Does the dress make you feel pretty and can you afford it? Then it’s your dress, no matter what your age.

Absolutely not! You can wear whatever you want – whatever makes you feel beautiful – and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. What kinds of dresses do you like?

Edit: whoops I just saw you already bought a dress! Post pics!

@judya…you can wear whatever dress you like….it’s not tacky at all. It’s your first wedding, you are entitled to all the bells and whistles that comes along with that….and that includes a beautiful white wedding gown if that’s what makes you happy.

I don’t think it’s tacky at all. Of course, some styles won’t work (like a huge pouffy princess dress) but there are many traditional wedding dresses that would look beautiful.

I would love to see a photo of the dress you got!

I think you should wear whatever dress you want, especially since you haven’t been married before.  Your age shouldn’t matter!

I would also love to see pictures of the dress.  I agree with GirlwithaRing that over-the-top “younger” styles may not work, but I’m sure that wouldn’t be what you’re going for anyway.

Styles are so much more flexible nowadays….my mom is 51 and she just bought a long gown from the “bridesmaids” section at DB.  It looks fantastic on her!

I agree with everyone else!  First, CONGRATS!  Second, wear whatever dress you’d like – it is your wedding day!

*gets in line behind EJS to smaxx the person who told you it was tacky*

Wear what makes you feel beautiful – it sounds like you have found THE dress!  The only *rule* is there are no rules – only what works for you!

if it makes you feel any better, i’m having the opposite problem. i’m a young bride wearing a non traditional, casual dress. i feel like i should be wearing the big, white, traditional gown, but i just don’t want to. so i’m not going to. and if you want to wear it, than you should. there’s no right or wrong anymore.
