Father of the groom's girlfriend

My mom is going to her boyfriend's son's wedding in November. She gets along with both the son and his fiancee perfectly fine. She's just not sure if she is supposed to get a long gown or a regular knee length dress that she would wear to anyone's wedding. She will most likely be in some pictures but she doesn't want to look like she's trying to be one of the 'mother of the groom or bride'... any suggestions? She of course wouldn't get a 'mother of the bride' type dress, but we both feel that a longer dress is more formal 'wedding partyish' than a short dress....

    A long gown seems a little fancy to me. I think I would go with the knee-length. 
    What did you think would happen if you walked up to a group of internet strangers and told them to get shoehorned by their lady doc?~StageManager14

    Go with a knee-length dress that does not try to match the wedding colors. Also, maybe have her get a more casual bolero/cardigan/wrap/sweater?

    If she gets along with the FI, does she feel comforable enough asking for suggestions?

    Exactly what Retread said - something she would wear to anyone else's wedding.
