My fiance and I aren't getting married terribly soon, our tentative date is Halloween 2014. We're having a zombie themed wedding.
We haven't formally addressed a dress code because we're still working it out, but what we've 99% decided on is having blood family and older people wear normal wedding clothing and then having a makeup artist "zombie" our friends who aren't in the bridal party. So a mix of the living and the living dead.
My plus sized, (then will be) 53 year old mother has decided she wants to wear a short, lime green dress, with white polka dots.
My fiance and I live in Santa Barbara, California. October isn't terribly cold for us, but we will be on a cliff overlooking the ocean, so it'll be chilly there and the reception is at a different location but still primarily outdoors. So "short" isn't something I would recommend. Especially since she's one of those women who is always cold anyway..
I've been trying to dissuade her gently by emailing her lists of other suggestions, but I have no idea where to find nice plus sized dresses. I also don't know exactly what her size is, my guess would be 18ish?
Any help with MOB dress suggetions? Our "wedding colors" do actually include green, and also black and white and I'll be wearing a pink and black gown. So GREEN isn't a problem. But a little polka dot dress with ruffles is.
