Is your special day coming around soon? If so, we have a team of excited, enthusiastic ladies who are ready to make sure you look gorgeous on your wedding day.

For older brides, we have some essential fashion tips to help you choose the perfect bridal gown.

 Classy Silhouette

Buying a dress with soft, clean lines that flatter your figure is a much better option as opposed to bigger, extravagant dresses, such as ball gowns. As an older woman, you have the class and fashion savvy not to need the extra frills and spills.

How about a fit & flare silhouette? This type of style flatters most body shapes as the shape makes your waistline look smaller and your legs look longer.

Sophisticated Neckline

You should look for V-necks, bateaus and high scoops that do not show off too much cleavage.

Why not walk down the aisle in absolute style in a wedding dress with an illusion neckline?  The sleeves can be adorned with floral patterns, beads or lace appliques up to your neckline and all the way down your arms. The dreamy necklines cover the bride’s neck, bust and shoulders lightly, ensuring that the wedding dress does not reveal her body too much or too little.

Whimsical Sleeves

For both young and mature brides, long-sleeved wedding dresses are ideal for a conservative, romantic bridal look. Most designer wedding dresses are crafted carefully to be just as avant-garde as other, more revealing dresses.

If you’d like a gorgeous, yet daring, wedding dress, consider a long-sleeve wedding dress with an open back. This very bold statement will project your absolute confidence and beauty on your wedding day.

Bold Colour Tones

If you’d rather not go for bright white, opt for grey, silver or nude tones when it comes to your wedding dress material. Find a colour that will suit your skin tone.
