Mother of groom dress
225

Offredismysister · 26/07/2022 19:21

Is this print nice or is it like a pair of old ladies curtains? If it’s relevant, I’m a fairly young MoG (44) size 10-12 & 5’6 I have long dark hair & will be tanned from holiday. I was thinking hair loose with a cream padded headband.

Completely different option is the black with a black headband or hat. The bride & groom don’t mind me wearing black as they’re not traditional at all.

I like the first one, the black one is a bit tarty for a MOG.

The first one is much better. The black has got too much flesh and is a bit 'NYE party'. I think you could find better than either of them though tbh.

This first is lovely. Not at all like old ladies curtains. Definite no to the second, not the right dress for the occasion.

Thanks, I wasn’t sure about the black. A friend wore it in navy & recommended it. I feel like I’ve looked everywhere & nothing stands out. I’ve tried a few from self portrait & a few in selfridges but nothing has been the one. I don’t want something traditional & old fashioned. Any suggestions?

First one isn't smart enough for MotG. The second one isn't suitable as or's evening wear.

Black one definitely is too party/nighttime with the lace bodice and the floral one doesn't feel dressy enough. What about something between the two?

Neither would be quite right imo. Have you looked at Phase 8? I like this, but there are lots of nice outfits on their website.

The Nadine Merabi comes in other colours, would you consider a different colour other than black?

Some good suggestions thanks.
I think the merabi might be too tarty whatever the colour?

To be honest, yes it is a bit much. I wouldn't wear it personally. It is less tarty in the other colours though.

Have you considered Needle and Thread? www.needleandthread.com/collections/dresses

I think strapless isn't right, in any colour.

Sorry but I think that Phase 8 one is really horrible.

What's your budget? Westwood sale

Self Portrait amazing colour

No to the first dress. It's a special day for you and needs a special dress. Some lovely links on this thread. But very much no to the first dress.

What time of day is the wedding and is it formal, barndance, hootenany, etc?

Neither very nice. I would look around a bit more.

My 3rd link didn't work: it's the Zimmermann Anneke floral-print cotton wrap dress

Sorry, I don’t think either is appropriate.

Hope & Ivy might be worth a look (similar styles to the first dress you posted, but a little dressier).

Monsoon possibly worth a glance too.

Budget is £380 I already have shoes & bags so won’t need them. The wedding is in a country house but not formal as in the bride & groom are not traditional & have said everyone is to wear what they want.
I really don’t want Gina baccconi, ghost, monsoon etc, that’s not me at all. I do like the Westwood one but the neck won’t suit as I have a DD bust.

First is too casual, second just not appropriate at all.

I actually really like the floral dress, though I'd want to see it in real life, and particularly how the slit, which looks like it might be alarmingly high cut, worked as you moved!
