Mother of the Bride Dress

Soooo....Our wedding is at night, in this beautiful historic garden and the ceremony will only be lit by the glow of candles. Our colors are Champagne and ivory with pops of a very vibrant plum purple. I need a fun MOTB dress for my mom in purple with maybe a little shimmer. She doesn't like any of the dresses she is finding so far because she says they are all too "old lady!" LOL!!! So I thought I would turn to my purple PM girls for help!! THANKS!!!

My mom also had a hard time finding dresses.  She is petite and pretty young, so we didn't want her in some frumpy get-up.  Did she already check online at department stores?  We ended up finding one after season at Sears for my mom, it is a designer that is carried at Macy's too, so check out the non-obvious options.

my grandma tried on dress #1 at macys i think? or maybe jc penny? but anyway it was terrible! does anyone have something for a mom or grandma in my case, that hides some of the imperfections. i mean my grandma has pretty good sizes boobs and that first dress she was falling out of.

My mom did a Bill Levkoff BM dress in Eggplant, but they have other shades of purple.  Definitely check out BM dresses for your mom.  My mom said the same thing about dresses she was finding... they all looked too "old lady."

Hi,  I'm the mother-of-the-bride and my daughter found me my purple gown at Nordstrom's on-line it is similar to #1 but long and by Arianna Papell.  Now I'm looking for silver shoes to go w/it and jewelry.
