Mother of the Groom Dress?

Quick post - I'm busily working on invitation design, guest list, favor choices, and fitting into my dress, but I've got an important request for help and ideas.

Mr. OBX's mom is coming into town this weekend to search for a dress for our wedding and I volunteered to get a list together of places to shop, but I haven't a clue where to start (and google isn't helping).

Anyone have suggestions on good place to look for a "mom of the bride/groom" dress in the area?

actually I was surprised to see a small collection of mother-of-the-bride/groom type dresses at Macy's recently, that were reasonably priced (under $200). if the boutiques don't work out, I recommend checking out the department stores..

Claire Dratch (7615 Wisconsin Ave in Bethesda) is supposed to have good mother of the bride/groom options - or that's what I read somewhere.

Depending on her style and budget, my mom got her MOB dress at Nordstroms, and a friend of hers whose daughter is getting married soon got her MOB dress at JCrew! Really she could check the formalwear section of any department store.

A lot of bridesmaids dresses can also double as MOB/MOG dresses. Some bridal salons even carry dresses for moms specifically.
