    Hi all!

    My mom and I have been looking all over our city and can't seem to find any dresses for her. I'm just wondering what your mothers are wearing seeing as it's gonna be a hot day. Are they wearing formal, long dresses? Or something a little shorter and floaty? My dad isn't wearing a suit or tux or I guess something super formal would be out of the question as they won't really match. Any input would be great! Thanks again!!!

        My mom is going with a long, flowy chiffon sundress with jewelled sandals and big jewellry. She got the dress at melanie Lynn in London, On. and the sandals at Towne Shoes.

          So funny, I was just talking about this with FMIL and my mom. They are both planning on weargin knee length or tea length dresses. Nothing too fancy. My mom was eyeing a cotton dress at J Crew. FMIL is going to look for a Hawaiin dress when she is in Maui next month. SO they will be beachy casual. no beads, no sequins, nothing formal.

            I was worried about pictures. My mom sort of liked this flowery dress but I thought that the pattern was too much considering the beautiful background of the ocean/beach/palm trees. I was thinking of something more plain looking. What do you guys think?

              I hear you but in the end, I just dont care that much, my step mom bought a laundry dress that is like all diff colors of hot pink. FMIL is looking to wear hawaiin print. ultimately I just dont care too much.

                My mom just ordered her dress. Here's a link to the dress she ordered. Plus Size Mother of the Bride at Roamans.com
                It's not super fancy but not really casual either. I'm not sure yet what FMIL is going to wear. Her and FSIL are going shopping this week to see if they can find something.

                  FMIL is wearing this dress, but in horizon blue: David's Bridal - Short sleeveless jersey dress with center front ruching and charmeuse bands.

                  And my mom is wearing this in David's Bridal - Printed crinkle chiffon A-line with Y-neck and back cascade.

                  We wanted something comfy and flowy so they good breath and enjoy the night. But Joes' mom is a small little lady (size 4 and 5') and my mom is 5'6" and a size 14 so we wanted something complimenting of their bodies

                    Wow the dresses are great! I will have to show them to my mom. We did find something here, but it was $325 for a tea lenght!! We both found that expensive for 1/2 dress! lol
