My Maid/Matron of Honor (and only attendant) is a good bit older than me. She’s my best friend, so of course I want her in the wedding! Only problem is, she’s stressing about what she’s going to wear. She doesn’t like showing her legs-getting her in a long skirt might even be an issue! I’ve looked at mother of the bride outfits, but most of them are a)dresses and b)too matronly. Does anyone have any ideas on how we can accomplish this? FYI, her son is getting married a month later in a destination wedding in Mexico, so if possible, I was thinking that it would be something she could wear to that as well.

You ddin’t say what your colors are, but maybe this would work for your wedding and for something in Mexico. This is also really pretty in the brown. Here are also some great flowy options that are flattering, long, and would be pretty flowing in the breeze at your wedding and while she is in Mexico: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/long-flowy-bm-dresses-around-200

I think a chiffon, floor length dress would work well. There are lots of pretty options. You can go to brides.com – dresses – MOB – and narrow by fabric – chiffon. That should give you lots of options.
