Both my mom and my stepmom will probably wear pants!  I think the last time I saw my mom in a skirt or a dress was 1987.  She hates her legs and is just more comfortable in pants. She has some flowy black pants that are fairly dressy, and I expect she’ll wear them with a nice blouse and jacket and jewelry.

I think my stepmom wants to wear loose linen pants, which are a little too casual IMO, but I don’t care enough to make a fuss about it.

Edit: I think you’ll have more luck looking at a good department store than on bridal websites.  Nordstrom’s or Macy’s will have plenty of formal occasion pantsuits, mainly aimed at middle-aged or older women. And in my opinion, they look better than most specifically-MOB dresses.

I’d stick with department stores or a nice womens boutique in your area.  There have got to be a ton of nice women’s boutique in your area.   That is where we have had luck.  My FMIL decided to get hers custom made.  She will pick out the fabric and the design and have a seamstress make it.
