54 Days & Counting- Mama Lim’s Dress

It’s always exciting to have my parents come down to visit, but this time around it was a VERY important trip specifically  for my mommy. I requested that she come down so we can go find a beautiful dress for her to wear to my wedding…. after all she IS the mother of the bride…..

So I took her on a little shopping spree at South Coast Plaza. and of course I had to pick myself up these Sandro sneakers that i’ve been eyeing for quite some time. Feelin’ fresh to death in my sneaks next to Mama lim 😛

First stop was at Tadashi Shoji. The first dress she tried on was glamorous and fun! We loved the delicate neckline, but I was not a fan of the big bow in front nor the sparkle & sequins ( you cant really see it in the pictures). Regardless it was a beautiful dress and mommy loved it!

This was the second dress she tried on. This dress  is more muted, conservative  & classic than the previous one. It’s elegant & classic  whereas the previous one is more glamorous & fun! For some reason this dress really moved me….

and I think mama Lim loves the dress too!! {and yes, she was doing her Happy dance in the middle of the store!}

Finding the perfect dress is certainly not the easiest thing to do , but it’s all worth it at the end. Seeing my mommy’s face light up after finding the PERFECT dress  reminded me why I do what I do…. and that is to make women feel beautiful & confident. And of course being able to give back to my parents for all they have done for me by simply spoiling my mommy for the day really put a smile on my face over the weekend!

We actually ended up buying both of the dresses beacuse we couldn’t choose between the two!So i’m going to leave it up to you guys  to help Mama Lim!

Should Mama Lim wear the glamorous dress or the classic dress?

Thanks for your help guys! My mama and I really appreciate it!




  • […] When we were brainstorming concepts for this project, I knew within a heartbeat that we needed to include my mom. About 8 months ago, during the wedding planning madness, I took my mom shopping at South Coast Plaza and ended up spending the entire day at the Tadashi Shoji store. I had no idea how much she loved the brand at the time, until I saw the look on her face as she tried on each gown, a few of them even had her dancing around with joy,as you guys might remember from this post HERE.

  • Stephanie says:

    A little late to the discussion, but I hope you guys picked the glam one!!


  • Hannah says:

    GLAMOUROUS, you only have one day to celebrate your wedding ! you can be bold this day ! and the glamourous dress is very pretty !


  • Stephanie says:


  • Adrienn says:

    Both gorgeous,but I vote for the classic one!:)

  • Meggan says:

    She looks amazing in both dresses but she is even more astounding in the classic one! Your mom is going to be the second Queen of the day!

  • Aysha says:

    The first one is way to sparkly for her I like the classy one better

  • Aysha says:

    I love the second one for her

  • kenza says:

    the classic one of course its much better

  • Christine says:

    Classic all the way!

  • Hena says:

    Hey! Your mum is so pretty & young! Looks like your sister. 😉 Anyways, I kinda like the glamorous dress on her. But if your mum was so happy with the other classic dress, she should wear that. For her happiness. :)

  • Eunice says:


  • Syd says:

    I think the glamour without the bow if she really likes it, but I love the classic on her!

  • Rachael says:

    I’ll go for the classic one. The description tells it all. I love it.

  • Jane says:


  • Alvina says:

    I love your mom in classic :)

  • Bibi says:

    Classic! It seriously flatters her well!

  • M-re says:

    omg both dresses are beautifull <3
    but i'm gonna go with classic.
    she looks soo much more refined and polished (:

  • Faye says:

    definitely classic for your mum! it suits her the most :)

  • Yuki says:

    GLAMOROUS!!Love at 1st sight! Can she wear both on that day?

  • Emily says:

    I vote for the Classic! They both look wonderful on her though.

  • Zooey says:

    Definately the classic one, love it! :)

  • Michelle says:

    both are very beautiful but i prefer the classic over the glam(:

  • Jamie says:

    The classic is absolutely gorgeous! I would go with that :)

  • Cleo says:

    Glamorous! Or it is a very good idea to wear classic one for the ceremony and glamorous for the party.

  • mady says:

    I like the classic one !
    both dresses are very nice

  • Tammy Phan says:

    I say classic for the ceremony, glamorous for the reception!

  • lanalane says:

    Classic!! The Glamorous dress is beautiful, but the shape is too loose.

  • Winnie says:

    Classic is the best for Mama Lim. Details on the Classic dress are unique & define which is very blend to the dress! The Cut layout is fine too, Simply Elegant! Also, it brings out the mama look of yours! Whereas the glamorous dress is too heavy look which has taken up overall Mama lim’s image.

  • May says:

    Classic! Also, judging from your comments on your reactions, classic would be the way to go.

  • Patricia Lee says:

    classic dress and play up the jewelry :)

  • Gloria says:

    CLASSIC all the way! I love the band along the waist. Gives your mom a more shapely figure in the dress and that style isn’t that flashy compared to the other one.

  • Sahra Manutasna says:

    i simply loved the classic the best! I believe that one wins hands down.:)

  • Kimberly says:

    i LOVE classic!Its so beautiful!

  • The glamorous one, definitely! It makes your mom fresh, shiny and very pretty. I don’t relly like the shape of the classic one, it’s rigid and the color is similar to her skin. The glamorous plays a fashion contrast on her.
    Trust me!

  • Hollie says:

    Glamorous! Just like you!

