My mom, in the dark purple, got her dress from Macy’s. 

My MIL, in the red, got her’s from a thrift store. It looked great on her, but I could have strangled her for wearing the same color dress as my bridesmaids… I’m still not completely over that 😐.

My mom got her dress at Kohls. They don’t have much selection in stores, but they have a lot online.

My mom wore a montage gown from the same store as my bridal gown. It was beautiful and structured and we had a seamstress through the store.

litebrite249 :  nordstrom. she got a full length beaded grey adrianna pappell gown (my mom also loves talbots lol). all the bridesmaids were in mismatched adrianna pappell beaded gowns, so it blended with the style of the wedding party while being a different color (BMs were blush). bonus is that nordstrom does free returns, so no worries about purchasing, trying it out, and then deciding it’s not for her.

litebrite249 :  My mom loves fashion.  She went to Saks and is getting a custom made Carolina Herrera dress.  It’s pricey, but she’s thrilled.  Personally, I despise typical MOB dresses.  I’m more into a nice evening gown from a nice department store.

My mom got her dress from light in the box.  We took a gamble on it and it was stunning!

My mom bought her first dress from Nordstrom, then returned it, then a second dress from Lord and Taylor and also returned it, then a third dress from Overstock that she wound up wearing and loved.

My mom got hers from Nordstrom. My MIL had hers made for her because she didn’t like anything she tried from stores. Both looked fabulous.

Both mothers got their dresses made for them at local dress shops.

My mom got hers from David’s Bridal. She saw one she really liked when my sister was getting her bridesmaid dress, so she bought it. My FMIL got her dress from Kohl’s.

My mom had hers custom made and my MIL got hers from nordstroms. Your mom might want to do what my MIL did. She shopped online at places like Nordstroms, saks, dillards, Macy’s, lord and Taylor’s etc. They all seemed to have easy hassle free return policies.

My mom got hers from Melanie Lyne. Actually, most of my BM’s moms I invited got their dresses them there! We had a more casual wedding though but they did have a selection of more formal dresses.
