Midi dresses are having a major style moment and, lucky for you, that means there are plenty of mother of the groom tea-length dresses to meet your fashion fancy. A frock that hits below the knee keeps your look perfectly classy and formal without going too overboard, which is ideal for mothers of the groom who want something in between a full-length gown and a casual mini. Essentially, you're guaranteed a tasteful wedding day ensemble that doesn't scream overly matronly and won't clash with the mother of the bride.

Once you've pinned down your desired dress hem length, next comes the hard part—picking a specific silhouette and color. To make your shopping process loads easier, we rounded up 24 tea-length mother of the groom dresses for any style and body type. Craving something that makes a statement, yet won't steal the show during family photos with the bride? Then you'll love David Meister's silver frock with floral appliqué detailing. Veering toward something slightly nontraditional? Color blocking is the name of the game, courtesy of ModCloth's black and emerald tea-length gown. For a plus size mother of the groom dress, Lane Bryant's one-shoulder, navy number will have all eyes on you as you walk down the aisle. Whichever style you choose, whether it be A-line or a dress and jacket combo, you can't go wrong with any of the following picks for your son's (and your!) big day.
