    Girllllll my mom and his mom both are going to change dresses. One to ceremony and one to reception - even I'm not doing that and I'm the bride

    Oh my goodness, Valentina! Your mom must be so excited for your wedding day if she is pulling out all of the stops for her outfit. It's great that she found something that she loves! Do you love it too?

    My mother said she wants to buy something so nice she'll get buried in it too 馃檮馃う
    That is not what I had in mind when I told her to buy something she'd wear again.

    Haha is she paying or are you? I guess your day is important to her and she wants to look her best!

    Haven鈥檛 seen it yet 馃槀but she has good taste and does have a hard time picking out clothes for herself so I鈥檓 sure it鈥檚 beautiful. Her boss probably had something to do with pushing her to get something so expensive.

    My mom didn鈥檛 spend a lot on her outfit, right under $100 I think, but she did stress over every detail.first choosing the right outfit, then Shoes, hair piece, brooch, jewelry. Even more than I did, lol.

    That is how my mom usually is, I鈥檝e never known her to spend more than $200 on an outfit so that鈥檚 why I find it so odd at what she picked out this time.

    Yes they are best friends most of the time when her boss isn鈥檛 in one of her moods. 馃槀She owns a small dress shop in town my mom works in the alterations department.

    Unless you are paying, not your business. Has it occurred to you that it is harder for many older women to find flattering dresses? My mom would likely say the minute I complain about anything she spends on herself will result in her not spending a nickel on me.

    Wow ouch,馃槀 yes I understand that, she definitely finds it hard to find dresses that flatter her and mostly because she has insecurities about areas of her body. A lil bit of background- we live together and I know she can鈥檛 afford it and know it has to be that her boss and coworkers are encouraging her to do this. She has tried on quite a few dresses and out of the recent five I told her three of them were beautiful and very flattering and two were just too plain for mother of the bride. Also she was telling me that this customer came into the shop for alterations and she was a mother of a bride to be and her dress was $900 so that maybe why her budget changed馃う馃徎鈥嶁檧锔忦煒

    Wow, I dont think she should spend that much and had the same discussion with my mother BUT she wants to feel that she looks right for you-I'm sure that's what she is thinking about. My mom wanted to make sure that I liked the dress, she somewhat matched the bridal party and that she was comfortable and looked nice in the dress,as well. Have fun!
