The hunt for a good Mother of the Groom Dress seemed so simple. This blue dress was good but they only had smaller sizes. And the nude lining was a little much. But it was such a well designed dress that luckily I took notice of the designer's name - Tadashi Shoji.
And then I found this great burgundy lace Adrianna Papell - and I bought it. Should have been the end of the search, right?
So why am I trying on this Tadashi Shoji dress two days before the wedding? By the way, I loved it but am against black at weddings on the Groom's mother. (Me.)
The reason I had to run to South Coast Plaza and search out a different dress from the Burgundy one I planned on wearing was because Amanda sent me a picture of the dress she planned on wearing and it was the exact same Lace - I mean exact same - Color and Designer. So why did I decide it would be easier for me to find a different dress than for her to? Because she is just the slightest bit hard to fit these days since she is just the slightest bit pregnant! (Hoorah!)
This is her with Kelsey, Nick, and Zach. The shoulder at the far edge of this picture is Kelsey's very handsome brother Dustin and I will add a picture of him as soon as I find one.
So here is my last minute purchase and I just loved wearing it.
The backdrop for these pictures is a set of barn doors that Kelsey's mother Linda whitewashed to perfection. And she made our corsages - Roses and Miniature Cali Lilies - so pretty! All I did was find a dress - I didn't even make it myself. This Mother of the Groom thing is pretty sweet.
This is Kelsey and Nick with her parents - the sun is in their eyes so just ignore their expressions. Her mother, Linda wore the most beautiful beaded dress with matching shoes that I wish I had a better picture of. Soft pinkish beige with flat bows - so good with the dress. Just perfect.
