both of my moms wore typical MOB/MOG dress with the jackets.  They were both more comforable in them…from J.C. Penneys and Macy’s I believe.

Wow your Mommy’s look great!  My Mother’s having a hard time looking at dresses.  She’s just not sure what she’d like to wear.  She’s a young hot Mom but wants to dress like she’s 80.  And my fiance’s Mom has had her dress for a year, lol.  Just a simple black dress, no pics though.

@Redeened Rebekah – That is a gorgeous dress and I love the neckline.  That is kind of what i picture my mom in.  Where did you find that picture?

My mom’s dress was from a Macy’s flagship and his mom’s dress was a Jasmine Couture MOB dress or something. She tried for months to find something affordable and finally said screw it, lol.

Great thread. I feel like my mom also picks things that make her look older and frumpy but she hates her arms and refuses to wear anything above elbow length (not just for the wedding this is a daily rule). This pretty much means she’ll get the typical dress and jacket combo which is fine but I want to help her find a cute version that comes in navy.

My mom had no interest in wearing a traditional MOB dress, I told her that was fine but I did not want her wearing what she wore to my brother’s wedding – a short dress, black with tiny white polka dots, strapless with a very poofy skirt.  He got married in Vegas, so fine, but mine is slightly more traditional.  So then she went around telling everyone I “made” her wear a certain dress.  LOL!  She ended up getting a simple dress at Banana Republic.  She wanted to shorten it but luckily we talked her out of it – it is already knee length!  She is only mid-50s and very attractive but sometimes she dresses too young. πŸ™‚

FI’s mom wearing a traditional mother’s dress, she is mid-70s and never wears dresses.  Both will look awesome, as will my stepmom.  All different colors – tan, brown, and eggplant.

I dread this shopping trip with both my mom and my FMIL! I get the feeling they’re both going to get something really just wrong for them… especially FMIL! She has a tendency to dress kinda matronly.
