    Feminine, confident and sexy are my dressing goals for my daughter, Amanda’s, October 2010 wedding. My greatest stresses have not been from my calm, wonderfully supportive daughter, but rather the challenges I face finding a dress as the honored Mother-of-the-bride! I fought and beat cancer on more than one occasion, which has left me with dressing challenges that make me feel self conscious and insecure. Amanda has been through so much with me being ill and worrying about dressing her mother for her wedding is one that I wish she not be burdened. Recently, I was looking through a celebrity magazine and saw the dress of my dreams! It was a Kay Unger, sexy, gold satin vision that took my breath away! What made it even more perfect was the way the draping would cover my damaged areas and accentuate my “better” features. It would be a dream come true to be properly fitted and dressed by Kay Unger for Amanda’s big day. Then all I would have to worry about, would be the uncontrollable tears of joy rolling down my face as I watch my baby girl walk down the isle!

    I am submitting this post for my mom. My mom is awesome and has always given up everything for us kids. In doing so she has gone years and years without doing fancy things for herself. Now that we are all grown and she can do those extra things for herself she still tends not too. We try to do things for her or get her to do them and she still doesn’t want to be fussed over. This would be a great time for her and she couldn’t try to blow us off! It would also make my wedding just as special for her with a little pampering and time in the spotlight.

    My daughter and son-in-law were married without any family present a little over a year ago. Now, they want to do it “right” and for that, I need to look “right” as the mother of the bride. As my 66th birthday approaches in 2 days, I look in the mirror and see that both my face and my clothes are much older than I feel — too old for the look that my daughter would like me to have in order to be proud enough of me to show me off as her mom. Please help! Thanks.

    I am entering this contest for my mom. My parents were in the overseas with the military when they were married so they were unable to have a wedding. Because of this, my wedding is extremely important to my mother, and it would be amazing to be able to give her this as something to make her feel extra special on my wedding day.

    Regardless of the outcome, thank you for having this wonderful contest!

    I have never had a makeover, I think it would be so much fun. I lost 50 pounds this last year and next month I have to have surgery on my left ankle, I am getting an ankle replacement and will finally be able to walk normal again without pain. Getting a makeover would be wonderful to begin the beginning of getting my life back. Thanks for considering me for this exiciting opportunity.

    As the mother of 30 year old twin sons (which one son recently married this past Nov. 2009) and a beautiful 21 year old daughter who is getting married Dec. 2011, my time of raising a family and sacrificing to provide opportunities for my children to be successful have left me feeling frumpy and in a bad need of an update!

    One month to go for my daughers wedding (July11), and we find out dad will be going overseas the month after. Not a problem? Well, her brother was to get married in November. PROBLEM! Now we are merging TWO completely different WEDDINGS and receptions in to the SAME DAY, and same locations. EmErGeNcY tents to rent for more seating with more tables and chairs. More food, and meshing of two brides, two grooms, and three sets of parents is in full swing. This nagging feeling something is being forgotten is constantly in my mind. On line orders for reception supplies are slowly arriving. MY DRESS! I forgot to get a DRESS for ME!! Then… I realize I will no longer have the cash to do that special pampering hair appointment, so I dye my hair today. IT’S PURPLE! I know it will all work out… but the LAST thing on my mind has been what I will wear and look like. I NEED A MAKE OVER! (and a mind at this point!) 🙂

Now that it’s my turn, she’s an old hand at planning these things but could really use some help in finding her outfit and a look for the big day (June 11, 2011).

    She’s always so concerned with her girls and our needs that she forgets to think about herself. Thanks for considering my mama for this contest, she’s the best!

    My beautiful daughter, Jill, will be getting married next April. I hope to make her as proud of me as I am of her.
    Jill is an elementary school teacher who teaches invaluable lessons like raising your hand, waiting your turn and using your manners.
    Her fiance, Mark, is a brave firefighter who runs into burning buildings when most of us run the other way. He went to Iraq as a very young man and came home a humble,decorated veteran.
    To me, Jill and Mark represent everything that is bright and happy and full of hope. Their wedding will reflect that feeling.
    I feel very fortunate that I don’t have a sad story to contribute. I truly hope all the brides-to-be and their mothers have all their dreams fulfilled.

