YAY! Your daughter is getting married! What an exciting time filled with engagement parties, bridal showers, wedding dress shopping and cake tastings. The big day will be here before you know it! You have probably been so caught up in the planning of the wedding, you haven’t even had time to think about what you are going to wear. But do not worry, this post is for you! I have rounded up a few of my favorite dresses from some of my go-to stores that offer fashion-forward MOB dresses. Also scroll to the bottom to find a few more of our picks for mom.


This stunning dress with the sweet little cap sleeves and a dramatic (but tasteful) V back is perfect for to show off that 15 pounds you lost from that wedding diet you and your daughter took part in 😉 And you look good, girl! This one comes in so many colors, too.

Katie May Plunge Knot Back Gown | $295


This dress exudes class. The muted beige with the lace detail is perfect for EVERY skin tone and body type. Also, it is slightly off-the-shoulder which gives it a little more youthfulness and fun!

Rent The Runway

Okay here’s the truth of the matter. How many times are you going to wear your Mother of the Bride dress again? Not very many. Rent The Runway allows you to rent beautiful designer gowns at a fraction of the retail cost for your event and not worry about having it cleaned or putting it in the back of the closet never to be worn again. You will feel (and look) like a movie star for the night!

So maybe your daughter is getting married in the middle of July in the Alabama outdoors and just looking at these floor length dresses is making you break a sweat (I know I would!) Here’s a tea-length option for you that is both classy and cool. 

Anthropologie Eleanor Tea-Length Dress | $300


A sister company to Anthropologie (and you may be able to tell from the style of this dress and its similarity to the Anthro one) BHLDN is all about weddings. They have bridal gowns, bridesmaid dresses, MOB dresses and accessories. The color of this gown is what drew me to this one. That rosy gold is so in right now (and your daughter will be so impressed by your knowledge of that.)
