dress for wedding for 60-ish woman
Hi all,
I am getting married for the second time to a wonderful and loving man. I am trying to decide what type of dress to wear that he will remember the rest of his life! I am in good shape, size 8 and 38D on top. I can't believe but I am really nervous. Thanks to all, Deby

I personally think any type of slip dress would be beautiful, stay away from the puffy ballroom type dresses. This might be a helpful link http://www.beautilicious40bride.co.uk/

Deby, at the top of this page is a link to "Dresses" -- you can get some ideas there.

You probably know what styles & colors look best on you every day. Go to a bridal salon and try on dresses. Maybe, instead of a "Disney princess" dress, a Mother of the Bride or bridesmaid dress in white, ivory, or champagne would look best. Ask your saleslady for suggestions -- you're not the oldest bride to ever get married, believe me!

Also, check out evening wear at department stores such as Macy's, Dillards, etc. You may find the perfect dress there.

I officiate a lot of beach weddings, as well as second, third, fourth weddings. My non-traditional brides frequently find their dresses in stores that are not bridal salons.

I bought a 1940s gown at a vintage clothing shop.

When you find the gown that makes you feel wonderful, you'll know that's the one!

Thank you to all, especially to Love is Real. Great link that you provided. Now I could use some help on the honeymoon night ensemble.

Long dress for this occasion, I couldn't find anything short that I felt was appropriate.
