Featured Mother of the Bride/Groom Dress: Daymor 1783

Meet: Daymor 1783

There is so much to love about this gown, it’s hard to narrow it down. This lightweight mikado, off the shoulder gown is eye-catching not only for its flattering fit and flare silhouette but it takes a modern twist with the asymmetrical pleated design detail culminating in a bow at the waist.

This gown embodies sleek sophistication and a timelessness for the Mom who doesn’t want to be overembellished, relegated to a traditional mother’s gown or suffer the latest fad fashion trends that will date your photos.

Daymor 1783 Details

We so often hear from our Moms that they don’t want a “traditional” mother’s dress which I translate to mean that they want to avoid matronly and cookie-cutter dresses. We’ve all seen those gowns…chiffon skirts, drop waists and some kind of embellishment on the bodice. Pretty, yet unremarkable.

This piece from Daymor breaks the mold and offers a polished tailored dress without sacrificing style. The mikado fabric is so lightweight and comfortable that you can easily make it through a twelve-hour event with ease. Off the shoulder gowns have been a staple of special occasions and mother’s dresses because they highlight graceful necklines and shoulders, but this gown takes it to another level by offering an uncommon design element of asymmetrical pleats and a modest applique of silver bugle beads.

The curved pleats and bow detail give the illusion of an elongated silhouette which is always a bonus especially for those who are petite. And, although the back of the gown is simple, the small sweep train adds the tiniest smidge of flair. For those who prefer a less complicated finish, the sweep train can be cut away by a seamstress with very little effort.

Another added bonus of this dress is the vibrant color choices available for special order. Daymor cuts this gown in Delphi Blue (featured sample); Champagne; Silver/Taupe; Periwinkle; Navy; Lilac; Fuschia; Plum; Soft Pink and Black. No matter the color gown you choose, silver accessories would perfectly match this gown due to the small silver beaded applique. Strappy silver shoes and a small silver beaded clutch will complete your entire ensemble. And although the unique neckline will look amazing regardless of hairstyle, it feels right to picture it paired with a sleek French Twist.

Not wanting to over accessorize the look of this piece would have us forgo any type of necklace and instead choose a larger earring to complete the look.
