Mature brides

Do you think there is a lack of wedding dresses to suit the more mature bride on the market?

  • Yes. But u do have to think outside the box a little.



    Im wearing Maggie Sotterro (Mikala Marie). Im 36, i didnt want to look like a princess bride, so thought this dress was elegant but not cinderella like.

    I think mature brides would do well to look more an the evening gown line, that most bridal shops hold in stock....i certainly tried loads on.

    I will be 49 when I get married next September and my dress is a traditional gown in ivory. There are no hard and fast rules, it is what you feel compfortable in and what will suit your style of wedding.



    Good luck.

    Hi. I love the look of the Mikala dress, it's exactly what I'm hoping for, but I haven't managed to track it down in any shops yet.



    Could you possibly tell me where you tried it on? Thanks very much!
