A spring wedding often comes with treats unlike any other season. It’s a time of year when the weather is cool and breezy. Everything from flowers to flavors have a renewed bloom and freshness to them, often inspiring reception cocktails and dinner menus. As the mother of the person getting married, finding the right outfit to wear on the big day can be a challenge. You may be eager to find something that you feel confident and comfortable in, plus something that blends in nicely with the season.

If you’re on the hunt for the perfect look, here are eight mother of the bride or groom outfits that are fitting for the 2024 spring season!


A Maxi-Dress With Flutter Sleeves

The spring season can bring both warm days and chilly air, so if you’re not sure what to wear, you can’t go wrong with a maxi dress. Select one in a soft print with flutter sleeves, to give it a more modern and seasonal look.

Floor-Length Gown With Embellished Details

Looking for a formal outfit that still fits the season? Try a floor-length gown with embellished details. A beaded sleeve or floral applique elevates the dress, making it perfect for a fancy affair during the spring season.

A Dimensional Evening Gown

If you want to wear a stand-out gown to your child’s wedding, go with one that has a dimensional look and textured layers. Gowns that combine sequin accents, floral rosette appliques, or lace will make you feel like you’re wearing something so unique it could pass as a work of art.

Sleeveless Belted Midi Dress

Your child’s big day is often surrounded by lots of pre and post wedding events. If you need a dressier casual look for the rehearsal dinner or after-wedding brunch, opt for a sleeveless belted-midi dress.

Cape Sleeve Crepe Sheath Dress

Eager to go with a look that covers your arms but still makes you look chic? Try a cape sleeve crepe sheath dress. The design of the dress stands out with a unique shoulder and fabric draping in the back of the dress. It’s the perfect look for a cocktail attire wedding event.

Ankle Length Beaded Mesh Gown

Preparing for an indoor spring wedding that calls for a formal look? If you don’t want a gown that hits the floor, pick one that’s ankle length and designed with beaded details that sit nicely on a mesh layer of fabric. Going with a periwinkle, light blue, or blush color makes the dress even more fitting for spring.

Chiffon Flutter Sleeve Cocktail Dress

Chiffon is both a light and airy fabric that’s perfect for the spring season, especially if you’re heading to a garden wedding or cocktail attire affair. If the wedding is taking place in a warmer location, go with a midi dress that has flutter sleeves.

Knee-Length Floral Embroidered Cocktail Dress

If you’re looking for a traditional gown that’s perfect for a warm-weathered spring wedding, go with a knee-length dress with mesh beaded sleeves. Search for one with floral embroidery so it will have a more classic twist that’s perfect for the season.
