Whether you’re 35 or 75, every woman wants to look good on their wedding day. It is that one special day when you are the centre of everyone’s attention. The dress, as we all know, is the thing that you are going to be remembered and or criticised for. And although you are there to celebrate your love between you and your significant other, lets me honest ladies, you want to look like a total knock-out. 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 right? Wrong! Whether you go designer or off the high street there is plenty of options for women of all ages, shapes, and taste.
Every brides’ style is different, and like a fine wine, we at w&h feel that a woman’s style gets better with age. Do not fear all of frilly frocks that are aimed at those twenty-somethings, there are still more than enough choice out there for you. You just need a little guidance.
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.
