letmebeeme :  Gorgeous! If you’re wearing long gloves, I would do a short flutter sleeve. Then maybe a fur caplet for warmth, if needed.

You both look amazing! I will be 40 on my big day. Nice to see you ladies! The over 40 board doesn’t get much action so I am glad to see you posting!

letmebeeme :  I was 39 getting hitched. Wore Ivory satin number and big ol’ veil – the works! 🙂

love your dress. Not much advice on the sleeves but I totally get the vibe you’re going for and it looks fantastic on you. I love peeky blinders. Can’t wait for the next series! 

Whats your groom wearing? (Or possibly your bride….I know one shouldn’t assume)

i’m in my forties and marrying a man in his. i’ve been married before and he hasn’t, but we both want to do a wedding, so we are. i am wearing a mori lee 3196 because it is gorgeous and makes me happy. i can’t imagine anyone caring, but if someone wants to disapprove of it they will just have to cope. express who you are and do things that increase your joy. people who wantot judge you for it are their own punishment.

letmebeeme :  wow you  smoking hot in your dress girl!

I’d love to see a bell or flutter sleeve. No caplets, I can’t stand where they cut women on the arm, and with you doing gloves, I’d keep it romantic and elegant.

I love your dress and the whole theme,  Ill say flutter sleeves would look beautiful!, im 37 and having a beach wedding!,  my dress is more sexy with a very low open back, but hey i feel beautiful and thats what it matters!  if you feel beautiful is your day!

That dress is stunning! I’m in my early 50’s and wore Maggi Sottoro Miela. I think if you go for something classy and sophisticated that suits you are good.

letmebeeme :  I think rounded off beaded lace cap sleeves and long gloves would look beautiful.

You look amazing in that! Post pics when it’s finished!
