When thinking of your bridal party you can not forget your MOB (mother of the bride) or future mother-in-law MOG (mother of the groom) and what they are going to wear. My mom picked out a dress that I really did not like. It was not blingy enough for me. I wanted her to be just as beautiful, if not more as me. My mom and I did find something that I really liked and was blingy enough as well, and that she felt pretty in and comfortable in. It is also something that she can wear again to church. When I went to Detroit this past summer, I found my mom some pretty silver shoes with rhinestones on them that match her suit for a whole $5.00. What a find. I have not found anything for broomjumpinggroom MOG. We will hopefully find something for her before the end of the year. When picking out the the gown for your MOB or MOG, here is a few things to remember....
- Communication is key-- Talk to your MOB or MOG and let her know your vision for the wedding. Get an understanding for what she likes and find away to make it work for both of you. Make sure that both ladies have a distinctive look of their own and not a carbon copy of the other.
- Get going-- Shop early to look at and try on different styles of dresses.
- Make a match--Look at the your bridal party and your dress to see what style your MOB or MOG needs get.
- Find a hue-- Make sure that you assist your MOB or MOG in picking the right color for the bridal party and for her skin tone.
