 Only a few years ago, it was unpopular for a bride over age 55 (especially in her second or third marriage) to have an over-the-top wedding. These days, older couples are no longer tying the knot in subtle ways. 
   The trend is due, in part, by older couples being under "less" pressure than their younger, millenial counterparts to build their nest egg or pay off school loans. 
  The modern "mature" bride is embracing an "everything goes" philosophy and making sure that everything from her gorgeous gown to her blowout party/reception is top notch. 
   When it comes to "aisle style," older brides covet the classics (traditional wedding gowns - be it princess ball gowns or long, flowy dresses) but love modern updates that make a statement, but keep them feeling comfortable on and off the aisle. 
   They can feel stylish in any of the following unique, figure-flattering gowns.

For the bride who wants the fairy tale ... all grown up ... she's sure to find hers in this enchanting and elegant Oleg Cassini ball gown steeped in sheer romance. The ornate beaded appliques adorn the bodice and skirt to add eye-catching detail. The full tulle skirt gives the gown extra drama and movement, while the sweetheart neckline boasts a very on-trend, delicate one shoulder strap.