  • Lily says:

    The classic to the ceremony and then the glamorous one to the reception!!!

  • Amy says:

    CLASSIC!!!! <3 It flatters her so much :)

  • Ana says:

    the classic dress :)

  • Sophia Woon says:

    your mom is gorgeous~ =)

  • eva says:

    definitely glamorous. she is an important person at your wedding too!! :)

  • tiffany julia says:

    GLAMOROUS! the classic will make mama lim fade into the background. the glamorous one stands out more!

  • Christina says:

    the classic one!

  • Laura says:

    I’ll go with the galmourous dress! the classic is too pale :)

  • jes says:

    I like the classic one… Mama Lim looks awesome.

  • Emily says:

    Classic totally!

  • may says:


  • Sharleen says:

    CLASSIC all the way.

  • Kate & Zena says:

    I like the second one better. However, either one would still need to be hemmed!

  • I say the glamorous dress simply because of the cut. The cut of the classic dress makes her look a bit like a little girl. But at the same time, the style is a lot better than the first… so I don’t know either!

  • tOFUbankai says:

    I think GLAMOROUS. Although I prefer the classic, because it is a wedding afterall and she plays an important role at the wedding so you want her to stand out from all the lovely dressed people in the crowd! 😀 Love your momma Lim btw

  • Lola says:

    I prefer the Glamorous on her, it makes her shine and compliments her skin and hair color. The Classic seems to blend in with her skin color and washes her out.

    If you go with the Glamorous, I would change out the belt and find something that tones down the dress while showing off her tiny waist.

  • Ilaf says:

    I like the classic one the best(:

  • julia says:

    classic. it’s so beautiful on her!

  • Both are beautiful but she should totally go with the GLAMOROUS one!!!! That dress is fabulous on her! Plus, we all know you’re going to be stunning so mamma should be too! Let everyone see where you get it from!!! :o)

  • You can never go wrong with classics!

  • mani says:


  • Her dress is so perfect! The colors for your wedding look awesome

  • Brianna says:

    Mama Lim looks wayyyy better in the classic. This is your big day, if she gets the
    glamour she might out shine you on your wedding day. Sorry if thats blunt.

  • Bri says:

    Classic for sure…

  • Manyee.K says:

    classic !!

  • Lisa K says:

    You two look stunning! Your mother looks so young! Oh, I think the classic dress is super duper!! 😀

  • bet says:

    your mom is so beautiful! I think it will feel more secure with the classic, is so cool that you are together <3

  • Deanne Belle says:

    I LOVED the simple “conservative” one, it was plain yet, it really does give you the impression or feeling of elegance and sophistication. The shiny or glittery one, I guess speaks for itself. It’s more fun and exciting. Anyway, I think, since you bought both of the lovely dresses, I think you’re mom should wear the classic one during the wedding ceremony and the fun one during reception? Who says only the bride can change dresses on her wedding? MOM can too! haha
    — hope it helps! Love you and what you do <3

  • Mara says:

    both dresses are amazing, but i instantly fell in love with the ‘classic’ dress! although many seem attracted to the glam one, i definitely prefer the classic one..

  • vanessa says:

    The classic dress looks nicer. There seems to be a lot going on on the glam one..

  • sinthee says:

    Glam for sure!! i agree that the classic one is a bit too understated for own daughter’s wedding party. i mean like.. you’ll only marry once right?:)

  • Tamara says:

    Glam is the nicer one, the classic dress is a bit understated

  • Fariha T. says:

    I vote for classic. That dress is beautiful and shows your mother’s body shape while staying conservative. The glam one is distracting and I’ve never been much of a fan of too much sequins (the bow doesn’t help either). Overall, your mother is extremely beautiful and the classic dress really lets her natural beauty shine. By the way, you look exceptionally pretty in these pictures =] Good luck!

  • fkxoxo says:

    Your mom is soo beautiful :)


  • Li says:

    Definitely the glam dress!

  • Ana says:

    I vote for the classy! It will stay in style years from now. Not like the glam you may look at your pictures in a few years and say what was Mama Lim wearing?? even though its beautiful as well!

  • Diana Tran says:

    Classic!!! I think she looks so classy and elegant in that one (:

  • kathy says:

    i vote for classic. Looks like it would fit your mom better. Plus the glamorous one, doesn’t lay as good on your mom. And that bow is just too much. CLASSIC for the win! 😀

  • Andreea says:

    Your mom is so pretty!!! And I like both dresses on her but I think she made the happy dance for the classic one:). Whatever she will choose for your wedding, she should definitely wear both of them, when she has the occasion :)

  • Lilis says:


  • farhana says:

    yess hijabi women in the background! so dopE! I VOTE GLAMOUR!

  • Mary says:


  • grace says:

    i love the classic one!!!

  • Jennifer Nelson says:

    Hi Chriselle,
    All the way from Rotterdam, The Netherlands I vote for the classic during the day and the glam for the night.
    I agree with an earlier comment that makeup and hair should complement both dresses.
    I must say that, knowing your talents, this will be something well taken care of.
    I wish you and your future husband, all the happyness, patience and respect with and for eachother.
    To speak in your terms stay chic but also stay in love!

  • Fanni says:

    Definitely the glamorous one, it’s really elegant and it fits perfectly!The classic is too light for her skin I think, she looks a bit pale in it, it’s too conservative.

  • Sarah says:

    I vote Glam!

