Mother of a Groom Dress

What is she thinking...maybe this is not a good Mother of the Groom dress?
(Gown and accessories designed and sewn by Decadent for her role in, "Where's Charlie?" UMEI Community Players. And no, she did not keep snacks in the sleeves.)

LOL!!!! I was told that the mother of the groom should avoid drawing attention to herself and away from the bride. This dress - though I must say is quite beautiful - probably fits in that category!

I have to wonder if those sleeves would allow you to walk down the aisle . . . :)

Leila said...

Do it! Do it!


Still no mother of the bride dress here.

Jeanne said...

Love you
Love the dress.
I think the Bride is the main focus of the wedding day and perhaps this may be suited for another occasion.

Love you

I have decided to wear a burlap sack. And CL, my sleeves are not what I'm worried about. :)

I don't know if this is the sort of post a man should comment on, but I really love this dress. It looks like something my wife would like to wear. Maybe not to her son's wedding, but then again....

Patricia said...

Dearest Trish - I do believe that a burlap sack might attract even MORE attention than the dress! YOu are too funny!

I saw your wife's wedding dress, Richard. Just gorgeous. I can see why she would like this.

This dress by the way is actually a skirt with train and bodice. The sidebar photo shows what you get when the sleeve extensions and collar dickey are removed. It was for the same performance.

For the ballroom scenes, I removed the sleeve extensions, twisted up the elasticized sleeve bottoms tucking the excess back under itself where it was held there by the elastic, creating a smaller puff suitable for a ballgown.

The organza collar and satin rose were hiding under the velvet collar and lace jabot.
