Miss. B. Perfect-Affairs,

Not sure what to do here… I have found “the one”. A beautiful slim fitting gown with a halter neckline and short train. This gown is perfect for my beach wedding this summer. One problem… My mother does not approve. She thinks I should have the typical “princess ballgown” style . My fiance and I are paying for the wedding and this gown also fits our tight budget. How can I get my dream dress and my mothers approval?

Sincerely,

Dear Seeking-mothers-approval,

Your situation is not an easy one. Invite your mother to lunch or set up a time to visit with her. Make sure she understands your concern for her feelings about your gown. Explain to her that although a ballgown may be perfect for some brides, for you- this gown is perfect. It fits your wedding day vision, your style, and your budget. Communicate in a positive way to her that you truly want her approval on your wedding day style. After all, it’s your big day and you want to feel incredible.

Sincerely,

Miss. B. Perfect-Affairs
