What do you think of this dress?

Recommended Posts

Hmmm... I don't think I would like it for the mother of the bride at the actually ceremony.

Maybe for the welcome dinner or another night out.

Okay I don't know... I wouldn't get her a dress without her trying it on first. She has a super important role as mother of the bride and you want her to look almost as good as you (the bride) hehehe. What about something a lil bit simpler?

See what happens when you are so passive on some things like me...

 

Thanks for your opinions....I will have to bring it up to my sister. I am visiting her this week. My sister is hard headed and I think sometimes she takes offense to things...maybe not...but maybe I will tell my mom that I don't like it and then she can go try it on and tell my sister she just doesn't feel comfortable in it?

 

I know that isn't the best way to go about it... sad.gif

Your colors are brown and pink right? Is that dress black and white? Not that the MOB's dress has to match but it might not look right in the pictures. In my opinion it would be too busy.

No, it's brown and white....that's why my sister thought it would be good because it went with the colors..

Yes they are brown and pink...

I think the print is fine. It's a cute dress (I just don't personally like those necklines, but that's b/c I don't think they look good on me!). I'd wait to see until after she tries it on. Just be honest with your opinion with her b/c if it doesn't float your boat .. you DO have a right to let her know.

This is your wedding...not your sister's. If you think it is too much, help your mom find something that you like and would be comfortable for her. I don't think this was your sister's call to make.

Cute dress & I like the colors. Honest opinoin - I dont think it looks like a "mother of the bride" the day of the wedding type of dress. Can she wear it another night when everyone gets together for dinner or drinks?

I don't think it's a good mother of the bride dress either. An easy way to suggest it's not the right dress to your sister, is to say you are worried the print won't photograph or film well. I don't think it would. Stripes can look funny on film, so I'd worry about wavy stripes a lot.

 

I think it's a cute dress, but it's also not something I'd pick for a big event. She'll be photographed a lot. It should be special. I also think it looks like a young style. If you mom is young or looks young it could work.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
