Here I am again.....searching for another Mother-of-the-Bride dress.....

and I'm having a terrible time finding anything I like. The wedding is a little over a month away, and is outdoors at an overlook in a State Park--a breathtaking view of the fall foilage.

The wedding colors are black and ivory, and all the flowers are big, red roses. I would love to wear a dress in the same red as the roses. I've looked at Nordstroms, Macy's, David's Bridal....even JC Penney's. I haven't made it to Dillards yet, but I did look at their online selection. I'm hoping they'll have something in their brick and mortar store.

Anybody have any other suggestions of places to look?

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass.....it's about learning to dance in the rain.

If you're near Charlotte, you might try Group USA or Off Fifth Avenue at Concord Mills Mall. Also, the consignment shops in Dilworth, Myers Park, etc. have some gorgeous things.

Also, with the wedding a month away, you're got time to find the perfect fabric (try Joanne's in Gastonia) and have a dress made by a local seamstress.

Good luck!

I'm guessing it's a daytime wedding because it's outdoors at a park, so maybe it's a little more casual? Would a suit work? You can find beautiful wool crepe suits in rich fall colors. If you want something dressy but not too over the top, J. Crew has bridal now and quite a few nice dresses. Here's one in red:

Do you have access to Dillards? OR shop online at Dillards? I got a beautiful dress for my son's wedding there- I had looked EVERYWHERE- It was a simple with a beautiful jacket with beads- we went with short dresses.

I have the victor costa 100% silk red jacket. It would be pretty over a black dress for a fall wedding. It is now on sale for about 40.00. Item number a93083 -really beautiful but not many sizes to chose from.

This is a beautiful special occasion dress in cranberry, it would be lovely for a wedding.It is online at Damons and Drapers:
