    My FMIL found a dress she loved at Madeleine's Daughter. I thought the dresses were overpriced, but it might be worth checking out to start.

    My mom is the same age and didn't want any of the old lady dresses most places offer!  She ended up going with a bridesmaid dress!  She got it at Modern Bride in Bedford.  They were great to work with.  So anyways, have your mom look through bridesmaid dresses too and she just might find something she likes!

    My Mom is younger than yours and found her dress at Madeleine's Daughter. Like Chica said I found them overpriced but she loved it! My grandmother also bought her dress there.

    My mom is older than yours, but also didn't want the "dress with a jacket" look! She ended up finding a bridesmaid's dress at Modern Bride in Bedford, NH on the clearance rack for $25!! They have a really good selection of bridesmaid's dresses that are also appropriate for a MOB (not too "young" looking).

    Same here, my mom doesn't want a "MOB" type dress with a jacket, etc. She found a dress at Marry and Tux in Nashua, NH in the bridesmaid section.

    Good luck!
