Reassure your mom: It is possible to find a stylish, nonmatronly mother-of-the-bride dress in any price range. Inspired by the personal styles of five real moms, we've chosen dresses and accessories that any mother would be proud to wear.
For her daughter Chelsea's wedding, Hillary Clinton donned an ombré Italian organza gown with floral detailing by Oscar de la Renta. We loved the design's modern, not matronly, shoulder coverage, and that Hillary opted for a bright raspberry hue instead of dullsville black, navy, or champagne. In honor of Hillary's bold choice, we're showcasing gowns for mothers-of-the-bride (and groom!) in pinks, tasteful reds, and purples.
We found three mothers-of-the-bride who all had ideas—and requirements—for what they wanted to wear to their daughter's wedding but didn't know where to start. So we found them some great options, and invited them to our offices to give them a try.
