Helloooo, my dah-ling BABs! This week we are helping one of our Real Brides, Jubilance, find her mother a dress and she has her eye on two designers: Watters and Adrianna Papell. We’ve had a couple of Watters requests lately and but Adrianna Papell is a new one. I’m so excited about it, too! Adrianna Papell is a fantastic brand. They’ve been around for 30 years. They make gorrrgeous gowns that are AFFORDABLE (see our Wedding Dresses under $1K Pinterest board). They also have an awesome collection for plus-size gals out there. I think more brands need to embrace their plus-size audience because, um, we’re out here, too, and we want pretty clothes!! All of them, in fact. So, here is what Jubilance had to say:
“My mom is looking for a nice gown that is ‘mother appropriate’ but not old lady. I’ve banned her from wearing anything with a jacket. She actually really loves this Watters & Watters gown but at $465 she can’t afford it — It’s the Watters Coriander Dress Style 3218. She also really likes this Adrianna Papell gown but the $300 price is more than she wanted to pay.”
So, Jubilance is looking for a rad MOB dress in a petite size 14 for $200 or less. I totally get the jacket thing, by the way. My Mom would never wear one of those types of Mother of the Bride dresses and with so many options, why should you? Most of these are available in petite but if not, you won’t have to pay too much to get it hemmed.

I didn’t realize petite was so hard to come by! I would definitely recommend looking more into these websites because they have a ton of options and something else might catch your eye. I really hope this helps! Also, I’m curious to know what YOU’RE wearing, Jubilance?! Let us know if we can help. Until next week, BABs …
