I'm starting to worry. Am mother of the groom - wedding in CA 8/31/03. Any suggestions where the best places are in Northern VA or greater DC area for fashionable long dresses. Was discouraged in 3 bridal shops so far -- samples on rack are size 8 or 10. I am 14-16 and can't even try them on. I want a youthful look - prefer jacket and long skirt. Any suggestions? Thanks folks.

A good place to check might be Claire Dratch on Wisconsin Ave. in DC. The only problems there - they are snoby and pricey. But lovely dresses and such. Good luck!

My mother found a beautiful two-piece Scott McClintock silk shantung dress for my wedding at Lord & Taylor. Definitely check there; they always have beautiful things.

I second Lord and Taylor- that's where my mom found her dress. Also, check Mae's in McLean on Old Dominion Drive. It's a fancy dress shop.
