Choosing Wedding Dress When 43 Years Young!

by PollyUD
(U.K. )

I have always thought about my wedding, a girlie child with a need to be wanted, romantic and whimsical. I met the love of my life when I was 30 and we have travelled and had 2 daughters. Finally, after a few drinks and prompted by his sister, he proposed and we are getting married in July 2017! I am now 43, still only 5"2 and a little heavier than I would like. I am an inverted triangle on top and rectangle below, so wide shoulders and narrow hips with little waist definition. I thought I would go for A line tea length dress but got carried away and fell for sparkly jewelled bodice, A line with hoops and small train! Now confidence my age!?


I think the dress you chose is appropriate for you. You can wear a traditional wedding dress at any age. The most important thing is that the gown is complimentary to you, which it seems you did great with that.

The other thing to consider is whether the dress fit in with the wedding theme, and setting. Not giving attention to this is one reason some have had to go back wedding dress shopping again.

So what it really boils down to is this... it's whether your dress choice makes YOU happy, if so ... then go for it!
