Mother-Of-The-Bride Dress

I went shopping for a mother-of-the-bride dress this week, and I have to say that it was no fun........mainly because there's not a lot of cute styles out there right now.  I started out at Macy's, found something pretty but wanted to shop around, went to five other shops, and ended up at Macy's.  I didn't find anything more appealing than the first dress I saw.  I was determined to get something that day, and I'm glad that I did because the Fall collections will be coming out soon.  My dress is lace in a mocha color, and it will go well with her wedding colors.  I think Jess will be pleased with it.  Here's a peek of what it looks like.

Trying to find a
mother-of-the-bride dress
is not easy.
I'm glad that's done.
(an inside joke between me and Jess).  ; )
Now, all I need to get
is shoes, jewelry, and a handbag.
It won't be long now, Jess.

Oh Sheri, the fabric is gorgeous! I know things are getting more exciting now! Enjoy every moment. ♥


I remember looking for mine. It's a daunting task, I know. But you did it. The color is GORGEOUS. And that lace divine. You will look perfect for your daughters important day.

Not an easy outfit to buy, but that glimpse of the lace, looks lovely & I'm sure you will be a beautiful Mother of the bride. I chose red for my daughters wedding and felt good. for my sons wedding ... black & cream, that was not a good choice. At the time I thought it was, at that time I had put on a lot of weight and thought it would make me look slimmer, now when I look back at the photos I don't know what I was thinking about when I chose that outfit, big mistake I looked awful. can't wait to see the beautiful bride & all the outfits from this special day.

Sheri, I know that was like a chore...cause sometimes it so very hard to find the right things. You will be gorgeous , I am sure. It's going to be a beautiful wedding...please do not stress. Your girls are very well organized, I bet. Love that sweet picture. It seems they should not be old enough to marry just yet...right? Bless you young mommy, xoxo,love, Susie

Looks a very nice dress!

Hooray for you! And I'm sure you will be lovely, in your choice!

I got the first dress, and only dress, I tried on, for our daughter's wedding. And when our son was married, the next year, I went back to "Ursula of Switzerland" and got another lovely dress. Yes, it was that easy! (By the time our last son was married, it wasn't so easy, but I will remember the first two! -grin-)

Oh how exciting!!! Please do take us along, down this lovely Path, which you are on.

Hugs, hugs, hugs,

Oh Sheri,
I so recall shopping for a mother of the bride dress! Not easy, especially if you kind of know what you'd like to find! I ended up buying mine on line from Macy's. Yours looks exquisite and I'm sure it's gorgeous!
all the best as the count down begins...

Imogen said...

I've definitely heard it isn't easy! Your dress looks incredibly beautiful and lace is the perfect choice. Must be an exciting time given the wedding is close now.

Stephanie said...

My dear friend, from what I can see the dress looks stunning and I know you will look beautiful in anything :) I remember when my mom and I went shopping for the dress my mom would wear at my wedding...it was quite the ordeal as there wasn't a lot to choose from. She ended up finding a lovely dress that was so her and she looked radiant in it :)

Hugs and love to you!

The Lace looks beautiful Sheri :)

lovely Greetings!

Patricia said...

Gorgeous Sheri - I love that mocha colour. And I love beaded lace too. I am also working on my outfit for my son's wedding and great minds think alike, as I have also chosen lace with some beading.

You know my friend, I too do NOT like to shop for cloths. Mainly because so many of the things I love are TOO EXPENSIVE!HHAHAHAHAHHAHAH and, some things just don't fit me right! But I'm sure your dress will be lovely on that special day. The countdown is on for Jess! Sending you hugs my sweet, Anita

Oh my, pretty fabric and color. I'm sure you'll look lovely, Sheri.
I found it nearly IMPOSSIBLE to find the dress I wanted, and in the end I never found the style I had always hoped for. I'm glad that at least I found the color I wanted. I had always hoped for blue mainly because it represents gaining a son. :)
Dillard's had nice choices, and they also provide a seamstress.
Keep those wedding prep posts coming. So fun.

Red Rose Alley said...

Haha, I love your last photo with the two kids and the teddy. And I know I will love your dress when I see it. It's amazing how many things are 'no fun' in the wedding planning process!

Well that little peep ... looks good to me. What an exciting time isn't it ... I feel very privileged to be sharing it with you.

Love that last picture so cute - just perfect.

Enjoy your days Sheri

All the best Jan

It looks lovely.
I will be honest, I dislike dress shopping. I seem to never to have any luck.
I am so excited for you.

Mercy F said...

The fabric looks pretty and elegant, must be a beautiful dress. Shopping is always tiring I must say that's why sometimes I opt online. But for this occasion nothing beats going to the shops and looking at the exact thing to avoid disappointment. Hope you will have a great time shopping for the rest of the ensemble.

Oh Wow, so beautiful and I love the lace on it. I hate shopping so bad anymore and it tires me out to no end. I know the wedding is going to be so beautiful and you'll be as pretty as the bride. Love Susie.
