Mother of the Bride by Vicky
Cheryl came into DressPlace with little confidence and totally daunted about being Mother of the Bride. After having an informal chat, and a cup of tea she began to feel more comfortable about how she wanted to look. Her daughter, the bride, also came with her for support and input, as to how she should look on the day of the wedding, taking into account colours themes, styles and shapes. So I began by showing her some outfits by Condici, John Charles and Ispirato, and after initially thinking that they weren’t for her, she gradually started to picture herself with the bride and groom at the church, toning with the colour theme of the bridesmaids and flowers. Cheryl was conscious of her tummy, and her arms, which is very common for most ladies. The style which suited her perfectly was a Social Occasions by Mon Cherie dress in beautiful pastel colours, which was fitted and ruched to one side, which is very flattering to hide tummies. It had a wide neck which sat on the shoulder, with ¾ sleeves, which made her very happy as it solved her arm issues. At DressPlace we pride ourselves in knowing our designers, styles and shapes, to make the most of anyone’s shape, be it pear, apple, tall or slim. Cheryl also took the opportunity to have her alterations with us, which made her feel very confident as our seamstresses are experts at doing many different alterations to suit our Mothers’ needs. Cheryl left DressPlace feeling fabulous and confident in an outfit with shoes, bag and hat, all in coordinating colours. With all of our Mother of the Bride and Mother of the Groom outfits, we offer Rainbow shoes and bags, which can be dyed to colour match any outfit. Ladies walk out of DressPlace fitted out from head to toe, being looked after from beginning to end for their wedding. We offer many different shapes, styles and colours for our Mother of the Bride and also Grandmother’s of the bride, or the more mature bride and second timers, who want less traditional look for their wedding. We stock sizes from 8 to 28, in a variety of styles, taking in account different trends and fashions for the petite lady and the curvy lady. We give a one to one personal service; putting people at ease and making them feel special for their big event.
