14 Mother-of-the-Bride Dresses That Are Super Stylish


All of those fashionable moms walking the red carpet at this year's Oscars reminded us just how awesome mother-of-the-bride dresses can be. (Seriously, how gorgeous did Jared Leto's mom look?) But you don't have to be the parent of a celebrity to rock a killer gown. The mothers in our real wedding galleries are even further proof that the bride doesn't have to be the only stylish lady at a wedding.

Case in point: Above, two moms work vibrant-colored dresses to their daughter and son's Napa Valley wedding. Accessories like shawls, a trendy chevron-print purse, and a statement-making necklace transform their tiered dresses from simple to stunning, while remaining subtle enough to keep the attention on the bride.
