I’ve had another reader request (I love these)! This reader is looking for the perfect dress for her mom:
I could use some help finding a Mother of the Bride dress. I am finding bridesmaid type dresses and ugly old lady dresses with jackets, I want something in the middle. Any suggestions on where to look would be very much appreciated. Are there any “rules” I should be following for a Evening Fall wedding?
Rules? Well, I think that the most important things are to find a dress that is flattering and comfortable (and that makes your mom feel fabulous) and to make sure that the dress is appropriate to the wedding. For an evening wedding in autumn, I’d suggest darker colors or jewel tones.
Here are some lovely dresses for a stylish, sophisticated mother of the bride. All dresses cost under $200
