Wedding dresses for mature brides

Looking for a dress for your upcoming wedding? Browse our pick of the most flattering, fashion-forward dresses.

Whether you’re 35 or 75, every woman wants to look good on their wedding day – that one special day when you are the centre of everyone’s attention. The dress, as we all know, can make a huge difference, and although you are there to celebrate the love between you and your significant other, there’s no harm in wanting 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. 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 bride’s style is different, and like a fine wine, we feel that a woman’s style gets better with age. Do not fear the frilly frocks that are aimed at 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 1950s styles, flattering empire line, or even a short dress? 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 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.
