As mother of the bride, this is the day you watch your beautiful daughter walk down the aisle to meet the man she loves. While your daughter is the main attraction in the celebration, you need a dress that fits this formal occasion and your role in the festivities. For upscale weddings, there are many tasteful options that suit mothers of all ages and sizes in styles that work for whatever type of wedding is held.
For daytime or more casual evening weddings, shorter dresses are a popular option. Mothers who want a fun dress with a younger style can check out the Hammered Shimmer Jacket Dress with Tiered Skirt. Made of hammered platinum satin, this tank dress has an empire waist that is embellished with sequins and jewels. The skirt is tiered to a flattering knee length and it comes with a three quarter sleeve jacket for extra coverage. This dress has a back zip and is fully lined.
Moms who want a sexier short dress can take a look at the Off-the-Shoulder Ruched Stretch Taffeta Dress. This sleek little number is made of imported polyester stretch taffeta fabric, making it a form-fitting, yet comfortable design. The dress has an off-the-shoulder bodice with a center brooch that adds a bit of bling. The dress comes in Plumberry or Steel and is fully lined with a back zip. It is dry clean only.
One of the more clean cut short dress options is the Short Sleeve Dresses with Jeweled Button Detail. Reminiscent of a June Cleaver-ish 1950's style, this dress is slightly conservative but still has a swingy kick to it.

The jacket on this suit has three quarter length sleeves and a classic portrait collar. The jacket's button has a rosette detail. To show off your curves is a slim knee length skirt.

While these short styles are definitely sweet, mothers of bride attending more formal evening weddings will want a full-length gown for their child's big day. One style that is an excellent, elegant choice for any mother is the Taffeta Mock Two-Piece with three quarter sleeves. This dress features a side-ruched top with a gorgeous brooch at the waist. The bodice resembles a wrap dress and has a portrait collar and three quarter length sleeves. Adding to its sophistication is a long flowing skirt.

For a more romantically styled gown the Lace and Charmeuse Bolero Jacket Dress is a stunning choice. The gown is a one-piece with a lace bodice and a charmeuse ruched empire waist. It has spaghetti straps and a full skirt. The bolero jacket is also made of matching lace with scalloped edges and three quarter length sleeves. It is available in gold.

This ink colored one-piece blue dress wraps to the side and has a fabric flower at the waist. The skirt is a full ball gown. It comes with a double-sided iridescent taffeta wrap for optional coverage.
Moms who want to show off their hard work at the gym in a more form fitting dress can still exude elegance with the One-Shoulder Sueded Charmeuse Side Drape Dress.
