How to Choose the Right Wedding Dress in Your 50's

I'm not going to tell you that you shouldn't wear a white dress or that a wedding dress with a long train is inappropriate for a woman in her 50's. The truth is, you should wear the bridal gown of your dreams.

Choosing the right wedding dress in your 50's is no different that choosing one in your 20's or 30's.

You should take into consideration your body type, comfort level, and your budget limits.

Here is an elegant white mother of the bride formal evening gown. It is a great option for a wedding dress for women over 50. Choosing a formal evening gown instead of a traditional gown is a great option for anyone shopping for a bridal outfit. You have a bigger selection of dress styles and they are considerably less expensive.

They can also be worn again for other special occasions.

Do you have curves? Don't hide them in a long ball gown. You can accentuate the parts of your body that are beautiful and feminine without showing too much skin.

The crisscross bust line and sash around the waist make this dress perfect for a full figure woman.

Simple Ivory Gown

I love this simple ivory gown for a woman of any age. It is a great option for a petite woman. You don't want a gown that will feel uncomfortable or overwhelming. This style is clean and elegant but still has some delicate lace features that will make you feel like a bride.

Traditional

GEORGE BRIDE Short Sleeves Chiffon Over Satin Wedding Dress CHECK PRICE

You may want to wear a traditional wedding dress if this is your first marriage or if you are planning a large wedding. Here I have featured two beautiful, modern, traditional wedding dresses for women over fifty.

They both are somewhat conservative but have a subtle elegance.

Take a look at the cut and style of this dress. I love that it resembles a sleeveless gown by accentuating the shoulders but still has long sleeves. The empire waist creates a long slim silhouette.

This dress is made of lightweight materials so it's perfect for an outside or beach wedding. You can enjoy the weather without displaying too much skin. Available in sizes 2-18 plus. Also sold in ivory.

      It depends on the circumstance, the bride's shape, finances available, and how your face looks. I got married in a midriff top, at a chapel in Reno, Nv. I never got to wear my dream ivory princess dress. So this time, the last time, I'm wearing a full A line with sleeves. It may be missing some bows and frills, but it's going to have all the romance and whimsy, AND expense that I deserved the 1rst time. I am 54.

      Your selection of wedding dresses is beautiful, and I especially like the ones that aren't strapless. I know someone in her 50's who was never married and wore an off white dress. She wanted something different.

      @anonymous: Hi Tina Thank you for visiting and the feedback. I will be more than happy to change the word seasoned. I'm glad you liked my article. Best wishes! Gina

      Hi, I agree with you about everything, but I would like you to consider your verbage. I am a 60 year old woman. I am not seasoned - I am not a freaking bird...chicken...pot roast... or lamb dressed as mutton. Never write the word seasoned again unless you are using it for a cooking article or you are being sarcastic. I'm sure you're well under 50, so I'll forgive you. And, I want to encourage you to continue writing because everything else you have said is good. (Leave the word in this article, but consider calling us old farts or something other than "seasoned" in your next article... hey, it's just my opinion. You don't have to listen.) Love the article overall.

      I love the strapless dresses the most, although the Mermaid Lace one looks like a glamorous Hollywood gown.
