...both families are in full preparations for the June 1st wedding...compared to the 1960's when our own wedding took place, it is sure a different world out there. Being the Mother of the Groom has led me down a path of discovery and revelations! Since everything from the rehearsal dinner to the actual ceremony & reception is being held at Taylorsoutback, we have been thoroughly involved with much of the planning and everyone is on the same page!
Tent set up, chairs, tables, porta-potties (living in the country with holding tanks is not large gatherings-friendly), catering and supplies, linens, flowers - the list is long. This is definitely a Team project. Throw in the fact that our Dave and Jena are thousands of miles away in Alaska - thank goodness for Face Time, emails and digital photography!
The latest decision is looking at dozens of possible outfits - what to wear? I have always tended towards low key, understated clothing & buy and wear what is purchased until it wears out. You won't find one dress in my closet...lots of corduroys, sweaters and even a flannel shirt or two. That fits our retirement style of living. Put me outside in nice weather and off I go to the garden in jeans or shorts and a floppy straw hat. Things are very casual around here....
Imagine my amazement when coming upon these two little numbers while Googling Mother of the Groom dresses
What do you think?
One - no way could I walk in something like that and two, the cleavage alone would make me faint. Three? I would need a bowl of fruit to wear on my head a la Carmen Miranda. What were these designers thinking?
Cha, cha, cha...
Speaking of what to wear on one's head...after showing this hat to our son - who still has not recovered, I have decided to go hatless.
Again, what was the designer and Princess Beatrice drinking, I mean thinking?????
Yesterday I went shopping for an outfit but came home with a new wallet & 3 pairs of socks - beige - keeping in mind the old adage - a MOG wears beige and remains quiet...and so the search continues.
My apologies if I have not responded to your comments - life is a little crazy these days. I will try to do better. Have a good weekend dear readers - and so happy you dropped by to visit.
