My mom got this one from JcPenney… pretty cheap, but it actually looks really nice on her!

I told my mom that I wanted her to wear whatever she felt the most fabulous in, so her dress is not exactly a traditional MOB dress, nor did it match any of my colors, but I thought she looked amazing! (It has thin straps, with a matching shawl that is falling off one of her shoulders)

@DaneLady: I need to check the tag… she got it on clearance at the bridal salon where I got my dress.  The funiest part is that I think she paid 4x as much for her shoes and bag as she did for the dress!  lol

Oh man, MOB dresses.  This was so tough for my mom, as she didn’t like how she looked in anything! Her final choice was from Jessica McClintock, believe it or not!  My main color was also blue, the color my bridesmaids wore.  Here’s my sister walking Mom down the aisle:

@adnama: Haha!  We are definitely built almost exactly alike and have similar features, but I have the darker coloring of my dad’s side of the family.

Here’s my mom.  I initially thought this dress was terrible, that the color would clash with everything (my wedding colors were deep red accented with some bright orange) and that it showed too much skin for a 50 year old woman.  But looking back I love her choice, she looked (and felt) great, with just the right amount of stylishness and she stood out as a guest of honor.