  • Ally says:


  • Adrienne says:

    I will go for the classic one. I feel the exact same way about it, I was moved the moment I saw it. There is something motherly about that dress, that if she wore in on the wedding day, other people would definitely be able to tell she is the bride’s mom.

  • RaeRae says:

    The glam dress please ! Mama Lim looked like superstar ! Not every mama can rock this
    piece !

  • Rene says:

    I like CLASSIC so muchhh better. The color fits her more and it kinda makes your mom look taller actually :0

  • Victoria S. says:

    Glamorous for sure! It makes her look younger and glowy! The classic dress is too plain for this event.

  • Gina Zammit says:

    Definitely the glam dress! It’s stunning!

  • Nicole says:

    the glam one is better suited for night-type banquet wedding, and the classic is better suited for an outdoors day-time styled wedding

  • glam glam glam glam

  • Amz says:

    the second one is gorgeous

  • Spojf says:

    I like how the classic stays on her more

  • Darmina says:

    GLAM ! <3

  • Neha says:

    Classic! It gives your mum a sophisticated yet chic look!!

  • Aiira says:

    The Classic Dress really gives Mama Lim that ‘Mother of the Bride’ glow. She looks stunning in it.

  • Sara says:

    Classic! She looks beautiful in both, though :)

  • sara says:

    Glamorous one, it looks better on her. The other one is too plain I think. And the glamorous one gives her body a better shape, it’s more flattering.

  • lia says:

    Definietely the glamorous….

  • Khaula says:


  • Shi Yun says:

    I really prefer understated fashion. So classic’s my choice! 😀 It’s a very classy and dignified dress!

  • Jenny says:

    Congratz Chriselle! Love ur simple classy and chic style. U look just like ur mum! Gorgeous!!! Go for the classic! Its the PERFECT dress for bride’s mother. Elegant and totally classy. Thought the glam one was a little tacky with the bow and overly shiny lace if u know what i mean! Good luck!! Cant wait to see photos of u in your wedding dress! <3 god bless!

  • Stacey says:

    I absolutely love the classic dress, but your mother rocks both of them! I find it rather ironic because my own mother is currently searching for a “mother of the groom” dress for my brother’s wedding. Your mother’s dress ideas have really helped her out!

  • Golden Girl says:

    I definitely like the “Classic” dress. It’s simple, soft, has nice detailing (nothing plain about it) and really photographs well. The perfect bling: earrings, bracelet,clutch and makeup will make Mom look Beautiful & Glam!!! :-)

  • Julianne says:

    Definitely Glamorous! She looks absolutely stunning in that dress!

  • Kimm. says:

    Definitely the glamorous one! It suits her better and it is more weddingproved 😉

  • Esther says:

    The classic one! It’s really beautiful and she looks really nice with it! I would wear some nice and classic accessories and then it’s perfect! :)

  • Kim says:

    The glam one! It looks SO fabulous on your mom! I just love the bow too, it just adds a little ‘extra’ to the dress and it all comes out perfect!

  • Justine (JUS71N3) says:

    She looks absolutely fantastic in both, but I think the classic one fits her just that little bit better and is more appropriate for a reception type of setting.(:

  • Gaia says:

    Your mom looks fantastic in the GLAM dress. But this one would be too much for like a reception so she could wear the classic one then. For the party absolutely the glam dress.

  • Linea Stöyl says:

    I’d go for the glamorous! Really loved it :)

  • Patrycja says:

    Glam !!!

  • Cyrielle says:

    Glam for the day and Classic for the Night!

  • claudia says:

    the classic dress suits your mom perfectly!

  • Lilly Piso says:

    Classic looks better on her ^^ !! and congrats Chriselle , wish you all the best you deserve it !!!

  • Pau says:

    I love the classic one! :)

  • Zosia says:

    Classic :) She looks better in it

  • Fabienne says:

    I think your mom can rock both of these dresses but i prefere the glam one.
    I love the shiny fabric with the loop.It looks very elegant.
    And Congrats Chriselle! Have a beautiful day !

  • kendra alyse says:

    Glamorous all day. She’s besutiful in that dress

  • Grace says:

    classic 😀

  • Ami says:


  • Thora says:

    The glamorous ! <3

  • Rebecca says:

    Two really beautiful dresses, but I would go for the classic!

  • Lora says:

    I love the glam dress on her. I am like you and not a big fan of the ribbon bow, but I have watched enough of your videos to know you will do something a little more creative than that. She looks beautiful in either dress. :)

  • Mochi says:

    Definitely the glamorous one. The classic dress makes her look old and washes her out. Also I think that there are not many occasions to dress glamorously. Your mum should take the chance. Conservative dresses are for conservative events, not a wedding where everyone is celebrating.

  • MissBunny says:

    the classic one, but you can add the bow around her waist…i like it better because the classic dress has a little sleeve ^_^ but hey, she should choose the one that makes her feel comfortable and beautiful!

  • Angela says:

    Your mum looks so beautiful! I vote for both! Wear the classic one during the day then the glam one for evening! Both those dresses are gorgeous! And Congrats Chriselle!

