Everyone knows that weddings can be stressful. Hello? There’s a reason for the term, Bridezilla! But you don’t have to be a bride to stress about what to wear, especially if you have a key role in the festivities. Don’t worry, Gurls. Today I’m sharing with you some of the best plus-size mother-of-the-bride dresses that will have you looking stunning.
It’s been a long time since I was the mother of anyone getting married. My son, Joseph, got married in 2016 but since then I’ve been just a guest. This photo is of me and my daughter, Ashleigh, the day before my niece got married in May. We had a great time helping my sister-in-law on the day of the wedding. While talking to both of the mothers that day, I realized how stressful it had been for them to choose their dresses. Hopefully, today’s post will help take away some of the stress of this very special day.
I had to show you the decorated car! Ashleigh is very creative and repurposed the flowers that had been used for the church decorations for the couple’s drive-away car. The car was the bride’s grandfather’s, and it was a special moment to see them drive away in it after the ceremony.

Navy is a very popular color for wedding parties. Almost every dress I’ve found is available in navy, with very few exceptions. I think this is so pretty. I love the slight cowl neck. It’s elegant and bra-friendly, always a plus. The beaded detail at the waist is lovely, and the slit adds a little va-va-voom!
This beautiful dress is available in two colors – navy, of course, and black. It’s so flattering! Love the neckline and the 3/4 length sleeves. Even though it’s very formal, it still looks comfortable. And, it has POCKETS, my favorite! The reviews say that it runs true to size.
Of course, not every wedding dress has to be full-length. This lovely lace A-line dress would be totally appropriate as part of the wedding party, or just as a guest. I love the green, but it’s also available in six other colors, including navy. 🙂
Another pretty lace dress from Kiyonna. I love the sheer sleeves, a huge trend right now, and even though I’m usually all about color, I think this “storm grey” is gorgeous. If you want something a bit brighter, it’s also available in Goldenrod and Teal Topaz.

This looks like a black dress, but it’s actually navy and gold. This is one of the more formal dresses featured today. If your wedding event is on the fancier side and being held in the evening, this would be perfect!

This dress looks a bit more summer than fall, but I just couldn’t show another navy dress, Lol. It is available in darker colors -navy, magenta, and black. It’s one of the least expensive dresses at only $69 dollars. If a dress is something you’ll only wear once or twice, then buying something that is less expensive makes perfect sense.
I love this color! It’s officially mocha, but I’m not sure that is the best description. Either way, it’s gorgeous. If you’re not a fan, the lavender and the merlot are equally beautiful. The satin belt can be removed if you’d rather wear it without. The reviewers say to size down one size!
You know how I love interesting details. I know not all of you will be fans of these asymmetrical sleeves, but I think they take a fairly simple dress and provide a bit more interest. The same for the ruffle down the front of the dress. Like so many things offered on Amazon, it comes in several colors and even different lengths.
This is very similar to the blue dress in a few photos above. It makes sense because they are made by the same company. I like them both, but I think this sweetheart neckline and cap sleeve make this one a bit more elegant. I also like the lace-back detailing on this version a lot.
Which do you prefer??
Wow! The only thing I can find wrong with this dress is that you might outshine the bride! It’s beautiful, but the beading can make dresses heavy, so keep that in mind.
It’s also available in this gorgeous Merlot color. It’s amazing how different it looks in a dark color! The good news is that if you’re wondering which one to wear, just ask the bride. She will absolutely tell you! lol.
In honor of weddings, I’m sharing one of my favorite wedding scenes ever. I LOVE this movie, and this is one of my favorite songs ever! This scene always makes me cry.
