I am not wearing a tea length gown/dress; however, I did contmeplate wearing one. Here are the two that I was considering and also a picture of the gown that I am going with and the bolero that I will be wearing with my gown. Each of the gowns are from Justing Alexander. I am 40++, and I think that if you look good/great in something, you should wear it. Who dictates “age appropriate” anyway???

@noritake22:

I totally agree!  Wear what you love & the dress that makes you twirl.

This was one of the Bee’s dresses and now she sells them on etsy.  I agree with Noritake, wear what you want, I will be 40 when we get married and I am wearing a ballgown.

I thought about a tea length gown but my fiance is much shorter than I am and so I would have to wear flats which would make my legs look short and dumpy.

So I am going with an afternoon wedding with a lavish high tea reception with a very vintage feel – we are having music from 1920’s through the crooners and some whimsical touches as well.

Here is my dress (with me in it and on the model – the sample is too small so it does not hang right)

I will be 42 (still not sure how THAT happened) on Sunday . . .

Oh btw I tried on the “age appropriate” dresses and they made me look like I was in my 40’s and very mature

Ehhhh not good – wear what looks best on you and makes your heart glad!!!

Although I love shorter dresses and always thought I would wear one if I got married, I will be wearing something floor length — but without a train — to my wedding.

Since my dress is figure flattering, I would call it age appropriate 🙂 I will still be 41 when I get married in 107 days from today. 🙂

I wore a Nataya dress and I turned 50 the day after the wedding. Nataya dresses are usually around $200 – $300 and have a soft romantic feel to them.
