      Hi Ladies!!  I am on the hunt for a dress for my mom and for my soon-to-be MIL.  They are both fairly short - one is a size 6 and one is a size 12 and their tastes have proven to be a bit different than mine which is not helping right now.  I want them to feel comfortable and love what they wear for the wedding, but it is really hard to find something that we both like!!  I am trying to find something beachy, not too formal, not too casual, bright colors, etc. and I'm striking out.  We just found this dress in the Talbot's catalog yesterday, and it might be a winner.  I really like it, I'm just crossing my fingers that my MIL likes it.

      I also really like this one.  Sorry about not posting the actual pics, but I couldn't figure out how off of the Talbot's website.

        Sorry about the links above - it looks like the one brings you to a white dress - which is so not what I was going for.  I liked the green color, but my MIL said last night she looked like she had on a sack when she tried it on. 

         

        We did have success though so here are the dresses that my mom and my MIL bought.

         

        This is the one my mom got and loves from Banana Republic

        And this is the dress that my MIL got from Talbot's (or some version of the same print anyway) with a matching wrap/scarf.

        Good luck and happy dress hunting to everyone!

          Thanks, JayKay!!  I really didn't know how difficult it was going to be to find dresses (1) that we agreed on and (2) that were not too formal and not too casual.  I really really like the dresses that we got!  It was the 3rd dress purchased for my soon-to-be MIL and dress #4 for my mom....so we've been looking for a little while.  One of the problems is to find anything even remotely "beachy" you really have to look in like April b/c everything now is starting to go on the sale rack and get picked over to make room for fall items.  Its kind of ridiculous how soon the seasons change in stores.

              I really like what your mom wore. I think it would be perfect for my mom. Do you know where she got it from? or who makes it?

               

              Thanks.

                I think she got it from Macy's last summer on the sale rack, so probably not available anymore.

                  My mom and MIL went a little more formal than the ladies that have recently posted. It seems like everyone prefers the beachy look, but in case someone is shopping around for something different, here we go...

                   

                  Mom: Kay Unger from Bloomingdale's (She's on the left in red)

                  MIL: from Nordstrom, I think the brand is Suzi Chin
