My mom will be wearing this beautiful dress to my wedding in two months. She absolutely loves it, and she got it at Macy’s on sale for about $70!

My mom is wearing this dress from J Crew. The color looks red on my monitor but it’s actually a gorgeous plum color, which ties in with my BMs without being an exact match.

@iheartnerds: This was my mom’s second pick! It’s a really beautiful dress! 🙂

My mom found a beautiful dress at Nordstrom’s that is very similar to the J. Crew Cecilia iheartnerds just posted. It was affordable, modest, and very appropriate for a MOB without being too matronly. They have a lot of great choices on their website, so it might be worth her checking out!

I am so glad you posted this thread.

I will be keeping an eye on it for something that appeals to me because as some of you may know, my wedding is over; however, because of the wedding, her beau was inspired to propose to her, so I am now looking for a MOB dress that would be apprprate to wear to her wedding.

I am having a more difficult time finding a dress to wear to her wedding than I had looking for my gown. Isn’t that sad? I think it is… Oh well.

I hope you are able to find some inspration from this post for your mom, and I hope I do too 🙂

@noritake22: It’s sad, but you are SO NOT alone in your plight! My mom was way more stressed about her dress than I was regarding my gown, but there are so few choices for moms who aren’t stick-thin. It’s so silly.

My mom was also stressed about her dress. She ended up finding the perfect one at a bridal salon. My bridesmaids dresses are a plum color, and she is wearing a really rich brown. She was wary of the brown at first, but it just looks so good with her skin tone and I think it will be fine in pictures. 

It is a Sarah Danielle and has a built in corset so it is so flattering!

@brideatbeach: I totally agree. I am top heavy, so I have to look for separates, unless I want to pay for alterations. I am thinking about making a dress to wear to her wedding because I think that will be my best option, but I don’t know, yet. I really would prefer to get something ready made, so I don’t have to worry about it.

What makes matters worse, my daughter is definately not having a traditional type of wedding; at least for our ethnicity, so I am finding it difficult to find something that will fit with her theme; right now she plans to wear a sari (sp). 

I was teasing her and told her that I would just wear my wedding dress to her wedding and she told me it didn’t matter what I wore, just as long as I would be there to share her day with her. She won’t suggest anything. It is making me crazy.

@noritake22: Have you told her how stressed you are? I had no idea my mom was stressed until my dad told me, and then I was happy to help her in the search! 🙂

@brideatbeach: No, I don’t want to worry her. She has enough going on in her life without me adding to it. I am sure I will find something. It will just take some time. I am extremely picky, so that probably has something to do with it too. Also, I am the planner and organizer of things, so she constantly calls me for advice.

My Mom never wears dresses, so it was a stretch for her to wear a long skirt on our special day.  I thought her final choice (separates from Dillards online) complimented the BM’s gowns and she looked lovely.  Here she is:

@melisslp: the color of your moms jacket is AMAZING. It looks so good on her skin tone.

My mom will be wearing a pant suit, similiar to this one. She likes pants suits since she is shaped like spongebob, dresses do nothing for her figure.