    I have a lighthearted poem that expresses my feeling for Jill’s wedding. Her special day is going to be fun and happy and full of love and laughter and maybe a little magic! Is that not what we all want for our daughters?

    At my hospital job, I wear scrubs every day.
    On weekends, a ball cap and jeans seem okay.
    When the bride dreams of ruching and lace filigree,
    I smile.
    Then I panic—she’s talking for ME!
    I’ve spit in the face of divorce and disease.
    Can a dress–just a dress–bring me down to my knees?

    When I glide to my seat, in the dress I SHOULD wear,
    In that perfect moment,my daughter will stare.
    Let her gasp in amazement! And don’t let her care
    When she sees that I really have Crocs under there.

    I’m entering on behalf of my mom, Joanna. Our wedding is coming up in August and she still has not found something to wear. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005 and is currently in remission. I am grateful for every day I have with her. She’s always been uncomfortable with her weight, even though she’s become so active lately with yoga and pilates. She has no idea how fabulous she looks. I really want her to find find a style that suits her- something that makes her feel beautiful and isn’t the typical frumpy MOB outfit. I’ve recently moved to another state and I wish I could be with her to pick out her dress, but I don’t know if I can make it happen before the wedding. It would be wonderful for her to have a helping hand since I can’t be there with her right now. I want her to look and feel her best. She deserves it!

    I’m actually entering my mom for this contest. She deserves a little pampering before my big day. She has provided for me for the past 24 years- especially as I battled leukemia and she spent days upon days in the hospital with me (while my brother and dad were often at home, 1 1/2 hours away). I want her to feel beautiful and realize how grateful I am for her!

    I am posting this comment/recommendation for my mom, Beth. She would never think she was qualified to enter a contest like this (she’s extremely humble and always thinks of others before herself), and yet I believe is just what you are looking for!

    My mom has served as a missionary in Mexico since 1995. She and my dad have dedicated their lives to native tribes in Mexico and have committed to serve these people in whatever way they can. On top of this, my mom has raised 5 kids, of whom I’m the eldest. She has made herself a low priority to ensure that we were well clothed and had all that we needed. I am so grateful for the example she has been of sacrifice and true love. However, this means that her formal wear wardrobe is nonexistent.

    I will be marrying the love of my life this coming spring, and I would love for my mom to be the recipient of a new gown. I want her to feel beautiful and put together since I know she rarely does. I want her to enjoy our wedding without feeling like she’s not dressed up to par, as if often the case for formal events. I believe she would be the most appreciative recipient of this gift and is well deserving of it. Thank you for considering her!

    My daughter is getting married in September 2011 to a wonderful young man we are thrilled to add to our family. My husband and I have had a difficult time over the past few years. He was diagnosed with cancer, my father became ill and passed away and then we lost my mother in March of this year. My husband also lost his job last summer and I have been working 2 jobs to make ends meet.

    My daughter has always been industrious and worked hard for everything she has. She has never asked us for anything, not even gas money when she got her first car! I would love to give her the wedding of her dreams.

    I have gained some weight over the past year and am working on losing it before the wedding. I feel frumpy and the mother of the bride should be radiant on her daughter’s wedding day. A mother of the bride makeover would be a wonderful gift for both my daughter and me.

    Thank you for this opportunity. What a wonderful contest idea!

    My darling baby boy is getting married – and I have nothing to wear!!! I’ve spent most of my life being a dedicated mother and avid athlete (hence the email address) but as a result my wardrobe has suffered. Looking through my closet I realized my favorite dresses are over 10 years old – it’s time to treat myself and really look fabulous for my son’s special day. I could use some help and advice though and would love to win this contest and work with the fabulous Kay Unger!

    I am the mother-of-the-bride for not one, but two weddings less than 11 months apart! My eldest daughter’s date is July 17, 2010 and my middle daughter will wed June 4, 2011. At 51 years old, I am 5’3″ and overweight. I wear a size 14 dress and am large busted. Finding dresses that fit and flatter is hard when you don’t feel great about your body. Fashions for my size and shape are hard to come by. I know that my daughters are the stars of their weddings, but I’d love to look good too.

