Happy Hump Day, gang! Welcome to the second week of Mother of the Groom dresses. Many of you know one of my kiddos is getting hitched NYE. Yours truly is on the hunt for a Mother of the Groom dress. Last week, I shared my backup dress that I purchased months ago, knowing it could and would work if I didn’t find anything else to my liking. It’s always good to have a plan B at the ready.

The dress I’m wearing today for my second MOG option is from the Rene Ruiz Collection available at Saks Fifth Avenue. Saks carries a vast selection of dresses for the Mother of the Bride or Groom. If you’re shopping for either, look at Mac Duggal, Kay Unger, or Aidan Mattox. All designers have a variety of options when it comes to the big day.
The Mother of the Bride is wearing a floor-length hunter-green gown, and I’ve kept that in mind with each of the dresses that made the final cut as well as how it will look in photographs with the other bridal party members. Yes, a color scheme is of utmost importance at weddings.
Couture dresses are lovely and always have that little extra detail that sets them apart. This particular dress reminds me of a Monet painting with a subtle floral design and layers of tulle. It has a built-in corset, so no need to worry about a strapless bra. Movement is a breeze in this dress, and I know it will easily hit the dance floor with movement. My accessories (crystal earrings, crystal slingbacks, crystal clutch) are the same as last week, with the addition of a simple necklace. The dress takes center stage, so the accessories are minimal in comparison.
Stay tuned to next week when I share my absolute favorite MOG dress unless I find one this Friday when I hit the pavement in Atlanta.
