So my daughter's getting married in September and apparently I'm way behind on some imaginary schedule because the mother of the groom, is very upset I don't know what I'm wearing yet.  I can't stand the thought or sight of those traditional MOB dresses that make you look 70 years old and like a giant rectangle!  I want a more, well you know...hippie dress, but dressy.  The wedding is going to be in a park and the reception at a lodge in the same park, so somewhat relaxed.  Daughter is wearing a tea length dress with cowboy boots.  

 

Any ideas on where to shop?  Any pics would be awesome!  BTW, I'm a size 16 or so, but on my way down, hopefully a 14 or so by then.  thanks ladies!  <3

:clap: That's a pretty dress! Might be chilly though in September, if it's outside, depending on weather.

As hippieskichick pointed out, it may be chilly in September.

The whiskey will keep you warm.  :wink:

Don't feel too bad about the terminology around here - for a while I thought #1s was :boobs1:

Macy's is always my go-to for dresses.  they even have a section on their website for mother-of-the-bride - but they are just regular dresses from their normal collection...

also i know a lot of my friends have shopped thru Watters' website.  they are a designer and their dresses are available in a lot of different stores around the country... they have a line of MOB dresses - maybe more formal than you are going for? but beautiful..

I've seen some pretty cute dresses and skirts at such places. They're not all full-blown tie dye hippie, but lots of pretty, earthy ones too.
