M.O.B. Rules

December 28, 2010

While my mom is here visiting we are going with Rachel to try on wedding dresses. (breeeaaaaathe!) It makes sense that while we are they we should also look at some dresses for my mom.

Have you ever seen traditional “Mother of the Bride” dresses??

One word:  ghastly.

My mom is petite and adorable and unconventional and outdoorsy. There is no way I can see her in get-ups such as these…

Dowdy, shapeless, overwrought, swamping the poor tiny woman in massive yards of fabric!

Or this… WHOSE MOTHER LOOKS LIKE THIS? And is she paying for the reception with happy endings?

After some discussion we have decided: short, fitted, dark, silk, with cap sleeves. Something tells me we aren’t going to find it in a bridal boutique.

Any success stories in finding dresses that made your moms look beautiful and awesome and age-appropriate (NOT OLD) please let me know!
