So… I need any suggestions you all may have about where to look find a mother of the bride dress. Before you start naming the usual department stores and bridal shops let me give you a little background.
My mother is very..unique. She loves shopping at thrift stores and wearing “hippie/natural” style clothing. I have been able to introduce to some more modern styles every now and then but unfortunately we are in different states and I cant shop with her. Neither of us want to go for the traditional “mother of the bride” matron-y style dresses, but rather something that she will feel beautiful in and still has a sense of her style (without looking cheap).
The wedding is in a few months and it will be on the beach. Its going to be pretty small (no more than 50 people) and everyone is family. It will be very intimate and somewhat casual. The wedding color is purple so Id love to find a lighter shade purple dress (bridesmaids are in darker purple) for my mom. Also, we’re on a budget so affordablilty is most important.
If anyone has any advice or ideas/pictures of dresses I love your input! Thanks!
