Mother of the groom dress

The worst thing ever has happened. The mother of the bride did not go with the custom made dress and she went and bought a dress at Nordstrom. That is where I am going to buy a dress. I kinda have mine picked out online and I am going to buy the dress soon.

What if she bought my dress. I know, you are saying what is the chance of that. Well, here is a story for ya.

Back in the day my grandmother was dating/living with a guy, an old friend of the family. My grandpa died and gramma found a friend who longed to be closer and she agreed. The only problem was, I think he was married. Whatever. Anyway his daughter was getting married and my family was invited and we all had to go as a show of support for grandma. Maybe he was divorced then, or close to it.

My grandma found this dress to wear to the wedding, it was a blue sheath type-floor length number with a chiffon over-lay caftan type thing. It was airy and the caftan thing kind of flowed with impressionist colors of blue and green over white. This was not a wallflower dress.

Guess who wore the same damn dress. Yes, the ex-wife mother of the bride. It was something to behold.


  1. You would not have to worry about me, as I have neVer had that kind of dress.
