    It is beautiful but something about it as a MOB dress doesn’t feel right.  It would be a no go to me.

    If YOU love it, and SHE loves it, then who cares what anyone else thinks??? Go for it!

    Personally I think its a little too flashy & will take away from you.

    Anyone who says it’s inapropriate is expecting her to dress motherly or frumpy, or they’re being judgemental. She looks fantastic and nothing will take away attention fom you on your wedding day. 

    This is a big day for her as well, and she should feel beautiful. She should absolutely wear it, especially if you both love it.

    I dont find it motherly at all. plus its black and the sparkle is also strange for a wedding MOB. I suggest a different color, not as reveiling and less bling.

    I like the first dress on your mum too. I’m going for an evening wedding and my mum has chosen her dress (also very red carpet) when she was shopping with my sister… I haven’t seen it on but I bet she looks amazing! She’s 55 btw.

    if you don’t feel like it will take away from your dress and it’s appropriate for the level of glamour for the affair (which it seems like check and check!) then she should rock it out. I’m happy to see 50+ ladies looking hot because I hope that’s me someday! And everybody should get to feel glam and beautiful! It’s your day, but moms are very invested and excited too! And should get their glamour moment as well if that’s their personality!

    The only thing I might change is take the straps up about an inch. Would probably be more flattering proportionally.

    both dresses are gorgeous! I’m very jealous of your mom, she looks better than I do and I’m 21! ๐Ÿ™‚ Great picks though, glad you found something.
