For her second turn as mother of the groom, Trudie returned to the style that made her feel beautiful the first time around: a one shoulder, A-Line gown.
Larger on the bottom than top, Trudie says dresses with fuller skirts tend to cut her in half or emphasize her hips. “After trying on many silhouettes, I felt comfortable and confident in a one shoulder gown, which draws the eyes up. I guess it’s my signature look now!”
Trudie loved the diagonal folds of the Alexander by Daymor dress she found at New Jersey boutique Seng Couture. “I felt it complemented my curves and allowed me to feel elegant and most importantly, confident.” She loved the way the slate blue color played off of the water since the wedding took place at a yacht club. The metallic fabric was lightweight, says Trudie. ”Very comfortable to wear all day, and dance all night.”
And dance, they did. Trudie and her husband Reno surprised guests with their own entrance dance at the reception. “It was really fun to choreograph.”