  • Jaye says:

    The classic one! Though the glamorous one is really fun and pretty but i think Mama Lim has the elegant vibes so the classic one might suit her more (:

  • Faria says:

    CLASSIC-It really suits your mom, looks very gorgeous on her <3

  • Nina says:

    The classic one is beautiful. I’d choose that one. All the lines and everything is more flattering for her body. :)

  • Stephanie Tsang says:

    The classic one for the wedding then change to the glamorous one for the wedding party! 😀

  • Mira says:

    Couldn´t choose as well. Your mum is pretty. Both dresses are awesome


  • Melissa says:

    I really like the classic one. The glam one is pretty nice, but I feel she looks better in the classic one and I think it just suits her well.

  • Kate Jones says:

    I think your mom looks more beautiful in the “classic” dress. It lets her face be seen, which is most important in a photograph – especially at your wedding!!

  • Donna M says:

    Wear the adorable classic dress at the ceremony and the fab amd glam dress at the reception. Her hair should also be styled to compliment her dresses. Have fun! xoxox

  • Irina says:

    I vote for Glam. it fits perfect to her :)

  • May says:

    Glam is fun, but not only is the classic formal and elegant and; it suits her physique better also!

  • Michelle Liew says:


  • jessica says:

    the classic fits well in mama lim figure, but the color doesn’t bring out her skintone. It would be perfect if the classic is in glam color. The only solution is, classic dress with a more bright makeup, like red lipstick and accessories that would bring out the dress at the same time make mama lim look great :)

  • Federica says:

    She is amazing in both, but i vote classic!!!

  • Sandra says:

    I vote for GLAM…Your mum is very beautiful and absolutely fit in that dress, she has a great figure and the short hair looks great with it…Classis hairdo and piece of glam…

  • Sherry says:

    i like the classic one

  • Serena says:

    I prefer the classic one 😉

  • amy says:


  • SoKim says:

    Definitely the classic one. It’s regal, formal and beautiful. And, I’ve never been a fan of sequins for formal events, they just seem tacky and nightclubby. Plus… The classic one looks so Korean. <3 The glamorous one looks kind of lumpy on the top but the classic one falls nicely. Hope you pick the best one! :)

  • amy says:


  • Stephanie says:


  • Karen says:

    “Classic” she knows how to rock it ! 😀

  • Huma says:

    Glam!!! You only get married once (well mostly…lol) but yeah glam!!

  • Sanne says:

    I’d say classic. IT gives her a really soft and warm look whilst the other one appears kind of sharp/harsh against her features in comparison. It does of course depend on how you’re wedding’s going to be. When you go for warmth I would definitely recommend classic, but if you’re going to celebrate it glamorous and with this ‘celeb’ feeling I’d say glam. So perhaps place things in context? ;]

  • Nadine says:

    I love the “Classic” one on you mom! It looks gorgeous on her!

  • Joanna Quach says:

    The glam one. She looks so lively and glowing in it.

  • Sardius says:


  • Amanda says:

    I vote for the glam one, really like how it fits her well. The classic one makes things feel a bit too flat, but I guess it´s a drss you can really dress up och down if you want to. Still The glam one makes her shine more so my vote goes there ;>

  • Franci G. says:


  • Kai Shi says:

    Omg mama lim look absolute young! I prefer the classy dress! She look so glowy & radiant in it!

  • Ruimin says:

    GLAMOROUS! Mama Lim look so pretty and young in that !

  • kira jing says:

    classic is safe for formal events!

  • Arra says:

    LOVE glam!! It’s a really special dress for a really special night. By the way.. YOU LOOK JUST LIKE YOU MOM.

  • Ms. Faye says:

    Congradulation Dear!ing
    Your Mom is Gorge! ~_~
    The ‘Formal Dress’ is a keeper! Yamaha!
    The Classic is 2 plain.
    Happy Shopping. ~_~
    Fashion! JustHowEyeSeeIt!

  • Phoebe says:

    I vote glam! The color brings out her skintone. I do like the classic, but the color washes here out a bit. And the glam one does make her look more youthful! However, if you both felt a connection to the classic dress, that’s the one you should get.

  • Nicole says:

    Choose the classic!!! It’s amazing, so beautiful and elegant!

    Kisses from Hong Kong,

  • Magdalene says:

    CLASSIC! Timeless, elegant, motherly, beautiful,graceful.

  • Kacess says:

    classic! it has a really elegant and somehow motherly feel 😀

  • Nora says:

    Go for the classic one :) The glamorous one looks too overwhelming and for me it looks like she’s wearing a borrowed dress from someone else. Her features are not accentuated well, well… unless you changed her bow belt to obi belts, I might reconsider :)

    However, the classic one makes her look younger and it really wraps around her nicely. It looks neat and sophisticated. So i’d say GO FOR THE CLASSIC! 😀

  • Nicole says:

    Although both are very nice on her, I’d say classic because it is more timeless and the color really suits her complexion. But at the same time, it will also depend on the venue and the theme/color theme of the event to see which one would be more fitting. :)

  • Rachelle says:

    Classic <3

  • Liliana says:


  • stephanie laysa says:

    the classic one! she looks so elegant on that dress.

  • Lupe says:

    Classic is much better!! ❤


  • silvia says:

    at first, i thought the glam one is the best, but the more i look at the glam one, i feel bored. at the end, i love ur mom’s look on that classic dress, i just feel ur mom looks younger and it’s just so perfect to be worn on ur wedding day. go for classic, chrisselle.

  • Nirisha says:

    I think you should go for the classic! Your mother looks stunning in it!

