Hmmmm…it seems like a really sexy dress! Would it be age appropriate? Let her know she doesnt have to wear a potato sack dress as MOB but maybe something that doesnt show so much skin.

My mom is wearing something a bit more “mommish” ha I think it’s an “Alex” dress? I believe thats who designed it, but I could be wrong. 

Either way, it’s probably up to you and your mom. My mom didn’t want as much skin exposed as, say, my bridesmaids…so her dress is drastically different. It also has much more detail on it, which is something she also wanted. And has a traditional “MOB” jacket to go over it…so she’s looking a bit more mom-ish, but I think thats what she wanted. 

If thats what you and your mom would love for her to wear, then go for it! I know that might not be as helpful as what you’re looking for 🙂 but it’s some input at least!

It looks a little more like a bridesmaid dress than a MOB dress. Are you okay with her wearing it, or would you like her to wear something more traditional?

I would think that as MOB that dress is a little too similar to the other Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses.

It kinda reminds me of a dress a teenager would wear to there prom… Im not too sure its age appropriate…

 i know my mom would never wear it.. and shes just as skinny as the model!

Maybe if she added a jacket or shrug it wouldn’t look so similar and it would make both people happy?  That’s a tough situation!

I think it need something added to make it look more formal.

I don’t think it’s too formal, but I do think it’s too revealing and not age appropriate, unless your mom is younger than 45. Like someone above said, see if you can get her to add a jacket that she would wear at least for the ceremony. It could even be sheer.

Okay, I know this is an unpopular opinion, but … she’s your mom! respect her, she raised *you*! If she wants to wear something that makes her feel sexy, why can’t she? Nothing is going to distract from how young and beautiful you are! I say, let the woman be happy and confident even if you think it’s “inappropriate.”

Im voting for the second one! so elegant. The wider straps making it more age appropriate and classy!
