While current conversations are focused on Meghan Markle and her upcoming Royal Nuptials, you may have wedding-wear issues a little closer to home if you are the mother of the bride this year.

(Please, I beg you, SKIP the lace. It is so grandmotherly on someone under 75.)
Obviously, the first questions in selecting an outfit are purpose and comfort.
