Dresses sold as mother-of-the-bride dresses also work well as mother-of-the-groom dresses. Pants also are appropriate for a MOG who prefers them.

Typical costs:

  • Mother-of-the-groom dresses cost, on the lower end, from less than $100-$200 for a dress from a discount department store or online retailer. For example, at Amazon.com[1] , mothers' dresses start at $40.
  • In the mid-range, they cost about $200 to under $800 for a dress or suit from a higher end department store or bridal store. For example, at Nordstrom[2] , mother-of-the-bride/mother-of-the-groom dresses cost about $100-$775.
  • And on the high end, they cost about $800-$3,000 or more for a designer dress from a high-end bridal boutique or salon. For example, NewYorkDress.com[3] , offers a selection of dresses that cost $1,000-$4,000.

What should be included:
  • Some mothers of the groom choose to purchase an off-the-rack dress. However, if a mother of the groom orders a dress through a bridal shop or boutique, a sales staff member should take professional measurements to make sure the dress is ordered in the correct size. Alterations typically cost extra.
Additional costs:
  • Alterations typically cost $20-$100 or more, depending on the changes required. For example, at Ree's Sewing[4] in Michigan, hem alterations cost $20 or more. Side seam alterations cost up to $55.
  • Shoes, jewelry and other accessories such as shaping garments can add hundreds to thousands of dollars to the cost. For example, at NewYorkDress.com[5] , jewelry costs $25-$300. And at Nordstrom[6] , shaping garments and hosiery cost $30-$100.
Discounts:
  • The best way to get a discount is to look for a sale at a department or bridal store. For example, dresses on sale at Macy's[7] start at $40.
Shopping for a mother of the groom dress:
  • According to traditional etiquette rules, the mother of the groom should wait until the mother of the bride purchases her dress. The MOG should take the color and style of the MOB dress into account when purchasing her own dress, according to TheKnot.com's etiquette guide to MOG dresses[8] . Loosely coordinating the purchases helps prevent clashes in color and style.
  • Similar to guidelines for the mother-of-the-bride, traditional etiquette calls for the MOG to avoid all shades of white, as well as black or bright colors such as red. Navy and nude are popular shades for mother-of-the-groom dresses, according to TheKnot.com.
  • In the low to mid-range, retaliers like Amazon.com, JCPenney and Dillard's offer mother-of-the-bride and mother-of-the-groom dresses[9] .
  • In the mid-range, Nordstrom[10] offers a wide selection of mother-of-the-bride/groom dresses.
  • For higher-end dresses,TheKnot.com offers a shopping tool for dresses for mothers of the bride/groom[11] .
