Nordstrom has some nice suited outdfits that involve a long skirt and a matching jacket, all in silk or taffeta or the like. Take a look there.

JC Penney’s actually has some cute stuff in the $100 range.

Not shorts — unless you mean below-the-knee shorts! =)

She could always get a nice floor- or tea-length dress that is considered "fashion forward" and also get a pretty shrug or other such jacket. =) I have cousins that are LDS, and that would be fine for them to wear.

As for cost…check out department stores. Sears, Winners, etc. They usually have a nice selection, at low cost. =)

Here’s pictures of my mom and my Mother-In-Law on the wedding day. I think they both had very nice dresses on (my MIL’s was maybe more fashion forward) that cost under $200. Both of them got their dresses at Dillard’s. If you don’t have a Dillard’s nearby, you might also want to check their website.  In fact, here’s a link to women’s jacket/set dresses for all around or under $200.

It’s not going to be Vera Wang or something, but I’m sure she will look just as nice as the rest of your family!

Do you have a Dress Barn in your area? I’ve noticed that they’ve really modernized they’re styles. I just recently bought my rehearsal dinner and after party dresses there. The prices are quite reasonable.

Check out some dresses by Jade. They’re pretty reasonable, and I know some of them are very consertative with high necklines and jackets.

I’d probably suggest looking at department stores like Nordstrom or Dillards or Ann Taylor. I think that if you want something more fashion forward a tea-length dress with a cardigan is a very great choice (Michelle Obama has brought the cardigan back in style!!)
