Hi,

Just wondering what everyone is having the mother of the groom where? I was going to put my mom in the same color as my bridesmaids. Not sure what to do about the mother of the groom. My colors are coral and turqouise. Should she wear turquoise? Or just anything she wants?

I let my MIL purchase her own dress. She has a few and I don't think has even decided between them. She has one I really love and am hoping she will be able to wear, however, she said its a bit small and I don't have high hopes for it.

My colors are fuchsia and navy blue. I was thinking about having my mom and his mom wear navy blue and having my sisters wear fuchsia. I am not sure how to even ask his mom if she wants to go dress shopping with me or if she will wear navy blue. She lives 6 hours from us, so it would be a whole trip if we did go dress shopping for her together.

Wow you girls are a lot nicer than I was! haha My color was navy/ight blue and I asked my MIL NOT to wear navy. I didn't want her or my mother matching my girls. The mothers picked their own dresses, my mother wore a black/fushia dress and MIL wore a green/teal flower design dress. Both looked nice!

I think because we are not having a wedding party it just makes it look nice if the mother's are wearing the same color. I saw a picture of it while researching wedding photographers and it looked great! And it's nice for the staff of your resort to be able to easily pick them out and make sure they are taken care of.

Very good point! I didn't think of that, if there is no wedding party. I'm sure that will look nice!

Thanks ladies!!!! I originally wanted the moms in my wedding colors so our wedding pictures will look nice. Now I'm not sure it really matters to me.

My mil didn't even consult me...which I was kinda annoyed by.  Even my stepMIL asked me what she should wear.  She then picked out a few dresses and asked me which one I like best.  we ended up favoring the same dress.

Hi @@liz24

 

Congrats!

 

Traditional etiquette is the mother of the bride should select her dress & color first, and then the mother of the groom should select her dress after the Mother of the Bride in similar formality, length etc but a different color. The mother of the bride dress sometimes is similar to the bridesmaids dresses in color.  The "mothers" dresses should complement each other.

 

This is all just traditional- it's your wedding, so do whatever you like and what works best for you!

 

I stupidly told my MIL to be that she can wear any color dress that she wants. I was trying to  make it easy for her. She is apparently wearing pants and a blouse….couldn't tell you what color or what any of it looks like b/c she hasn't consulted me at all. So be careful with giving too much freedom! It has totally back fired on me :( I wish that I had been more specific.

 

Good luck! :)

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
