my mother will most likely be making her own, along with the flower girl dress. she was going to make my dress, but i found one i loved.

has she looked at a macy’s, nordstrom, or lord & taylor store? most big chain department stores have formal dresses.

My mom got hers at a local boutqiue…and my mother-in-law ordered hers from Europe, apparently.  Just have your mom look around in different stores.  Where are you from?

@engleman10513:  My mom is plus size and got hers from Jessica London. 


MIL bought hers at the shop we got BM dresses from, not sure what brand it was.  I highly recommended Jessica London, great prices!!

My mom got hers from Nordstrom.  She didn’t want the “usual” MOB dress (neutral color, skirt separates kind of thing).  So it just came from the normal “formal dress” section.  It’s coral!

FI’s mom is having a harder time with things..she might go with a dress from Macy’s though.

My mom found hers at Nordstrom but bought it from Lord and Taylor. They almost always have a coupon, where Nordstrom never does. FMIL bought hers at Macy’s!

My mom found her dress at David’s Bridal. She wanted something knee length and fun. My mom is heavy, and the fact that she was able to find a dress there that she liked made her very happy. She looked fantastic that day!!
