THE MATURE BRIDE

Photo by Lirette Photography/ Gown and hat by Amy-Jo Tatum Bridal

Because I create so many out of the ordinary gowns I love mature brides. Let's define maturity. Our bride is probably over forty, has kids of her own and is marrying for the second or third time. Ditto her groom so neither are likely to be obsessed by all the details of the traditional bash. Important though is a meaningful celebration and one very special dress that isn't layered in yards of lace and ruffles. Here are a few from my collection I thought would go nicely for second time around brides in a more intimate setting . . .

 Silk dupion sheath with a gauze sash and hand rolled floral has both a past as well as contemporary feeling to it.
