Still trying to plan a fun Mother’s Day outing for you and your mom? How about this: Take her out for a ladies’ brunch and then go shopping for her MOB dress for your wedding. If you’re so inclined, you can also invite your future mother-in-law to join. But if you and your mom are stumped about what she should wear for your wedding day, allow us to provide a few suggestions:

Ethereal Romantic: If you’re getting married outdoors, your mom might want a gown that’s flowy and easy to move in. We love the feminine and romantic feel of the eggplant-hued gown at top left – the chiffon is light and airy for a warm-weather wedding, plus the lace cap sleeves provide a bit of coverage for the upper arms.

Glam: It can be difficult to find an evening gown that has that red carpet feel, but doesn’t show too much skin. That’s why we particularly like the black gown at top right. It features a figure-hugging silhouette and a shimmering satin fabrication, but also provides arm coverage and a flattering v-neckline.

Classic and Modest: If your mom wants coverage, but still classic and chic, we’re huge fans of the bottom right style. We love that this gown is a two-piece, which provides some flexibility to Mom’s look. She can wear the long-sleeved jacket for the ceremony, and then switch into another top for the reception (we’re thinking a crisp white button-down, a la Sharon Stone!).

Daytime Chic: Hosting a more informal wedding celebration? This coat-and-dress combo is perfect for a ceremony at a house of worship and a low-key reception. Plus, the metallic color scheme is so on-trend.
