The mother of the bride or groom has a special role to play and it requires a special gown that is sophisticated and special. It’s the perfect opportunity to wear a gown that embodies the spirit and personality of the mom and certainly does not have to fit a specific mould. In true mum style, these gowns from Donna Leah Designs marry the best of fashion and what’s trending in a totally unique way.
From traditional “something blue” to being bold and beautiful, Donna Leah, founder and designer of Donna Leah Designs, has inspiration and opinions on being picture-perfect for that special day. “There are so many things to take into consideration when shopping for the perfect dress. You want to fit the wedding aesthetic and not look like a bridesmaid! In between there’s a huge range of beautiful styles, colours, and fabrics to choose from. Ultimately, it’s all about wearing what makes you feel confident. That’s really the best way to ensure that the experience will be everything you dreamed and hoped for,” says Donna Leah.
Following are some of the designer’s latest looks for this season’s Mother of the Bride and beyond.
In case you didn’t know. The phrase “something blue” symbolises fidelity and purity. No matter the reason, blue is the perfect colour to elevate an ensemble, no matter the location. For a wedding, Donna Leah opts for a softer tone, like her Sky Blue gown which was inspired by the romance of Paris.
Garden party wedding? Florals are always in season and feel extra festive. Selecting a floral pattern is for those daring to be a bit different and embrace a unique style. It’s a mistake to think that a floral motif gown has to be colourful. Donna Leah’s Rose Garden Gown is all about understated sophistication.
Nothing lets Mum shine in her own glimmering light more than a gown in gold. It’s the ultimate way to shine without stealing the spotlight. Think about fabrics that play with the light and a specific shade of gold. This is the dress, the Ruffle Me Wild, is the ultimate way to dance the night away!
The Color of Class
If personality is something that a mom likes to wear, then going with a bold colour is what it’s all about.
It doesn’t matter the exact shade. From pinks and purples to greens and blues, a strong hue is where it’s at. Featured here is the stunning Mazie in purple with a hint of black.
Pink to Perfection
All pink is the way to ensure the perfect pop of colour. It feels bridal without being white and coming into the spring and summer seasons, it’s the perfect colour for right now. Pink Paradise is from the designer’s latest collection. In addition to the colour, the focus is on the intricate design work of the fabric.
