Sharing our love for the more mature brides visiting us for your dream dress experience

Updated: Oct 16, 2023

Getting married is a timeless celebration of love that knows no age boundaries. Yet, when it comes to wedding dress shopping, some mature brides may feel the weight of societal expectations and stigma. But fear not!

Your wedding day is your special moment, and you deserve to feel radiant and confident in your dream wedding dress just like anyone else and that’s exactly what we have experience doing here at CG Boutique, Amesbury.

Here's a little guide for our upcoming mature brides - embrace your style and ignore the stigma when shopping for that perfect wedding gown!

1 - Know Your Style:

Your wedding dress should reflect your personal style, regardless of your age or history. Take some time to explore different styles, whether it's classic, vintage, modern, or bohemian. Trust your instincts, and don't be afraid to go against convention. Our highly trained bridal stylists will be right on hand to help you here.

2 - Be Open-Minded:

Keep an open mind when trying on dresses. What you envision might not be what suits you best. Trying on various styles and silhouettes will help you discover what makes you feel most beautiful and comfortable. We will guide you along this journey too.

3 - Use our Professionals:

Our team of Bridal consultants are there to support you always and are not there to judge you. We all have a lot experience working with brides of all ages and backgrounds and can offer valuable insights into what flatters your body type and suits your style, taking into consideration your personal preferences and needs too.

4 - Comfort is Key:

As a mature bride, in our experience comfort is most often paramount. Make sure your dress allows you to move, sit, and dance comfortably. Fabric choice, fit, and the presence of boning or corsets can all affect your comfort level, so it’s always worth trying this out and making sure our team know how you feel.

5 - Ignore the Numbers:

Wedding dress sizes are notoriously different from everyday clothing sizes sometimes up 3-4 sizes so we suggest to simply ignore the number! Focus on how the dress feels and looks on you rather than the number on the tag. You will be expertly measured to get as close to your shape as possible. Alterations then work wonders to get it perfect, so don't get discouraged by any sizing.

6 - Choosing Necklines and Sleeves:

While you should wear what makes you feel fabulous, consider necklines and sleeves that make you feel confident. Options like V-neck, scoop neck, or three-quarter sleeves can provide both elegance, comfort and style. We will be there to support you in identifying options so don’t worry.

7 - Customize Your Dress:

Don't hesitate to customize your wedding dress. Adding personal touches like a lace strap, sleeves, a belt or broach, can all reflect your personality and requirements. We will be honest with you and let you know what we think is workable and not for the dream dress you pick based on our experience.

8 - Surround Yourself with Positivity:

Bring supportive friends and family members with you to your dress fittings if you wish to. Their encouragement and love will boost your confidence and help you make the right decision. Rest assured our Boutique team and stylists will be your biggest supporters on the day too, so don’t worry if you want to come and buy your dream dress alone, we will help and guide you the whole time.

9 - Remember, It's Your Day:

Ultimately, your wedding day is about celebrating your love and commitment. Age is just a number; history is part of your being, your love story is what truly matters. Embrace your unique journey and the wisdom that comes with it.

10 - Celebrate Your Beauty:

Regardless of your age and background, you are beautiful, and your wedding day is a celebration of that beauty. Radiate confidence as you walk down the aisle, and your happiness will shine brighter than any dress.

We think that our more mature brides should never feel constrained by any age-related stigma when shopping for their wedding dress and we love having you and helping you find that special wedding gown just for you. We embrace your unique style. Let your inner radiance outshine any societal expectations and enjoy the journey to finding the dress that makes you feel like the beautiful bride you are.
