Dressing the Mother of the Bride or Groom

The Bride\'s Mother

The Wedding Date is Saved! Now, What is Mom Going to Wear?

The excitement of your daughter's or son's wedding plans take center stage. So many things have led to this thrilling event. First was the initial enthusiasm of the engagement, followed by the wedding date announcement. Then meeting the other parents-- your future family members. Once planning begins,  there is an important person whose needs are sometimes overshadowed--that person is the mother of the bride or groom! There tends to be so much focus on the young couple's preparations and that of their attendants, that moms often postpone the vital decision of planning what to wear!

You will want to look your loveliest on your daughter's big day, yet,  there are lots of reasons that this decision tends to be neglected. For one thing, you might not have shopped for a special occasion outfit in a while.  A Mom might simply not know where to begin or what to look for. You might have an idea in mind of overly formal attire that does not seem to suit you. Happily, times have changed, styles for special occasions have become more relaxed, more youthful and fluid. Today's selections are designed to flatter mature figures, are comfortable, easy to wear, and graceful.

The sooner you plan your outfit for the wedding, the better.  Once that all-important decision is made, there are related special events to consider. What will you wear for the shower or engagement party, the rehearsal dinner, or breakfast following the wedding day? You will be seeing a lot of the same people, and lots of photos are going to be snapped. You are going to want different outfits for each occasion. You might choose outfits in varying styles ranging from  casual to dressy, yet all should coordinate. This will make your life simpler, especially if you are traveling, and will help create your "signature syle." There is a place where your needs can be met, with elegant, affordable solutions.
Joanie Char Design specializes in stylish wear for any occasion--whenever you want to look your best. Her dressier styles include stunning styles with hand-sewn couture detailing.  She offers pure silks in various textures, shapes, and colors. Outfits can be three piece ensembles of a stylish jacket over a silk shell completed with a skirt or pants. Choose from straight and sleek to flared with flirty hems. Or finish your look with slim pants or flowing palazzo styles.

For more casual events, she offers charming novelty designs in linens, wools, or blends. Choose your color scheme-- the new pales, or vibrant color statements, or sophisticated neutrals. There are flattering styles for every style preference from feminine to tailored, and for every body type--from petite to tall and full-figured. Custom-fitting is included and alterations are free.
