Mothers Of The Bride And Groom
Traditionally, the mother of the bride usually chooses her gown first and then calls the groom's mother to inform her of her choice, describing the dress in detail. For example, if the mother of the bride has chosen a black or orange dress, the mother of the groom should select one coordinate with it. However, each mother is entitled to dress in the style she finds most comfortable. Unless they ask for your help, there’s really no reason for the bride to get involved. If you do want to make sure the dress she picks up is decent, you can search some online dress shops, and show dresses you feel good to them. Dresses designed in the style like the one at

If there are any stepmothers involved in the wedding, it's thoughtful to give them a call to inform them what the other mothers are wearing.
Fathers Of The Bride And Groom
Since the bride's father usually walks her down the aisle, it is important that he dress similarly to the groomsmen—in most cases that means a matching tuxedo. The father of the groom may also dress in formal attire if he so chooses.
If there is a stepfather involved in the wedding ceremony, he should be dressed in similar attire to the groom's attendants. If he will be present but not involved in the ceremony, he may dress similarly to the guests.
There is nothing more charming than children dressed up in their very best. The children's clothing should be in a style and color that coordinates with the bridesmaids' gowns and groomsmen’s attire; just avoid dresses that are too sophisticated for a little flower girl. A flower girl will look beautiful in a full skirt and pouf sleeves, perhaps with ribbons or bows in her hair. A ring bearer will be adorable in a miniature version of the groomsmen’s attire.
Tip: Make sure your flower girl can walk comfortably in her dress, especially if she's on the younger side. A full tulle skirt is easy to trip on, and you don't want her to get hurt.
