@Mrs.Thibs:  IMO over 30 brides can still do an elegant ballgown, maybe not a princess foo-foo, but something elegant, why not? I’m gettting for the second time and we’re having an exceptionally small weding, so I went with a short dress. It stops at the bottom of my knee.

I was 32 when we got married over the summer. I didn’t let my age stop me from trying on all sorts of dresses and styles, nor did it stop me from getting my gorgeous dress.  I say get what you want and what you love!!

I dont know where you live but in my neck of the woods, 32 isn’t an “older” bride.  Women are delaying marriage for lots of valid reasons and lots of my friends/relatives are marrying around that age. My friends around the 22-26  year mark tell me their colleagues/classmates are surprised they’re married.  I’m guessing this is a regional thing? Considering a 32 year old woman can probably afford a more expensive gown than her 22 year old counterpart, I say buy the biggest, frilliest, poofiest gown you can find!!

I don’t thing age matters one bit.  ITA–get the dress that makes you feel beautiful!

31 isn’t old maid age around here (yet!?)  I didn’t even think about the fact dresses might be too “young” for me.

@Mrs.Thibs:  What’s most important is how you feel in the dress. Try any/everything on and pick one you love. I don’t think you fall into the “mature bride” age bracket yet by any means. Good luck!!!
