"My Mom Is Romantic"
According to bride Judith, her mom, Katherine, was set on wearing a knee-length dress, and had designer Selia Yang create this blue-gray silk number for the wedding. Soft colors and short hemlines are ideal for outdoor summer weddings; and we think the lace overlay makes the design feel more youthful and a little fancier. (Also note how it grazes the knee—so tasteful.)
Memo to Mom: If the dress is short, eye-catching shoes are a must. And choose a lightweight wrap or cardigan as a warm-weather cover-up.Photo: Gertrude & Mabel Photography
