I say go for it. The pink “goes” with the black and white/cream and if you’re comfortable with it…go for it. Especially if your daughter doesn’t mind…she is the bride 🙂

I was begging my mom to buy a 1 shoulder bright pink dress!! I say go for it. Both my mom and my Future Mother-In-Law will be wearing strapless dresses. They are both having boleros made – but neither are the type to wear the bolero for the reception, really just the ceremony.

well pink’s my favorite color so i’d be very happy about it! but either way, i just wanted my mom to be comfortable with what she was wearing, so i’d say if you like it, wear it! would your daughter tell you the truth if she didn’t like it?

If you love it, look great in it, and your daughter loves it too, go for it! I’m hoping to find something like that for my Mom.

By the way, if you have pictures, feel free to post them!

I think mom’s of the bride should just wear whatever they feel amazing in. My mom has a difficult body type to work with, and she found that most “bridal” stores just didn’t have what she needed. She ended up finding a ton of options as department stores, and especially, Nordstrom.com!

As long as the dress and the color look good on you, that’s all that matters. I told my mom to wear whatever, and she radiance is what made her beautiful that day.

I’m happy to let my Mum wear whatever she pleases (as long as it’s not white). I want her to wear whatever she feel’s most comfortable with.

I’ve always told my mom to wear whatever makes her feel good and look good.  She feels more comfy in pantsuits so that’s what she wore to my brother’s wedding. But she thinks she might wear a long dress for mine.  So whatever you think you feel good in is all that matters!

I was begging my mom not to wear a “frumpy” dress. And thats because she is not a frumpy type person. I say go for it, you will look beautiful next to your daughter.. the both of you glowing. You should be happy with how you look! Your daughter seems to think your dress choice is just fine, don’t listen to your friends. I think everything will go just fine!

 

EDIT: That DRESS IS AWESOME. YOU MUST PICK THIS DRESS!!

If you’re comfortable in it, wear it!  Your friends are just jealous (they proabably don’t have the figure to wear it).
