Starting to shop for my mom’s dress for the wedding. We are not even sure where to start. The wedding is in the fall (October) and our main color is blue – though, my ladies will all be wearing a different shade of blue. We are also going with shorter (above the knee dresses) to show off our boots. The wedding is more formal than rustic – It is Black Tie Optional.
MOB is very petite at 5’0 and super thin. She will not be wearing boots. 🙂 MOG is super tall and slender. She will most likely be wearing dress flats.
Any ideas/suggestions would be so greatly appreciated.

So I don’t have a good picture of my Mom from the big day, but that’s her on the left, obviously posing for someone, during the recessional. She got TONS of compliments on the dress (and shoes, of course). That’s my Mother-In-Law on the right and her dress was very much “her” as well. They’re both petite, around 5’2″.

This dress was a last minute find at DB after she decided that the dress she originally bought wasn’t going to cut it…

Here’s my beautiful mom in her dress:
I don’t know where she got it but I thought she looked beautiful.

My wedding was a bit less formal than yours, but this is what my mom wore. Sorry, she’s hiding behind me a bit.

My mom got her dress from a bridal salon…she looked at DB and a bunch of department stores but couldn’t find anything she liked in a petite size. The one she picked was by Cameron Blake, his line had a lot of very pretty and appropriate dresses. She wanted her shoulders covered but doesn’t like bolero jackets, which made it a little tricky! Plus she is just picky…she tried on more dress than I did! I literally got a blister on my finger from zipping her into so many dresses.

Here’s my Momma the day she bought it. She paired it with awesome sparkly shoes and a matching purse.

Thinking about this one for my mom! (ignore the black bra and bra straps and the fact that the dress is about 100 sizes too big please 😀 )

At the end of the night…
This is the other wedding, and I wore chocolate brown.
