My dress is now discontinued. For my hair, I went with flowers (a ranunculus and craspidia).

Here is my dress and me in a long veil – I think the long veil gets lost in the dress so will be wearing a shorter veil (fingertip) for the ceremony and then possibly these hair flowers for the reception

And this is how my hair will look from the back

This is my dress (wedding this coming weekend)….

And I’ll be wearing this hair comb (no veil and hair won’t be so sloppy)…

I turned 40 this past March, but I have to say – I’m not sure there is an “age appropriate” wedding gown.  Wear something that makes you feel beautiful and special regardless of your age!

@qtinthebeach: You are absolutely GORGEOUS in your dress which makes it BEYOND age appropriate – WOW!

Hoping some of the younger bees see this and realize 40 is not a death sentence LOL

Wow I’m not 40+ but can I just say that you ladies do not look 40+??

You seriously look like thirty, maybe.

I dont understand.  I will be 41 when I get married, for the very first time.  Why do people think that I should wear something different just because I am older??  Is that to say that I casn’t have my ball gown because I am over a certain age?
