Q. My mum wants to wear a lace gown, but we're struggling to find a design that we both like. Do you have any suggestions?

A. Dee Brain says: It may be possible that the garment of your dreams isn't available this season. I suggest that you both sit down and come up with a compromise. Remember the most important thing is that your mum feels wonderful and looks forward to wearing the garment. Afterall, it would be a shame to spend money on something neither of you are really happy with.

Q. I want my mother to feel fabulous on my big day. She's recently lost a lot of weight and doesn't feel confident about how she looks. What style of dress would you suggest to give her a boost?

A. Dee Brain says: If your mum has lost a lot of weight, then it may take a while for her to get used to her new shape and feel confident.
* Encourage her to experiment and try clothes that are different to what she usually wears. Look at a variety of designs and styles until she finds something that makes her feel comfortable.
* I recommend 991441 by Ronald Joyce, 70954 by Condici or ISC 966 by Inspirato. Mother-of-the-bride specialist
