My mom is very petite, she is 4'11" at 91 lbs and is 59 years.
Most people think she is much younger than her actual age. I am at a loss since most of the mother of the bride dresses I've been seeing look so horrendous and very old-ish. I want my mom to look beautiful and comfortable and the dress should work for her, not drown her in fabric.
I am looking at something knee-length since we are having an outdoor wedding in California this August (and Christina Richards will be our photographer! So excited!). But I still haven't found anything. I would love suggestions, please! :D
Note: My dress [pictured above] is short as well.
Depending on how adventurous your mom is....
This silk abstract floral dress from Banana Republic has a youthful/ladylike feel.
And then the is just RAD.
(Both come in petite.)
