Demetrios Evening Gown #7660
As a mother of the bride or mother of the groom, finding just the right dress to wear on your son or daughter's big day can be a big challenge. Although many retailers and designers that carry bridal gowns also carry bridesmaids dresses and flower girl dresses, it seems that mother of the bride or groom gowns (also known as "MOB" dresses) are often forgotten from wedding fashions.
When you do find a designer or retailer that carries dresses specially styled for the mother of the bride or groom, the selection can sometimes be scarce. And if you'd prefer not to wear the standard shapeless pastel shifts with draping shawls that seem so common to mother of the bride or groom gowns, the following fashions offer a classy, contemporary change of pace.
