To think this isn't really a suitable dress for mother of the groom ?

It's not very flattering, is it?

PastysPrincess Thu 22-Jun-17 20:57:01

I think it's lovely.

LardLizard Thu 22-Jun-17 20:57:23

It's even Lacey as well 😵

Just in case it's not obvious

It's a bit "cruise ship singer" but its not white or bridal looking, I've seen worse.

My mil wore a silver dress to the evening part of our wedding. Totally fine.

It's a lovely dress, but yes op, possibly a bit pale and long to wear to your son's wedding.

I'm not seeing the problem here confused

Not my thing but I'd have thought it's pretty ideal for a wedding. What's the beef?

Llamacorn Thu 22-Jun-17 20:58:12

Um, I don't get what's wrong with it?

AnnieOH1 Thu 22-Jun-17 20:58:31

Personally I think a lot would depend on where the wedding was taking place, when and what the theme was.

For a traditional church wedding absolutely not, but for a hotel with a modern theme, why the heck not?

It's beautiful 😍

It's not too bad if you are Shirley Bassey

isseywithcats Thu 22-Jun-17 20:59:32

the review says the wedding is in long island american weddings tend to be late afternoon evening dos, and i dont think theres anything wrong with it, she might be a young mom so say son twenties she might only be forties herself,

Am I missing something? It's gorgeous! Not all mothers of grooms are drab old women.

WellErrr Thu 22-Jun-17 21:00:05

It looks like bloody wedding dress.

Of course it's completely unsuitable.

Patronsaintofglocks Thu 22-Jun-17 21:00:07

Think you might just be a jealous hag

LardLizard Thu 22-Jun-17 21:00:15

It's alright if you potentially want to look like the bride or a bridesmaid !

Its horrid, but nothing wrong with it for a wedding particularly.

bonfireheart Thu 22-Jun-17 21:00:47

It's lovely.

I suppose it depends on the theme/style of the wedding. It would look out of place in the local church hall with a chicken and chip basket, on the other hand if you are having your reception at an up market venue where guests would be expected to change into evening attire, it is perfectly acceptable.

Its SILVER. Its not a wedding dress, clearly.
