It doesn’t matter what age you are when you tie the knot. Whether it took you a little while to find the man of your dreams or this is your second (or perhaps third!) time lucky at the altar, you deserve to look and feel amazing on your big day. There are really no special rules for older brides, just look for mature wedding dresses that are comfortable and make you feel amazing.

Feel comfortable and feel happy You probably have a good idea of what suits you by now and, whether that’s a full-skirted ball gown wedding dress - à la Sex in the City’s Carrie Bradshaw - or a chic and sophisticated vintage number, the choice is yours. It’s your wedding day after all!

Shop for your shape rather than your age Age is just a number; it’s your shape that matters.

Focus on your best features If you have fabulous legs, show them off! If you have a small waist or beautiful curves then choose a dress that accentuates the bits about yourself that you love the most.

Cover up if you like! If you’re not so keen on your arms look for mature wedding dresses with sleeves or add one of our detachable straps. Alternatively, why not go off-the-shoulder and make a feature of your shoulders instead?
