If you are planning a beach wedding and you fear at the thought that you won’t be able to find any wedding dress to wear on the beach if you are over 50 years old, don’t panic.

There are plenty designs and styles for mature bride destinations wedding dresses that you can choose from. In fact, ocean or seaside themed weddings are the most popular locations for wedding affairs of today and that is why so many styles are available for these themes. You don’t have to go on with that misconceived or preconceived idea or saying that only slim, young or first time brides can find the wedding dress of their dreams.

These days the range of fabrics, colors, shapes, lengths, necklines, sleeves, skirts and bodices for wedding dresses is getting wider and wider. Assuming that you decided to get married later in life and now you’re planning a more exotic and natural wedding on a beach, island, coast or cruise, the chances of finding a wedding dress to wear on the beach if you are over 50 are as higher as for any other type of bride.

Full figure brides, corpulent brides, mature brides, pregnant brides or petite brides who are planning a destination wedding have a vast variety of beach wedding dresses to choose from. It all depends on what style you may prefer and what your body shape and figure is, after all. If you have a full or a corpulent figure, you can opt for a charming romantic and inspiring ankle length flowing empire waist wedding dress.

This style is perfect for plus size brides, for petite bride, for brides without a too defined waist lien and for those expecting brides too. The empire waist will draw the attention from the stomach area and lead the eyes towards the flowing line of the slim dress. If you don’t feel comfortable at the thought that the skin on your shoulders and arms will be fully exposed, you can opt for a beach wedding dress with sleeves. Don’t worry, you don’t have to wear a long, lavish and evasive type of sleeves.

There are many styles of sleeves that have a more refined, dainty, classy and soft appearance, that can go perfectly well with the natural, hot and yet breezy weather from the beach. You can opt for a cap sleeved mature wedding dress if you are confident with your arms and just want to cover the shoulder a little bit, or you can wear T-shirt or a petal sleeved beach wedding dress for a more elegant, sassy, stylish, chic and comfortable look and feel.

Choose a bateau, high neck, portrait, one shoulder, scooped, off the shoulders, square or jewel neckline wedding dress, depending on how much skin you are willing to show and how sexy, sensual or elegant you want to look. Keep in mind that the most suitable lengths for beach wedding dresses are ankle lengths, tea lengths, knee lengths or above the knee lengths. The most suitable one for you would be the ankle length or the tea length wedding dress.11

    Are these wedding dresses for women over 50? I get it why on the beach. But over 50? This I can’t imagine. Maybe because the women over 50 I know will definitely wear something chic, not white and not even that short as the dresses in the first image or that long as the last dress. I think they would go for more classical cuts and and a certain elegance and sobriety. Something maybe like the first wedding attire in the first picture. That suit is simple yet the little details make it fit for a wedding. The buttons are really nice and the hem of the skirt. The line is classical and I think the whole attire is pretty comfortable.
