Be an amazing Mother of the Bride too, with help from John Lewis

With the Royal Wedding just a week away, we are really looking forward to sitting in front of the TV on the Big Day, watching the celebrations as Harry marries Meghan.

We are so excited to see Meghan’s wedding dress.  And we’re sure Kate, Duchess of Cambridge will look stunning, because she always does!

But the outfits we are most excited to see are those of the Mother of the Bride and the Mother of the Groom (in this case, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, step-mother of the groom).  Because they will be looking elegant and chic, without taking the focus away from the Bride.

What will you wear to your ‘Royal’ wedding?

If you are going to be a Mother of the Bride or Groom, we’re sure ‘your’ wedding will be just as ‘royal’ and just as special!

So when you are searching for that elegant Mother of the Bride (and Mother of the Groom) outfit, you’ll see that John Lewis offers a huge range of dresses, suits and separates to ensure you look stunning at your celebration.

And, of course, they offer all the amazing wedding accessories you need, too, from hats to handbags, footwear to fascinators…



Bruce Oldfield’s exquisite bridal and evening gowns make him one of the UK’s iconic fashion figures and a long-time Royal favourite.

Usually, such iconic design means super-high price-tags. But no longer because John Lewis’s exclusive Bruce by Bruce Oldfield collection makes Oldfield affordable. We don’t need to tell you that jacquard fabric and duster coats are right on trend. The two elements are combined in the super elegant shift dress and matching collarless duster coat. We especially love those bracelet-length sleeves which give the outfit a true couture feel!

Team with the stunning hat for a hit of on-trend (and skin-enhancing) pastel pink.

We do love this beautiful and elegant dress-and-jacket from the Gina Bacconi S/S18 collection at John Lewis.

Lavished with lace, in oh-so-pretty (and oh-so-flattering) flamingo pink and with those bracelet sleeves, this is an outfit that will look elegant for the big day celebrations, but could work hard in your wardrobe for other formal occasions. We would let the colour do all the talking and team the outfit with this beautiful hat in off-white.

As well as a dazzling selection of exquisite hats and fascinators, John Lewis offers a superb collection of beautiful wedding shoes and bags.

For a special occasion, we still think it has to be a Clutch as the perfect style of bag to stow tissues and your other wedding-day MoB essentials.
