elegance is versatile and always on-trend.


Sherri believes that investing in high-quality fabrics can significantly elevate your overall look. Whether it's rich silks, luxe velvets, or sumptuous satins, opting for a dress made from premium materials can make you stand out. This year, it's about appreciating the subtle nuances of top-tier fabrics and letting their inherent beauty shine!

Sherri and Carl Meyer's team are excited to assist you in selecting a dress that not only aligns with these trends but also reflects your individual style and personality. Remember, it's not just about following trends, but about finding the perfect dress that makes you feel special and confident on your daughter's big day.

It's Never Too Early!

The Final piece of advice I would give is around the timeline.  It can be summed up very simply:  The earlier the better.  If you know venues, florists, caterers, rental companies that you want to use, go ahead and get on their calendars as soon as you have a general idea of the date.  This doesn’t mean that you have to know all of the details already, but you do need to make sure you are on their schedules.  Our daughter was engaged for 14 months.  She immediately knew the month she wanted (the day she got the ring in fact) and even though at that time we had no clue where the wedding would be, I already knew who we should use for flowers and food and secured the timeline with those vendors.
