10 Beautiful Mother of the Bride Dresses

While it’s true that a wedding is technically all about celebrating the bride and groom,  when it’s your daughter who is getting married, the wedding becomes The Big Day for you, too. You’re marrying off your child, throwing a party for your closest family and friends, and will likely be in many of the photos from the day. Which means you’ll want to look your best.

If you’re unsure what to wear to your daughter’s wedding, we’ve pulled some of our favorite options for every style to help you find “the one.”

Your Style is: Elegant & Sophisticated
Your style could best be described as chic and timeless. You prefer to avoid trends, and opt instead for classic pieces and silhouettes.

The show, which was put on by a terrific group of senior students, from football players,to cheerleaders, and members of the honor roll, was an elegant, exciting success

A highlight of the night? Watching the students transform before our eyes into beautiful young women and handsome young men, ready for the ball (or in this case, prom). It was so exciting to see a full turn out of friends and family to support this worthy cause and have a ton of fun doing it.

Here’s a quick recap of some of our favorite Glitterati prom dress looks from the night.

Trend of the Week: Mesmerizing Mesh featuring Sherri Hill 11151, La Femme 19993, and Jovani 79034!

As a major part of the fashion world, trends come and go, and others stay for years on end. One trend we noticed as being a hit this past year was mesh. Many prom dresses featured lace inserts, and they typically were the ones flying off the racks! Both edgy and classy, mesh is perfect for warmer weather and for the colder months when it’s able to be layered with other fabrics easily. Whether you choose to be completely meshed out, or just feature a mesh insert, mesh details are all the rage this season! Here’s a look at some of our favorite styles featuring mesh this year.
