A Mature Bride in a Tea Length Wedding Gown

We have a wonderful wedding for you today, after Anne sent us the images of her day. Anne and Kevin got married in Kent in May 2021. They had unfortunately had to postpone their wedding day four times before finally tying the knot. The couple got married at The Oak Barn in the Kent countryside in a beautiful Eco wedding venue. As a mature bride in a tea length wedding gown, Anne knew how she wanted to look and feel on her big day.

A Mature Bride

Anne visited us with her daughters to choose a short wedding dress and with over 150 designs there was lots of choice. Suzanne asked a few questions and we got a selection for Anne to try so that it would help her make a decision. It was the second vintage style wedding dress that she tried which stole her heart which was Agatha by Lou Lou Bridal

I chose Cutting Edge Brides as I knew I wanted a short dress – as an older bride I didn’t want to look like mutton dressed as lamb!

One of the stand out features of this designer wedding dress is the stunning pearl encrusted neckline, which has a deep v neck at the back. The structured satin bodice gives way to a flowing 1950’s style full skirt and is finished with a pearl belt. Anne wore her hair loose with a pearl clip and carried a bouquet of white, pale pink and cream neutral blooms. Her shoes were satin and pearl slingbacks with kitten heels to complete the look.

It felt perfect for me – already a great fit and the right length.

Kevin wore a navy suit matched with a pale pink tie that complemented his bride perfectly. His button hole was a single cream rose.

The Wedding Day

As the couple had needed to postpone four times already due to Covid restrictions they ended up having a relaxed and intimate wedding day. With only 15 guests the couple enjoyed a family party like no other. Their flowers and catering were phenomenal which also made their day.

It was the dress that stole the show. I felt so special wearing it 

As an older bride, Anne was conscious that she still wanted to feel like a true bride but maybe not with traditional bridal ideals. This is where a tea length wedding gown is a great option for a mature bride. It’s a non-traditional alternative that is fun and sassy and very liberating to wear.
