As soon as you walk into the luxurious settings of a Neiman Marcus salon - you feel like a princess or should I say a queen. The wedding shop boutique offers a beautiful range of choices and options. I especially liked the stophisticated look of the Lace Bow Jacket and Long Skirt #1 - the color of the pale beige being one of my favorites, #2 - sexy without being over the top and #3 - soft and feminine. An outfit you can live and breathe in, with comfort and style and don't forget graceful...since you are the hostess and want to greet your guests with decorum. This is quite a beautiful combination.
So, if you're looking for a formal and stately dress and a little bit more than "Sunday best" then choose a dress wisely and appropriately for a special ceremony or maybe a religious ritual. Social procedure dictates whether to wear a long formal dress, formal gown or a smart and sophisticated skirtsuit. So be sure to take into account the occasion and time of day as well as the location or setting.
A mother of the bride dress should be so special. I remember the day I got married and my mother as well as my mother-in-law just looked beautiful. Complementary not competing in their gorgeous cocktail dresses. I think I'm one of the lucky ones since they both looked lovely yet different and individual in their choice of styles, colors and fabrics. And of course, my pictures are and were beautiful - which I treasure to this day.
