Elegant Grandmother of the Bride or Groom Dresses

However, that doesn't mean that everyone else involved in the big day bridesmaids, guests, parents, flower girls can be placed on the backburner. No matter how large or small your ceremony is going to be, those in attendance are sure to put their best foot forward when it comes to wardrobe; more specifically, the grandmothers of the bride and groom.
