My mom (early 50's) is getting married the end of September (and I couldn't be more thrilled and happy for her!) and planning a small, casual backyard wedding with immediate family/close friends. Right now she's having trouble settling on a dress.
She is adamant that she does NOT want a traditional wedding dress, and anything white/ivory is completely out. The problem is, every place we've looked so far is either too formal (looks like Mother of the Bride) or too casual (looks like the church lady, lol). Likewise, everything appears either too youthful or too elderly. She does't want to look "bridal" but she rightly wants to stand out as the bride, and I'm running out of suggestions to give her. I know it's a tall order, but does anyone have any ideas where to look for plus-size, semi-casual dresses? Thanks in advance!
