What's even better than a dress with pockets? A dress with sleeves. In general, finding an elegant evening gown or cocktail dress that covers your arms is no easy feat. Most dresses, especially more elegant options, tend to be sleeveless or strapless, but if you're not comfortable with showing your arms (or you simply want something that offers a bit more warmth), then you may have to search a little harder to find exactly what you desire. Fortunately for the moms who are currently shopping, mother of the bride or groom dresses with sleeves have become more popular and accessible as of late.

For that classic mother of the bride or groom look, opt for a gown with a matching jacket or capelet attached. These are practical and warm pieces that are ideal for weddings in the fall or winter, not to mention they also add a level of comfort to your look. If you want an ensemble that feels less conservative, lean into features like slits or low necklines that allow any look to appear trendy, modern, and chic.

What to Look for in a Mother of the Bride or Groom Dress With Sleeves

Looking for the perfect mother of the bride or groom dress with sleeves all comes down to your personal style and preferences. If you want something on the conservative side that provides optimal coverage, look for long sleeves, capelets, or matching jackets. If you want to go for something more modern and trendy, look for details like slits, lower necklines, structural sleeves, or illusion material. Remember to look for a shade that goes well with the rest of the colors for the wedding and the wedding party, and to check with the couple if there are any outfit choices you should stay away from. And while you should pick something that stands out, remember to never outstage the bride.

FAQ

  • Should the mother of the bride or groom match the bridal party?

    The mother of the bride or groom should complement the rest of the wedding party, but her look should stand out a bit and not be the same color. She should opt for a different hue (for example, if the bridesmaids are wearing light blue, the mother of the bride could wear navy), or she can wear a pattern with matching elements to the bridesmaid dresses.

  • Should the mother of the bride or groom wear a long dress?

    Most of the time, you'll find that mother of the bride or groom dress options are floor-length formal gowns. However, there are no steadfast rules, depending on the dress code. If you want to wear something shorter, go ahead. Shorter dresses are especially popular for more casual weddings, but if the event is white-tie, black-tie, or formal, then a long dress should be worn.

  • How much are mother of the bride or groom dresses with sleeves?

    The price of any mother of the bride dress will vary widely. It depends on the designer, the materials used, and the length of the dress. If you choose something formal from a popular designer, the price could be thousands of dollars. Of course, it's not necessary to spend that much and there are plenty of options for looks that cost between $100-$500, with budget-friendly choices under $100 too.
