My mom was looking for a dress before the shut down, and now she’s stressing (even though I assure her she has plenty of time). She says “all mother of the bride dresses are either frumpy or look like [she’s] trying to pick up the best man.” I know she has some body/confidence issues, always has, but she’s starting to feel like it’s impossible to find something that fits our sunrise mountain wedding. I tried to suggest opening up her search to pantsuits or skirt/blouse combos, but she’s not keen on those suggestions. She’s also on a pretty tight budget, and I would totally buy her a dress if it was perfect, but I don’t have the money either and she would never let me.
Does anyone have suggestions for where to find affordable (preferably under $100) MOB dresses? Or pictures of what the MOB/MOG wore to your wedding (or plans to wear) for inspiration? I think she’s also having a hard time because so many of the models shes seeing are more like my age than hers and it’s hard to imagine what it will look like on her. I know she’s probably just going to have to try a bunch of things, but she really hates shopping for clothes, so hopefully I can make the process easier for her 🤞🏻.
