Choosing a mother of the bride dress is not like it used to be. You used to go to a formal dress shop and try on the 20 or so outfits they had or perhaps picked up something from a department store. So much has changed since then. We carry thousands of formal gowns that are appropriate for the mother of the bride's. Here is how to find them all on our site.
What is appropriate for mother of the bride dresses? Click on filter options for things like long sleeve, or high neck. You do not want to outshine the bride so steer clear of anything with a high slit, open back, or cut-outs. Brands like La Femme and Alyce have a ton of appropriate mother of the groom dresses.
The rule for "what color should I wear" used to be neutral tones, nothing bright, and never white. But today, anything goes. We see mothers of the groom wearing dark colors, and even explicitly picking a color dress that matches the bridesmaids or theme of the wedding.
Sizing is crazy! You are going to be 2-3 sizes from your typical department store outfits. We know, it is weird, but that is just the way it is. Pick a dress you like and look at the size chart and use that as a general guide when you are searching our site.
