Mom attire

I had an easy time finding my dress. Well honestly I didn't exactly know what I wanted so when I did the Running of the Brides It was easy to find something that I could love and looked great on me. For my Bridesmaids it was slightly more challenging. I wanted to find a dress that would look good on all three of them. Now to the most difficult challenge our mothers. The dresses in the stores were either way to old for them (they are in their 50's) or way to young. They too also had some idea on what they wanted, a short dress with a jacket. So after searching all over the internet and asking my girls on the knot. I found some that fit the bill at Nordstrom's. I think they are perfect for a hot August wedding in Georgia. I also think they will look fabulous. They are also under $200.00 so that also makes me feel better. Which makes me wonder, I'm not the only girl getting married so there are plenty of Mom's hunting for dresses why is it so hard to find one that is for a woman in her fifty's that doesn't make her look like a bag of beads.

my mom has had the hardest time too here in Atlanta! She finally has said 'yes to her dress' but the process of finding a mother of the bride dress that looked decent was tough. To say the very least!!!

My sis is also getting married on Aug 1 but she didn't get engaged until the last week in April so it is a mad house here. I love these dresses for the moms. I know several girls getting married & I have heard the same thing about the moms having an extreemly difficult time finding an appropriate dress that they feel comfortable in & can afford. We are lucky in that a lady who goes to my mom's church is making all 5 bridesmaids dresses, my sister's wedding dress, & my mom's dress for an unbelievable price. (She's just getting into the business & is going to use us as advertisement.)
