hi there ladies! can i just check with you where do you get the outfits for your moms from? especially if the mother is more conservative and don't like too fanciful or bling bling outfits as most dinner wear is likely to be. any ideas? thanks!

Hi geraldine, my mum went to custom her own dress, according to her own preferences of design and color and length! she's very picky too, such as cannot tube, cannot spaghetti strap (which means 99% of evening gowns cannot buy ler), cannot too short, cannot look too skinny/fat/ reveal ugly figure etc... so the customizing suited her best! it's a shop called lady xiang, at 313. the 2 dresses my mum made are GORGEOUS! she wore it to my sis' wedding and all the guests were so attracted to the dress, all potential bride/grooms' mothers all asked for the contact! hahaha

I have this problem too. My MIL is skinny type. She no problem lah. But my own mother is chubby type. Rather difficult tho.

princess crystal: the costs of the dresses varied quite a bit, depending on the length / material / design..

hmm...i think if choose expensive material will end up paying more ba...i think on average, those off the racks type from shops already costs like $100 at least..?
