I have nearly worn out a pair of shoes trying to find suitable attire for a summer wedding. My wrist is suffering from repetitive strain injury from checking “special occasion” websites.
This search is of great personal interest this year as I am due to fulfil the role of Mother of the Groom this August. I had forgotten how stressful it can be to find the perfect outfit. I was Mother of the Bride 5 years ago and I remember finding it challenging then.
This time round it seemed even harder, either it is my imagination or dresses seem to have become mysteriously shorter and sleeves become nearly extinct. Even though I raised my budget on several occasions the perfect outfit alluded me.
The search is now over and I have found what I consider to be an outfit that I feel supremely comfortable wearing and that for me is one of the most important criteria. It is a touch unusual however it just feels “me”. I just need the final touches of bag and shoes. I am not going to reveal the ensemble in this post for obvious reasons however I will post photos after the event.
Here are a few other alternatives that I consider would tick all the boxes for this important event.
