Older brides can be classified in two categories: pretentious brides and resigned brides. The first category refers at those women who want to wear something fashionable and elegant. The second category may refer at those who want something casual or traditional for their big day. One thing we do know for sure: older women are more mature and more exigent with the cloths they wear. This also applies for weddings and wedding dress. This field is of a great interest to our fashion designers of today. They feel challenged to create more beautiful and flattering models for the bride who is over 40 or 50.
These women should not be considered very old, however. Statistics show us that the average age of brides is around 30. Girls are not marrying at 20 these days. This is precisely why we can’t consider a 40 years old woman an old woman. It would be inappropriate to call them “old”, but more adequate to say “mature brides”. The taste of a 40 years old woman is surely more refined now. We can talk of women who have been married before. Second time brides who have passed their youth surely have more experience in field. They should be able to make their wedding dress selection easier or with more confidence. They already know what looks good on them and what not.
There are dresses that flatter a certain category of age or figure that mature women are more aware of. This is precisely why we can say that brides who have passed their 30 are more specialized in this field. Not all women want the same dress or look for their wedding. But there is a general line followed by the majority of mature brides. They all want a bit more coverage for their wedding day, especially if it’s a formal church ceremony. Those who have been married before may not wish to wear the same dress style, but something different. And if the first dress was a strapless dress, you can now focus on a more decent model.
¾ sleeved wedding gowns are ideal for mature brides. The sleeves will add more elegance and formality to your look and also provide you with a more feminine flair. You might as well consider a high neck wedding dress without long sleeves. This style is more adequate for those who don’t want a too traditional look. Dresses that offer more coverage for the neck, shoulders and arms look more age-appropriate. This is precisely why so many women think of these styles when shopping for their wedding dress. The modern mature bride has more options in this field. Don’t wear a matronly style just because you don’t feel young and beautiful anymore.
Offbeat brides are very excited about the new wedding dress trends they are called to explore. The influence of the sexy style is very present in the bridal field these years. One of the hottest attire selections for a modern bride is the short wedding dress. We don’t know how many of you are willing to adopt this look for your big day, but if you want to obtain a more attractive appearance you should try this style. Every bride should at least try a wedding gown with a shorter hemline to see whether she looks good. In general, people think that short wedding dresses are inappropriate for a wedding day.
These types of affairs are formal and serious and this is why a shorter hem may seem rather indecent or less elegant. But as we said before, offbeat brides who want to make a fashion statement and a big impression on their wedding day should consider this trend. All you need is a little bit of courage and a bolder attitude to be able to wear a shorter wedding dress. Now, it all depends on how high the hem is. The trendiest styles come with above the knees hems, while the classier choices feature a knee and ankle length. Our designers have many ideas at this chapter for the contemporary bride. If you are convinced that this style is for you, don’t hesitate to browse through our designer’s collections in search of the perfect above-the-knee hem wedding dress.
There are women who look fabulous in short or mini skirts, and this is why it would be wise to enhance this quality. On the other hand, there are brides who want to cover their feet because of different skin issues. In this case, even if you like the short hemlines you can’t afford to follow this style. Designer short wedding dresses are not just informal and simple. The contrary, they are very creative and artistic, usually embellished in a very unique way. You can find short dresses with feathers, ruffles and frills, looking fascinating! There is no need to opt for a simple and clean plain gown just to make sure the design is formal enough to fit a wedding.
However, if your wedding is a large-scale event, a short wedding dress might not make the best selection. There are also many churches that don’t allow the bride to wear something above the knees. This is a serious impediment for brides who want to adopt this style for their wedding. You should remember that highly formal ceremonies planned in elegant luxurious locations are not the best hosts of a short wedding dress, unless you’re wearing something vintage-inspired, like a tea length model.
Every bride wants to be the star of her wedding! Nothing should obscure the bride and her unique look. Every other female guest at the ceremony should be dressed in a simple gown that can not take from the bride’s outstanding look. The bridesmaid and the bride’s mother’s outfits should not overshadow the bride’s amazing dress, but complement it. To make sure you will obtain a spectacular bridal look you should choose something truly original that has never been seen before.
We have a few ideas for you in this sense. We brought here a few sensational wedding dresses inspired by the ballerina style. These fabulous gowns are based on pastel shades and this is why they look so graceful and sweet. There is nothing more romantic than a blush pink, lilac or pale blue ballerina dress for a romantic modern-day bride, don’t you think? These sensational gowns resemble the romantic beauty of Edgar Degas’ ballerinas. We are convinced that you guys will allow yourself to be inspired by these charming designs.
Who knows, perhaps you will discover that this is the style you want for your wedding! Giving the fact that the uniqueness factor is so vital for bride at this moment, we think that these fabulous ballerina gowns are worth taking into consideration. We enjoy the pastel shades used for these creations. The color makes all the difference, while the silhouettes become even more romantic and attractive.
White wedding dresses are the number one choice for many women, but the colorful styles that are popularized today are also growing in popularity. Whether you want to admit it or not, colored wedding dresses are more outstanding. A bride who wears one of these pieces can effortlessly obtain that one of a kind look we all want for our big day. We adore the idea of wearing a soft graceful gown that mimics the costumes of ballerinas at the wedding.
The ballet style is one of hottest trends at the moment in weddings. There is nothing sweeter and more feminine for a delicate bride who is planning a dreamy wedding than a ballet theme. The gorgeous Black Swan movie gave our fashion designers many ideas for their collections. This is why this style became even more popular and sought-after by our brides. We like these ballerina pastel gowns because they look very romantic yet comfortable in the same time.
Giving the fact that the ballet style is so refined and airy, the fabrics used for these silhouettes are very light and the skirts comfortably diaphanous. The first gown from here is made by Lazaro, the second by Peter Langner, followed by an Ann Taylor model and three designs by Dennis Basso for Kleinfeld.
