Bridal Inspiration {Mother of the Bride}



My mother and my future mother-in-law are very attractive ladies and at this early juncture, seem to love each other. They’ve been discussing together what to wear to our nuptials. They don’t want to dress alike but want to compliment each other. So many of the “mother of the bride” dress categories I see on sites like Dillards, Nordstorms and Macy’s are sooo not something that would make a MOB feel beautiful. I know that my mothers started dieting long before I did, so they will and they should look their best. And as an Southern girl knows, it’s their time to shine too. While I know they will unlikely be purchasing from Net-A-Porter, that site does such a lovely job of recommending styles that an actual beautiful mother of the bride would want to where. Therefore they are a good place to start for inspiration. A question I have for you, dear readers, can a MOB wear black?

Bridal Inspiration {Parties}

Now that I have THE DRESS, I can focus on  the dresses (among other things) that I will hopefully wear to parties here and there. I love the idea of the bride wearing a chic white dress to all the engagements she attends. Here are some inspiring dresses…
