My mom is looking for her dress/outfit and really doesn’t know what she wants and my FMIL is also debating what to wear, she’s a heavy woman who’s not very tall and NEVER dresses up. I’d love to see what your mothers wore!

@MsGinkgo: I’m looking forward to seeing what people’s moms wore, too! My mom is not a dress person, and wore a pant suit to my sister’s wedding. I imagine she’ll do the same for mine. 🙂

@DomesticDiva: I’m looking forward to posts as well. My mom is apple-shaped with giant bazooms so I’m hoping I’ll see some IRL photos of similar moms who look fab.

My mom is wearing something similar to the dress in the middle, except a few inches longer so its just above the knee.
She is 47 but looks 35 and would not be caught dead in anything even remotely matronly.

My Mom will be wearing this dress, she actually bought before I got my dress! She found it on sale and couldn’t pass up a deal. She said if I didn’t like it she would return it or find something else but I think it will work out very well.

@Ms_Purple: I could definitely see FMIL in something like this!

Mother of the Bride in blue. Mother of the Groom in gold. Both wore long dresses with jackets.

@adoc86: Your mom sounds like my mom! I couldn’t ever imagine her wearing the standard long dress, jacket combo that seems to be so common. I like the dress your mom is wearing!…. for myself.

My mom really didn’t want to look like an old mother of the bride. She’s wearing this dress (sorry it’s tiny)
FMIL is super daunted by shopping and hasn’t gotten a dress yet. I’ve been looking around for her. My favorite that I have found so far is this one

@Stephville: I love that dress!

@KC-2722: haha I know, I like it for myself, too!
When we were out shopping for her dress I would show her a more typical mother of the bride dress and she just looked at me and said, “you must be joking.” Can’t say I blame her though.

My mom is wearing this Mori Lee dress, but imagine a woman in her 60s wearing it, and not a model in her 20s :
