Shop Story

If you’re a mother-of-the-bride looking for something chic to wear to your daughter’s wedding, you’re in luck. Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly Sale is on right now, with savings of up to 40% off fashionable special-occasion styles. While the mother-of-the-bride’s outfit was traditionally a matronly uniform, it can now be virtually any look, as long as it follows the bride’s cues about style and degree of formality. Below, we rounded up our favorite mother-of-the-bride looks on major markdown right now (one gown was 55% off!). The Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale runs through Jan. 2, and styles are selling out fast, so grab them before they’re gone.
