I found several non-white dresses I liked on http://www.newyorkdress.com (here’s one:http://www.newyorkdress.com/Jovani_Mother_of_the_Bride/153987.html) but ultimately ended up with an Alfred Angelo in ivory. I got to finally try my dress on this past Saturday. The lace overlay is beaded all over but it’s very simple.  I’m 53, have been married before and wanted something appropriate for my age, shape & location of the wedding (the Bahamas).This is my dress (wish I looked this young and thin in it!)

My dress is ivory.  The picture makes it look whiter than it is in real life.  I love it!!!

@undercoverjoan:  I love this dress, not necessarily on me though lol. I wore it for my wedding last July and I’m not a slim young thing anymore. What I loved: the gorgeous beading and lace, and the top actually looks very nice in pics.

What I didn’t love (on me): the high-low hem showed off my heavy lower legs 🙁 and there’s very little waist definition. I’m heavy but I do have a waist. I had a custom sash made which helped. It’s a pretty heavy dress so while it looks great for a beach wedding, it’s hot.

 

If I were thinner it would have looked better but it is a gorgeous dress for the right body.
