Where to buy Mother of the Bride dress?

Hi Ladies, I am looking to buy a dress for my mom to wear at my wedding. I prefer a long dress with sleeves, budget under $200. Where can I shop for it in L.A., Pasadena, SGV, OC? Thank you !!

Thanks ladies !!


SpiffyBride, may I know which ebay store did your mom purchase from if you don't mind to share, and was there a fitting problem since it's purchase online?

I'm going to take my mom to One Night Affair. It's a place in L.A. where you can rent really high end dresses for a small price.  I'm hopeful that we'll find something!

My mom found her MOB dress at Nordstrom and then the same designer at Stein Mart of all places! She was able to find an adorable rehearsal dinner dress at Stein Mart and today she bought the dress she's going to wear to my bridal shower.

My mom and I went on Nordstrom.com and you'd be surprised at the deals that you can find on some really cute looks...here are 2 that we are debating on (both are $188):


My mom and I photo 1682801-1  My mom and I photo 1682801-2


These 2 styles are by Tahari. We like that we can order them to Nordstrom and pick them up...and we know that we can return whichever doesn't work with no trouble:)


Which do you like best??

I personally like #2, the one on the right. Do you know if they come in different color?

Noell's in downtown LA: http://www.noellclothing.com/


You can only try on 5 dresses per visit, but the selection is enormous.  Also, they do negotiate, so don't take the first price they say as the final sale.  I think they are only open Mon-Fri.

That style only comes in the ivory/gold (I like that because I'm wearing ivory and don't mind if my mommy matches)...but check out this one by Calvin Klein...It comes in a bunch of colors and is still under the $200 mark:

That style only comes photo 1683664-1


Hope this helps! Also, try searching "Mother of the Bride dress" on Nordstrom.com...there are tons of other styles that you might like:)

Just a follow up.  I went to One Night Affair in L.A.  What a dump!  The dresses were very old school...not in a good way.  We're still looking for my mom.
