Tall Mother of the Groom Dresses

I was contacted for help in finding a tall mother of the groom dress. I can certainly relate to how hard this is to find as I am in the same predicament. My own son is getting married right after Christmas and I’m frantically on the hunt for the same thing. Although the colors requested for this tall personal shopping request are similar, they are not the same. But, hey, what’s your tall best friend to do? I dropped everything today to help this special tall woman out.

Some of the items below are in tall sizes. As we all know, you may need to order a few options and in different sizes and send back what doesn’t work. Unfortunately, that is the reality. Also, I have added some custom made dresses and surprisingly the prices are pretty good. Just make sure you follow instructions on how to add the custom sizing.

The best advice I was given lately from a stylish woman I trust was that the mother of the groom dress should blend with the colors, but doesn’t have to match exactly. That is the freedom I needed to give me more options.

I present the choices for your shopping pleasure:

Tall Dresses for a Hot Night Out

Do you ever have that moment of panic when you realize you don’t have anything to wear so a specific event?  This happened to me last week when we decided to go out to a nice dinner with some friends.  I initially wasn’t planning to get too gussied up but then my friend mentioned that she was going to wear a black cocktail dress. Yikes!  I knew I would need to dress up a bit more than originally planned.  To make things just a bit more fun, it was a very hot day with highs in the 90s.  I knew I would need to choose my outfit wisely so that I was comfortable during dinner.

As I was looking through my closet, I noticed that I have a lot of dresses that are suitable for daytime wear and the fabrics of my fancier dresses are not suitable for hot summer nights.  This caused me to go in search of the perfect tall “night-out” dress for summer.  Here are a few of my finds:

For a night out, you can never go wrong with a little black dress.  If you happen to glisten (translation: sweat) a bit in the heat, black fabric will always help disguise that.  Speaking of fabric, this tall fit-and-flare dress is 60% cotton so it should be somewhat breathable and the flowy bottom of the dress will also help keep you cool.  The cap sleeves and split neck are an elegant touch but best of all the dress is currently on sale!

During warmer months, I find it fun to infuse some bold colors into my night-out repertoire.  This dress comes in yellow, blue, orange and black.  I think black and orange would be more suitable for a night-out, while the yellow and blue would work better for daytime.  Pair the dress with a chunky necklace and some killer heels to up the glam factor.

The thought of customizing a dress definitely appeals to me, and eShakti has several dresses in hot-weather friendly cotton fabric. You can either order the standard size or you can input your measurements for a custom size.  You can further customize the dress by playing with the sleeve type and the length of the skirt. The bright pattern of this dress and the figure-flattering fit is sure to turn heads!
