Wedding Dress: David Tutera for Mon Cheri

Who knew Mother of the Bride dress shopping could be as much fun as shopping for the brides dress?! That is exactly the feel and environment T.Carolyn Fashions presents you with as soon as you walk into their beautiful boutique here in Spring, Texas. Tucked in amongst the other fabulous shops of Vintage Park, I was so glad we chose this location for my mom to find her dress. It’s a wonderfully welcoming boutique and you can feel the excitement just walking in the door. We were instantly greeted by their floor manager, and our consultant Lena. She quickly got all the specifications from my mom, and we were off to look through the dresses. Lena was so knowledgeable and knew exactly what I meant when I said, “No frumpy dresses. She’s walking me down the aisle!”
I desperately want my Mom to feel as amazing and beautiful on my day as I do. Of course she does not want a single eye on her, but I do. It is absolutely true what she has been telling me for years, “Try it on, it may look better on you then it does on the hanger.” The most important requirement was she wanted sleeves. So we stuck with that idea. I spotted this dress that was a beautiful teal with some sequins, but not too many on the top. We added it to the stack and off she went to try them on. Lena helped my Mom in and out of the gowns, giving us pointers on what worked best and what maybe not so much. She truly made my Mom feel like a beautiful queen, secure in her own body and ready to own the world.
Honestly, my mother looked beautiful in everything she tried on, and it was such a special moment for her. I am so glad she got her “Say Yes” moment, and the dress she picked is perfect. The bridesmaid dress even made an appearance to make sure colors didn’t clash. It was a wonderful experience at T.Carolyn Fashions, Terrie, the owner, was very helpful and nice as well. Thank you so much Lena and Terrie for giving my Mom her special moment and helping her to find that perfect dress for my special day.
