    No wear whatever you like

    Yes you need something more age appropriate

    This is what you ought to be looking at! (Please show me your suggestion)

    This doesn’t strike me as an exclusively “young” dress. I think it would look lovely on you. Is it lavendar/gray?

    I think you’re beautiful and would look like a lovely bride in that dress. If you’re having a hard time shaking fear of judgement, you could always wear a simple sheer bolero over the dress, or maybe have cap sleeves added in the same material as the sheer layers in the front. I don’t think it’s inappropriate for your age though.

    Wear what makes you happy! I don’t see anything inappropriate about it.

    I think it works, but I don’t think totally bare above the bustline would work.  I think an ornate, large-ish necklace, would pull it all together.  This sort of idea.

    @Blackie:  That’s not an over-the-top princessy gown, so I think it’s appropriate for the over 25 crowd. Some of the ballgowns just scream “Disney princess” with their sparkly ruffly tulle-y details, and those I think of as “young” dresses.

    Try it without that hideous flower belt, it’s just too much for anyone who isn’t 6′ tall.

    @Blackie:  Yep – the right necklace suddenly makes it stately, instead of girlish/youthful or whatever.

    @Blackie:  I love the flower belt! But, as PPs have said, you might want to break up the all-bare above-bust area 🙂
