INSIDE RELATIONSHIPS Mother of the groom Article By: Jennifer Gruden You may know the saying, "the mother of the groom is only supposed to show up, shut up, and wear beige," but is that really true? The traditional advice for the mother of the groom is – forgive the language – to “show up, shut up, and wear beige.” While there's some good food for thought in that little adage, the truth is that you are embarking on a whole new relationship with your soon to be daughter-in-law. Here's how to make the most of the wedding to create a long-lasting relationship (the article continues, but not on this blog at this time!) It is going to be different this time around to have child #2 - a son - getting married and I am very much looking forward to being a MOG. Been there, done that in being a MOB. So, here's my burning question for the day: Would this be an appropriate beige dress? The dress was found in the Chicago Chic exhibit at the Chicago History Museum. It was designed by Worth and Boberg in 1861 and worn by a certain Mrs. McCormick. Only a few alterations would need to be made. And it is a lovely beige! So? What do you think?
