So my son's wedding snuck in between 2 snowstorms
yet everything turned out wonderfully.
But of course, its' all about the dress..
(hear my story via video)
dress from Aliexpress

You knew I would be a different mother of the groom, and with my pillbox hat and fake fur for outside, I think I was just that. (more pictures later)
There are so many traditions surrounding weddings that it's tricky going outside the accepted. I did check with the bride beforehand on my choice of dress, by the way, as it was a bit unusual. I do hear of a lot of opinions on how a MOB/MOG should look and many brides, for example, still like their mom to wear a long dress.
My dress for the rehearsal dinner was a bit more expected; it was Valentine's Day after-all. Here it is 2 days later for work.
Looking a bit tired, but it was all worth it!

Details: The dress had 3 tiers of netting; one black and 2 cream. The lacy details were more like crewel work than actual lace. The back was closed by lacing, and I had to find someone to strap me in. The bodice was all boned but I still wore a full length bra underneath. All for $48!

How about you? (in particular, all my friends over at Patti's Visible Monday) Would you prefer to stick with the traditional MOB/MOG or
would you dare go outside the box?
