Lovely, Ladylike, Lace Mother of the Bride Dresses

Mar 31, 2014

Montage by Mon Cheri 113919Caterina by Jordan 9005We’ve dedicated all our blog posts this month to mother of the bride dresses, starting with a spotlight on modern, moving next to plus size, and being sure to take a stop at sexy. There is a natural overlap for all of these categories and more, but as each is a popular criteria unto itself we wanted to give them all their due attention. As for which mother of the bride dresses to focus on in this final post for March, we tossed around a few ideas before the light bulb over ‘lace’ lit up!

We’ve highlighted a few lace mother of the bride dresses already, but there are many more that are also worthy of your consideration. And here are two of them…

Caterina by Jordan 9005: This showstopping gown is simply stunning in every of many available colors. Elegant, refined, grand glamour – this is the lace dress others are measured against! Available in sizes 0 – 34, this trumpet skirt gown is a flattering choice for many figures. Femininity is key from the sweetheart neckline to the removable lace wrap. In fact, it’s the wrap that many women cite as their primary reason for choosing this dress. While it looks flawless without the wrap, it looks just as flawless with it. You would never guess it wasn’t a permanent detail of the dress unless you saw someone take it off!

Montage by Mon Cheri 113919: Sometimes when you’re looking for unique beauty, you just have to take things in from a new angle! Asymmetrical tiers of beautiful blue lace are dramatically defined against a nude underlay. The enchanting effect of the angles is enhanced even further with a single cap sleeve. Romantic, fashionable, and far from the ordinary, this vintage-inspired mother of the bride dress is a perfect 10, like you!

You get one of our sexiest mother of the bride dresses from the VM Mori Lee collection! This slim fit gown is unstoppably gorgeous, and something you’ll actually be able to wear again.

Pretty, Polished, Plus Size Mother of the Bride Dresses

Mar 20, 2014

This month on the blog we’re placing a special focus on our extensive collection of mother of the bride dresses. We have quite a smashing selection, and we don’t always give them the attention they deserve! In our first post, Marvelous, Magnificently Modern Mother of the Bride Dresses, we highlighted two of our favorite statement dresses, one with oversized ruffles, the other a siren red. In this post we’ll be touching on two of our favorite plus size mother of the bride dresses. But for the record, both of those featured in the previous post are available in plus sizes as well! So if you have your heart set on one of the dresses from last week’s post, they are available in sizes 2 – 26 and 4 – 26. Liked those but looking for something different? How about one of these fashionable designs…

All Wrapped Up with a Bow: Among the most popular trends today in everyday fashion and formal fashion is bows. This Alyce mother of the bride dress showcases the bow trend in a very sophisticated, ladylike way. It’s easy for bows to look a bit too casual, but Alyce elevates the bow to a gorgeous grown-up level with the perfect size, placement, and unexpected angle. The sheer sleeves are ideal for women who want some cover for their arms, but not the heaviness in feel and appearance that an opaque sleeve brings. Stylish and refined, this affordable mother of the bride dress is perfect for women of all shapes and sizes, and is available in sizes 4 – 32.

Lovely in Lace: The lace trend isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, and we couldn’t be happier! Lace provides the ultimate in feminine elegance, keeping you covered but allowing your skin to shine through. For those of us that like to keep our arms covered, but don’t want to fuss with a jacket or wear a heavy sleeve, lace meets us in the middle keeping us and our look breathable and beautiful. I can’t express enough how much I love this lace mother of the bride dress by VM Mori Lee. On one hand, there is a lot going on here, with a v-neck front and v-back, a wide ruched waistband, a layered skirt, a lace top and sleeves, and a beaded brooch. On the other hand, it couldn’t come together more elegantly or flawlessly. When the design is right, you can have it all, in sizes 2 – 26.

Mar 13, 2014

Many mothers spend so much time helping their daughters find their dream wedding dress that they forget they too will need something special for the occasion! Unfortunately, many bridal shops who offer mother of the bride dresses bring the same tired styles year after year. The bride should always take center stage at her wedding, and there’s no question that her gown is the most important of the day, but that doesn’t mean that the most special woman in her life shouldn’t look her beautiful best as well.

At Dimitra Designs, we offer mother of the bride dresses that are elegant, flattering, and fitting of such a momentous occasion. Unlike many of the dated designs you’ll find elsewhere, ours are fashionably modern and ready to shine in photographs and on the dance floor! This month we will be bringing the spotlight to some of our favorite mother of the bride and mother of the groom dresses, starting with these two…

Lady in Red: This stunning dress from Montage by Mon Cheri is for lovely ladies who aren’t afraid to shine! The removable bolero jacket is perfect for slipping on when the wind or air conditioning kicks up, and also adds a level of modesty that doesn’t interfere with the flattering, feminine lines. A two-piece fashioned from silk shantung, the brooch adds a touch of sparkle that draws the eye in at the gathered waist. Slimming and sophisticated, this mother of the bride dress is one to say ‘yes’ to!

Radiant in Ruffles: Allover ruching makes this VM Mori Lee mother of the bride dress sensationally flattering, but the true star of the show is the elaborate, artistic, oversized ruffles. A chic mermaid style that is fitted to follow your every curve, this grand gown is bursting with a bold and beautiful ruffle detail front and back. Elegant and enchanting was never so exciting!
