The Perfect Wedding Dresses For Older Brides

Preparing For the Big Day

A wedding is a special occasion for every bride. You want every detail — and especially your dress — to be perfect. Painstaking hours and so much consideration can go into the dress selection for a bride of any age. But when it comes to wedding dresses for older women, there are a lot of misconceptions out there. Read on for some great tips and suggestions on formal or casual wedding dresses for older brides.

How to Select Wedding Dresses for Older Women

When you’re looking for wedding dresses for brides over 50 or 60 — or of any age — there are several considerations to keep in mind. The first step is to think about your everyday style. Do you tend more toward Boho, fashion-forward or maybe a tailored look? One option for wedding dresses for older women is to select a style that you’re already comfortable with.

On the other hand, weddings are an opportunity to try something completely new, maybe a style you’ve only dreamed about. Whether you’re searching for ultra-sophisticated gowns, simple dresses or casual wedding dresses for older brides, there’s an option out there that’s right for you.

Considerations When Choosing Wedding Dresses for Older Women

There used to be a lot of rules about wedding dresses for older women — no white dresses, no bare arms. But that’s all changed, and the sky’s the limit these days. Wedding dresses for a second marriage, first marriage or vow renewal run the gamut from formal to casual, romantic to tailored. As you decide which is right for you, here are factors to consider:

  1. Neckline — Sweetheart, jewel, plunging, V-neck, bateau and high-collared are among the neckline possibilities for older brides. Asymmetrical necklines are another choice.
  2. Length — Full-length isn’t your only option. There are also ankle-length dresses, as well as short dresses and tea-length dresses, that are worth a look.
  3. Silhouette — There’s a full range of silhouettes that an older bride can consider, including ball gown, sheath, A-line and mermaid.
  4. Sleeves — Besides sleeveless, you can also opt for cap sleeves, half sleeves, three-quarter sleeves or full-length sleeves.
  5. Back — Older brides don’t have to settle for full-back dresses. There are also open-back dresses that could be a perfect match.
  6. Color — In addition to the ever-popular white, options include champagne, milk, nude, gray, cappuccino and various shades of ivory.

Wedding dresses for older women are also available with and without trains.
