What drew you to the Melinda Dress?
The Melinda was very different from anything that I had envisioned myself wearing, but I decided to give it a try and ordered. When it arrived, I thought it was beautiful. It felt so good on, I knew immediately that I had found the one!

Tell us about the wedding party colors.
The groom was in navy and bridesmaids wore light champagne dresses; the flowers were neutral with a blush garden rose accent.

Describe how you felt in the dress.
The Melinda Dress was very comfortable and fit like a glove! (I did have it shortened slightly for length.) It was perfect for the lakeside ceremony, yet elegant enough for the county club reception. I accessorized with crystal/pearl drop earrings and a pearl bracelet.

What advice do you have for mothers of the bride who are currently in the planning process?
My advice to a MOB searching for a dress would be to try on dresses that you envision yourself in and ones you don’t see yourself in—the unexpected may end up being the perfect dress. I struggled with all the dresses I thought I would wear and ended up with one I never would have expected!
