The short answer to this is that a mother of the bride’s dress may, equally appropriately, be short or long. Factors such as the time of day of the wedding, its location, whether the same dress will be worn for the wedding and the reception and the type of ceremony being planned will all influence the best height for the hemline.
Bernadette can design and create a dress in any set of dimensions, tailoring the hem length to suit your exact requirements.