    I have three beautiful daughters and these next few months will be very hard for me as all three move on to new stages of their lives. The eldest, Kate, is not only getting married in July but moving 5+ hours away as her new husband enters dental school. My middle child, is an R.N. who’s moving to North Carolina in August to enter a master’s program to become a Nurse Practioner. And my youngest just graduated from high school and is off to college this August.

    I couldn’t be more proud of my wonderful daughters, but becoming an instant “empty nester” will mean a time of transition for sure.

    My youngest son is getting married in the fall of 2011. His father died when I was 5 mos. pregnant with him and I raised him and his two older brothers alone. They were/and are, the greatest joys of my life. In their teen years I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I successfully beat it, only to have a reoccurrence 3 years later. I had bilateral mastectomies. I have not worn a dress since. Finding flattering clothing is a real challenge. I got heavier from medications and I also developed lymphodema in my right arm so it is larger than my left. Sleeves need to be loose. At the same time my hair became thinner due to chemo and radiation two different times and my eyebrows never came back. I am trying to lose some weight which is a real battle in itself, but I am determined. If I could win a total makeover, it would be a dream come true. I am so blessed to be alive and able to be here with my youngest son on what will be the happiest day of his life, and I would like nothing more than to look attractive and vibrant on his special day. Thank you so much for considering me, and, thanks for promoting dreams.

    I am leaving a comment on behalf of my wonderful mother. I am getting married this October in my Mom’s backyard. My dad passed away a few years ago, just six months shy of my parents’ thirtieth anniversary. Since then, I think she has been having a hard time figuring out who she is and where she fits into life without him. On my wedding day, I would love to see her with a reinvented style. As she stands in the backyard that he planted he will very much be with her, but she will also know she is moving forward in a new and positive direction that is uniquely her own.

    My Mom is an incredible woman who has just never taken the time to be very fashionable. She loves fashionably things, is an incredible seamstress and is always making things for other people and not worrying about herself. She makes dresses for me, my cousins, anyone at church who has a baby or a significant event coming up, and just anyone she can. Five years ago she started a solar water heating business with my Dad and they gave up a lot in order to to do it. The two of them together make less than my Dad made before and they work very hard to make the world a greener place. I would love if my Mom had the opportunity for a fabulous makeover that would be complete her-centered. She spends so much time on everyone else and is such a beautiful selfless person.

    I am writing in on behalf of my mom. This summer (August 2010) my brother is getting married and my mom definitely deserves this mother of the groom makeover. It has been quite a year for our family. My dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer in October and went in for surgery in January. She took care of my father for two months while he was in recovery as well as watching her grandson three days a week. She truly is a super mom. She has always been the mom who puts her family first and for once I would love to honor her with a makeover.

I was no great surprise that a wedding was in the future, but knowing the 2 of them now that they have made the decision I know the date they choose will not be too far in the future and I’m going to need help putting this together.

    My mom would probably die if she knew that I was writing this as she’s not big on attention. She is truly the most amazing mother and deserves this makeover and so much more. One word to describe her – SELFLESS. She’s never been one concerned much with what she’s wearing, simple dress slacks and a sweater are her standard. The reason being she does so much for everyone else- work, friends, and especially family. As the oldest of 3 girls, yep, that means 3 weddings, I would love to be able to treat my mom to a makeover. My parents eloped so my mom never got the “princess for a day” treatment and she is so worthy of that time to shine. To be honest, I’d be proud to have her there in a potato sack at my wedding but boy, wouldn’t this be an unexpected surprise.

  39. Chelsea says:

    Raising me on her own, without any help- working multiple jobs and giving me a consistently comfortable life that I would never mistake as anything but; my mom is the best person I’ve ever met… but I never told that her until recently. She has raised me to be smart, determined, and successful. I could not imagine a day without her- which made it extremely difficult when I had to move away to find a stable career.

    Ryan, my fiancé, knew how much my mom means to me. Ryan and I had been together for 3 years prior to his proposal. I moved away in July 2007, 9 hours away from my home town, and left Ryan at college- only 20 minutes away from where my mom lives. Ryan asked her to continue eating dinner with him regularly, bowling and additional activities we all had done when I had lived there. He even asked her for her permission to propose to me as well, shortly after I had moved. I knew she would be “ok” with him there. After Ryan graduated in 2008, he moved closer to me.

