@mvg120:  have you tried Macy’s or JCPenney? My FMIL looked there as well as other “regular” stores in the mall and found a few very nice and fairly priced dresses that she is now deciding between 🙂

My mom got hers on sale at JCPenney. FMIL also said there were nice dresses at Dillards online.

My mom just found a cute dress from wherever she normally shops.  It’s a bit more casual than I thought she would do, but frankly, I really don’t care what she wears 🙂

My mom bought her dress at Nordstrom, my husband’s mom got hers at Macy’s.  I think they were a little over that budget but you usually can find decent sales at Macy’s and David’s Bridal has good sales too.  You can check out Dress Barn and Kohl’s too, they may be more in that price range.

Are MOB dresses normally full length?  Is it weird that my mom’s isnt? lol. but my BM dresses are short too.

We got my FI’s mother’s dress at Macy’s. It was originally $180 on sale for $48!! It’s 3/4 length sleeve and goes right below the knee. My mom got hers at Nordstrom but it was much more expensive.

@mvg120:  my mom bought a Lazaro bridesmaids dress the other day for her dress. It was like mid-200s, but definitely cheaper than the regular mother of the bride dresses.

@loving_life:  No they don’t have to be full length, usually they just need to match the formalness of everyone else.  My bridesmaids wore long dress, groomsmen in tuxes, so the mothers were both in floor length gowns because it was formal.

@mvg120:  We found my grandmother’s dress at Dillards. My mother is deceased so she was basically standing in for my mother.
