What should I wear as a 68 year old bride?

I am getting married next year, and I would like advice as to what I should wear.

Hi Chrissie,

Mature brides such as yourself are wearing what they feel comfortable in. Some are wearing full out wedding gowns with trains. Others are wearing informal bridal gowns. And some prefer dressy pants or a 2 piece special occasion dress.

The style you choose should compliment your body shape. This means that necklines, sleeves and the silhouette should work with your figure type.

You can choose what ever color you wish to wear. Ivory is very popular now for brides. White, pale pink and champagne are also good choices.

Do you necessarily need a wedding dress? You could choose to wear a "mothers dress" as your bridal gown. Some bridesmaids dresses come in white and ivory and can be used as a wedding gown.

So where can you purchase your bridal dress? Well of course you can go to your local bridal store. But did you realize that some of the department stores are selling bridal gowns. You won't find them in the store, only online. Try Macy's, Dillards and Nordstrom. J Crew has bridal dresses you can buy online.

There are so many places you can go online. Just make sure you check out the return policies. Some companies have strict return policies.

Hope this gets you started! Happy shopping!
