    I am happy to see this thread, and to know that someone else feels the way that I do.  I'm not 40, but this is going to be my second wedding, but fiance's first.  I was feeling akward about everything at first, but then you know what... I do want a wonderful wedding.  (and not to mention that I didn't plan even one detail for my first wedding... didn't even get to pick the dress)


    Bottom line is, don't feel akward or too old or anything else.  You deserve to have a wedding day that you can smile back on.  If you would rather wear jeans, do it, or if you dream of Cinderella's ball gown, wear that!


    It's all about you and the love you will share with your spouse that day.

      Wear whatever will make you feel CONFIDENT and HAPPY!!!  Thats all that matters.  If you feel silly with a train and veil, it will show.  If having a train and veil is important to you and will make you feel like the bride you want to be, it will show.  You just have to love every piece of what you've chosen to wear.  And LOTS of brides are choosing not to wear veils, they are really not a mandatory object like they once were ....GOOD LUCK!

        I agree with all the other ladies Sascolo! You celebrate the way you want to. Age does not matter.


        As for the veil, I didn't think I wanted to wear one because I thought it looked silly but when I put the right one on (as a joke) I actually fell in love with it. Sometimes planning these things leads you down a different unexpected path. As long as you feel beautiful walking down that aisle to join with your future hubby, that is what is important.


        Go for it!!!

I am 23 almost 24 and I think you definitely should go for it...wear all of it! The veil the train everything who cares if your 40 20 60.... whatever your age no matter what number marriage this is for you its your day...let all those too old thoughts go and go for it! Thats all! : )

              I was watching one of the many bridal shows that I am addicted to and on one of them there was an 80 year old lady that was renewing her vows after 50 plus years of being married.  She looked fantastic for her age and they looked so in love.  She went and tried on dresses complete with trains and veils and though you would think it would seem odd seeing a lady at that age dressed to the nines in wedding apparel, it was actually the opposite.  She looked so happy and radiant that it brought tears to my eyes.  I guess what I am trying to get at is it doesn't matter how old you are, 20, 40 or 80, as long as you are happy and you are excited to see your mans face when he sees you for the first time walking down the aisle.  Best of luck with everything!

                Do what makes you happy and love.. age is definetly just a number.. and you know you will be so in love on your wedding day that what you are worrying about now, you won't even think about!

                  You have to do what makes you happy. Just remember this is your day so anybody elses opinions don't matter.

                    You absolutely should wear whatever makes you the happiest!  I think it's great and no one should tell you otherwise!!!
