Something Chic

Your son or daughter’s wedding day is your day to shine too. Choosing a figure flattering outfit in colors that bring out your best features is the key. For the wedding of her daughter, Julie wore this gorgeous ruched dress in a deep, beautiful midnight blue.

This dress complements Julie in every way possible. The cut is ideal for her body type, and the color of the dress is a nice match to Julie’s skin tone. This dress is stunning, Julie.

Something Custom

When considering mother of the bride outfits, your first thought is likely to be a dress. But many women don’t like dresses or just aren’t comfortable in a dress. For those women, dressy pants or a pantsuit are perfectly acceptable. Mother of the bride, Margy, chose a jacket and pants combination for her daughter’s California wedding.

She paired her lovely French silk brocade jacket with a pair of Dupioni silk pants. And to make her outfit even more special and memorable, she created it herself! Margy is a seamstress, and she put her master skills in action to create her MOB outfit. She used a Guy Laroche pattern for the jacket and a custom-designed pattern for the silk pants. So elegant, Margy.

Something Unique

For Megan’s daughter’s wedding in Queensland, Australia in May, she knew she wanted something a bit different from the usual MOB dresses. Although she didn’t have a specific vision in her head, she knew she would know “the one” when she saw it. Megan found the perfect dress while browsing online.

As it turned out, the dress Megan chose couldn’t have been more suitable. The weather was unseasonably warm for May in Australia, and Megan didn’t need a sweater that would have concealed parts of this pretty and delicate lace dress.

Something Blue

A mother of the bride dress should be attention grabbing without being too overly stated. For her daughter’s special day, California native Pamela chose a rich cobalt blue dress with an embellished waist. Pamela’s bold color choice was a perfect match for her silver heels and jewelry.

Mother Of The Bride ebookPam’s bold dress pops without taking any focus off the bride. This is a beautiful color on you, Pamela. For more secrets to looking fabulous when you are the mother of the bride or groom, pick up a copy of my eBook “Mother of the Bride”.

Couple Who Divorced After 23 Years Get Married Again 23 Years Later

A couple who split after 23 years of marriage have tied the knot again… 23 years later. Roz and Ian Ellis from Aberdeen have just got married for the second time, almost 50 years after their first wedding. The couple met in Lanarkshire in Scotland in January 1967 and married a year later. However, after having three sons (Ian, Stewart and Ewan) and eight grandchildren, the couple divorced in 1991. Both remarried – but remained friends – and two years ago they rekindled their romance after both their partners passed away. The couple married for the second time in Aberdeen on January 3, having reignited their relationship after attending their son Stewart’s wedding in 2013. Roz, 66, a former medical secretary, described how she and former teacher Ian, 71, got back together. “Our eldest Ian and his family live in Tasmania, so when they came over for Stewart’s wedding they stayed with Ian,” she said. “Ian and I saw a lot of each other while they were here, as I was always popping over to see the kids. “After Ian and the family went home, I just carried on popping over. “We’d go out to the theatre, out for dinner, on holidays – and it sort of blossomed from there. “We waited a while to tell people, but I think my son Ian had his suspicions at the wedding that there might be a spark between us again.” At the second wedding, eldest son Ian was his father’s best man while son Stewart gave Roz away. Roz said: “Our first wedding was a big traditional affair, so we didn’t feel the need to do it again – we decided to keep it quite low-key with our family and friends. “Everyone said it was such a lovely romantic story – I never thought we’d get married again, but I’m so happy that we did. “I kept my original wedding ring, so I used it again this time round – Ian hadn’t though, so maybe he’s not quite as sentimental as me! “It’s like we’ve come full circle.”
