Picking a Mother of the Bride’s Dress : Tips for Shopping for a Mother-of-the-Bride’s Dress
I’d also recommend that you take your daughter
with you, if she’s the bride, get her thoughts, she’ll be honest with you, sometimes painfully
honest but she will let you know, what she likes. It is her day and we want her to be
in on the decisions and some brides are a little more specific about what they want
their mothers and mother of the groom to wear, than others. So it’s important to get her
thoughts, if not taking her with you, at least have her thoughts and get information from
her. Likewise, mother of the groom, it’s always a good idea to talk to the bride and get her
wishes. It’s just a good way to start a relationship. Take her shopping with you, if you want to.
Try not to bring too many people with you. Sisters and cousins, friends, nieces and nephews
and it gets to be a real circus. Take one person or maybe two but don’t take a whole
entourage because they’ll just get mixed up in confusing comments and it will just be
too much of a circus to shop.