    Being away from my mom for three years, and only seeing her a few times per year, I have begun to see my mom in a different light- not only is she “ok” without Ryan and I, but she is amazing.

    She has become involved in guitar lessons, bird club, “Biggest Loser” local club (losing over 40 pounds), visiting the senior center with her pets, keeping up her old friend base and developing new friendships on a day to day basis. Sadly, she was even there to support her family through her parent’s recent divorce (after being married 52 years). All the while- she has been my biggest fan- always positive and ready to pick up the phone every time I need to talk. I have no secrets with my mom- and she knows how much I love Ryan… and I can see she is so proud that I have found someone so unbelievably special.

    Having my mom so far away from the both of us tore me apart. Every time I would go “home” to visit… and still do… I hold back tears. But knowing she has made such a good life for herself- and never letting the negatives get her down, she is the best role model I could have ever imagined. As my best friend, mentor, and mother- she deserves the world. I appreciate everything she has done for me- especially, everything she had to “give-up” while raising me to have a good life.

    This make-over is one thing that would not only make her day, but mine as well. Never does my mom ask for anything, but I would love my mother to walk me down the aisle with a make-over. She deserves a special day more than anyone I know.

Making phone calls and going to meetings with me. I would love to help her with her dress! I would be so overwhelmed without her during all this planning. She’s always there for me, with wedding planning and life in general. She’s been looking for a fashion forward dress for the wedding without much luck. She wants to be stylish and fun and it’s really hard to find that with MOB dresses. I know Kay would have the perfect dress for her. My bridesmaids are actually wearing Kay so having mom in Kay would be perfect!

I am getting married September 26, 2010 and I can’t think of anything I would want more than my mom to have a chance to be pampered and feel her best. She has lost a lot of weight and is looking fabulous and she is starting to feel better. She really doesn’t ever do anything for herself and lately has been really concerned about what to wear and how to look for the wedding.

    I NEED this makeover for my mom in a BAD way. 🙂 We’re getting married in early August and she still doesn’t have a dress. She is her father’s full-time care-taker (and until recently her mother’s too) and rarely has a chance to leave the house to do anything. let alone find a fabulous dress. She’s a gorgeous woman-but needs some re-invigorating and a push to let herself go a bit glamorous! My future-mother-in-law and the mother-of-the-groom found a fabulous dress she looks and feels beautiful in and I want my mom to have the same experience! It’s time for something to be about her and not focused on taking care of the rest of us.

    What a wonderful opportunity for a woman who knows deep inside that she’s FOF! This would not only be one of the MOB’s best days of her life, it would also escalate the bride’s happiness 10 fold. To imagine myself looking on the outside as good as I will feel on the inside on my only daughter’s wedding day is something I’ve been dreaming about. I want to make my daughter proud. I love her. She’ all I have. She deserves the best especially for that special day. We’ve been together for 25 years now, she and I. We’ve carried each other during the hard times and walked side by side during the good times. We’ve laughed and cried together, and separately. My need for the makeover comes from within. I’ve already lost some weight-for my own health reasons; but now for her wedding day, she’s got me working on toning my arms and tummy, suggesting hair color and style, and she wants me to wear something that is me inside – a true FOF woman and that can’t be an ‘old lady outfit’. She really wants me looking good, not the same old ‘OK look’, but fabulous! She wants my outside appearance to match what’s inside-all the excitement, energy, hope, desire, and perseverance that is FOF. I want that, too and that’s why I need the makeover. Thank you.

My one fear is that shes not taking the time for herself. She tries so hard to make everything wonderful for everyone else, that she tends to forget about herself. My Mom will be walking me down the isle, and I want her to feel as beautiful as I will with her on my arm.

    My fiance and I are fortunate to have two strong, supportive mothers that both deserve this opportunity for a myriad of reasons. However, the person in my life I would most like to be considered for this special opportunity is my aunt (Aunt of the Bride – AOB).

    Not only has my aunt been a positive fixture in my life, but she was the first to enthusiastically welcome my “Yankee” fiance into our very Southern family. In short, I could not imagine my wedding without her. She is also the mother of a bride-to-be; one of two intelligent, accomplished women that she raised.

