  1. Your article profiling John Charles outfits for mother of the bride is great – providing, of course, you are a svelte looking mother of the bride!. My mum is beautiful but would not be able to wear any of those outfits. Do you have any suggestions for ladies who are equally beautiful but with a realistic figure of a woman who has born two children and is in the last flush if her 60s rather than the first flush of 50? Any help for fun and quirky yet with an air of sophistication and elegance would be great fully received – or are those outfits reserved for size 12 and under?



  2. I recently bought my mother of the bride outfit dress from John Charles. I visited their retail outlet in Brierley Hill, West Midlands in October. I liked the dress and loved it so much and to further decide about the final purchase; I thought to bring my husband along with me the next time.

    Today we went to the outlet; I asked the sales person to bring me that dress so it was not so much job for her to do. I tried the dress and my husband absolutely loved it. The dress has shades of purple with golden lace and decent hat which suits my face. I ordered for alterations which they were saying would be a quick process.
    The price of the dress is high but after I chose the best piece with a lot of embellishments and also because it is a unique design.
    I would definitely recommend John Charles mainly because they have got exceptional designs which for some reason are made while keeping the mother of the brides and her overall personality.
