ohh I’m interested in this as well…

My mother in-law called me and told me she found a dress that is black and has a white top… NOT OKAY! I’m a firm believer that only the bride should be in White (even if someone else’s dress has some white in it…)

ALSO I just watched my sister’s wedding video (I was 15 when she was married) and MY MOTHER was wearing cream/white!!! Seriously mom?!?!? I have already told her that she will not be wearing cream/white to my wedding! hahah am I crazy??!?!?

I believe all of the MOB/MOG in our wedding got their dresses from chain stores.  My mom’s (the blue one) came from a Canadian chain store called Laura, and she got it on sale for around $80 I think!  Our wedding was outdoors in summer, hence them all wearing short dresses.

Both spent around $150 each.

They’re both pretty young and up with the times, and dress adorably IRL so their dresses really reflect that.


My mom’s is actually a bridesmaid’s dress from DB.

Style F14010 in Horizon:


MOG’s (except in a bright purple)

My mom still needs to get some alterations done, and will obviously be wearing a different bra, but here is hers – I love it and think she looks beautiful in it!  MOG will also be wearing an ivory-colored dress.  Not worth arguing.  I told her it looks beautiful and she can wear whatever she likes.

MOG hasn’t chosen her dress yet but my mom is wearing J Crew’s Cecelia

The color we chose is rich plum, which is a really pretty purple-wine color. We got it on sale for about $100.

I wore this in quartz for one wedding. It was over $500.

I wore this in the other wedding. It was $650.

MOG wore long in a raspberry color,strapless and it was $400. I’ll see if I can find a picture.

Here’s pictures from both weddings, of us in our dresses. I’m in brown and the black & white, and MOG is in raspberry.

Here are the MOG/MOB gowns from our wedding! Please keep in mind that our MOB/MOG spent a bit more money on their gowns because they decided to wear the same gown to our two weddings and another evening reception (married once in the US and had another ceremony and reception in Japan). So, the gowns had to be dry cleaned three times and worn three times.

(Black, white, and crimson color scheme…)

MOB gown was floor length, black chiffon with a natural waist, asymmetric draped bodice and slight sweetheart neckline with chiffon capped sleeves. The gown was custom made and she spent about $500, which included the 7 alteration consultations it took to get the gown right because she lost 15 in the last three months leading up to the wedding.


MOG wore a floor length, black satin faced taffeta, drop waist, pleated bodice, sweetheart neckline, strapless gown with a bejeweled chiffon bolero. (MOG spent about $500 and got her gown online. http://www.bestforbride.com/mothers.html)

My mother will be 85 on February 23rd. I am 40, and have waited forever to get married. I am so happy she is going to be here for our wedding! I posted this once before so my apology for the repeat. 

The dress is Adrienne Pappell and I believe is a Tadashi copy. It looks fantastic on many body shapes and ages. It also comes in 10 million colors! 🙂 Check Nordstroms, Macys, etc.