    Unfortunately, a recent cancer diagnosis has forced her own family to post-pone wedding plans until after my aunt can undergo treatment. In addition, we are now unsure if this brave, caring woman (who spent her career caring for the homeless) will feel well enough to attend my upcoming wedding.

    Therefore, I would be grateful if you would consider her for this contest. My hope is that this opportunity will help my aunt excitedly look forward to future celebrations that she will not only be able to attend, but she will do so in style.

    My mother is an amazing individual, and I want her to look beautiful on my special day, something that would definitely bring tears to both our eyes. She is the kind of woman that gave up her life for her daugthers so they could have the best of everything, always neglecting herself and never giving herself something she needed. She still is the epitome of selflessness and deserves someone to take care of her for a change. Being away from her in VA, she’s going through the trials and tribulations of finding a dress by herself. It breaks my heart that I cannot be with her everyweekend to help her find something wonderful. We both would be so greatful. Thank you.

    I’m getting married in Nov. and this would be such a nice surprise for my mother and future mother-in-law. Both women are amazing and are being so supportive during this whole wedding planning process. I could not imagine two more deserving people. I live across the country from them and its been hard for both of them to help me in the planning process because we are so far away. I would love to be able to show them that I do appreciate all they have done and do for us daily! I want them to feel confident and fabulous on our big day!

    Oh my goodness – what a great giveaway! My mom and future mother in law have spent countless hours searching for their perfect dress for my wedding day – WAY more than it took for me to find my dress. I thought we found a dress for each of them during our first shopping trip (I thought they looked fabulous), but they later decided they wouldn’t be comfortable in those dresses. Since then, they’ve bought and returned several dresses, and have scoured every bridal and department store in the area. I am having a hard time understanding the indecisiveness, but I think they’re both nervous about their bodies. Of course I want them to be comfortable, but I also want them to see how truly beautiful that they (and their bodies) are. I’ve seen it in several of the dresses that they’ve tried, but I want them to see it too.

    I am entering my mom for this, hope that is ok!

    My mom always thinks of others before herself, especially when it comes to her three girls. She has worked so hard to instill in us the values she cherishes, while at the same time giving us more than we could imagine in terms of emotional and financial support through the years. Now that I am planning my wedding, I know that the focus will be on me, but I would love for someone to recognize HER for all she has done to make me the person that I am today! She never “does” for herself, so I think it would be awesome if she could be pampered in this way. I know she loves Kay Unger’s designs and would be beyond thrilled to wear one on my wedding day!

Between bouncing back and fourth to each wedding site busy with plans, attending showers, dinners, finalizing plans, arranging travel accommodations and hotel/motel reservations, there is no time for me! All of our family live out of state from either wedding site and there is alot involved in helping coordinate flights, rental cars, and activities during the stay, there is no time for me for shopping or anything else.

    Wow! I could really use a make-over. My daughter got engaged three weeks ago. I have spent the last nine months dealing with rectal cancer and have another surgery in 10 days. While the outlook is excellent, my hair has changed as well as my body from the chemo and the surgeries. And, I’m facing divorce, too. I have lost some weight but am a size 16. It is so difficult to find a good selection in that size and to look feminine and be comfortable at the same time. My daughter always looks great and has her own style. In fact, she sent me this link! I’d like to be able to do the same thing so I can feel confident and lovely as I start the next chapter in good health as we celebrate her marriage!

    My oldest daughter (of 2) plans to get married in October of 2011. She is marrying a wonderful, strong, intelligent, brave, generous, hardworking, and loving young man who is in the Army now for 3 more years (he has already been in 1 year and has graduated Basic with flying colors and plans to be a paralegal.). He actually joined to pay for his own education “so my parents wouldn’t have to”. The most important thing about him is he adores my daughter who is beautiful, intelligent, generous, loving, and hardworking as well.

    I am the mother of the bride. I have been an R.N. since graduating in 1978, but am unemployed at present because of my health (I have osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia and am on multiple medications for the pain.) My last job was at M.D. Anderson in the Texas Medical Center in Houston 3 years ago (my mother died of colon cancer so I wanted to work toward a cure). I loved working there because of the overwhelming atmosphere of love and hope among the patients and the employees. I was actually asked by a patient if we have to go to smile school to work there!

