The past couple of weeks I have attended, what I expect are two of Scotland’s largest, wedding fayres. We have almost everything we need for our wedding now and so I have been wandering around at a more leisurely pace, being able to spend time over the finer details – stationery, flowers, accessories and generally just have a good old nosey!
My mum however, still doesn’t and hasn’t really begun looking for an outfit. Now, I should explain that my mum is a terrible shopper, she will try on everything she thinks should look good, be impressed by nothing and then go back round all the same shops trying on anything and everything – generally finding something in the first shop. From seeing the mother of the brides outfits on display at the wedding fayres, I am confident that finding that perfect outfit is going to be tough.
I’ve mentioned before all of the high street shops offering great wedding ranges for the bride and her bridesmaids – but the same applies for mother of the bride/groom. Below are a few of my favourites – Mum if you are reading – one of these may be the one!
- John Lewis – with a great range of brands and a personal shopper on hand, this store is ideal for indecisive shoppers. These dresses are ideal;
- Planet – can be found in both John Lewis and Debenahms, but to see their full range or sign up for special discount offers please visit the company’s website. Colour blocking is massive for 2011, so for all you trendy mums out there, how about this;
- Like Planet, Jacques Vert can also be found in major high street department stores. Aimed at a slightly more mature audience, Jaques Vert have some lovely flattering dresses to suit all shapes and sizes.
As always, hope you stumble across something useful!
