The Perfect Dress For Mom

My daughter, Cinderella is getting married next January. I have been searching the Internet for a dress. I want something simple, yet elegant. I want to blend with the wedding party, but I do not want to match them. The wedding colors are watermelon and teal. I read somewhere that the Mother-of-the-Bride should look regal. I do not know about that. I just want to look nice and appropriate. Hippie Guy’s wedding was very simple, preformed at Flower Child’s mother’s home, and I wore a simple, black dress. Cinderella’s wedding will be at her church with a reception to follow. It will be an afternoon wedding. Corvette suggested I wear the dress I wore as Matron of Honor in my best friend’s wedding. Ah, no.

So far, I found a few dresses I like. The first one is very simple but only comes indress1 marine, a dark blue.

The second one comes in either a lighter blue color or a pale purple. I love the front of the dress but I am not sure of the dressback. There is not an option to view the back on the website.




The last one is as close to regal as I can find. The only drawback is this dress is knee length. I am not sure if I should wear knee length or floor length. I really like thisdress2 dress. The color is called teal.




Since I need shoes I decided to visit There is a wide selection of shoes for men, women, boys and girls. There is even a special section for bridal shoes. I like the ‘Narrow your Choices’ feature. You can search by styles, size, color, brand and even widths. I found a couple pairs of shoes that I like.shoe1 I just can’t wear really high heels anymore so these low-heeled sandals would do nicely. Especially since I intend to spend a good amount of time dancing at the reception!shoe2

  1. truly…I understand! When both of my daughters married, I gave them away and wore a navy gown (different dresses for each wedding). Keep in mind, these photos are not going away, so make certain it is a dress you wish to see yourself wearing decades from now! The last thing you want to do is look at these photos and wonder “what was I thinking?” A wedding photo of my daughter, her husband and both sets of in-laws sits in her family room six years later and I still love that dress!
