    Is there a logical reason as to why she would need two dresses?

    1 dress, for both of them. I think the MOB/G doesn’t really need two looks unless there is a daytime church wedding and a drag-out party nighttime reception. 😉

    Having a hard enough time finding one dress. I do not think we will even look for a potential second. She might wear a shawl/wrap though since she wants to hide her arms.

    Im not really sure why the MOB or MOG would need to have a different look for the reception than the ceremony…

    Guests (which parents fall into) do not change clothes. Brides do not change clothes either (unless they are Asian where costume changes are expected), neither do grooms. Each one of those outfits is expensive as it is without the fact that it will only be worn an hour at most if someone does change into something else. For most people, that is not worth the expense at all.

    It’s completely normal for the bride to change dresses, but the MOB AND Mother-In-Law should stick with what they have already. The attention should be focused on the bride’s change of dresses (if wanted), not what other’s have changed into. People need to remeber what and who the day is about!

    Hm, I would find that odd.  My MOB and MOG are one dress kind of guests!

    My mom is wearing one dress, but I think she’s wearing a bolero or something similar to the ceremony (since its in a church) that she’ll take off for the reception (since its outside and will be quite warm.)

    My Mother joked about having a wardrobe change in between the ceremony and reception.  Is this something that happens often?  If so I had no idea.  I’ve been to a zillion weddings and I’ve never seen it.

    Both mom’s will only be wearing 1 dress. My mom wanted a jacket for church that she can take off if she gets warm, but that’s about it.

    As a guest I might wear a sundress or soemthing more casual to church and then change into something more formal for the reception, but that’s about it.
