Mother of Groom

Hi I am a mother of a groom.  The colors of the wedding are purple/yellow.  The brides mother is wearing the purple and so are the bridesmaids.  The groom/groomsmen are wearing black suits/shirts with yellow ties.  Me, as MOG is wearing a yellow dress.  It is tealength.

 She wanted her mom and myself to look "our ages" and not frumpy so she wanted us to not wear gowns or "suit like" outfits.  I need suggestions for jewelry and shoes to go with this dress.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    hi MOG!
    that's a beautiful dress.  what about a soft gold metal with light purple stones, these earrings are from sorrelli just as an idea and you could find a coordinating bracelet also,

    and then maybe a metallic gold but not too blingy shoe?  these are cole haan nike airs, $$ but super comfy and you'll be dancing all night!  also they often have sales and outlet stores in different areas.  or you could try naturalizer too.
    happy shopping and happy wedding!

    [QUOTE]Denise, I love that dress!  Do you have shoes and jewelry already that would go with it, or are we buying all new?  Because I could see any number of shoe colors working with that dress -- black, nude, silver, possibly gold.  And tell us what jewelry you're usually comfortable wearing?  My mom, for example, when she wears jewelry at all it's always very delicate.  She just isn't a chunky jewelry kind of lady.

    Hi Lucy, no I don't have any shoes or jewelry yet.  I love how the model looks, but unfortunately, I don't look no where near that good.  I was thinking of a nude shoe, but not so sure.  I normally wear gold jewelry.  I am in my late 40's.

    Thanks for any info

    Hi Arrabelle,

    Thanks for the reply.  I just love those earrings!!  I will have to go take a look and see what else I can find.  I have short hair so that would work.  The shoes are cute too.

    Keep the suggestions coming

    I love the dress, and I'm sure you're going to look fabulous in it :) I think gold jewelery is the best way to go, and I like the idea of the purple accents in the jewelery. For the shoe, I would go for a black shoe, something very simple, open or closed toe, whatever your liking is. I think the yellow with the black is a nice combo, and goes well with the groom's side, since you seem to be doing it that way! Good luck!!

    Hi!  I think that dress is great!  I am thinking I like the black shoes on the model too, but I also think nude/beige shoes might look nice.

    What about crystal jewelry?  I can't see the detail below at the waist well enough to tell if crystals would pick up on that or not, but if so, it might work.

    Good luck  - it is a very pretty dress.

    That's a pretty dress!

    My first thought when I looked at it was a big cuff bracelet and similar dramatic earrings with no necklace.  Silver with a touch of rhinestone or CZ-sparkle would be good.

    I love the dress.  Very appropriate for a mother of the groom! Good choice!
    I have a website, maybe I can help you.  Look at my website and check out the earrings there.  They are affordable.

    [QUOTE]I think a nude shoe would be great.  A black shoe with a light colored dress can sometimes look heavy and clunky unless it's a very strappy sandal with very high, slim heels.  Nude shoes kind of disappear visually and make the leg look longer and leaner.

    That is what I heard also about the black shoes.  I need to try and look as tall as I can.  LOL...Hopefully I will find something this week because the wedding is on the 11th of June.

    Thanks all about the dress!  I really appreciate it.  I am normally a gold jewelry person, but I really love the purple in those earrings.

    I think it's a beautiful dress! Why couldn't you incorporate the purple color. I liked the purple stone earrings someone showed. And how about a pale purple shoe? Yellow (gold) and purple are complimentary colors.
    It's a bit of a more daring look, I tend to be more subtle but I long to be that fashionista!
