My mom wore a Mori Lee dress in my brother’s wedding and it was lovely — it was supposed to be a bridesmaid’s dress, but she had it made floor-length so it was perfect.  No one ever would have known that it wasn’t a designated "Mother of the Groom" dress.  Plus the pricetag was much better and she had more colors to choose from!

I think you should stick to wearing a dark tone of any color….. eggplant, forest green, burgundy, etc.  Although you like lighter colors, you do want to somewhat blend in with the rest of the crew.  Any dark color should accomplish that.

Good luck!

I think it’s totally fine to wear a bridesmaid dress, but make sure it’s not the same one or the same colour as the bridesmaids in the wedding.  I agree with you that lots of MOG and MOB dresses are pretty awful and dowdy-looking though.  You could also try just regular formal dresses or cocktail dresses that are not designated "mother of bride" or "mother of groom" outfits.

In terms of colour, I would simply avoid anything that would clash badly with the wedding colours.  I would think if the colours being used are black, brown, and navy, then wearing blue would be great!  Yellow could work but might be a bit bright.  Honestly though, the only colours I think you should avoid at all costs are any shade of red or purple.  Those would clash quite badly.

Not all short dresses are also available in long, but many of the bridesmaid lines have this option, even if they don’t advertise it.  Check out some bridal shops and ask around which designers have those options.  You can also usually order extra material for a small fee if you think you want to have a wrap or little jacket made to coordinate!
