While the most raved about dress at your son's upcoming wedding is bound to be the bride's wedding dress, you still deserve to have your own fashion moment with a mother of the groom dress that makes you feel stylish and confident.
When shopping for the perfect mother of the groom dress, it's important to keep in mind what silhouettes work best for you and what assets you'd like to show off (like those long legs or elegant shoulders!). What's more, mother of the groom and mother of the bride dresses are anything but frumpy! From fashion-forward velvet to elegant necklines to body-skimming plus size styles–you'll be dreaming up excuses to wear your ensemble again!
Diane Von Furstenberg Satin-Trimmed Velvet Jumpsuit
Talk about wow-factor! If you're looking for an alternative to the dress for a black-tie wedding, go forth and be bold in this elegant jumpsuit. Even though this look is loose-fitting throughout and in oh-so-comfortable velvet, a statin bow helps to cinch your waist and ties the whole look together.
BHLDN Leaf Appliqué Tea-Length Dress
If you're a mother who appreciates the simplicity of a chic little black dress, go for an elevated LBD for a formal wedding. This tea-length frock is packed with interesting details like an illusion bodice that is fully lined and a unique leaf motif that carries throughout the sleeves and hem.
Aidan Mattox Rose Gold Beaded Boatneck Dress
The soft blush color, the delicate sheer sleeves, the cascading floral beading, the piped waist, the subtle side slit–everything about this dress is romantic! Wear yours with minimal jewelry and sweep your hair up to really showcase all of the gorgeous details.
Dolce & Gabbana Gold Lace Midi Dress
A semi-formal wedding calls for a sophisticated but less dressy look than a black-tie wedding and this lace number more than fits the bill. Since gold is practically a neutral, this short dress can be worn to a New Year's Eve wedding, a summer wedding and everything in between!
Betsy and Adam Drape Sleeve Stretch Sheath Dress
Upon first glance, you may not notice that this supremely elegant, body-skimming sheath dress has a little glittery sparkle to it. If you're looking for glitz and glam that isn't overpowering–this is your answer! Plus, those draped sleeves prove that coverage can be anything but frumpy.
Oscar de la Renta Floral Embroidered Dress
Typically, a bride's wedding dress is designed to only be worn once but that shouldn't be the case when it comes to your mother of the groom dress. This is a big day for you too so why not invest in a piece that you really love and see yourself in again like this Oscar de la Renta embroidered dress.
