    I’m 34 and planning to get married in a mermaid dress, and i haven’t seen a skanky fit and flare dress!

    I was married at 27 in a mermaid. Your late 20s aren’t too old for anything!

    You’re thin…. you will look good in these dresses.  If anything, I think these dresses look more mature and less 20year old than an A-line dress does.

    Are you serious! You are not too old. Wear whatever you want girl!

    I also agree that a more fitted dress is more mature (in a good way) than an A line on your body type. Sometimes an A line can look too young and princess and it sounds like that’s what you’re looking to avoid.

    I don’t think you’re too old for a mermaid at all! When I think of a “young” dress I think of ballgowns, mermaids are for more fashion forward women of any age IMO

    I think you should wear whatever you feel comfortable in! I’ll be 27 when I get married this year too, and I do NOT consider us to be in the category of older brides. However, when I tried on superfitted dresses, I felt like they were showing off my booty wayyyy too much — but I’m an incredibly conservative dresser. Try some on and see how you feel! If you feel like you’ll be comfortable wearing it in front of your grandma and grampa, then go for it 🙂

    You’re not too old. In fact, mermaids and fit-and-flares are great for a bride in her late 20s or early 30s. It’s the princess ballgowns that are for the really young brides.

    Hmm.  I don’t think 27 is too old for much of anything…  I guess if anything, I think a big poofy “princessy” gown would typically be for a really young bride – but if a 27 year old wanted to wear one of those, it wouldn’t be ridiculous if it was her style!

    Also, we’re date twins!  Smile

    I’m going to be 31 when we marry and I’m wearing a very fitted fit and flare.  Rock it!

    If you’re a size 2 who is fit, you should be able to rock a mermaid dress, boobs or no boobs!  27 is definitely not too old.  🙂

    I actually felt like a fit n’ flare or a mermaid was more appropriate for at 28 then a big ball gown.
