    So much excitement! So much joy! So many details.

    What to wear at your son or daughter’s wedding is often not the first priority as you plan for the big day. Then it hits: I need a dress!

    Thankfully, PromGirl has a great choice of dresses for the mother of the bride or groom.  Here’s a few that catch my eye.

    Mon Cheri Mother of the Bride Groom Formal Dresses at PromGirl

    This cowl back mother of the bride dress channels an Elsa Schiaperelli vintage look.

    Available in berry or black, Mon Cheri’s cowl back formal gown captures vintage elegance found in designers from the 1930’s like Elsa Schiaparelli. With a gorgeous drape and bias cut, it smoothly glides over your curves. This mother of the bride or groom dress runs from size 4 to 20.

    Mix lace and chiffon in a Alyce’s sweetheart gown. This long formal dress is perfect for the mother who doesn’t want bare arms at the wedding reception, but isn’t interested in the 2 piece mother of the bride dress with jacket.  The ruched body is emphasized at the waist with a beaded appliqué. From petite to plus sizes, this is a fabulous evening gown.

    A beaded bodice, V neck and matching shawl gives you options in Mon Cheri’s sexy layered chiffon dress. Available in three “modern neutral” shades, you won’t have to worry about clashing with the bridesmaids, but you certainly won’t be invisible.

    Many mothers choose cocktail dresses for their children’s weddings instead of a full length gown. I like this aubergine ruched dress from Karen Miller. Beaded at the left hip and across the sheer shoulder panels, this knit semi formal dress is sophisticated and perfect for a wedding in any season.

    Ordering your formal dress is easy! Just check the size chart for your favorite style before ordering. If the dress is fitted at the bust, choose the measurement that’s closest to your own (go for the larger size if your measurements don’t exactly match the chart). You can always have the dress tailored to fit you perfectly for the big day.

    Check another thing off your planning list after you’ve ordered a great dress. And congratulations!
