Hey bees! I just wanted to get your take on the dress my mom picked.. obviously I want her to be comfortable and i really love the dress (and will prob take it after she wears it to the wedding for myself lol). She picked the second dress but we are thinking she should add straps like the first dress (minus the sparkly and in black). It is hard to tell in the pic but there are rosettes all over the full skirt. I know I am being silly.. and it might be because I wanted to buy this dress before she tried it on…BUT do you think she will outshine-ish me? I know I am the bride…but this dress is stunning! DO you think the dress is too fancy? It is significantly more fancy than other MOB dresses I have seen…but we ARE having a black tie event. Anywho..I know she looks stunning but tell me what you think!

Good! I really love the first one, tho. I wanted my sister to get that one in a one shoulder for my nephew’s wedding, bus she has no bust and it didn’t flatter her very much. Love the beaded straps!
I think she looks nice in both, and she defintely won’t outshine you!

I like the idea of adding straps. And I think either dress is appropriate for a black tie event. But seriously, no one ever outshines the bride on her wedding day. You’re the one in the big white dress, remember? There isn’t much that your Mom could wear that would outshine you on your wedding day. People will be gushing over you, and rightly so! =)

@ItWasntMe: I like the first one too! but she doesn’t feel comfortable in the clingy type dresses AND I get to borrow/steal it after lol (I kinda have a gown fetish)
@MapleMoose: you know, I know this… but for some reason I am being silly.

She should go for the straps. You both have excellent taste. 🙂

by the very fact that it is a black dress, there is no way she would outshine you. i am sure there will be several black dresses at your wedding and your mom might only outshine the other guests wearing black dresses, which would not be a bad thing i would think since she is the MOB.
oh and by the very fact that you are the bride and she is not, there is no way she would outshine you – people are there for you and your FIs wedding!

@atalante: 🙂 thank you. I think yes on the straps too! She is not too used to strapless.
@dynamic_duo: You know.. I know all of this in my brain.. but it is just manfunctioning today for some reason. I want her to be the second best dressed woman in the room 😉 and she def will be 🙂 OH-and my BMs are all in black also!

Both of those dresses are beautiful and are great MOB dresses for a black tie event!
