So my mother and I have been shopping for a mother of the bride dress and let me tell you it is tedious!!! My mom has a pretty nice figure. She is 57 but very young mentally. Everything is either too old ladish or too prom looking. We came across a Jovani dress… Black and silver… Sequins… my mother loved it and too be honest on her I love it too. The dress looks better on her than me and she is 27 yrs older than me! Most of my friends love it however, someone I know doesnt think it is “appropriate” because the top dips low. I would love everyones advice. I think she looks great. I would love everyones advice!! I am going to attach a picture… and of course she would have a shawl… By the way my bridal party is silver and black so i think the dress matches great as well.

I think it really depends on how formal your wedding is. Also how sparkely your wedding dress is. If it’s not too sparkely compared to your dress and not too dressy for the event then go for it!

It would be a little too “red carpet” for my wedding (meaning it would fit in better at the Oscars), but depending on what type of wedding you’re having, it might fit in nicely!

If this is a relatively formal evening wedding then I think it’s great, and kudos to your mom for being able to pull it off! She may want to have the top altered just a bit; I don’t think it is too low-cut, but tightening things up around the neckline would give just a little “boost” and make her ladies look a little perkier.
If it’s a daytime wedding or not-so-formal then it might be a bit much, not in the “too revealing” way but in that it might be a bit overdressed if the rest of the guests are in sundresses or business casual.

I like the dress and it fits her well, but I think it shows too much cleavage and isn’t really appropriate for a MOB.

If you love it, and she loves it, go for it!

I think it’s beautiful – if my mother looked THAT good in a dress like that, I would tell her to rock it! (But she’d never wear it..)

To answer some questions…I am having a very big wedding at Russos on the Bay in Howard Beach.it is a very formal evening wedding.
We were thinking if she chooses this dress to maybe have the cups alerted so they sit very flush to her and double sided tape lol

It’s too low cut for my taste, but she looks good!

i think its a beautiful dress, but i’ll agree that it could use a bit more coverage up top.

I think it looks great!!! And shes not hanging out inappropriately so with alterations I think she will be fine. My mom is in a similar boat.. She HATES the traditional MOB dresses and everything else screams prom. Shes having a very hard time finding a happy medium but congrats to your mom for finding it lol!
ETA: Being a fellow LI Bride I can also say that this dress works very well for a LI wedding.. GO FOR IT!! lol

@angelicd77: Thank you so much! I told my mom that finding her dress was harder than finding my wedding gown lol. Good luck to your mom on her dress search!
@Pinkmoon: Thank you!
