After a year of uncertainty due to the pandemic, wedding season is finally here. The next question is, “what are we going to wear?” Many of us have adopted a casual lifestyle and dress code due to COVID, and the thought of wearing a dress to attend a wedding or special event can be overwhelming.
The stress is even more intense when you’re the mother of the groom (like me) or part of the bridal party. Last Saturday, my son and his beautiful bride got married, and the pressure was on to find the perfect dress. Here are some of the dresses that caught my attention for the event.
Traditionally, the Bride and Mother of the Bride set the tone, color, and length of the dresses.
Styling tip: This year, dress inventory is low. If you find a dress you like, don’t hesitate, buy it and return later if necessary. I purchased 6 dresses before I found the right dress for my son’s wedding.

Below are a few suggestions for a backyard wedding.
Styling tip: Find a good fitter to alter your dress. Also, I can’t stress enough to have a final fitting of your dress to ensure the hem is the correct length and the dress fits the way you like.
