    Beautiful family! Love the wedding locale and decorations. Your dress choice was also my favorite of the three. Congratulations! I agree…It IS nice to have another woman in a family of men. Happy Mother’s Day!

    • Carolyn says:

      Congratulations! I love all my daughters-in-law and my gifts have gotten much better since there are girls on the scene. Your boys are all gorgeous. The only thing that would have made this post sweeter is if you had included a picture of your family when the boys were young. Family is everything. Best wishes. You have modeled a long and happy marriage.

    Your dress was perfect! I also liked the one with the champagne in front of your home fireplace. I
    Happy Mothers Day to you.

  9. Peggy McCloskey says:

    tough choice between the cobalt blue and the dress you wore–but if you didn’t keep the cobalt blue dress (the one with you in front of the fire place and holding a champagne coupe) you should go back and get it!

    What a beautiful place to hold an outdoor wedding! Everyone looked lovely. Your dress Beth, was perfect for the Mother of the Groom. A very happy occasion, celebrating with family and friends. Congratulations to the happy couple and happy Mother’s day to you as well Beth. Love your posts, although up her in Canada our weather isn’t as conducive to some of the clothes shown when they are shown. We’re still wearing jackets and sweaters when you are in shorts. Nevertheless still enjoy seeing them.

    • Terri says:

      So funny that 2 of those are also on my shortlist! We have the same color scheme, and loved the BHOLDN lace dress!

  11. Julie Mycock says:

    Hi Beth, you look absolutely stunning in all the outfits. The Wedding venue looks amazing and I know both you and Mr Style will have had a tear in your eye at such a proud moment.

  14. DIANE McLean says:

    Loved your dress choices, Beth. You looked amazing. Of course, the bride and groom outshone you a little as that is the way it should be. Congratulations to you all on your expanded family.

  15. Janice says:

    All three dresses were beautiful, but my favorite is the one you wore! Beautiful setting for a wedding. Congratulations on your new “daughter” !

    Beautiful dresses, beautiful setting, cake looks so cool and I bet yummy. What a perfect day and a wonderful couple and family. So sweet of you to share. My girlfriends family had a rustic wedding, too and it was so much fun and beautiful.

  30. Congratulations to all on such a beautiful day. I have been Mother of the Bride twice …at my two daughters’ weddings and know how special those occasions are!
    Love your dress choices.

  31. Barb says:

    I agree that the dress you chose is beautiful. You also need to keep the cobalt for a night out!

  32. I love the dress you chose. I’m so happy for you and your family, what a beautiful wedding. Happy Mother’s Day!

  33. Mary Sue Wiggins says:

    You are lovely in all three, but I have to disagree. The blue one with the asymmetrical neckline was the best. It brings the eyes upward to your face and has energy. The navy was uniboob. The mint green dress was too matronly.

  34. Joanie says:

    Hi Beth
    Happy Mother’s Day! Thanks for sharing your special occasion. I like the dress you chose the best, although all three are lovely. What a handsome family!

  35. Susan Vilardo says:

    Beautiful family, wonderful memory…gorgeous dresses..That cobalt blue was beyond fabulous on you!

  36. Chris Volante says:

    Congratulations Beth, what handsome sons you have. Love the dress so floaty and romantic. Amazingly beautiful place to hold a wedding, the day must have been a dream. Best wishes from Australia.
    Ps I have the same problem having opposite seasons to you guys,what to wear but still love your style.

  37. Diane says:

    Such a beautiful family!!

  38. Carol says:

    Thank you for sharing your beautiful day. Love all the dresses, and loved the one you chose.
    You are an inspiration!

  39. Caralie G. says:

    Welcome to Oregon! Glad the weather cooperated for you. I’m from Eugene and know exactly where your son got married. My son also had a destination wedding. We went to the Dominican Republic June 2018. It was a lovely beach setting. Blessing to the new couple and Happy Mother’s Day to you!

  40. Jeanne says:

    All three dresses look fabulous and I hope you bought all of them. I love Halsbrook and the way they put outfits together.

    On another note I’m wondering why you don’t capitalize the beginning of each sentence. It would make reading your posts much more enjoyable.

  41. Linda says:

    Love them all! Considering the setting I think your choice was perfect! Thank you for sharing such a special day!

  42. Jo-Anne says:

    Beth, you looked absolutely stunning in the cobalt blue dress. Cobalt blue is one of my favourite colours. All the dresses were beautiful, but the cobalt blue was my favourite.
    It looked to be a wonderful wedding, congratulations!


    Love your style specially this lovely family event! Congratulations and blessings!

  44. Gray says:

    I love the dress you picked! You are so lucky to have those three beautiful sons. Congratulations!

  45. Gray says:

    Beth, how do you source the small images of dresses? When I click on them, it doesn’t take me to the site, it just wants to add them to a pinterest board. Thanks!

    • Beth Djalali says:

      if you hover over the item at the bottom instead of the middle or top it should take you to the site. if you see the red Pinterest button then you need to slide your mouse further down. hope this helps! xo

      • Gray says:

        YES! Thank you for your reply. I need a wedding guest dress and am having a terrible time. I was just clicking on the images too high up! Gotcha.

      • Gray says:

        PS – I am getting the classic black one shoulder jumpsuit for future weddings. You can’t go wrong. Thank you so much for the post.

  46. Gwen Ewing says:

    I absolutely love the dress you wore! It was so feminine and flattering. Perfect choice for the wedding. What a beautiful family you have and a lovely new daughter in law! Congratulations!
