I recently went shopping with my mom for a dress for her to wear to my wedding. So many of the mother of the bride dresses were too drab and “frumpy”. If we found a dress we liked it usually only came in muted or pastel colors. My mom looks great in coral, so we were trying to find a dress in that color. My wedding is in the summer, and it’s more of a garden-y wedding, so I’m not worried about the color being too bright. The ceremony is outside and the reception is indoor/outdoor. My bridesmaids are wearing a strapless clover green long dress. My fiance’s mom already got a dress. It’s long, teal colored (not exactly sure how dark/light/bright of a teal), and it has layers or tiers of ruffles. Her dress also comes with a jacket.
My mom & I went to one shop and they said that a lot of moms actually look in the bridesmaid section because there’s a much wider range of colors to choose from. So we went this route. She tried one on, and it looked great on her! It was a one shoulder chiffon gown. I want to get opinions though. Does this dress look too bridesmaid-y? It’s shown in black, but she would get it in a coral color.

Welcome to the boards!
I have seen a lot of MOB/MOG’s on here go the bridesmaid dress route for the same reason. I think it would be fine for a summer wedding.

I love that dress! I think it would be great as a MOB dress. 🙂

It looks georgous, but the pic makes me laugh… if they are trying to advertise the dress why do they show only 10% of it. I have found this endlessly frustrating when looking at bridal gowns and Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses on line… your model is great, but I WANT TO SEE THE DRESS!!!
But I think it’s great, your mom should get to look and feel fabulous.

If you click on alternate views you can see the whole dress. You can even see the back of the dress. This dress actually did a great job of covering my mom’s chest, too. I was really surprised by how low cut some of the mother of the bride dresses were. This covered her up, but was still very cute at the same time. The bridesmaid dresses are also made of chiffon. I’ve pasted the link to their dress below. It’s shown in navy, but we ordered it in clover. Do you think my mom’s dress would still not look too bridesmaid-y next to this dress?

That’s a really nice dress! It will be a different colour and style than the other bridesmaid dresses so I’m sure no one will confuse them or anything. I say go for it if she likes it!