  • tess says:

    The thicker belting on classic shows better waistline, and the colour is more subtle and elegant , and the flare skirt is better then the straight skirt in the glam one.

  • Charlotte says:

    Glamorous for sure! I work at BCBG Max Azria. Just trust me!

  • Elyse says:

    The classic dress is self explanatory …. Classic. And you can’t got wrong with classics. But they both look great on her!

  • selin says:

    i love the GLAM one….the GLAM for the reception and the CLASSIC for the ceremony…

  • May says:


  • Anne Richmond says:

    I LOVE the glamourous one! but which ever one Mama Lim likes best:)

  • Jessica C. says:

    Ok, I LOVE the glam one because it’s just GLAM, BUT, I think it will take away from the beautiful bride. Even in the photo above, all I can see is your mom. That day is going to be about you and your future husband Chriselle! Choose the classic. It’s really pretty as well =)

  • Tasha says:

    The classic one is the best! It looks so cute on her haha ( :

  • Sam says:

    I agree – wear one for the wedding and one for the reception. If mama lim isn’t going to over accessorize then probably the glamorous for the wedding, but with the classic one some really elegant accessories will help mama lim stand out as too will makeup.

  • Mary says:


  • Adeline says:

    i vote for the classic one !

  • Min says:

    When I first saw the dresses I immediately like the classic one but then I realized how it’s a bit casual. I feel like because it’s your wedding and your mom is a huge part of it, she should wear the glamorous one. I mean, when else can you wear it? The glam definitely makes her stand out :)

  • karen says:

    the classic one it looks so pretty on her :)

  • Grace says:

    Simple: Classic for the ceremony, Glam for the reception 😉
    Problem solved!

  • Bodor says:

    classic your mom is so cute <3

  • Kanages says:

    The CLASSIC dress!

  • Charlotte Roberts says:

    It looks like Fit vs Color on this one.
    I would pick Glamorous because the color was warmer for her skin tone, but I would change the ribbon bow belt for a more narrow obi type belt. Maybe if the existing belt wrapped and tied simply in the back?


    It is hard to go against a dress that moved you as the bride emotionally! You should do what you feel on this special day in your and your husband-to-be’s lives! And your mom looks great in the Classic fit:)

  • Janiece says:

    I think I like the Classic dress better- it fits her so well and she still ends up looking glamorous in it! It’s beautiful!

  • carolina caballero says:

    I really loved the second one on mama lim the best! She looked so lovely <3

  • Eli Ippolito says:

    I love the glam on her but its your day to shine so maybe the classic would be best in this situation.

  • Kim says:

    Ooh, tough call. I definitely like the colors of the glam dress more, but I’d go with the classic dress because it’s more form fitting. The colors look really nice with her skin and it’s a much more modest dress. Definitely pleasing to the eye, but not too flashy!

    Besides, isn’t the bride supposed to be the glamorous one on her wedding day? ;D

  • Caroline says:


  • I’m login the glam it suits her. The classic fades her out too much

  • joanne says:

    i’d go with classic. :)

  • Anna says:

    The classic dress is very lovely on your mom! The glam dress looks just as good too! However the classic one really pops out to me. It’s simple and elegant!

  • Stephanie says:

    I think she should wear Glamorous. Very cute! :)

  • Jessica says:

    CLASSIC! She looks beautiful in it, and after all she is the mother of the bride, so she needs to reflect her daughter elegance. Classic ftw!

  • Karz says:

    The classic dress! Perfect for her, looks gorgeous!

  • Cassie says:

    I think the simple one just compliments her better. And the fact that the dress moved you is very important for your wedding… What do you think?

  • Karz says:

    the classic dress

  • Maricar Reyes says:

    the glamorous one, she will look 10 years younger, and looks more sophisticated, too…

  • Lois says:

    The’s super Georgous on her.

  • May says:

    Definately #2 dress- THE CLASSIC ONE!! she seems like such a elegant woman and the 2nd dress would suit her more..+ she did the happy dance for it! GORGEOUS Mother n’ Daughter Duo! Congratulations on you upcoming nuptials! <3

  • Hajera says:

    The Glam one!!!!!!

  • Moca says:

    Looks like she feels more comfortable in the classic look, so I vote classic!! :)

  • Jess says:

    The classic one is my favorite, it looks beautiful on your gorgeous mom<3(:

  • Nat says:

    I love the Classic one!! I mean both are really preeetty and suit Mama Lim well :) but for me I think the Classic look suits the wedding event more :)
    and especially if it moved you emotionally and Mama Lim did her happy dance :)

  • Chelsie says:

    Classic ,most definitely !

  • fifi says:

    definitely the classic dress! it suits her silhouette, and its just so elegant and gorgeous… but in the end, whichever one she likes better is most important! good luck with your choices! xo

  • Erica says:

    Classic, but I think to bring out some youth in the dress (it looks a little TOO muted for a wedding), add a statement necklace or something shiny? :)

  • Michelle says:

    Definitely GLAMOROUS!!

  • Grace Lauzon says:

    The classic dress looks great on your mom. :) <3

  • C says:

    love the glamourous one!

    I like the classic one more. The shape of the dress is very complimenting.

  • Laporsha Sturdivant says:

    The classic!!! Gorgeous on her!

  • Amy says:

    The classic dress is simple and effortless. I also agree with Nan’s comment that the classic one is more suitable for her role as the bride’s mother.

