@nonapkns: Your family sound very old fashioned so tell them to suck it! That dress is beautiful!

I agree. You are NOT too old for the dress or for a veil. Last I checked dresses and veils don’t have wear-by-ages. πŸ˜‰  I am 40 and wore an A-line dress, opted for no veil. Not because of my age, but because we had an outdoor ceremony and I didn’t want it blowing in my face.

The dress your family likes is also lovely, but since your heart is with Sabelle you will regret wearing anything else.

The dress you have on in the picture is very pretty, but agreed you should go for the dress you want. Then you’ll never have any regrets! No matter what you wear you’ll be beautiful, and choose what you think will make YOU feel most stunning on that day.

And feel free to share that 60+ brides share your opinion haha. Smile

I agree with everyone else, 30 is not OLD for anything wedding related! I’m a 31 one year old bride, and very few of my friends are even married yet.  I have never once considered the idea that I was an “old” bride! πŸ™‚  I can’t believe anyone would say such a thing! When I read the titlle I thought you were going to be 50 or 60! πŸ™‚

Random aside, average marriage ages around the world http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Age_at_first_marriage – you are not far off!

I think it looks beautiful! Tell them to suck it up and stop whining about what you are going to wear on YOUR day. You look beautiful btw and not like you are anywhere near 30!

Wear whatever dress you love! You’re ONLY 30!!! Your wedding say is a special, exciting day and you want to look back and smile because you wore the dress that YOU loved, not the one your family approved of. My mother wore the dress her family told her was “best” for her, and she hates that dress to this day – 27 years later. When I went dress shopping, she told me to look in the mirror before I turned to anyone else for their opinion! πŸ™‚ Good luck!

@nonapkns: Um, are they flipping stupid? You are still so young! You can totally pull the dress off, and you are NOT too old to wear a veil! Do what you want, it is YOUR wedding lady! And on the day of, nobody is going to be saying how the dress was “too young for you”. They should realize how stunning and amazing you are. If they don’t, their loss.

However I will say, that I am totally biased towards your original dress, as that’s the dress I will be wearing down the aisle! πŸ™‚

P.S. you don’t even look like you’re 30 yet.

My friend who is 30 just got that dress. You’ll be totally fine! Also, 30 is not old. At all.

I too think the second dress you posted was quite lovely, but yes, it pales in comparison to the Sabelle.  And what your family (with all due respect, of course!) is telling you is rubbish!  I’m going to be 37 and I’m wearing the dress I fell in love with…and yes, it’s big and poufy, and I feel like I’m a living Gone With the Wind antebellum Southern Belle..but that’s OK, because that’s how I want to feel.  I did, however, draw the line at the tiara, but only because it looks like crap.  I’m wearing a cathedral length veil too.  I say, go for the dress you love!

Guess what, on your wedding day you get to wear whatever you want! Also, turning 30 this year myself, I take offense that I would be considered “too old” to wear whatever dress I want! I say go for it!

Ummm…. 30 is not old!  WTF??  If 30 is old, what about the rest of your 50ish years ahead of you?  Are they just MORE OLD? ughhhh…. wear the dress you want girl!  Be the poofy, girly, princessy bride of your dreams!  Tell your family to suck it!  I am 27 and I will be wearing a very poofy dress and I love it!
