Experts remind women to shop early for Mother of the Bride dresses

"Picking out the perfect wedding gown is definitely a challenge, as is finding the ideal mother of the bride dress. According to experts, women who are walking their daughters down the aisle may want to start shopping for an outfit as early as possible.

"It's a misconception that a mother of the bride can walk into a store at the very last minute and find the perfect dress. It doesn't happen often," Lynn Carbonneau, who owns a Massachusetts boutique, told Worcester Living.

Shop owner Eileen R. Grosse agrees, telling the news source that a good rule of thumb is to allow at least six months to find a mother of the bride dress. "Don't wait until the last minute," Grosse added. "I can't stress that enough."

Mothers may want to check out an online shop - instead of spending hours traveling to different stores, women can look through hundreds of dresses from the comfort of their home.

Daughters looking for the perfect mother of the bride dress may also enjoy the ease of online shopping at Brides-to-be can comb through images of gowns and send a select few to her mother or mother-in-law to choose from."
