Mature brides in their 50s, 60s, and 70s are generally more confident in their style choices. They have already made their share of fashion mistakes in their youth, and now they know what suits them.
There is not need for outdated rules and "dos and don's". Old rules like "don't wear white" or "you must wear something casual" no longer apply. Wear what makes you feel beautiful. After all, you are still marrying the love of your life. Your wedding is no less important than if you were getting married in your 20s.
Whether it is incorporating a bit of color so that you don't look so traditionally bridal, choosing a short veil or headpiece that makes you feel beautifully feminine and chic, or going with a nontraditional cape for a bit of shoulder and arm coverage, the options are endless for older brides.
