How to Find that Perfect Wedding Dress?
Though there’s no separate set of rules for older brides, you might come across a multitude of senseless do’s and don’ts like avoid wearing white or cover your arms.
It’s essential to block these “noises” and focus on finding a dress that’s comfortable and makes you feel beautiful and confident.
If you’re one of those older brides who’s exploring for an outstanding bridal look, here’s something for you. Our stylists have listed down a few practical and useful tips to find an ultimate bridal ensemble:
1. Stick to Your Style
As a mature bride who’s seen and achieve a lot in her life, you have the experience and fashion sense to cut a dash without the need to go over the top.
You can opt for pristine and soft lines that enhances your best features. Fit and flare or sheath silhouettes are just right for an effortlessly chic and sophisticated look. It’s recommended you avoid overly structured designs at all cost, as it could look too over-the-top! Go for an empire waist to get a more elegant and “grown-up” bridal look.
2. Colour It White
Whatever your age, if you’re sure about carrying a white dress effortlessly, just go for it! No matter, what opinions you hear, white colour is certainly a great choice. However, you can experiment with colours. If you’re not sure about white, there are numerous alternatives available in tones like nude, grey, blush or ivory.
Apart from this, details like buttons, embellishments or appliques also help you to make a stunning style statement, even if you choose to don a conservative silhouette.
3. Show off Your Best Features with Subtle Accessories
We’ve met a lot of (older) brides who love to sport bold and attention-catching accessory, which we think is just great. But, it’s important to not feel the pressure to add them to your bridal ensemble just for the sake of it. If you aren’t sure to pull off the flashy accessories, you can certainly for more subtle accessories like a sparkling hair clip, crystal jewellery, waist-cinching sash or a vintage veil.
When it comes to being a beautiful bride; age is just a number! With a breathtakingly exquisite wedding dress and right styling guide, you can look ravishing on your big day.
