I am in my 50’s and planning a small intimate wedding. It’s my third time and his second. Although I love bridal gowns, I could go crazy looking at them all so beautiful, I really want to wear something different, like a colored evening gown or a floral one. The problem is that any of the gowns I look at are either:
Ball gowns (too formal)
Frumpy (I don’t want to look like the mother of the bride. I’m slim and in pretty good shape and don’t look my age..)
So basically I need some ideas as to what to wear!!! We are having a small ceremony in a museum and then a nice dinner out.

daksmom : check out BHLDN. They have some non-traditional styles that look good on slim figures. That includes their reception dress and bridesmaids dresses, which could work for you too.

daksmom : There are many beautiful evening gowns, even prom dresses, that would make great wedding dresses. Don’t get hung up on the label.
Carolina Herrera from Gilt
Jenny Yoo from Nordstroms
