The gown really doesn’t read too young to me, it says elegant woman.  It says you want to turn heads, not pretend your a princess.  Very beautiful and classy.  Nice choice!

I totally agree with everyone else’s posts! I am turning 39 on Friday.  I will be very near 40 when we marry in March 2011 and although I was married before (courthouse).. this completely feels like the first time and is certainly my first WEDDING.

I am wearing whatever makes me feel gorgeous.  I don’t think there is any such thing as a dress that is “too young”… just a dress that looks good on YOU or doesn’t. I thought about my age in relation to all of this for about FIVE seconds and then I dismissed it.  I will not settle for anything less just because I lived life backwards (kid, then 1st marriage, then another kid, then divorce, then met Fiance, then bought house, now getting married!!)… I fully intend to allow myself every indulgence (within financial reason) that I would have given into were I still 25!!

Yay to us “older” brides living life as we see fit!

Yay for 30+ brides. Sometimes I forget about this board.

I love your gown. I think it’s very sophisticated and not too young at all. I’m 32 and got a full A-line gown. It might be a little poofy for a 32yr old but I don’t really care. 🙂

Beautiful dress, very elegant. I’m a 1st time bride at 39, and have been having the same underlying worries, especially with people saying to me “oh, we’re just surprised you’re actually having a dance” or “oh, wow, you’re going to do the whole wedding thing with a reception and all”.  ARGGGG YES DARN RIGHT!!! It’s my first and only wedding and I can’t wait!

Wear whatever makes you feel beautiful. I’ll be in a diamond white full A-line with crinolin and veil, the whole shebang. yay! 🙂

I am a first time bride at 37 and I say wear what you feel most comfortable in. 

I think that dress is gorgeous and looks very sophisticated – you should definetly go for it!

I think it’s beautiful!  I don’t think it’s too “young” looking either – that dress would look fantastic on a bride of any age.

I’m also a first tim bride at 37.  And you know what? I’m dang excited.  I had some guilt around being so excited for not being in my 20s.  But, heck, you only do this once (hopefully!).  Wear what you want to wear and love every minute of it!

Hmmmm, 38 is pretty young in my opinion.  Maybe because I’m approaching 31 and have many friends your age?  But I don’t think your dress is inappropriate at all.

And at the end of the day?  Who cares?
