Picking a venue is one of the first decisions a couple makes when planning their special day. Somewhere that reflects them and their personality, and has plenty of room for their family and friends are the main criteria when searching for the perfect location to tie the knot.
The country is an extremely popular destination for weddings, and it’s not hard to understand why. Peaceful surroundings, rustic charm, and breathtaking views create a delightful atmosphere that everyone can enjoy. Whether it be in regional Australia or the Gold Coast / Sunshine Coast Hinterland, the romance of a country wedding is truly unique; and often you get to make a full weekend’s worth of memories if you’re staying a night or two near the wedding venue.
Country ceremonies can be held on a large or intimate scale, in a multitude of settings. Examples include a field, marquee, barn, and country manor house. All of these create a magnificent backdrop for joyous celebrations and photos that you can cherish forever.
As the Mother of the Bride / Groom, picking an outfit for the countryside that is comfortable from ceremony to reception is important—that way, as the second most important woman of the day, you look and feel your very best!
Lucky for you, Living Silk has a range of options perfect for this natural setting.
Classic Wrap Shirt + Pansy Skirt
This combination is simple and sophisticated, making it perfect for a Mother of the Bride / Groom attending a country wedding. The Pansy Skirt, which sits just above the ankles, is an ideal length—not too long that it will drag on the ground and not too short that it will blow up in a breeze. The Classic Wrap Shirt compliments the Pansy Skirt beautifully, and will protect you from the sun by covering your shoulders and arms; it’s available in both opaque and sheer varieties. Slip on some wedges (ideal for a country wedding) to complete this stunning look.
This entire outfit is 100% pure silk. Pure silk keeps you cool in summer and retains warmth in winter, so you can wear this outfit comfortably in any season.
The wonderful thing about these two pieces is that they come in so many colours, which you can mix and match to suit your personal style. Discover the range of Classic Wrap Shirts here and Pansy Skirts here.
Another elegant option for a Mother of the Bride / Groom attending a country wedding is our Wrap Dress (it too is 100% pure silk).
Featuring a classic a-line cut, slightly cut away shoulders, and nehru neckline, this dress will give you an effortless look and flattering fit. With zero zips, buttons, hooks and eyes (thanks to its wrap design) it’s so comfortable to wear you might not want to take it off!
Pair it with one of our pure silk organza jackets if you want a little something over your shoulders.
Ribbon Dress + Organza Coat
If you’re looking for a garment with an intricate pattern, our Ribbon Dress is a lovely option. With a boat neckline, silk satin ribboning, and 47% micro modal for the perfect fit, it’s the most flattering dress in our collection. Available colours are Midnight Blue + Silver, Black + Gold, Ivory, and Turquoise.
When paired with the Organza Coat, you have yourself a luxurious ensemble that photographs like a dream. The Ribbon Dress still shines through while giving you that little extra coverage.
