Mother of the Bride dress and questions
My DD is getting married this May!! Her colors are pale yellow and white. The 5 bridesmaids are wearing long pale yellow gowns of the same fabric but they chose style of top that best fits them. Some of you may remember her struggle with an eating disorder in college. She has done so much work and has been well for several years now, and I believe that she will continue to grow in a healthy way.
DD and I went to Nordstroms to shop for MOB dresses a few weeks ago. I bought this in the navy and I really like it. My arms aren't the best but, overall this dress looks very nice and is very graceful and easy to wear.
My DD is very relaxed about most details and says I can wear long or short in any color! We are having the best time planning!
The Mother of the groom told my DD she is wearing black, as that is all she ever wears and that EVERYONE will be wearing black. This after my DD told her that I wasn't wearing black because I didn't want folks to think I was in mourning. I love black for its slimming properties.
MOG is a pip. I may need guidance on that - she travels in a pack of sisters so I am way way outnumbered!
Anyway, I guess I just want outside affirmation that this dress is appropriate for the MOB, even though I feel inside its right for me. And my DD loves it.
The wedding is in a church and the reception is in a country club as my DD says she prefers understated elegance.
When my DD was in second grade I was diagnosed with breast cancer and that rocked her little world. So it is very meaningful to all of us that I am here for this.
Edited to say Thank you for the matronly thread! that got me looking outside the box!!
