What is proper wedding attire etiquette for family of the bride and groom?

You Do Not Have to Be Emily Post

Here are some basic wedding wardrobe etiquette tips for the Bride's side:

The Mother of the Bride The wedding attire etiquette for the mother of the bride is one of the most clearly defined because she is the second most important female at the wedding. The mother of the bride isn't required to match the female wedding attendants. In fact, the mother of the bride should stand out from the bridesmaids and have her own look and style, which accompanies the bride's color choices and decor.

The Mother of the Groom Wedding attire etiquette requires that the mother of the bride and the mother of the groom be in contact with each other over their choices of clothing. They should coordinate their colors so they do not clash and it is of vital importance that no competition is played out during the selection of clothing between the mother of the bride and the mother of the groom.
