When you are a mature bride looking for wedding dresses and you are 40, 50 or 60 years of age, there are two things you want to accomplish...
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 . . . some mature brides can have a difficult time finding age appropriate wedding attire that they feel comfortable wearing.
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:
"I know it may not seem true, 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."
