Bees I need your help!
Do you think that Jovani’s 253846 is too much for a Mother of the Bride dress??? There is concern that her dress may clash with the bride? What do you think? The bride is wearing casablanca 1957
We are having about 140 guests and the ceremony is in a church with a formal reception and served dinner….
Thank you for your help!!!
Attached are photos of the MOB dress and the casablanca dress

It’s a beautiful dress, but it does look a little over the top. It looks a lot like a wedding dress.

The MOB dress is beautiful, but personally I think that it looks even more extravagant than the wedding dress (which is also beautiful)! I would definitely tone it down a bit for the MOB dress.

I’m usually pretty laid back about what the MOBs wear. And questions that arise from brides regarding the MOB dress. However, I do have to say, I think the dress is a bit much. Probably because it’s a mermaid style with a lot of sparkle and detail? Perhaps if it was a different color it would work better?

Looking at pictures, I was actually searching for what could be the MOB dress – both look like wedding dresses to me.

The MOB looks lovely, but looks like a wedding dress to me too. Does it seem weird to anyone else that the “mother” models are all of like 25 years old – tops!!! LOL

It looks like a wedding dress! I wasn’t sure which one was yours at first.

Whoa! Way to much like the wedding dress.

There was the possibility of taking off the side sash/pillow and leaving it at that with an even hem on the bottom…
Thanks for your opinions!

It looks too much like a wedding dress. Even if you took off the side sash/pillow and made the hem even on the bottom, it looks way too much like a wedding dress.

While the MOB dress is very pretty, it’s too much for your wedding day. It looks too much like a wedding gown.

WAY too much! I honestly think MOB dress should be more understated. Or, if MOB wants to wear a dress that is long and fancy, she should pick a color that is not similar to a wedding gown color. Is your wedding black tie? If it’s not, then perhaps MOB would be better suited to wear something cocktail length.
I think for September, colors for MOB such as jewel tones, or even a dusty blue would be lovely. Perhaps you should steer her away from shopping “wedding shops” and instead have her check out the formal gown section of department stores? I personally think that places like Saks, Nordstrom, etc have lovely evening gowns that are perfectly suited to MOB.

Okay I actually considered that dress as a wedding dress! So it’s way too over the top for the MOB plus the color doesn’t help much – if it were a dark color I’d have less of a problem with it.
