Mother of the Groom Dress Series, Part One

  1. Carlynn says:

    Beth, what a beautiful outfit and you look lovely.
    Looking forward to your next outfit, sounds like you like the next one better.

  2. Gail Duer says:

    I agree with your assessment, this is a gorgeous outfit, looks lovely on you, but I think you can do even better. Looking forward to the next choice!

    • Beth Djalali says:

      The next two dresses are spectacular! And I’m going shopping in Atlanta next week with one of my besties so who knows what I’ll find in person!
      Stay tuned!

  3. Kim Berry says:

    You look fabulous in the gold attire! Would go nicely with the bride’s mom’s green.

  4. Julie Weick says:

    The dress is pretty but I am not a big fan of off the shoulder. I do like the shoes and bag but I think you can do better. It’s ok but the bare right arm is not too flattering. Pretty dress but keep looking.

  5. Kerry says:

    I love the dress, it is very elegant. I am not sure the color is the best suited for you, I like you in bright rich tones that show off your glorious hair color!

    Can’t wait to see what is next!

  6. Linda Robus says:

    You look stunning. Can’t wait to see the first choice.

  7. Susan says:

    You look fabulous! (I think even better than the model on Anthropologie’s website!) If this is your back-up dress I can’t wait to see the other choices. And, congratulations on the upcoming wedding.

  8. Gayle says:

    Dear Beth, the dress and accessories are lovely, but I don’t think it does you justice. I think it makes you seem pale and washed out, and that is so not you! I’m looking forward to next week’s offering. Congratulations by the way to you and your son and soon-to-be new daughter-in-law.

    • Beth Djalali says:

      Isn’t it funny that one person thinks I look washed out and another thinks I look fabulous. Beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder.
      Thanks for stopping by. We are thrilled to add another member to the Djalali family!

  10. Mary Lou says:

    I find satin or satin like materials are less forgiving and need extra attention to the support wear :). However, you have that covered! ( no pun). Have fun picking out a wonderful dress!

    • Beth Djalali says:

      It has been so much fun shopping the MOG dress. I’m headed to Atlanta next week for a shopping spree with one of my besties so I might have four dresses to share instead of three.

  11. I don’t even have to see the next dress, though I will want to see it lol. This is such a classy dress and you look classy in it and the accessories are spot on. This is the dress unless you can wow me with something spectacular! I don’t even mind that it is one shoulder. Looks great on you!

  12. Gail says:

    Elegant dress but I think it’s too long. You want to be able to put the dress on and forget about it, not be looking down when you walk in case you trip on the hem.

    • Beth Djalali says:

      All the dresses I’m sharing in the MOG series are off the rack. No alterations have been made until final selections with dress, shoes, etc…
      I have the best tailor so I’m in good hands.

  13. Maeve says:

    Gold dress, red wine – I know how this would end up if it were I.

    • Beth Djalali says:

      Always looking on the bright side, Maeve. I’m more of a glass half full girl, especially if it’s red wine!

      • Maeve says:

        It’s important to know one’s limitations: never in all my myriad business lunches did I order a dish with tomato sauce. It’s a question of aptitude not attitude.

  14. Debra says:

    Beth, I will be looking for a MOB dress for next June and dresses are not my friend! What are your top three recommendations for places to look? My style – classic.

  15. Jo says:

    The dress is beautiful and congratulations on the upcoming wedding.
    With sleeveless dress(es) are you also including a wrap? It seems that between winter weather and too cold ac, there can always be a chill.

  16. Nancy B. says:

    Beth, I love this champagne colored dress on you! You look so elegant! I look forward to your other choices, however, you are stunning in it.

  17. Lisa says:

    Beth you look gorgeous as always and love your hair! Congratulations on your sons upcoming wedding! How fun! 😊❤️

  18. Elisa says:

    Beautiful dress, shoes and bag. Fits you well, you look very elegant, and shows your fantastic figure, but the color does not seem right for you—makes you look pale, and mother-of-the groom must look radiant. I have the same problem with that color.

  19. Carolina Girl says:

    Beautiful, Beth! But I can’t wait to see the other choices as well … this is like the “Barbie Movie” post you did a few months ago.
    Please tell us what you ended up wearing to that …

    And will look forward to your other MOTG dress selections!

  20. Mary Siteman says:

    You look absolutely stunning and wear this dress well!
    Everyone should look so good!
    Although, still looking forward to the ones to come.
    Keep having fun getting ready for the big event!

  21. Rebecca L. says:

    This is a timely subject for me Beth, thank you for taking up this topic. My son is getting married next September in Ireland so I’m looking for tea length, with some type of sleeve and a ‘fascinator’. My figure is not as good as yours so camouflage will be in the back of my mind. 😉☘️

  22. Charlotte says:

    You do look beautiful! The dress shows your great figure in a classy way. I do agree you could find a better color for your skin tone. Are you a winter? I think you need a richer color or silver to show off your lovely blue eyes and silver hair.

  23. Lindsey A says:

    Well if this is the backup dress I’m excited to see the others because you look sensational in it!

    Also have to say how nice it is that you and MOB are coordinating your outfits, because that sounds like the two of you get along well. My late mam never particularly cared for my late MIL, which wasn’t such a big deal because they lived on different continents, but I definitely hope that if/when my daughter gets married, I gain a new friend in her MIL!

    • Beth Djalali says:

      I do like the mother of the bride! We love to include her and her husband to our family get-together’s. And we do need to coordinate our dresses for the photo session.

  24. Deborah Burnett says:

    You look lovely in this stunning gold dress!

  25. Lori says:

    I think you look ma-vel-ous!!!!

  26. Karen S says:

    It’s a beautiful dress but the color is too similar to a wedding dress and u might compete with the bride. Also, a different color would be more flattering with your hair color.

  27. Deanna says:

    Stunning choice for a NYE wedding! You look very elegant. If the next two or more are even more stunning, I can’t even imagine them. Enjoy all the excitement leading up to the wedding. Congratulations to all!

  28. Pat C says:

    I think you put this outfit together beautifully but my first thought was you look so spectacular in brighter colors. Like the red dress you featured a few months back. Can wait to see your other options.

  29. Phyllisa says:

    Hi Beth. You have received a lot of comments, some of
    which you may find useful. It is very brave of you to ask
    for suggestions. You do look lovely in the dress, but my
    suggestion is to go slightly brighter in color. And a famous designer once said when you are ready to go out, check your look in the mirror. Unless you are wearing two pieces or less of accessories, take something off. I think the watch. No matter what you wear, enjoy all the wedding fun. Phyllisa

  30. Linda says:

    Beth, this dress is absolutely amazing for (a) A NEW YEAR’s eve wedding (festive/gold) and (b) to coordinate with the others in the wedding party/MOB. You look beautiful in that color! It seems to soften you and you look luminous in it. Beautiful dress!!! I don’t know how you can possibly do better but we shall see in the next posts!

  31. Nancy says:

    First impression; stunning! On further “inspection,” I don’t think this is your color. It seems to wash you out and doesn’t compliment your hair color, imo. Can’t wait to see what else you are trying on!

  32. Melinda Silby says:

    Overall it’s a lovely MOG emsemble, but my gut says I like the accessories better then the dress! It will be fun to see your other choices.
