- Wedding: October 2014
So I went MOB dress shopping with my Mom this past weekend and found her the perfect MOB dress! She is very uncomfotable with her body/weight and so this was a daunting task for her. We were so excited to find a dress that was so flattering and that she felt good in. Then we found out that it doesn’t come in any decent colors! She tried it on in black (which was stunning!) but she is rather old fashioned and would NEVER wear black to my wedding. It also came in stone (a very light almost white/beige color), royal blue (way too bright) and sea mist (a weird shade of light green).
So I need your help- anyone know of a dress very similar to this that may work for her? I know all the designers are always copying each other so I figure there has to be a copy of this somewhere! This one is Cameron Blake by Mon Cheri. I looked through all of their other dresses and couldn’t find anything quite right. She likes the chiffon (doesn’t want satin or any shiney material). The top doesn’t have to be beaded but she really likes the mock two piece look and I think that sash around the middle really brings her waist in. She likes some sort of arm coverage so definitely no strapless. And most of all it needs to come in a decent color! Maybe a darker blue (not quite navy as that is what my girls are wearing), dark purple/plum, burgundy, etc.
We contacted the company and they don’t do custom colors.
I really want my mom to feel comfortable and beautiful on my wedding day so I hope we can find something she loves! This was such a bummer for her.
Okay- sorry for how long this got… Here is the dress!
