Wedding Attire Challenges The Mature Bride Face Do You Fit This Profile For An Older Bride?

mature bride

When you are a mature bride looking for wedding dresses and you are 40, 50 or 60 years old there are two things you want to accomplish...

You want to look fantastic that day

Feel comfortable in what you are wearing.

You also more than likely want a little more coverage in a bridal gown than a younger bride would, yet you don’t want to look matronly.

You desire a vibrant, sophisticated appearance, for an age appropriate wedding dress.

But the challenge is there isn't a category of dress styles labeled "mature" wedding dresses. As it stands now . . . mature brides have a difficult time finding age appropriate wedding attire that they feel comfortable wearing.

A Mature Bride Survey Reveals What They Want In A Wedding Gown

There was a poll taken on this site of mature brides asking them what they were looking for when it came to a wedding gown. Here are the results:

Wanted some sort of sleeves - 3/4 length sleeves was the number one choice then cap sleeves, long sleeves, short sleeves then straps.

Necklines V- necklines was the number one choice. The next was bateau, jewel neck, off the shoulder and then one shoulder strap in that order. Portrait and sweetheart were suggested choices by some doing the survey.

Most prefered for more coverage a shrug or jacket over using a wrap to wear with a strapless wedding gown since that is the style of choice for wedding dress designers.

More streamline silhouettes, like a sheath or medium full a-line or princess line.

Shorter trains - most wanted no train at all or just a sweep train.

Non-traditional wedding dresses such as, mother's dresses had high numbers followed by a wedding suit and evening dress. A small percentage wanted a traditional wedding gown.

"I know it may not seem so but there is a good supply of wedding dress styles for the older bride who wants a 'modestly styled'-- but still 'stylish' gown ---on the market!"

"You just have to be willing do a little searching on the web to find your perfect wedding dress. On the pages of this site I will display a sampling of gowns you might consider."
