Mother of the Bride Dress for July London wedding

Looking for a dress for my Mum (for my sisters wedding). She’s 61 and a size 10-12 and doesn’t want a traditional Mother of the Bride outfit. It’s a July London wedding so she’s looking for either light sleeves or sleeveless and can add a jacket.

Budget up to £300 and she’s keen for bright colours.

It’s probably a bit early to look but keen to get ideas and inspiration!

I would take a look at Beulah! The price point is a little higher but they do have a sale on right now. It might also be worth looking at Zimmerman pieces on sale.
I also really like Self Portrait, it has such chic silhouettes but I would wait til the new collection comes out.

My Mum wore a linen suit (from Hobbs) plus hat for my sister’s wedding in July last year. It looked great. She said she felt too grumpy / mutton in dresses!
