As long as you don’t pick super short/”young” dresses, I think that would be great! I’d just make sure they got to pick looks that had a little more sophistication to them, so they don’t feel like they are wearing tiny cocktail dresses. After all – isn’t a bridal party about honoring people who are special to you more than an age or “look”?

Oh I’m a firm believer in you’re never too old to be a bridesmaid! All that matters is that they are there for you two on your big day.  I’m sure they’ll be delighted to be asked.  I felt the same way about asking my girls, we’re all in our mid/late 30’s, and my sister is 41! ( sorry Katie!)  But they were all so excited and could’nt have been happier..the more the merrier as far as I’m concerned!

Um…I am trying not be insulted here. I am in my 40’s, and 30’s is still very young! It might not seem it to you, but it is. Of course they ar enot tooo old to be bridesmaids!

My Maid/Matron of Honor is in her late 50s.

I am sure if you put it that way, that you want them to share in your day, they will be thrilled to be a part of it!

Definitely not too old!  Who makes these rules, anyway!?!?  my Matron of Honor is 47 and my Maid of Honor is 14!  They’re also both my sisters!  I’m somewhere near the middle at 33…  I don’t think 30s is too old, at all.  =D

I’m going to be a 33 year old bride so I don’t think asking people in their 30’s (or 40’s or 50’s!) to be bridesmaids is a issue at all!

There is no age limit to being a bridesmaid. If that was the case, then brides older than that wouldn’t be allowed to have anyone except extremely young girls as their attendants, which is definitely not true at all.

 

A maid of honor is single/divorced while a matron of honor is married.

I’m 33 and my girls are 26-36 years old so I don’t think they are too old at all! =) Would your Fiance be able to find out if they want to do it?

My Maid/Matron of Honor was 46 and no one thought anything of it.
