Finally, a Giveaway for Moms!

Some of you may have heard me mention this before, but finding dresses for our moms has been one of the bigger challenges for our August wedding. Grant's mom looked and looked and looked, and then right about the time she decided she might just have to wear whatever she could find, she found 2 dresses in one day! And, she looks beautiful in them both. Grant and I were sitting on the couch with his dad when she walked out to show them off and all three of our jaws dropped. I'm so excited for her.

My mom, on the other hand, hasn't been able to do much looking. We send e-mails back and forth about things we've found or flip through a catalog on either end of a telephone, but she hasn't spent as much time in stores as she needs to. See, she's her father's full-time care-giver. And, until a few months ago was taking care of my grandmother as well, when she started needing more help than my family could give her. So, she rarely gets a chance to leave the house.

So, this morning when I saw that Fab Over Fifty was hosting a style makeover for the Mother of the Bride or the Mother of the Groom I was really excited (and I even entered my mom to win!) One Fab Over Fifty Mom will win a private style consultation and a dress for the wedding, both from Kay Unger!

Tell us, what dresses have you seen moms and grandmothers wear to a wedding that really made them shine? Show us what dresses you've found that would be perfect from every wedding from a more casual to formal! We can't wait to see what wonderful dresses we discover along the way. And, what places would you suggest for people to be looking? We can't wait to compile all the suggestions and do a follow-up post!
