Hi Bees! My first post!
Is this an appropriate MOB dress? My mom looks great in it, so I lean towards yes, but I didn’t know if the lack of sleeves and/or straps was too much? Our wedding will be outside and it is not a religous ceremony. Thanks for your input everyone.

@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.

Thank you everyone! I greatly appreciate the input. My mom loved it when she tried it on, so seems like it’s a win-win. We’ll probably get a dark navy shawl just for the ceremony just in case. It also has optional spagetti straps, so I guess she could use those if she wanted. Thanks again!
