Finding the perfect outfit for a summer wedding can be a challenge, especially if you’re the mother of the bride. You might be hoping to find a look that’s elegant and special, that will also keep you feeling cool and breezy throughout the entire celebration. Once you know what your daughter has chosen as the dress code for the wedding, it’s time to start looking for an outfit you’ll look great in for her big day. Keeping in mind the hot temperatures that often come with the summertime, here are eight mother of the bride looks that are perfect for this season.


Sleeveless Sheath Dress

This sophisticated sheath dress is perfect for an indoor and outdoor wedding in the summertime. The lightweight fabric and slate color fits in well with the season. Plus, the outfit comes with a coordinating soutache jacket and removable necklace that you can wear on and off throughout the evening.

Lace Pant Set

After trying on dresses, you might decide that you want to try something else for your mother of the bride outfit. A three-piece lace pant set could be your perfect pick for a summer wedding. This mauve one comes with a square neck sleeveless tank top, a removable jacket with scallop ending, and partially lined pants. The fabric is cool and comfortable, while still looking stylish and fancy for most wedding dress codes.

Embellished Gown

For a black-tie wedding, finding a longer dress can be tricky. But this 3D floral embellished gown isn’t fabric heavy. It’s knit lined, has elbow-length sleeves, and beadwork all over the dress. It’s a great look for a more traditional wedding and the right kind of outfit, whether you’re spending time in the sun or on the dance floor.

Floral Embroidered Sequin Dress

Perfect for a formal wedding where a long gown isn’t necessary is this elegant, knee-length cocktail dress. The floral embroidery adds an elevated and stand-out detail to this stunning dress. With elbow-length cuff-sleeves, your arms can be covered with the lightweight sheer fabric.

Floral Lace Midi Cocktail Dress

For a summer cocktail dress code, this floral lace midi dress could be the perfect option for the mother of the bride. It comes in a soft blush color, has short sleeves, is partially lined so your legs, neck, and arms can catch a breeze, and has a V-back. Add on your favorite pair of earrings and a low heel to bring this look together for a summer wedding.

Chiffon Jumpsuit

A chic and comfortable summer wedding outfit for a mother of the bride to try is this chiffon jumpsuit. It comes with a jewel neckline, cutaway shoulders, and a removable tie belt. The best part about this outfit is the fun, orange pattern it comes in. It’s great for a backyard celebration or a summer-themed wedding.

Chiffon Mother of the Bride Dress

If you’re eager to find a look that provides more coverage, but is still lightweight and elegant, this chiffon three-piece outfit could be perfect for your daughter’s wedding. It comes with a round neck sleeveless top, elastic waistband pants, and a long sheath jacket. The mauve tone is complementary to summer wedding color palettes and blends in nicely with bright or pastel flower decor.

Flutter Sleeve Dress

A comfortable and elegant mother of the bride look that’s perfect for a formal or cocktail attire wedding is this flutter-sleeve chiffon dress. It was designed with comfort in mind and features mid-length flowy sleeves, a knee-length hemline, and uses high-quality chiffon for a graceful look.