  • Nikki K says:

    The classic dress fits her best. It actually compliments her body very well and more than the glamorous dress. I feel that the glamorous dress looks a little bit too much, especially that bow ( like you said). Mothers of the brides should be able to wear a dress that is classic and elegant, in which her look with the dress won’t get outdated in the future as well. Overall, both dresses are great pieces! o^_^o

  • Anna says:

    Classic, definitely! I think it suits her better.

  • DANA MA says:

    classic!!!!!!!! the colour of that dress matches her skin tone

  • Nan says:

    Go with the classic! Both dresses look great on her, but the classic one is more suitable with her age and as a bride’s mother.

  • MaCashen says:

    I really like the classic look on her. It’s a little long, but I think the sleeves are definitely more fitting for the mother of the bride.

  • nora says:

    definitely classic. your mum is so beautiful :)

  • Toni says:

    I like the glamorous dress!!

  • Brittany says:

    I think the classic look fits her beautifully! I would choose the classic although the glam look is beautiful as well. I’m sure you guys will make the right choice though :)

  • Ayanna says:

    This is so hard >.< I almost wish you could somehow combine the two dresses because I love both of them. I think I like the first a bit more, but maybe that's 'cause I just like sparkly things XD

  • Shelley says:

    Glamorous! Her daughter’s only getting married once, may as well spice it up 😉

  • Michelle Cheng says:

    Mama Lim should wear what she feels most comfortable in. Comfy = confidence = beautiful. Also, Chriselle you have this vintage arrow ring that I am obsessed with. Any chance you and JNB can create that for her next collection? Or just one? Hahaha.

  • hayde says:

    Glamorous..looks better for me!

  • Charisse says:

    The Classic one! :) really fits her well. Simple & elegant but not over the top. Though the glamourous dress is really pretty, I’d say pick the one she would feel most comfortable in :)

  • Mai says:

    The classy one!

  • Cindy says:

    Classic looks beautiful on her (:

  • 3lin says:

    both of you look a like. eye and teeth = the same

  • Leah says:

    The classic dress, definitely!

  • Autumn says:

    I like the silhouette of the classic dress, but the glamorous dress just makes her pop. I don’t know what it is… maybe the neckline. It just looks awesome on her. I say ditch the bow, belt it with something else (she’s got such a great body – gotta show it off somehow) and get it hemmed! Haha. You’re the expert at DIY fashion fixes, so I know you can come up with something amazing to cinch that tiny little waist of hers.

    Either way though, they’re both beautiful dresses on a beautiful woman. You can’t go wrong!

  • Julia says:

    hi Chriselle! For the dress, I personally think she should wear the glamorous one. She just looks so happy and young. A bit of sparkles isn’t bad:) But ultimately, it is really up to her.

  • Kim says:

    The glamorous one. First look, I was sold. :)
    It makes her skin glow and makes her look younger!
    Congratulations on everything and good luck! :)))
    xoxo :)

  • Tiffany says:

    The classic fits her form better than the glamorous one, but I think she needs some glamorous accessories (i.e. necklace, earrings, shawl) that will contrast the muted color and round edges. :)

  • Carla says:

    The Classic is the BEST, she looks lovely and gorgeous!

  • Symmetry says:

    The classic dress fits her body wonderfully. Not to mention the flashyness in the glamourous dress just doesn’t exactly look right. The classic is a very nice neutral color and top it off with just a little bit of “natural makeup” and she will definately look GORGEOUS!!!!

  • Heather says:

    The classic one looks better on her

  • Teresa Nguyen says:

    I think classic would be better!:)

  • Amanda says:

    100% Glam! It’s so much more intricate, flatters her figure and brings out her beauty, classic just blends in to the background.

  • zoe says:

    I think classic looks chic for your lovely mom.

  • Dao Tran says:

    I honestly think the classic would suit her more!

  • Natalya K says:

    Go for the glam. It looks super on her.

  • Kim says:

    The glamorous one. First look I was sold. It makes her look younger and makes her skin glow. :)
    Hope you choose on one.
    Congratulations on the wedding and practically everything! :))))
    xoxo :)

  • Bettyjo says:

    Personally, I enjoyed the classic dress more. I think that it gives her a better shape than the glamorous one.

  • lily says:

    i’m totally in love with the glamorous one <3

  • Liv says:

    The classical one, definitely!
    – Because it’s just a lot prettier.

  • Suzanne says:

    I think classic one looks nicer on her. Not too much, and it looks beautiful also. =D simply gorgeous!

  • Andrea says:


  • I adore the classic dress. I really like the sleeve on her in addition to the a-line shape skirt of the second one.

  • Susan says:

    Classic! It is gorgeous!!

  • Fabulous says:

    I think the classic, it looks very elegant!

  • Olga says:

    i like the glamorous one better (:

  • marifer says:

    classic looks more chic, and fits her body beautifully :)

  • Alexandria says:

    Definetly go for the classic! Especially if she did a happy dance and it moved you emotionally! Classic dress for a timeless beauty! :)

  • Helen says:

    I personally think the glamorous one looks better on her because it really brings out her
    nice features. It also makes her looks so much younger,mistaken her for your
    sister, haha 😀

  • Vanessa says:

    classic :)

  • Biviana Beas says:

    Classic. the material looks great on her <3

  • Loey says:

    Although she could pull a wardrobe change from ceremony to reception 😛

  • kelsey says:

    classic one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Andrea says:

    The Glamorous dress! <3

  • Diana says:

    Glamorous dress most def!! Looks amazing on her!!!

