My mother is buying a bridesmaid dress. We looked at MOB dresses but they all seemed to old. My mom doesn’t look her age at all (she has great genetics that I hope I inherited lol) so I wanted to get her a dress that looks mature without looking old. All the formal/prom dresses were too young though. So I gave her this Bill Levkoff Bridesmaid or Best Man dress to try on and we loved it! It fit perfectly, like it was made for her. The back has a low “V” so it gives the dress a little sexiness without looking to risque for a mom lol. I ordered the applique that is photoshopped onto the waistband in this picture and I’m having it sewn on by my seamstress.

 

 

Definitely make it fun! I set up an appointment at a bridal salon for my mom to try on dresses. I even sat on the couch and made her get up on the pedastool and model every dress in the mirror. I think she really enjoyed it and it made her feel special!

ETA: my mom’s dress will be in the Navy color shown. This is my bridesmaid’s dress. They will be in red.

It took my mom forever to find a dress. She wanted to go short, not long. We found that most dresses were either too young ie strapless and lower cut or very grandmaish. She finally found a Jasmine dress she really liked in a silver color. She won’t let me post the picture of her in it. But we are both very happy with it. My Future Mother-In-Law is having the same trouble and still hasn’t found anything. I think maybe the bridesmaid dress is a good option
