The bride isn’t the only one who needs a perfect dress for her wedding day. Finding a dress for Mom (both of the bride and groom!) can be a difficult task, even in a shopping capital like NYC. Most bridal shops are so focused on the bride and her bridesmaids that the options for mothers can be pretty limited. We put together a list of our favorite places to shop, whether your mom is the type who wants a dress that is flattering but budget-friendly or dramatic and couture.
We love the department stores. Lord & Taylor and Nordstrom never forget about moms, they even have whole pages on their websites devoted to Mother Of The Bride dresses (and of course these would also work for Mother Of The Groom). They have any type of style your mom could be looking for, and the price range is wide so you can definitely find something in the budget.
Of course we also have options for the fashionista moms out there. Lee Anderson is an Upper East Side designer specializing in custom-made dresses. She uses interesting fabrics and flattering silhouettes to make a dress that fits mom perfectly and makes her feel fabulous.
Lotus Bridal is known for its exceptional customer service with brides, but it also has a great selection of dresses for mothers. With options from designers like Jovani and La Perle, Mom can pick a couture gown that she loves and that matches the style of the wedding day.
