@lollygagon:  Love your dress!

@Mrs.Thibs:  I would say, shop a dress that flatters your body silhouette. 🙂 Age is a number which doesn’t get to dictate our fashion sense. I’d say, look into your closet to see what kinds of dresses you’d normally wear and go from there. (An advice a coworker gave me)

In the Gregorian calendar, I’m 29 now, but will be 30 at the wedding. In the lunar calendar though, I’m already 30 and will be 31 at the wedding. (Confusing you yet? lol, I was 28 when I bought the dress)

Here’s a stock photo of the dress I’m choosing since I’m going for a 1950s theme. David’s Bridal Oleg Cassini CMK-513. I mostly bought it because it was SUPER comfortable! I discovered that I wasn’t too fond of long trains.

I’m 34 and I say wearing a wedding dress in your 30s is awesome!  You’re young enough to wear whatever you want, and wise enough to know what you totally rock in!

@Mrs.Thibs:  I was 33 on my wedding day and I wore a princess gown. Although I initally wanted a fit and flare lace dress, once I put on a princess/aline/ballgown I didn’t look back and never thought it was too “young” on me.

I say try on lots of dresses and pick the one that flatters and makes you the most happy 🙂

This is my Justin Alexander dress. 

I agree with what others have said, I don’t feel like 30 is old to get married. 

Wear whatever you love and makes you feel good!

I was 38 when I got married and while I’m not pretending that I’m super young, I didn’t feel that old either. All my closest friends got married in their mid-30s. so I wasn’t that much older than them.

Where I live, if someone gets married in their early 20s you’d assume that they are religious or very conservative – all the people I know who got married at that age would fit into that category.

As for the dress, I think it’s about dressing for who you are rather than your age. That said, if I saw a 30+ bride in a big pink sparkly frilly Big Fat Gypsy Wedding dress, I’d be rather woried that her tastes hadn’t evolved from when she was a little girl. So I think there’s no shame in dressing like a 30 or a 40-year-old woman – because that should mean that you know what suits you, what looks classy and what is the right kind of flaunting and style, you know?

So, with that in mind, some will probably think my dresses look old lady. I know they are not typically bridal. But I never wanted to wear a typical wedding dress, not even when I was a young girl, and I never wanted to wear white. I thought they suited the kind of quirky wedding we ended up having, and what my personal style is like.

I was 32 when we got married and age didn’t factor into my dress decision for even a moment. I was most concerned with getting a dress that fit my venue (literally, it was a small place and a huge gown just would’t work), my personal style (classic with a modern twist), my budget, and that made me feel gorgeous.

I loved my dress! It was comfortable and felt so “me”. It wasn’t a “bridal gown” and I did feel like some of the bridal gowns I did try on were too “young” for me. I agree with the previous posts – wear what you love, what makes you feel beautiful, and what makes you feel like you!

You should wear whatever you want! I wore a ballgown and no one said I was too old for the dress, everyone told me what a beautiful bride I was.
