    What are your Mom's wearing for the ceremony?

    My Mom just picked two outfits (one dress and one pantsuit) and will decide which one looks better once they arrive. She picked a turquoise/aqua color, which is one of our wedding complement colors.

    So, I think I'll tell my FMIL to look for something coral in color (which is our other complement color).

    This is the pantsuit my Mom picked. She doesn't have a pic of the dress yet.

    Any thoughts?

      It looks very nice and the colour is lovely but she won't be too hot will she?

        Well, the jacket is a sheer fabric with a tank underneath. So, hopefully not. She likes the jacket options on outfits anyway. I looked at a close-up pic on the website and it's a really sheer jacket. Very summery.

          Very nice! Glad to see I'm not the only one who wants to tell mom and future mil what color to wear.
          I'd be interested in hearing other's experience with the heat in sheer long sleeves. I have a few people who are self conscious about showing too much arm.

            That's how my Mom is (not wanting to show too much). Our ceremony is closer to dusk, and in April, so I don't think we'll have heat issues like many of you other brides.

            Actually, funny thing was, I told Mom whatever color she wanted ... but when she told me that both outfits she found were in that aqua blue color, I told her PERFECT b/c aqua and coral are our complement colors, so now I figure his Mom sholdn't have any trouble finding something coral and I think it'll look great. His Mom is about as big as my pinky anyway, so everything looks good on her..

              I know what you mean, my BM dresses are tangerine and we have chocolate brown, kiwi green and cream as the other colors. So I wanted to stay within the brown family. I ordered her this dress in two different colors.Click the image to open in full size. andClick the image to open in full size.

              I love the copper rose color--of course, she doesn't. She likes the blue, which is nice but I'm afraid it may clash...maybe not, just want her to be comfortable, likely be in the high 80s...

                I am sorry I have no ideas, but I love what you picked. I don't think I have a say in the matter when it comes to MY MOM... but by FI's mom is willing to wear whatever I ask.. She is such a sweetie..

                  Those are both totally great dresses. I love brown too, but Mom doesn't -- says it doesn't look good on her, but then again she does look better in brighter colors.

                    Since Maggie has asked her guests and her maids to wear variations of white, I bought a long (middle of calf) cream colored, chiffonish skirt by Lauren, that has layered vertical ruffles. Sounds weird, but very lovely. It has a cami and a shear long sleeved jacket/blouse to wear over the cami. I will try to post a pic tomorrow.
                    For the dance, at the reception, Maggie wore her crinoline and a lovely lace top. Looks like Tadd likes it!
