MoB/MoG Dresses

Has anyone been able to find a mother of the bride/groom dress that doesn't make their mother/mother-in-law look like a sea monster or a hooker?  I can't seem to find anything decent.

    Yes. In my mother's closet. Dad got the dress she'll wear to the wedding for her for Christmas about 20 years ago. 20 years ago, when everyday life was more formal, it was just a very nice wear-to-work dress.

    My mom is plus sized and we found a nice one for her from Jessica London, I didn't like any at the bridesmaid/formal wear shop.

    Yeah, when my mom was looking there were a lot of nice options out there. I saw a lot of nice ones at Lord and Taylor, Nordstrom, Macy's, and Bergner's. My mom ended up getting hers at the bridal store where I ordered my dress.

    If you're helping your mom shop, find out what type of silhouette, style, etc she is looking for, then when you go to a store, a sales person may be able to help you find something similar or narrow it down. She can also look at stores' websites online ahead of time to see if they have anything she'd be interested in trying on.

    My mom found her dress on Overstock and my DH's mom found hers at David's Bridal.

    I wore this dress, in red and got a lot of lovely compliments.
