HELP! Need dress suggestions for a mature bride (age 60) for second wedding.

Hello All!  My dad passed away several years ago, and my mom has found love for the second time.  She got engaged to a wonderful man on NYE and they are planning a small, spring wedding.  We are searching for a wedding dress for her...something appropriate for a 60 year old woman.  NOTHING frumpy or heavy sequins.  She would like full length with little to no train, likes lace, not too form fitting and not strapless.  She is in terrific shape - 5'8" and about 140lbs.  Prefers an ivory or champagne color.  If you have ANYTHING that might work, or suggestions on where we can find something appropriate, please let me know!  THANKS!!!

Aww Congrats to her and so happy she found love again!


What about a one shoulder? I came across this on Nordstrom the other day. I'm not sure what her budget is.

As someone in her age group, who was just recently looking, I would advise looking at the MOB dresses. MANY of them can be ordered in white, ivory or champagne.  Lots of them come in lace, chiffon and other classy fabrics.  She can get sleeves, or a higher neckline, back, etc. that may suit her tastes better and many are extremely elegant.  I fell in love with many of them on-line, but ultimately found my ivory lace dress at Macy's of all places when I was Christmas shopping!

I saw some beautiful ones here: davidsbridal.com click for link


 


They have a whole bunch of beautiful gowns. I am not her age, but I am not a spring chicken either. I am 38 y/o, so I am looking for classy and yet a little fun. After 3 kids and a car wreck I am now a plus size and I found 3 dresses at Davids that I love. Going Saturday to try on!

I agree with the other ladies. Macy's, Saks, and Norstroms make have exactly what you are looking for if not David's bridal will be a great option as well. Congrats to your mom!!

My mom likes this style, but the seller on etsy is Chinese and I had a really bad experience having my own vow renewal dress made in China, so we'd like to avoid that route!  Do any of you have an idea as to what dress this is a replica of?
