I’m looking for some pictures of REAL mothers dressed up for your wedding! I’m having a bit of trouble helping my mom find an outfit. Part of th problem is that a lot of the models in “mother of the bride” dresses are either a) 20 years old or b) tall and slim.
My mom is a very well dressed lady, but she’s about 5’1 and maybe about a size 14…so she’s not a super large woman, but her body shape is very different than the models I keep seeing. She’s also a pretty casual person- she wears a lot of jeans, blouses, cardigans, flats. The fanciest I’ve ever seen her dressed was during my university graduations, and she wore just a basic black knee length skirt with a nice blouse to each one. Even at her wedding, she wore a knee length, short sleeved ivory dress- so she’s never been the type to wear a gown! She does however LOVE jewelry, the bigger the better (mostly necklaces and bracelets).
My summer wedding will be a fairly casual affair- my dress will be flowy and lacy without a touch of bling or poofiness. The both of us are having trouble picturing her in anything that we’ve seen so far. I know she wants something with sleeves and floor length but other than that Im stuck.
I’d love to see some real life inspiration of REAL moms at your wedding!
