As of August 2015, mature bride wedding dresses are available online at ShirleysDress.com, JJsHouse .com and AdoringDress.com. Shirley's and JJ's have several pages of dresses for older brides. Many have consumer ratings and reviews that discuss fit, quality, fabric and delivery.
Adoring Dress has a page of mature bridal dresses. Most are floor-length and have capped, short or long sleeves.
In the past, etiquette guidelines suggested that older brides should wear more conservative wedding clothes. However, trends have changed, and mature women often choose traditional, elaborate gowns. In many cases these brides spend significantly more on their dresses than younger brides do. Bridal experts sometimes recommend that mature brides search for dresses that accentuate their best features while de-emphasizing areas they'd like to conceal.
