Formal dresses are a classic wedding outfit option, but if you want to dress chic while feeling comfortable, then a sharp mother-of-the-bride pantsuit is the way to go. Another bonus to choosing a classic blazer and pants combination? Pantsuits come in so many styles that finding an ensemble that works well with your daughter's wedding theme will be a breeze.

While there are no hard and fast rules where choosing a mother of the bride pantsuit is concerned, your outfit should work with the wedding venue and dress code. For example, a structured pantsuit is the perfect option for a modern wedding in an urban setting (or a city hall ceremony), while glittery separates like an embellished chiffon jacket and flowy pants work for more formal evening affairs.

Here, we rounded up 20 stunning mother-of-the-bride pantsuits for every budget and style.
