My mom wants to procure a purple dress for our nautical themed and colored wedding (navy blue, white/ivory, with bits of red, brown, various blues, and green thrown in). She and I are going dress shopping together in January and, if that fails, again in May or June. I have no idea where to begin!
She said she wants a purple, mid-length (longer then knee but shoter then touching the floor) dress which is Not a typical MOB dress, she does Not want to look matronly, nor “like she’s in her 80’s.” While my mom used to have quite the figure, middle age (late 40’s) has finally caught her and taken her form a short skinny stick to short n plump (not fat, just plump). Having not seen her in anything other then baggy sweat shirts and lose jeans for years now, I’ve no idea if she’s still rocking her old curves!
Hive- please help by posting pictures and/or comments about purples dresses and/or MOB dresses! Thanks!

Because I am searching for MOB dress too, so I am sharing some of my saved here with you. I bought my wedding dresses from trustedeal, and they provide purple color for each MOB style they provide, so you may take a look at their site and see whether get anything: http://www.trustedeal.com/Wholesale-Mother-of-Bride-Dresses_c338.html
I got a 15% off coupon from them, so if you want it, let me know.

@Linda82- I really like the first two! I have never in my life seen my mom in a strapless dress, so I’ve no idea if she can pull it off, but I’m definately going to look at that website! Thanks! 😀
@i have never heard of Style Shop! What’s it about?
That first one is too short. My mom is very against anything knee length or shorter. I like it though! Heh.
LOVE dress #2! Not sure if my mom would find the front too older-lady-esque though. i’ll have to run it by her! (it also has a bit of the same styling as my own dress, so that’d be cool). And the price, it’s right!
i like number 3 personally, but again, maybe too short. Love those wrap tops!
Four is great! My Fiance doesn’t like the skirt on it though and not sure how my mom will take it.
Five is again too short. All the bunching at the waist might make my mom look a bit thick (although I could be wrong.)
Love #6! Not sure if the color would be as awesome in person, but its such a pretty dress!
Thanks for all the help! Some great ideas so far!

Alfred Angelo also has some really cute purple dresses! I love their dresses so I’m a bit partial but they definitely have some purples. 🙂

@ereeka80- Love those two dresses! My mom lives in the deep north woods of Wisconsin, no where near decent or high end shops. Heck, I don’t even think there is a Nordstroms anywhere in Milwaukee! 🙂 However, Love their dresses! Maybe I can convince my mom to order online instead of getting it physically in a store? But this is the same woman who doesn’t have e-mail because she “can’t use that internet.” heh. Maybe I’ll be able to talk her around… 😀
@joeyBloom- I will definately watch that tomorrow (after work and our New Year’s Eve Party)! Thanks!
@Simmonsgirl1- I have AA saved for their Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, as a possiblity, I will head over there and check out their MOB dresses too! Thanks!

I am going with these styles for bridesmaids, they are both Jasmine Belsoie and can be ordered full length or tea length.
