Mother of Groom dress

I may have found a dress for my son’s wedding. I know I gained weight over the past 3 years, and am working to lose it. But I feel fat and frumpy. I’m hoping this dress will look better when I lose 10 more lbs. I have until November. And I’m still shopping, but this is an option. My future dil wants me to wear burgandy or a wine color.

I think it’s very flattering—you look wonderful—and I love the color.

And it looks comfortable. That’s important.

Itís beautiful and looks really nice on you. AND, itís not beige!!!!! Too many mothers of the groom wear beige. I like your choice.

You have a lovely figure. The style of the dress really accentuates that. And the color is gorgeous for fall.

I appreciate all your kind comments. Iím 20 lbs heavier than I was when my older son got married, and I even had a waist!

It will be a wonderful day, and, like my sainted grandmother used to say, ďWhoís looking at you anyway?Ē

Thanks again!

I think it is beautiful and looks great on you just as you are.

Just fyi, when I bought my MOB dress last fall for DD's April wedding, I wanted to lose 5 lbs. I gained 5lbs. Glad it was an a- line dress and forgiving!

I love the lace sleeves and scalloped neckline. They are pretty accents.

It's so pretty....and I think you look fantastic!!! It fits nicely so don't beat yourself up over a few pounds. What kind of shoes will you wear? That's always the problem for me, but with this dress, you can get away with low shoes, yes??

I think you look beautiful in that dress! I just went through the whole dress thing when my daughter got married in May. So many hours looking and shopping! Looking back, I wish I had not spent so much time on it. Life's too short and there are too many other things to do. If I found a dress that looked that good, I would snap it up and be done with it!

Thank you for all these positive replies- I appreciate you allí

I can wear any kind of shoes- probably a small heel to make sure it doesnít drag. Hereís the back. The lace goes over the whole dress and at the bottom a few inches of the lace show. Maybe Iíll wear dressy boots!
