What color whould she wear it in? It is a pretty dress but what does your bridal dress look like? IMO it could pass for a bridal gown for a beach wedding or smaller wedding…

I think it’s a beautiful dress but I hate that it’s on a two-year-old model.

That’s really pretty, but it almost looks like a wedding dress.  What’s your dress look like?

I think that’s a gorgeous dress, just make sure it doesn’t rival your wedding gown and it needs to be a color (not that pale color of the picture).

My friend’s mom (who’s funky, thin, and youthful looking) wore a beautiful  lime green floor length dress. It fit her personality perfect and made the MOB dress not look so stuffy, but still made her look like the mother of the bride.

I think its fine for a MOB in her situation. Usually the dresses are more conservative with jackets. If she likes this then I’d say go for it. It appears to be a soft blue color so its not like she would like like a bride. You can always suggest she add a pashmina or shawl wrap too. Not many people can pull of a style like this, if she can rock it, more power to her!

I think its gorgeous, I personally odnt understand the concern of the dress outshinning yours since she is your mother.

I think it looks beautiful. And there is no way anyone can actually outshine the bride! It’s formal and fun and your mom seems to have a good body to be able to rock it.

Personally, I think she looks nice in it, but it’s a bit too much for a MOB. If it was plain at the bottom I’d like it better. That being said, if she loves it and is comfortable in it, give her the OK!

I think it’s a really beautiful dress, and your mom looks fantastic in it. I don’t think it will rival your dress at all. I say go for it.
