If you're tying the knot a little later in life, you might think that there isn't that much choice out there for a mature bride. Wrong! Whether you go designer or buy off the high street there are plenty of options for women of all ages, shapes, and taste.
Every brides' style is different, and like a fine wine, we feel that a woman's style gets better with age. Do not fear all the frilly frocks that are aimed at those twenty-somethings, there are still more than enough options out there for you.
When looking through wedding dresses, start by considering the styles that suit you - for occasion wear, do you go for cinched in 50's styles, flattering empire line or wearable separates? What are the design touches that you love on yourself and in your home? Do you prefer opulent, luxurious fabrics or folksy designs and prints, vintage-inspired lace or glittering sparkle? Whatever your own personal style, the main thing is that you feel relaxed. The worst thing you can do on the wedding day is to buy a frock that doesn't fit perfectly. Remember you are going to be wearing this all day so keep it on the comfy side.
