Ronda Silk DressBest one shoulder Wedding Dress
This gorgeous one-shoulder gown looks slinky, but its high quality silk give it substantial weight. It’s the optimal choice for beach weddings or locations where you expect a breeze. If you’re looking to expose your decollate but minimize cleavage, you’ll love the asymmetrical cowl neckline. Other features include adjustable straps and bias seam details. The dress is available in ivory, praline, as well as in a floral print.

If you’re looking for something that’s both classic and modern, we suggest something like this. The lace of this sweet maxi-style dress gives just the right amount of a vintage feel, while the flowy skirt and sleeves keep it away from “old fashion” territory. The affordable wedding dress has some spandex, making it also a comfortable choice, and we adore the plunging neckline.
BHLDN Clemence Beaded Overlay Mesh Wedding GownBest High-Neck Wedding Gown for women over 50
Buy from Anthropologie, $1,650
Who says a high-neckline has to be stuffy? This gorgeously sleek BHLDN wedding gown gives the perfect taste of skin while still keeping things to the imagination. A chapel length train make it work for traditional ceremonies, and the pearl embellished overlay adds a vintage flare. The back has an easy hook closure too, so you probably won’t need help putting it on. Pair with some strappy white heels, dangly earrings, and your better half to make things picture perfect.
Zac Posen Strapless Pleated Ruffle-Trim Tulle GownBest non-white wedding dress for women over 50
Buy from Neiman Marcus, $1,590
Not all of us want to wear white on our wedding day, and that’s okay! No one will care when they see how gorgeous you look in this soft blush tulle Zac Posen gown. It’s full skirt is the stuff of fairytale dreams, and the fitted strapless bodice still shows off your frame. Made from nylon, it’s a great option for summer. We’re willing to bet that after the big day, you won’t want to take it off!
Cuffed Off-the-Shoulder Metallic Column GownBest celebrity inspired wedding dress for women over 50
Buy from Bergdorf Goodman, $560
If you’ve been searching for a Meghan Markle’s wedding dress dupe, this is it! Designed by Rickie Freeman for Teri Jon, the off-the-shoulder column gown is elegantly regal. Delicate shimmer calls for minimal jewelry, while the short sleeves provide a touch of arm coverage. Perfect for evening weddings, the dress has a hidden zipper and a low back-center slit for easier movement.
Annabelle Silk DressBest vintage style wedding gown for women over 50
This dress looks like it came straight from the 1930s. Although this classy silk gown is minimalist and simple, it’s not basic. The gorgeous satin-silk fabric shimmers with every movement, and the diagonal panels accentuate your waist. Saying “I do” in this dress will put your name under the definition of elegant. And at $151, it’s definitely what we’d call a wedding steal.
Everlasting Affection White Lace Backless Mermaid Maxi DressBest mermaid wedding dress for women over 50
Breezy tule fabric, floral detail, and a fitted flare bottom make this mermaid gown a vision. Spaghetti straps give some support if you fear selecting a dress that requires tugging up all night, and the semi-sheer bodice and sweeping maxi hem give a touch of drama. The train is stunning and not too long. Add a vintage-inspired veil and you’ll look exquisite.
Abaowedding Double V-Neck Sleeveless Evening DressBest Open-Back Wedding Dress for women over 50
Buy from Amazon, starting at $89
A draped, open back and glittering appliqué elevate this gown for any wedding. Because it’s sleeveless, the ABaowedding Double V-Neck Lace Wedding Dress Evening Dress works great for outdoor weddings during the spring and summer, but it’s not too revealing if you’re looking for something that has a bit more coverage. Whether you’re strolling down an aisle made of sand or one covered in flower petals, all eyes will be on you.
Heavenly Hues White Maxi DressBest v-neck wedding dress for women over 50
This wedding gown reminds us of a Grecian goddess! Its Georgette fabric is light and flowy — perfect for spring or summer weddings — and the V-neck and back are brought together by a banded waist to create an hourglass shape. A slit allows you to shake a leg when the band starts to play, and if the white color isn’t your taste, the dress is also available in light grey, as well as cream.
Alexia María Convertible Bow-Embellished Silk Faille JumpsuitBest jumpsuit wedding dress for women over 50
Buy from Saks Fifth Avenue, starting at $1,339
Can’t decide between a jumpsuit and a traditional gown? This option gives a little of both. Made of 100 percent silk, the detachable skirt overlay is perfect for the ceremony and pictures. Take it off when the party starts to enjoy unencumbered movement. The bodice has boning to highlight your shape, plus its sweetheart neckline gives the bust a lift. The back zipper is concealed for a seamless look, and the pants hit at the ankle to show off your shoes.
No Greater Love White Puff Sleeve Maxi DressBest wedding dress for women over 50 with sleeves
If you want some extra cover for your arms, consider a wedding dress with a puff sleeve. We like this one from Lulus. Even though the gown offers a fitted silhouette, the sleeves have a whimsical feel that makes the overall look sweet but still sophisticated. Crepe knit fabric, along with pleated details give the allusion of movement, and the front slit is a little sexy.
Adrianna Papell Women’s Knit Crepe Tiered Sleeve DressBest crepe wedding dress for women over 50
Buy from Amazon, starting at $89
Whether you have a simple civil ceremony planned or an intimate gathering, all will ooh over this crepe dress. The organza sleeves alone are showstoppers, and the shorter skirt lets you show off your legs. A touch of elastane offers stretch, plus the sheath silhouette looks wonderful on all figures.
OYISHA Women’s 2021 Lace Mermaid WeddingBest trumpet wedding dress for women over 50
Buy from Amazon, starting at $125.99
Exquisite doesn’t even begin to describe the detailing and shape of this dress. The long sleeves are very slimming, and the mermaid fit lengthens the body and accentuates your curves in all the right places. This dress is reminiscent of Kate Middleton’s regal wedding gown that left us in awe. While we love a stunning button-up back, it can be time-consuming and stressful trying to ensure that every single one is buttoned and in the correct loop. Thankfully, this dress has an illusion back. It looks like a button-up back, but it actually closes with a zipper. The entire gown is covered in lace and satin, making it a truly memorable garment. The Duchess of Cambridge herself would approve!
