I NEED HELP...ok maybe advice would be a better word

I am starting to stress out a little about what the "mother of the groom" wears for the reception .
I even found a web site about 'Proper mother of the groom etiquette"
I don't know...long or short dress?
Should I get a dress I can wear again?






Oh yea...and where do I find the body that makes any dress look good????

What is her Mom wearing?

Isn't the reception outside?

short, that you can wear again.

But I know if you wanted to really know what I think you would ask me on the phone! heehee

Lene said...

oh and what color are you wearing?

I would say to coordinate with the mother of the bride. But I would wear a short dress that I could wear again if it was up to me. Oh, and how formal/casual is the reception going to be? Maybe a longer dress would be more formal, but not always.

I so need this post too :)

I love the black one. I would shorten it a bit. And its not that modest. Ding.

Pretty choices and good luck and thanks for the link.

Ha ha i have news for you baby you've already got it!

These dresses are beautiful Janiece!

I think I'd wear a long one if the reception was at night and if it's going to be more on the formal side.

Or, if the reception is at night, wear a long one for the reception and then a short one to the temple.

I can't wait to see what you end up picking out!

Make sure it is something you like and will wear again. Try coordinating with her mother but just try to find something in her color range and it will be great!

I think I like the blue one...now I just have to remember what web site I founds the picture on...
hehehhe

Anson...you are so getting DQ!

Oh, all of those are so beautiful! Your future daughter-in-law will clue you in on the color and formality of the dress, I think. Brides are pretty good about letting you know.

You have to excuse my son. He just thinks you're the cutest lady ever. I think it's a good idea to talk to Alison about it too. I like the last one for a wedding.

what I wore to both of my kids wedding, I wore to the reception. But like I told you, I have places where I can wear dresses like this all the time. All of your choices that you posted are really pretty....
