Yup that covers it. So shopping for/with/about the Mother of the Bride, heretofore known as MoB, is quite the challenge. In fact it was only YESTERDAY (38 days until the wedding) that she started looking for an outfit. It takes a lot of build up to get her to go trying things on, which she know she will dislike. Here are two contenders that she bought, just in case she likes either....
Now she loves red, but this is a bit too big on her. I don't believe the shape of this dress will take to altering easily or well... which is sad because she LOVES red.
Contender number two, which really doesn't look like much of a hit.... let's see it with the matching jacket.
Somehow adding that jacket really makes the dress look amazing, I don't know how and I certainly don't know why. I'm not a fashionista but clearly my MoB is. So right now I'm leaning towards #2 and I think MoB is leaning towards another shopping trip. Cross your fingers that she will find something!
Did your MoB or MoG have difficulty finding their dress? What are your tips for my Mother of the Bride?
