Help Mature Bride Find A Wedding Dress

by Anonymous

I'm getting married next year. We have not fixed a date yet but its either June or July. I'm 50 years old and this is my second wedding ,as I lost my first husband 6 years ago. I met my partner 3 years ago and we got engaged on Christmas day. I'm size 22 to 24. I'm hoping to lose a little bit so hopefully I should be about a size 20, as I don't want to lose to much.

It's not going to be a church wedding. What do I wear? I don't want to look to old, but at the same time, I don't want to look to young. I know I don't want a long wedding dress, but as for what else to wear, I'm lost! I keep looking on web sites but most of them are for long wedding dresses. Please help if you can.

Some mature brides have found that an evening gown will work nicely as a wedding gown. Remember, you can have a floor length gown cut off to a shorter length. An ankle length, or tea length hem length would be nice for an informal wedding setting.

Just make sure to choose a gown that will flatter your figure. Here are some tips to help plus size brides do just that.
