    @boboJ:  As long as your mom likes it and feels comfortable in it, that’s all that matters!

    My mom is also wearing a strapless dress.  She will have a pashmina or cardigan of some kind to wear with it too.  

    Here is her dress from David’s Bridal:

    @boboJ:  If you’re concerned about modesty, then consider a shawl for the ceremony that she can take off for the reception if she wants.

    @boboJ:  I think it’s totally appropriate so if your mother loves it and can rock it then go for it! Unless there is any reason SHE would be uncomfortable with a strapless dress then I don’t see a need to worry about it.

    @boboJ:  That dress is beautiful! I agree with PP, as long as your mom is comfortable wearing it, I see no reason why it wouldn’t be appropriate.

    I LIKE IT ! Depends on your mom’s age though… if she is much older I would lean towards straps

    I know both our mothers would not feel comfortable in a strapless dress but I see nothing wrong with it.  More power to her!

    @boboJ:  If your Mom looks good in that and feels comfortable in that she should go for it. I think’s it’s lovely.

    Hahah as someone that started a thread with the same title I would have to give a resounding yes.  The dress is lovely, elegant, and not dowdy.  Your mom will look beautiful.

    my mom is wearing a halter style dress – I think she’s going ot get a pasmina or something to cover her shoulders in case she’s cold but she looks great it in.