    Being at home and not physically well to go out to work or just to run errands as often as I’d like has worn down my 54 year old body. I need to lose 20 lbs., my hair is half salt and pepper and half auburn, I have lost hair on my head and on my eyebrows from stress. I am swollen all over as a result of the joint pain and medication side effects.

    I love my daughter tremendously and am helping her to plan this wedding as much as possible. I really don’t want her to feel burdened with helping me look beautiful for her wedding along with planning most of it by herself.

    Please consider me for a total makeover so I can, at least for one very important day, look like the glowing, proud mother of the bride I really am.

    Why do I need a makeover? It is my first time being a MOB and. have to tell you I am stuck in a rut. I always wear the same style of clothes, and I always wear black. I can’t even imagine what kind of dress to wear to the wedding because I have a belly that makes me look pregnant, but at 54 we know I’m not! My daughter is getting married in July 2010 so it will be hot. I know my hair will be a problem because it is straight and thin and the heat is going to make it fall no matter what (just like it did at my own wedding). We went to a makeup counter the other day to look at makeup and both of my girls and I were like fish out of water. I think I have been wearing the same green eyeshadow since high school! So, it’s a good thing I have a year to try to lose my belly, look for a dress I don’t look pregnant in, get a new hairstyle and try to learn about some new makeup. I guess I’ll be doing it on my own, but I could sure use some major help! Kay Unger – are you listening???

    Hello FOF. This offer comes at a perfect time for me! Allow me to explain what has led up to my need for help:
    Last year my Step-Daughter asked me to dress in a Mother-of-the-Bride’s dress, also sold at the shop everyone else was purchasing theirs. I waited until the two Mothers had purchased their own outfits, not because I was asked, but because I felt it was the right thing to do. I asked to see the other two dresses so as not to get the same color or style. (All dresses for the wedding were listed under the Bride’s name.) I found a dress that day, in a darker shade of taupe one might say, and it was ordered. After all my fittings, etc.., I picked it up, and it was mine.
    Less than two weeks before the wedding, I discovered that the Mother-of-the-Groom had difficulty with her dress, causing her to find another. As she was describing it, I was able to add to the description. She said, “Oh, you’ve seen it?” “Yes, in my closet,” I replied. Even though she hadn’t completed the alterations, I knew I had no choice but to get another dress.
    First of all, I phoned the dress store to complain about what had happened. They are a big chain, and “Mother” dresses are a big part of their business. They felt they did nothing wrong, and refused to offer to rectify nor loan me another dress, as they said it was not their fault. I even phoned the corporate office in another State, and received the same cold, uncaring responses, although this time the woman was actually mean to me. I was then forced to find a dress – somewhere else – and had to find someone to alter it. I chalked it up to experience, and said I would wear it to my Step-Son’s wedding – whenever that might be.
    He is now getting married September 11th of this year. I thought I was prepared for the wedding, only to hear that the Mother-of-the-Bride chose a chocolate brown dress for the wedding.
    This is very difficult for me, as I am disabled, and not well-off financially. I hope Karen finds me worthy of being chosen to wear one of her designs. Thank you.

    I’m a 68 year old Antique dealer. I changed my life 5 years ago and lost 170lbs, with the help of a wonderful life coach.Th best thing is I’ve stayed the same weight for almost 3 years.
    Although I think I’m pretty fabulous as I am, a little help never hurts.
    My son is getting married Oct.3 of this year. It’s an unconventional wedding at a campground in Westchester.I’d love to be informal but chic with a flair.

    My baby is getting married May 2011. Now that I am a bit older than the other weddings we had the shape I’m in is different. Plus I would like to surprise people with a little different look for myself. Especially the brdie as she isn’t letting anyone not even mom see her wedding dress before her special day. I would like to surprise her also. Have a fabulous day to all the other mothers out there!!!

    My 40 year old daughter is marrying a wonderful man Oct. 16, 2010. I am so happy for her and,of course, I want to look fabulous for the wedding. At almost 62, I need style updates for my hair, makeup and clothing. I feel so out of it since I spend my time teaching K-5 kids art with my hair in its naturally curly state and little makeup. I wear jeans and tee shirts or turtlenecks which won’t do for the wedding. With retirement and this wedding looming, I’m ready to become a new me!