  • Sallyanne says:

    CLASSIC! the shape is much nicer on her :)

  • Jeannie says:

    GLAMOUROUS. it looks beautiful on her. :)

  • Delancy Nguyen says:

    They are both gorgeous but I feel that second dress or say the one on the right suits her more

  • Larn says:


  • Leii says:

    Classic it fits her well and really allows her to shine.

  • Soph says:

    The GLAM one for sure! She looks great!

  • Emalyn says:

    CLASSIC! The cut looks BEAUTIFUL on her!

  • Katherine says:

    The classic dress is just that – classic! It looks timeless and beautiful.

  • Karen says:


  • taylor says:


  • Huong says:

    The classic dress for the ceremony part & the glamorous one for the reception! In the ideal case the daughter just gets married once a lifetime so why not wearing both of them :)
    Good luck!!


  • Janette dill says:

    the second one is clearly the prettiest dress…classic and my sister works in a bridal boutique in new york on long island and she agrees with me…please pick the second one.

  • Bree says:


  • T says:

    Classic. Definitely.

  • Palesa says:

    glamorous dress

  • Romana says:

    I think the classic one is waay better, not just in the look but for a wedding it suits more :)

  • Dina says:

    I love the glamorous dress on her!

  • sharlene says:

    the one with ribbon looks good on her :)

  • Apple Joy says:

    Classic… She looks beautiful, as she already does, and it has a royal-esque to it. Definitely the classic <3

  • Karina Loya says:

    Totally go with the classic it’s very beautiful and suits her very well <3

  • Nhi says:

    CLASSIC! I think the bride’s mom should always wear classic and simple. For me the classic dress really reminds me of pureness. A mother’s pure love for their daughter. It’s absolutely beautiful!

  • lILY says:


  • JuJu says:

    Congratulations first of all ! :) in my opinion i would go with the GLAMOROUS dress ! it makes her look youthful !:)

  • Alici says:

    I find that she looks amazing in both dresses but I personally prefer the first one. 😉

  • Cristina says:

    Classic one!!! I like it better :) It’s not that crazy and it’s more classy, like you said :)

  • Lauren says:

    The One on the Right!

  • Valeria says:

    glamorous <3<3<3

  • Annie says:

    The classic!

  • SHani says:

    The Classic one fits best, but you’re mother is gorgeous in both. I think the classic one looks like a mother whos ready to give her daughter away (to your husbands). It simple yet elegant and it lets your mothers inner beauty sparkle.

  • Deni says:

    CLASSIC! Her body looks better

  • vinnie says:

    i think the classic dress fits her perfectly!

  • Maria Martinez says:

    The Classic! She looks so beautiful & this dress is perfect for her

  • K says:

    I think both dresses look great. The glamorous one stands out more, but the classic suits your mom better. I go with classic.

  • Heather says:

    Wear the classic for the wedding and the glamor for the reception! they both are a lot a like so it would be a cool transition during the day. Formal then party look!

  • Fatine says:

    classic! classic! classic!! :)

  • sophia ho says:

    classic and beautiful.

  • ชุม อุสสา says:

    GLAMOROUS!! Definitely!! Although she is gorgeous in both 😉

  • Lidiya says:


  • Celine says:

    CLASSIC FOR SURE!!! :) It looks so beautiful on her

  • Candy says:

    I think the classic one looks really elegant on her :)

  • Jill says:

    I think the Glamorous dress is gorgeous, but I would absolutely ADORE the classic one on my own mother, so I would go Classic. YOU’RE the one that is supposed to be the Glamorous one on your wedding day. She’s gonna be one classy mama, no matter what!

  • Nancy says:


  • Sydnee says:

    Classic for sure! I think she looks good in both but the Classic just seems more perfect for her! She looks like such a sweetie pie and Mama Lim looks like a very Classy Lady!

  • Leanne says:

    Classic! -And your mom is so cute! ><

  • Ami says:

    Glamorous! BECAUSE when other time will your mom ever wear a glamorous dress other than your very own wedding? I feel like she will always have other times to wear the classic anyway, so glam I say 😉

  • Elora says:

    The glamorous one for sure!! The classic makes her look older then she actually is to me.

  • Jenny says:

    The classic one extenuates your mom’s beauty more :) The first dress is nice as well, but I just think the second dress suits her more. Btw, you and your mom are so beautiful. Your mom looks like a 사모님!!!!~

  • Nicole says:

    I like the Classic one…

  • stephanie says:


  • Hannah says:

    Choose the classic, it’s soo beautiful and looks just lovely on your mother.

  • Mona says:

    Classic! I think she looks beautiful in both, but I really love the classic dress on her best.

  • Anna says:

    i like the classic dress (:

  • Leilani says:

    They both look GREAT on her, but I think the classic look matches her more!

  • Elena says:

    You two are a beautiful mother-daughter duet! I’m voting for the glamourous one – I think it makes Mama Lim shine, and not just because the dress is sparkly! xx

  • Kate says:

    I think both dresses are gorgeous! The classic seems to fit perfectly as it is but the glamorous one is… well… glamorous! And so beautiful! If you got it tailored correctly by taking it up and pulling it in at the waist and got rid of the bow and replaced it with a plain ribbon it would be absolutely perfect! But in the end, it’s up to your Mum and what she feels best in. She wants to feel like she is wearing the dress and not like the dress is wearing her! Good Luck :)

  • Anne says:

    Oh by the way, the classic one washes her out. Needs a little pop up color.

