Are you a soon-to-be mature bride? Are you over 50 and getting married?
As the bride, you want to look a total knockout on your wedding day, regardless of age and regardless of whether you are marrying for the first time, for the second time, or even for the fifth time…
Because Cyndy and Jan are over 50. Over 60, actually, they understand your needs for your Big Day and have gone the extra mile to find you the fabulous frock that will ensure you not only look stunning and oh-so-sensational, but also appropriate.
We know that if you are a bride over 50, your wedding plans may involve an intimate religious or civil marriage service followed by a lunch for your closest family, or you may be planning a big party for all your friends and family, or you are hoping to fly off for a romantic beach wedding for just the two of you.
Whatever you are doing to mark this very special day in your life, you want to look impossibly gorgeous and glamorous. At SoSensational, we understand that what you want is something chic and elegant but still discernibly bridal.
While the box marked “Big meringue dress in white” may not get a tick, the phrase “discernibly bridal” takes us to fabric and colour, both of which are important. Among our favourite labels for older and second-time around brides are Coast, Phase Eight, Gina Bacconi at John Lewis and Jacques Vert.
But as well as those brands, SoSensational has looked across many less-obvious brands (less-obvious in the sense that you wouldn’t expect them to have dresses or outfits for bridal wear) to truffle out stunning dresses and outfits that you may consider perfect for your wedding day.
When it comes to colour, Jan and Cyndy think you probably want a shade in the white/cream/pastel range, though a good friend of Jan’s looked stunning when she remarried in silver grey, and a thrice-married friend of Cyndy’s chose a gorgeous red. If you prefer a shade like grey , navy, red, or even black you will find gorgeous outfits in those colours on the Mother of the Bride Shopping pages.
If you are a Petite, SoSensational has found you beautiful dresses and outfits that are perfect for your special day. Keep in mind that a single colour from neckline to hemline will make you look taller, and also consider that you may need the services of a dressmaker to ensure a perfect fit!
And, naturally, if you are a Plus Size we have found beautiful dresses and outfits for you. As with Petites, do consider the idea of finding a dressmaker to make any necessary alterations to ensure an absolutely perfect fit.
While, for you, too, a single colour from neckline to hemline can make you appear taller and slimmer, you may wish to wear an outfit with a different colour top and bottom half to camouflage any disproportion and also to highlight your best features. If you are generously endowed bosom-wise, consider wearing a lower, scooped-out neckline as it will always be more flattering than a very high neck.
