Latter Day Bride

Our more mature brides need not fret, finding a gown for the wedding doesn’t have to seem like a scary or daunting task. With our tips and beautiful selections, you’ll be inspired to find something that’s not only fashionable but complimentary too!

3 Tips For Finding A Gown That’s Both Modest & Stylish

1. Find Your Fit:

Use your wisdom to your advantage. By now, you know what fits your body type, so go with it and feel confident doing so.

2. Don’t Go With The Trends:

One rule to keep in mind is to stay within the more classic, timeless lines. Don’t try a  trend out on your wedding day as it’s not the time to experiment.

3. Show off the Goods:

As we mentioned, by now, you know the best parts of your body and you shouldn’t be afraid to show them. Beautiful legs, toned arms or even a stunning back should be highlighted – even when a modest dress is the target.
