I don’t think age really has too much to do with it. I’ve seen 20 somethings rocking dresses with sleeves and 40 somethings wearing hip hugging dresses. I’m 23 and I wore a lace trumpet gown with 3D pink flowers through out.

I don’t know…I guess so. I wanted something that was fairly timeless and tried to avoid any obvious tends that are super popular right now, like sashes, mermaid fits, etc. I was 28 and I don’t think it was too young or too matronly. 

this was dress

I’ll be 29 at our wedding and I’m wearing a very form fitting fit and flare.

I’ll be 26 when we get married. Age-appropriateness or concerns over propriety/looking “dated” never crossed my mind: I just got what I wanted.

No matter how hard we try, ALL of our wedding photos will look dated to someone. That’s the point of photography: to capture the current trends and looks of that time period. Like a capsule 🙂

@badabing88:  I freaking LOVE brides that show their tattoos.  You look amazing in your dress!

@housebee:  Why, thank you, I appreciate that 🙂 My chest and neck are nearing completion on shading, and I’ll definitely have at least some work on my arms by the big day 🙂

I’ll be 24 when I get married. I tried to choose something classic and timeless.

I’ll be in my 30s. I think I would have gone for classic, timeless elegance at any age, except if I got married very young.

When I was a teenager, I thought it would be cool to be different and wear a white gown with deep red embroidery and panels.

I didn’t have a sense at that age that a wedding dress is not supposed to be a fancy-dress gown. I still think deep red panels and embroidery can look great on fancy dress gowns, but I’m glad I won’t be wearing that on my wedding.

I was ancient and am unconventional. So I dressed unconventionally and avoided any suggestion of looking (as my mother used to paraphras!) as mutton dressed as mutton. I was never going to suit a “proper” wedding dress at any point in my life though and I appear to be a stranger to the concept of “timeless and classic”.

@MrsPaulsBabyBallerina:  I love your dress!

I’ll be 35 at my wedding, and I’m wearing a big tulle ballgown.  I don’t think you need to take your age into consideration when choosing a dress.  Wear what you’ve always wanted to wear.  Just my opinion, though.
