Wedding in Taos this spring

  1. Greetings to all...

    I know this is a really crazy question, but, what to wear as the mother of the groom for a May wedding? I know that the weather can be unpredictable (I live in Oklahoma). As the wedding rehearsal dinner will be outdoors, what can I wear? I have an idea, that I would love to embrace the wonderful culture of the New Mexico southwest.

    So my fellow nurses, are you able to help this Okie dress in style for a great wedding in your beautiful state? I would appreciate any and all of your comments and ideas. Maybe even names of dress stores that would have websites for ideas.

    Thanks so much...

    I had a vacation in NM in May of 2006... We went all over that area, Taos, Santa Fe, Acoma, etc. the weather was absolutely beautiful every single day.

    I might recommend you utilize Albuquerque to start your search for tailoring/dressmaking/etc. I suppose Santa Fe and Taos might also have something suitable, though they are pretty small towns, relatively speaking. Albuquerque, though large, still has a "grass roots" type flavor, very strong and interesting cultural references, and I am sure you would have an easy time finding what you are looking for. Taos is a bit like other fancy shmancy ski resort towns, so you would be spending top dollar on anything there, though you are likely to find designer stuff there I would imagine.

    Best of luck, and congrats to your family.

    Thanks so much for your reply and the tip to try to shop outside of Taos. Hopefully, I can find something since we are going to spend some days shopping before we get to Taos.

    It's going to be a great trip!!!
