wedding wednesday - mother of the bride dresses.

a few weeks ago i went shopping with my mom, grandma, aunt and flower girl. we had a v successful shopping trip and everyone found dresses! my mom was nervous about finding the right dress and she wasn't happy with a lot of the options she found online (too many sparkles, ruffles, and jackets). 

luckily she found a simple and chic dress, with a double-v in a gorgeous summery green!here are a few other options for a mother of the bride. these dresses ditch the embellishments and stick to simple silhouettes (perfect for a summer wedding)::

  4. Love these! My mom had a really hard time finding a dress too that didn't age her- why do they make mother of the bride dresses so frumpy w/ridiculous ruffles and sparkles?

  6. That bottom purple dress is beautiful! I love it. I might have to think about doing it for rehearsal dinner dress (even though you're suggesting mother of the bride...). What are you wearing for rehearsal? White?

  7. I remember how tough it was to find the perfect MOB dress...my mom and MIL actually bought the SAME dress! They need to expand the selection out there!

  11. I love all of these! My mom hated most of the mother of the bride dresses that were out there when I got married, so she chose something different. It was just a simple gold dress, and definitely no jacket! I don't know why they think moms like jackets so much...

    Like everything else, I'm excited to see what your mom chose when the big day finally comes!

    xoxo,
    Joelle
