There used to be a perscibed look for bride and groom Moms. Check out any movie like Father of the Bride (1950 version) and you'll find a well turned out but premature, over-the-hill ensemble on a still going strong beauty like Myrna Loy. Traditions die hard. A new generation of Moms known for questioning tradition are finally stepping out of the accepted standard and going for looks like this emerald gem if it's flattering. Kudos to them!
