Of­fer­ing styling tips to the mother of any bride is tricky. Much like telling her about any­thing else. Still, friendly ad­vice never goes amiss, so bear in mind the fol­low­ing. A)What­ever you choose to wear should look as good from the back as it does from the front, as you will be seen from the rear a lot, notably un­der the chu­pah. B) Li­aise with the mother of the groom, as a clash of pe­tu­nia and tan­ger­ine or the wear­ing of iden­ti­cal colours can cause chaos for the pho­tog­ra­pher and over­shadow the bride. C) It is the bride’s big day and a mother’s job is not to cre­ate fash­ion fric­tion, but a state­ment gown by Basil Soda of Paris will get you talked about in a good way. D)Seek ex­pert help from a de­signer such as Katya Wild­man (0208 446 8493) who dresses Nigella Law­son and can come up with some­thing that shows off your best bits. E) Al­ter­na­tively, go for the full French cou­turier ex­pe­ri­ence at Rachel El­baz in Knights­bridge (020 7235 3979), who has been made hun­dreds of out­fits for flus­tered mothers of brides and grooms who just want ev­ery­thing to be per­fect. And it will be.
