I may have posted this in the wrong section, so I apologize in advance.
I’m doing a friend a favor this evening and helping her scour the ‘net for some dress options for her mom. Her mom is the Maid/Matron of Honor in her sister’s wedding this October and she is looking for a tea length dress with sleeves in either purple or turquoise.
I thought to myself, no prob, shouldn’t be too hard…until my friend emailed a photo of the bride’s dress to me. Mind you, I’m not in any way implying anything negative about the bride’s dress, please don’t think that — but I’m honestly struggling to find something that will match nicely with it. My friend is having a difficult time to, hence the reason for summoning my help!
Where do I look? I’ve checked David’s and Alfred Angelo because I know they have vast color options. I suggested they explore the idea of a tea length dress with a bolero.
Does anyone have any designers they’d like to shoot my way? To make matters more difficult, she’s trying to keep the dress at $100. I already warned her that she may have to increase her budget a smidge. That, or department stores may be her best bet.
Ideas? Anyone? Thanks, Bees!
Here’s the bride’s dress:
