If you know in your heart that you will not feel “right” in the dress, that’s your answer!  You do NOT want to spend your wedding day with some kind of age complex!

That said, I think the dress is perfect for you.  It’s soo figure flattering but isn’t “trying” to be sexy.  It’s not all embellished/flashy.  It is current, but the details are common enough that it doesn’t read as trendy.  If you can be happy in it on your wedding day, it would be a great choice!

I think the dress looks great on you! The dress looks age appropriate as well, it’s abeautiful but modest gown.

This dress looks BEAUTIFUL on you! Why would you second guess it? It doesn’t look like your trying to be younger at all. All I see is a grown woman in a beautiful dress! A dress that fits your figure perfectly. Get the dress you feel beautiful in and don’t look back. :)

I don’t think it so at all, you look great in it. But you still have to go with your gut feeling. If you don’t feel comfortable in it, keep looking. But if you feel good in it, then get it before it’s gone!

I kinda went through the same thing, I had this idea of what I wanted and the dress I ended up loving was something completly different. I think this looks so good on you…and age has nothing to do with anything as long as you love it ROCK IT! Best wishes!

1) Your maids are right – this dress looks great on you =)

2) You are not to old to wear this style (Im 40 and I would wear it!)

3) You want to feel beautiful and confident on your wedding day so if for any reason you are not comfortable in this dress, you should find the one that is right for you

Oh honey, i could only HOPE to look that good at 40. Seriously, it looks fantastic, and does NOT read too “young”. The style is updated and not stuffy, youthful, but not “sexy” or “couture”, and the details aren’t too ornate. I think it’s perfect!
