My mom is young , and all the dresses I have seen for mother of the bride look perfect for a 95 year old!! They are all so conservative and traditional looking.
Dont get me wrong, I dont want my mom in a see through dress, but can we get something modern??
Are there any good mother of bride designers???

Try this one…and also Jovani.http://www.jovani.com/evening-dresses-view-all.html
It also depends on her age as to what designer she’d prefer, as well as how much she wants to spend.

My mom wore a very modern and normal looking MOB dress! We found it at Nordstrom

Check out the Jordan line as well as the Jasmine lines. Both have great style and flair!

I’m bumping this for my mama, too. She’s at her wits’ end trying to find a normal looking dress.

Mine is wearing a cocktail dress she found at Macys as opposed to a “MOB” dress. She’s only 46 and in NO WAY matronly.

My Mom bought this dress, hers is a deep plum instead of navy.
She is going to be 57 at the wedding but she looks like she is in her early 40’s. She looked absolutely stunning in this dress.
She bought it at Macys.

I am 48 yrs old and my daughter just got married in Feb. I tried looking in the department stores, but they either didn’t have my size or a color I liked. So, I went to a bridal salon so I can order the dress I liked in the right size and color I wanted. I went to theknot.com and looked at different dress designers to see which styles I liked. Then I narrowed it down to the price I wanted to pay (no more than $400). Then I found the bridal shops in my area that carried them. It was a process, but I ended up with the perfect gown!

My mom got her dress at David’s Bridal, but it wasn’t a MOB dress, it was just a “party dress” and it looked awesome on her!

My mom wore a dress we found at DB… it looked GREAT on her!..this of course isn’t her but it definitely looked better than in the pic. It was so flattering to her figure and actually made her shape look better =)

my mom got a great knee-length raspberry satin dress at Macy’s. we’re going to add a brooch to it to jazz it up!

My mom bought an Anne Klein cocktail dress that looks fantastic on her. I think a big part of it is looking outside of the traditional MOB venues.