    I am the bride would love for my mom to have a makeover! My mom is the most amazing woman in the world and has had a really difficult time these last few years. My mom had both an aneurysm and breast cancer in less than a 4 year span. But through it all she was such a tough, stong, and courageous woman. To top it off my mom also went though a financial hardship due to her illnesses.
    My Mom truly needs a makeover because she deserves it and well we don’t agree on clothes she always buys something and says right away I know you are not going to like it.
    I know my Mom wants to look amazing for my wedding and I would love for my mom to feel as beautiful as I think and know she is!

    I want my son to be proud of me on his wedding day. I’ve put most of my time and energy into my kids, and now that they are growing up and moving toward lives of their own, I look forward to new ways to reinvent myself. A Kay Unger makeover for my son’s wedding would be a fitting start.

    My beautiful only daughter will be married in September in Washington D.C., to a wonderful young man from that city. His family is well-connected and the wedding will be very special and personal. Since she was born I have dreamed of giving my daughter the wedding of her dreams, but my husband was laid off from his management position two years ago and, to my surprise and dismay, I was laid off in February, despite being my company’s top performer. We have an emergency savings account, but are using it to make mortgage payments while we job hunt. Unfortunately, we cannot afford to pay for our daughter’s wedding, which she accepted with a smile and complete understanding. For two years I have not purchased a piece of clothing for myself, and I have no idea how I will come up with the funds to buy a “mother-of-the-bride” dress. I probably will recycle an old outfit. But a makeover would be such a wonderful gift, at a wonderful time in our lives.

    I am writing this for my best friend Celeste. Her son is getting married in November and I would love for her to win this makeover. She has had some hard times at her house with her having to go back to work and her husband not having a job. They are doing much better now and both are working but having to play catch up with their bills. The expense of a wedding has been very straining and has added more to their stress. I would love for her to win this fabulous dress and private consultation so she can look and feel special for this special time in their life, her son’s wedding..

    My daughter is getting married next May. I need/deserve a MOB makeover because in the last 5 years my husband has been mostly unemployed and I have been the main breadwinner! I was working part-time and last January I was able to secure full time employment and I work in retail and work 2 – 3 11 hours days a week and every other weekend. So I could use some help for her big day! Thanks!

    My youngest daughter is our 11 year miracle( she was born just after her grandmother died of cancer) and although we love and enjoy our two sons, Amanda has always been a joy and a blessing. She is marrying her childhood sweetheart (who is a 6 year survivor of cancer) in December. I would like to look my best for her on this special day and at 62 years old, that takes some major work. Thanks for this opportunity.

    What about being Stepmother of the Bride, the bride a young woman who grew up in southern California with a dazzling fashion sense and has been, from time to time, disappointed that her stepmom hasn’t “stepped up to the plate” (pun intended). The wedding isn’t too fancy–a casual outdoor venue for the ceremony itself–but it is happening just weeks after another family wedding and weeks before a third, so panic has set in. How can I make sure I don’t embarrass my sweet stepdaughter? This offer appeared as if in a dream…

    Hope you’ll consider me.

    Being a MOB, single parent, and event organizer, I have a good grasp on what kind of time and energy is needed for an event of any size, let alone a wedding. But this time, this event, is for my only daughter. Each step has been a joy for me and really that is all I need.
    To tell you the truth, I would love for the style makeover to go to my soon-to-be son-in-laws mother. She would absolutely love this and would never ask for it herself. So, I hope she doesn’t mind if I ask for her.

    My daughter is getting married in January 2011 on the beach in Mexico. I’m a recent widow, and at 54, I want to look appropriate, but more stylish than most mother of the bride dresses I’ve seen. I’m short, and that makes it more difficult to find dresses that fit. Help!

    I am to be the mother-of-the groom two times this year. Both of my twin sons are getting married.
    I could use help because I recently lost weight, but still have problems finding clothes that fit and look good.
    I recently retired from teaching, and must admit my wardrobe has been a bit frumpy
    Please consider helping this retired mother-of twin-boys.