  • Anne says:

    Glamorous….. It needs a little alteration, though. Looks a little big on her. With regards to the bow, you can make it a little more subtle to match her delicate features.

  • Victoria says:

    Glam all the way!

  • Lilly says:

    glamorous!!! the cut of the sleeves really makes her arms look great and the glimmer in the fabric makes her skintone look more alive and healthy than the classic dress…though on the other hand it is your special day and you deserve to stand out…tough decision–good luck!

  • Wear the class one for the ceremony and then change to the other one for the reception and party away! 😀

  • Elle says:

    The glamorous one but with a different bow :)

  • Ammy says:

    I can deinitely see the family resemblance. :) And your mother looks beautiful in both dresses!
    Ammy x

  • Karlie says:

    At Chinese weddings, not only does the bride change into a few dresses throughout the banquet, the bride and groom’s mothers do the same too! (Although not quite as many as the bride of course haha). But yeah, so maybe your mama can change dresses throughout the evening too? =D

  • laura molina says:

    I love them both but I also think it depends the tone of the wedding.. is it a posh, party of the century type of wedding or is it sweet but intimate special day?

  • Anastasios says:

    Enjoy your time with your mum dear :) she looks great too!
    Can’t edit to see you as a stunning bride!!!!!

  • Esti U says:

    Love both dresses! Mama Lim looks absolutely radiant and super duper happy in both. I am a little inclined towards the classic, although it does depends on your flower arrangements/what other people such as bridesmaids are wearing :)
    both are gorgeous though! can see why it was such a tough decision, and you got both!

  • Shirley says:

    I think the CLASSIC looks best on her. Both dresses are gorgeous, with wonderful patterns
    however I believe that the glamorous one hides her lovely figure with the drapy-feel on the top. The second looks slimlined and more fitting, and really provides room for awesome accessories! I wish there was a combo between the two :) Your mom is very beautiful.

  • maggie says:

    the classic!

  • Martina V. says:

    glamorous – better fits for the wedding.
    your mama looks beautiful, like your older sister :) greetings for her

  • Sabine says:

    Your mother is so beautiful! And you look so much alike! She looks gorgeous in both dresses, but if I had to choose, I would choose the first one, because it’s for such a special, festive occasion. On the other hand, if the second one moved you that much, maybe that’s the better choice. Hmm difficult. I would like to say to her that she has to choose one and if she notices that she feels the slightest disapointment, go with the other one. Good luck choosing!

  • Jazmin says:

    I don’t know the glamorous makes her look younger but doesn’t fit as good as the classic one. Maybe the classic with the right accesories and styling (and you’re the expert) it could be fabulous!!!

  • Suzy says:

    I think the glamorous one looks better on her, it pops more=]

  • Tara Young says:

    I like the Glamorous Dress!

  • Chumi says:

    CLASSIc! che looks more classy in that one!

  • Erin says:

    GLAMOROUS!! Both are beautiful, but I think the neckline on the first makes it much more “wedding-y” and fancy. If you don’t like the bow (I kinda agree) maybe just switch it up to something a bit more simple? Your mom is adorable!!

  • Angela says:


  • hola says:

    maybe classic, but you have to add some really sparkling accessories, or a pop of color. Or maybe different waist belt :)

  • kit says:

    The second one is much better and is more age-appropriate. =)

  • Penny says:

    I think the glamourous one is a tad too much for the “mother of the bride”!
    But both dresses are very beautiful!

  • o. says:

    glamorous! She looks younger and prettier in it :) your mum’s beautiful

  • Miranda says:

    Classic for sure! i think it suits her body more, and is more flowy. And definitely more elegant, just like your mother!

  • melody says:

    The classic one. Definitely. Your Mommy’s body looks better in the second one ( i mean waist line) and it better fits Her skin because of matt. You and your Mommy are great person! It’s pleasure to look at You two guys! :)
    And, of course – congrats ! :)))

  • Andi says:

    Glamorus! The Classic one doesn’t look as “wedding-y” as the Glam one. But I agree about the bow. Could a smaller, custom made kimono style belt work better?

  • Swee says:


  • Eleonora says:

    glamorous! I think your mum is gorgeous with booth dresses but I the first one is special :)

  • A. says:

    The Classic 😀

  • Marie says:

    The first one is my favorite (so beautiful) but your mother seems to feel better in the second one …

  • Abi says:

    GLAMOROUS. It’s beautiful and fun but not over the top in my opinion. I’m all for the classics but the second dress looks too old…like a very old lady’s dress.

  • Your mom is adorable!!
    She looks like how a mom should look, sweet and approachable. I see many mom’s who try to look like their daughters. Your mom has grace.

  • DaPitts says:

    from these pics u present. she looks a lot more confident & happier w/ the glam one.

  • cristina says:

    i think the classic one is more pretty for her

  • Nadia says:

    I like more glamorous dress!!! kisses :))

  • Isabella Calabrese says:

    CLASSIC!!! It fits her beautifully, I love the length, and I just think the color and shape suits her. <3

  • Rachel Gonzalez says:

    glamorous! I think it looks better on her
