Am I the only one that really doesn’t like most mother of the bride dresses? My mom hates them even worse than I do. She is younger, so she doesn’t want to wear a traditional dress, but she’s old enough that she doesn’t want to wear something TOO young and look ridiculous.
I’m going to send her this to see what she thinks:
I don’t think its too light (right?) and blush is one of our wedding colors. Plus its a 1920s-ish theme so am I wrong in thinking its a bit… art nouveau?
What did your mom/mother in law wear that wasn’t so traditional?

That’s beautiful, the MOB shapeless dress and matching bolero isn’t my thing.

@ccantics: I think its beautiful… my mom said she would not wear a long dress, which was fine, i pick my battles and this one wasn’t one i needed to win… she found a great find at Macy’s…basically a sheath dress with lace overlay… she looked great and i don’t think it was a “traditional” MOB dress.

Oooh I like that! I’m planning to just go shopping with my mom next summer and help her pick out a flattering sundress.

I hate traditional MOB dresses too! They can look so matronly. My mom will be wearing a beautiful knee-length dress with sparkly lace sleeves.

it’s gorgeous – I’m kind of wishing my mom was wearing something like that – I’m worried she’s getting too dressed up!

my mom is wearing a long chiffon gown that probably could be for a Bridesmaid or Best Man… she’s 58 and looks great and she’s so happy in her dress!!! I think it’s really the mom’s personal style

I think it’s really pretty! It’ll be prefect for your wedding theme and season! My mom really doesn’t like the traditional MOB dress. She’ll be wearing a flowy tea length sundress.
