Mother's Monday

Starting today, Formally Yours is committing to more frequent blogging.  We are celebrating our 30th Anniversary this month and realize that we have so much to offer our customers.  In addition to offering beautiful wedding dresses, bridesmaids dresses, flower girl dresses and mother's dresses, we can offer sound advice based on our years of experience.   And today, and every monday, we want to offer some advice to our beautiful, generous and loving mothers of both the bride and groom.

Often times, woman seem to put themselves last.  They are so busy planning the wedding and taking care of everyone else's needs that they leave their need of the Mother of the Bride (MOB) or Mother of the Groom (MOG) dress until the very end as if they don't matter.  However, the reality is quite the opposite.  The MOB and MOG are very important to the entire wedding and wedding party, and they need to dress the part.  While the MOB is the main hostess at the reception and responsible for making certain everyone's accomodated, the MOG is important too.  Both women are required to join people together at the joyous occasion and to be photographed along the way. 

It can be an overwhelming experience if allowed, but shopping at Formally Yours for your mother's dress can be enjoyable.  First, we ask the specifics of the wedding.  Time, location and number of guests are very important facts to note when determining a style.  Second, we ask the color pallete of the wedding. And, we also like to ask if the mother has a favorite color she likes to wear.  Next, we ask if the dress is supposed to be long or short.  Once we gather all of this information, we begin to pull different styles for each mother to try on.  Third, the mother begins to model each design. 

The process is in full swing, and now it is time to begin eliminating some styles and to revisit others.  After the final decision of style and color is made, measurements are taken and a size is agreed upon. When a mother looks beautiful and feels comfortable, then the choice is clear.  Do not be afraid to confirm your decision and to "say yes to the dress".  Check this off of the list of things to do, and purchase your mother's dress. Formally Yours immediately places the order and it takes at least 3 MONTHS, yes 3 months for the dress to come in.  Thus, the importance of ordering sooner than later!

So, do not delay, start your search today!  And come to Formally Yours where we will welcome you and listen to you and take very good care of you and your fashion needs.  We look forward to seeing you soon.
