Is this too much?

Hello, a nervous first time poster,

I am getting married again and will be 48 on the big day, with two teenage children.  Went dress shopping and tried on this dress, is it too much?

Civil ceremony, smallish venue about 60 guests.

Honest opinions please!

Thank you :-)imageimage

    It's stunning!  If you feel comfortable in it then go for it!!  Just because you are getting married again doesn't mean you have to scrimp on the dress - it really suits you!

    Its a lovely dress and suits you really well. But if you are asking the question that would suggest that you don't feel comfortable in it.

    All that really matters is that you like your dress.... anyone else's opinion doesn't matter.

  • NOOOOO its perfect! very similar to what I am having actually. go for it! its stunning on you

    Thank you for your kind replies.  I LOVE the dress and would love to wear it, is it just that at my advancing years, I worry that I am too old and whether people will expect me to wear something more age appropriate.

    My aunt for example has mooted that I wear a tailored suit - I know I don't want to wear that!

    You look great, and if you love the dress then go for it. I got married in fitted and strapless last year and felt a million dollars.

    The dress is beautiful and very flattering on you.  Your age, circumstances surrounding the marriage, and children have nothing to do with picking your dress. 

    The only other considerations I'd take into account is if you feel it's appropriate to the venue and the overall formality of the day.  Those are things all brides consider, not just ones of a certain age, etc. If you're having a casual day barefoot on the beach, do you want a giant satin ballgown? If you're getting married in a cathedral, do you really want a skin-tight plain bodycon dress?  (Probably no's to both of those.)  If you feel the dress fits with the day and makes you feel great, then you've found the one.

    Love love love the dress on you. Ultimately, it's a case of whether you love it and whether it suits with the type of wedding you're having which I imagine the answer to is yes so go for it! :)

    What a gorgeous dress. And it suits you so well.

    Ad others have said If you feel great in it then go for it. It shouldn't be about what other people think but how it makes you feel. If however there is something inside you niggling then you might want to try on a couple 9f other options. You never know it might just reconfirm that this one is the one.

    Thank you for all your feedback - have bitten the bullet and bought the dress!

    LOVE IT!
