Summer Wedding Mother of the Bride Shoes and Bag Sets

1. Satin Knot Court Shoe & Box Clutch - £99 & £69, Phase Eight

Pink satin bow detail clutch bag and matching court heels

Not only are Phase Eight brilliant when it comes to shopping for wedding guest dresses, their matching mother of the bride shoes and bag sets are stunning as well. These satin court shoes and clutch bag are in a shade that will suit any outfit so you could even buy them before you've made the final decision.

They are also available in navy and pale blue should that be more to your taste. 

Pros & Cons: This is a classic style with a twist (literally!) so it'll keep your accessories traditional, without being boring. As they are made from satin you might want to be careful when walking during wet weather - spraying them with some fabric protector is advised.

3. Julia Sling Back & Clifton Clutch - £129 & £99, Hobbs

Hot pink suede clutch and heels

We love how this model has picked out the pink florals in her skirt and paired them with these fuchsia shoes and bag. It's a great tip for choosing which colour accessories to go for and it'll ensure a seamless look.

"Hot pink provides a pop of colour but it won't feel too much - and it looks perfect paired with so many colours, but especially navy," says Zoe Burke, Editor of Hitched. "I recommend these heels for a wedding as the heel height is low enough to keep you comfortable all day, and the clutch is a nice size to fit all your belongings in without feeling bulky- including your wedding lipstick

Pros & Cons: As they are made from suede, water protectant spray is recommended.

4. Satin Knot Front Heels & Pleat Clutch - £99 & £65, Phase Eight

Lilac satin matching clutch bag and heels

We adore the gorgeous sheen on this satin set and think the lilac colourway is perfect for a spring wedding guest dress. The pleating on the clutch adds interest to the classic design and the strappy front on the shoes is stunning. The bag features a long silver chain strap which means you can put it over your shoulder and go hands-free when wanted. 

Pros & Cons: As these sandals are open-toed you might want to get a pedicure - you'll find some lovely inspiration in our wedding nails round-up.

5. Clarisse Court Shoes & Belvedere Clutch Bag - £90 & £75, Dune

Brightly coloured, abstract pattern heels and clutch bag

Bring a burst of colour to your outfit with this court shoe and clutch combo from Dune. They have summer wedding accessories written all over them and they're so fun. The ankle strap will help keep you comfortable all day as they do have a slightly higher heel, and the elegant bag chain allows you to wear it in multiple ways. 

Pros & Cons: These shoes and bag will work best with a non-patterned outfit as they may clash with anything printed. If you've fallen in love with this set, you could pick a colour from the fabric and match your dress to it.

Navy Mother of the Bride Shoes and Bag Sets

6. Structured Kitten Heel & Bow Clutch - £99 & £69, Phase Eight

Suede navy clutch bag and court shoes set

At the other end of the scale are these understated navy blue shoes and clutch bag from Phase Eight. They'll look lovely at a winter wedding with gold jewellery, but if your collection is mainly silver, that will work too. The pretty bows are really wedding-appropriate and if the bride is wearing a wedding dress with bows, they'll match. 

Pros & Cons: The low heel height will still elongate your legs, but you won't have to worry about them hurting.

7. Elliya Court & Sarah Clutch - £159 & £99, Hobbs

Navy blue suede matching clutch bag and heels

Cobalt blue is a in-trend shade for this year so if you want to gain some style points, this shoe and bag set could be for you. It's a great colour for all seasons and as the sandals are closed-toe, you can wear them in winter too. 

"Ankle straps make heels a lot easier to walk in," explains Rima Barakeh, Deputy Editor of Hitched. "But that's not the only reason I love these shoes for a wedding - they're sophisticated and the vibrant blue means they feel far from stuffy." 

Pros & Cons: The lining of the shoes is made from 100% leather so it'll stay in great condition - you might want to wear them in a few days before the big day so the leather isn't stiff and won't rub.

You might want to steer clear of wearing white accessories on the wedding day, so silver is a lovely alternative. The square toe on these strappy sandals is a stylish feature and the plain clutch bag design lets the metallic foiling do all the talking. 

Pros & Cons: If you're wearing a maxi dress, this shoe will look beautiful peeking out from the bottom and won't be too much if you're only looking for a hint of glitz.

Does Mother of the Bride Need a Bag?

There are no rules to say the mother of the bride needs a bag, but it will sure come in useful on the wedding day - and make the perfect finishing touch to your look. Choose a bag that is big enough to fit all the essentials you'll need, such as tissues for tears, makeup for touch-ups and your phone and keys, but not too big that it will get in your way or feel bulky.

A clutch bag that has the option to have a shoulder strap added is a great choice and means you can switch up your look from the ceremony to the reception. 

Should my Shoes and Bag Match for a Wedding?

Typically, it is best to match your shoes with your bag if you want to create a co-ordinated look. That could mean the same colourway, print, or fabric but they don't have to completely match. The styles above are all specifically designed to be paired together making choosing your accessories quick and easy.
