Mature Bride Wedding Attire

by EmSue
(Sarasota, FL, USA)

I am 56 and getting married in two weeks. I searched a long time for a "mature" look and found them sorely lacking in my style. Most were either too formal, too frilly, or too frumpy!

Then my daughter found a beautiful look in a magazine that is exactly what I decided I wanted. It's a long, loose, sleevelss tunic with wide-leg pants underneath. I'll wear a pashmina with it and some fun shoes. I'm having it made and the whole thing will cost about $400. All the dresses and suits I found that even came close to what I might consider wearing were at least that much and more.

I now have a wedding outfit that suits me, and will fit me perfectly. I couldn't be happier! "Traditional" isn't always the way to go!

Alternative Wedding Dress Attire For A Mature Bride
by: Desiree

Hi EmSue,

Thanks for sharing with us the outfit you chose for your wedding. This is a great alternative wedding dress choice. Having a wedding outfit custom made is a good idea for brides who can't find what they want. This is the way to assure that you will get exactly what you want and the perfect fit.

Finding a qualified wedding dressmaker is the most valuable person a bride can have to design her wedding dress or wedding outfit. I am glad you found someone to create something that represents your sense of style.

If you can send in a picture of your outfit, we would love to see it! It sounds lovely!

Thanks again for your contribution!
