The MOB or MOG Deserves a Stylish New Dress, Too
You know those days you want to pretend you’re never aging, thus no need to make plans for the future? Well, let’s embrace that and have 2 seconds to be delulu. . . The way I see it, I have many, many, many years before ever needing a mother-of-the-bride or mother-of-the-groom dress. Sorry, not sorry. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Okay, delulu over! So it’s real life and you found out your child is getting married, you are going to be a MOB or MOG whether you like it or not. And if you’re anything like me, you’re thinking “great, now what am I going to wear?” Sure, you can go with something you have in your closet. That dress you wore for the holidays last year was gorgeous (how would I know that? I wouldn’t, but I know you’re thinking it). 🤭 But the better option (always the better option) is to just go shopping and pick out a new number that has all the guests wondering whether you’re the mother, aunt or (fingers crossed) sister. What?! Skincare works wonders and with all the retinols and collagen creams out there, aging is basically not a concern anymore, right?
Soooo, we sort of got excited for you and went shopping on your behalf. Don’t worry, there’s plenty of styles to choose from, too! Check out our fave MOB and MOG dresses, and try to find JUST one you love (it’s not gonna happen, you’ll find more!). Oh, and if you’re not vibing with any of the ones we picked, then perhaps peruse Adrianna Papell yourself (a dress designer, yes, but also have dresses for mom as you’ll see below). We’re affiliates, sure, but also lovers of their dresses!
