    I think it really depends on how formal your wedding party is.  Are the BMs dresses short?  What is your Future Mother-In-Law wearing?  If it’s comparable, I say go for that dress!

    I think it is perfect for a garden wedding!

    I think it looks a little young for a MOB, honestly.  It looks like something I’d wear now, not at 50.  But that’s just my opinion.  It’s a cute dress, though!

    I love it! Where is it from? As long as your mom loves it and it is her style she will look great! My mom also does not love the traditional mother of the bride dresses so we are getting her a bridesmaid dress (that obviously does not match the other girls’ dresses!)

    I do like it but maybe too white? Is it avaialble in another colour?

    @abbie017:  I agree, it looks a bit young to me, but it all depends on what your mom wants and is comfortable with. But just be aware that she may look out of place depending on what your Future Mother-In-Law wears, since she may not be comfortable going for something so young looking.

    I don’t like it as a MOB dress. The style is too young and it doesn’t feel formal enough.

    Its kind of twee for me. Looks like something a young girl would wear. Its also a little too white.

    I love it and don’t think it looks “too young” at all. It’s perfectly appropriate. Nice find!

    I think if it fits into the feel of your wedding, go for it! This is the type of dress my mom could very much rock. She is young for her age but not in a “I’m trying to act like I’m 20” sort of way but in a “aging with serious class” kind of way.

    My mom absolutely hates the look of the traditional MOB dress. Frankly, I do too. They are just too matronly for my mom! My point is that we will be looking for something similar to this for her as well. Probably a bit more formal but definitely nothing like what you typically see. I think that if it suits the style of your wedding and your mom is comfortable in it.. you should go for it!

    GO FOR IT! I personally think MOB dresses look like great-grand-MOB dresses. My mom picked out two dresses that are supposed to be bridesmaid dresses and the consultant told us that more and more moms are doing that. If she looks good in it, you like it and she likes it, then who cares what everyone else thinks – just my 2 cents 🙂
