    I have never heard that moms are “supposed” to do any of those things. It’s a really nice dress and very MOB appropriate, I think.

    I think this is great! In all honesty, I always see the MOB wearing a short(er) dress..at or just below the knee. I’ve never seen a MOB wearing a long dress. I wouldn’t worry about the color…as long as it’s not black, I think it should be fine!

    I think it’s adorable!  I never heard that they have to wear something opposite of the bridesmaids.

    Depends on the formality of the wedding. About half the MOB dresses offered from major brands are knee length, so it’s not unusual at all. My mom wore a floor length dress but my Mother-In-Law wore a knee length dress similar to the one you posted. She would only be expected a to wear a long dress if you’re having a formal black tie wedding.

    I actually LOVE this dress and think it’s perfect for an MOB! I’d love to hear where your mom got it–I might suggest it to my own mom. The last dress she suggested for herself was white. Needless to say, it was quite awkward having to explain to my mom that only the bride is supposed to wear white.

    I love it! I’ve seen this dress on someone’s mom on the bee…but I don’t remember who. It actually hits low enough.

    My Mother-In-Law wore something similar. She is also about 5’1 and it looked great.

    I am a recent MOB and I wore a long dress only because I am very self conscious about my legs. But.. I love the dress your mom picked out! It’s beautiful!
