100% appropriate. 100% gorgeous.

I wouldn’t have pegged you as 40+ either way but that dress is beautiful.

A) I want to look like you when I am 41. You are completely rocking that dress.

B) It looks perfectly appropriate on you. I think that there used to be this idea that only women in their teens and twenties could look pretty and that as we aged we had to put ourselves out to pasture. Luckily society doesn’t think that way anymore, though it is still engrained in us a bit.

C) Even if it wasn’t appropriate, your wedding day is the one day that you are expected to be over the top. Wear whatevery makes you feel good!

You look fantastic in that dress. Every bride should be able to wear exactly what they want on their wedding day. Age is of no importance.

I wore a ball gown at 39. You wear what you want and age be damned. You look amazing in that beautiful dress! Do it!

I read the post title, then scrolled down to the pics, then looked at the post title again.  You do NOT look your age.

The dress looks beautiful! Rock it sista.

You look great!  I am almost 44 and I feel that the dress that makes you feel beautiful is your dress.  This is my dress and I LOVE IT!  I really went back and forth because I thought it was too young for me….but, I love it and this is what I chose!

It looks great on you! You can wear whatever you want at any age these days. Look at Angelina Jolie — 3rd wedding, 39 years old, big ol’ white gown — and she looked great. You look great, too!
