We’ve heard it so often that it has become an overused cliché: women are like wines – both get better with age. Well, if that stereotype is still true, then wedding dresses for older women are better too.
In many ways, it’s true, especially when you consider that older women these days can wear almost anything that their younger counterparts can. In fact, they can wear some bridal outfits that younger women cannot just because they have acquired the true confidence that only older women have in their characters. Did we mention that it takes a lifetime to become a person and older women are often closer to that goal than younger girls?
Choose a style
No matter how liberated you may be, you will want to follow certain conventions when it comes to wearing wedding dresses. On the one hand, you want your guests to smile at the choice of a classic, classic and compliment-worthy bridal dress, not at the ridicule behind your back. Second, you may need to consider your children’s sensitivity, especially if you don’t want them to be ashamed of their parents again.
However, in addition to covering suitable body parts, you can also choose from numerous wedding dresses to suit your personality and style. If you’re more of the sexy type then definitely put on a strapless dress, but remember to keep the slit to a minimum. If you’re on the conservative side, then a sleeved dress will do fine, but add little youthful accents like a little sash around the waist. Remember, for most mature women, less is more.
Also, keep in mind that your body has changed since your early 20s and therefore certain adjustments to your dress may be required. If you follow the rule of “flatter your assets and hide your liabilities” when choosing a dress, there is a wide variety of wedding dresses to choose from.
Choice of color
Nowadays, brides can choose whether to wear white or colored wedding dresses. No one is going to judge you so harshly on this point unless that person is jealous of your luck. Wear virgin white if you want or bright red if you so wish.
Of course, the choice of the color of your wedding dress ultimately depends on what color of the rainbow or what shade of white looks good on your skin tone. You can go for vibrant shades like red and purple or creamy tan with a touch of color.
Yes, in fact, the choices of wedding dresses for more mature brides are as varied as those for their younger counterparts. As such, you may want to bring a trusted friend with you to give her honest opinion on your initial decisions.
In summary, it’s always best to follow the saying about wedding dresses: if you wore it on your first wedding, skip it on your second and third wedding, and so on and so forth. Yes, even if subsequent weddings are just vow renewals with the same man, if only because your age and body may not be suitable for the first dress.
