Ask Anna: Mother of The Bride

Every week, we receive many emails with interesting questions and concerns from our GMD customers. For this particular post, we decided to round up this week’s most popular questions with personalized answers from our CEO, Anna Bance, in order to make your renting experience a more enjoyable one, and so you don’t find yourself dressless for this summer’s most glamorous occasions.

 

My beautiful daughter is getting married this September and I am having trouble finding something to wear. I would like to look attractive, but since I have quite large breasts I need to find a style that is flattering and not too revealing. Could you recommend me a dress?

This is a familiar problem and we completely understand your desires to want to look respectful and beautiful, as it will be as much your day as it will be your daughters! A common mistake for the mother of the bride is to dress either too young, or too old, when really there is no option more suited to the occasion than classic, timeless elegance. Keep an open mind however, as now is the time to wear something out of the ordinary.

My first suggestion for you would be this stunning satin dress by Erdem, which balances a youthful, feminine print with a flattering high neck line and long sleeves.

Alternatively, this dress, from our go to designer Diane Von Fustenburg’s, who always has something flattering and chic no matter your size or age. This black and white silk blend dress will take you seamlessly from day-to-night and would look fantastic with a trench coat.

Lastly, for something a little less traditional, how about trying this comfortably long dress in sensational coral red, wonderful for enhancing honey color skin tones. Match this dress with gold or coral jewelery to complete the look.

p.s Remember that we also stock hats to rent for the big day, and if you need help matching your dress to the perfect style we are always on hand to help thegirls@girlmeetsdress.com

London Fashion Week – Day 4: Burberry and Todd Lynn Dresses

Erdem, Burberry Prorsum and Todd Lynn were all on the fashionable circuit yesterday for day 4 of London Fashion Week. Erdem continued the ladylike elegance seen at Issa and Jonathan Saunders, with beautiful dresses as always. At Burberry, Christopher Bailey predicts another dreary summer for 2012 – his SS12 collection revolved around a particularly autumnal colour palette, with navy, plum, mustard and forest green featuring heavily. Todd Lynn’s SS12 collection is slightly more summery in colour (metallics and whites with the odd bit of navy) and the dresses seem to be constructed from layers, cut-outs and sheer panels, making for an interesting and contemporary look.
