My outdoor wedding will be on the 30th of May with a 5pm ceremony and a reception dinner dance immediately following. It is a semi-formal affair and my mother prefers a long, taupe, chiffon and lace dress (she has very thin legs) with sleeves. My bridesmaids will wear a light pink chiffon dress with a lace bodice. Do you have any other suggestions for my mother, please?
What we are looking for is a long dress that looks soft and feminine that is also sophisticated. Unfortunately, the mother-of-the-groom has already purchased a beige knee-length, sleeveless, lace dress. Should we now focus mainly on knee or tea-length dresses for my mother and the other ladies?
