Wedding Gowns For Older Brides

Posted in: Wedding Dresses by admin | January 25th 2013 | no comments

No matter the age, any bride is concerned about choosing the right wedding dress for her special day. Fortunately, both younger and older brides can easily find their dream wedding gown thanks to the wide diversity of styles and designs. All you need to do is check out the latest bridal collections available in bridal stores and online. That’s because many fashion designers provide exquisite and modern gowns for the younger brides, but in the same time create large collections of classic and elegant dresses designed to flatter an older bride. If you are looking for a so called older bride wedding dress you should keep in mind a few important aspects while searching for your gown.

One of the first aspects that an older bride needs to remember when choosing her gown regards the dress’s length and style. If a younger bride is usually interested in wearing a big princess gown, a mature bride should consider wearing something simpler. You can go for a sheath dress which nicely touches the floor, highlighting your curves and showing off your best assets. If you are a tall woman, I strongly recommend long gowns with a sweep train. You can also go for a long gown with chapel train, especially if you are looking for a semi-formal bridal appearance. Many fashion designers also consider that an older bride will look amazing by wearing a knee length wedding gown complemented by a short and chic veil.  This bridal clothing idea is most suitable for the brides passionate about a classy look.

Another aspect that needs to be considered by any older bride in the process of choosing her dream gown targets the type of neckline. Usually, mature brides try to avoid strapless dresses being more comfortable with the shoulders and arms partially/completely covered. So, choosing a dress with cap sleeves or off the shoulder neckline might be a great option for a ravishing appearance. If you are interested in wearing a modest bridal gown you can consider impressing your groom and guests by wearing a lace gown with long lace or sheer sleeves. Designers also recommend for older brides the so-called Empire-waist dress because it ensures a nice silhouette and hides unpleasant aspects of the body. Besides the above mentioned bridal options, you can also choose some quite flattering alternatives which turn any mature woman into a sophisticated and stylish bride. I’m talking about the flowing gowns with cascading layers and the two-piece wedding dresses with catchy details like waist belts and gathered pleats. Don’t forget about the form fitting dresses with a side split.

Many mature brides are also stressed out when it comes to choosing the appropriate color for their bridal dress, especially when they are getting married for the second or third time. If you aren’t thrilled about wearing a white gown you should feel free to choose instead ivory, champagne or eggshell. You should also be willing to expand that color list at any time, because the right dress will make you look younger and charming even if it’s bold red.
