    I think it’s lovely. I don’t know that a shawl would work well with this since it would be draped over the flower details on the shoulders.

    I have to say that I love the tone of this dress. I think you did an awesome job finding something tasteful, elegant, and age-appropriate.

    However, it kind of depends on body type. I could see how an older woman who was significantly overweight might be uncomfortable displaying her arms in that dress. If that’s likely to be an issue, perhaps you could look at MOB/MOG type dresses? Often they have a little matching jacket–perhaps that style would be a good alternate option? Is it important to you that all your bridesmaids wear the same dress, or would you be open to having them wear different styles in the same color and fabric?
