As you know Venti and Mocha are getting married in October. Only 3 months away! I know its tradition for the Mother of the Groom to wait for till the Mother of the Bride gets her dress but she has yet to get it...or even look for it! I asked Mocha what I should do because I didn't want to wait until the last minute to get my dress and she said not to wait for her Mom and that I should just go ahead and get one if I find one. When Mocha's sister got married last year her Mom waited until 2 weeks before and picked her dress off the sale rack. Nothing wrong with that but I'm the type that I want to have my dress picked out, altered, hung up and ready to wear a month before!!
Mocha's bridesmaids are wearing Champagne colored long dresses and she wants everyone including the Mother's to wear long dresses. I have been searching online and went to several bridal stores including the large dress shop that Mocha purchased both her dress and the bridesmaids dresses and asked to look at Mother dresses. Well let me just tell you that the Mother dresses look like Mother dresses! These dresses do not fit my personality and I could not find one dress in the Mother dresses that I liked! They look more like Grandmother dresses!!
The sales associate at all the stores suggested that I look at prom dresses because I'm a young Mom for a Mother of the Groom!
Since the bridesmaids are in Champagne Mocha said any greens, blues and browns would look good.
So I find this dress...
The color is Aqua...but it is iridescent and it looks brown in certain lights. I don't really see any Aqua in it except for the Aqua rinestones. To me it looks more tan.
So I thought I would ask your opinion on this dress because I have been searching and searching and this is the only one that I remotely liked. It has a train on it but if I get it I'm going to have it altered and have the train cut off so that its just a normal long dress.
So what do you think?? I need your opinions!!
