FAQs about What to Wear to a Wedding for Mature Women
Below are a few tips and FAQs about dressing for weddings if you are over 50.
What color wedding guest dress is best for women in their 50s?
As a woman in her 50s (or better), there is no rule for what to wear to a wedding!
Just avoid wearing white. 😊
In general, women in their 50s look great in black, navy blue, gold, and purple wedding guest dresses.
What kind of wedding guest dress looks best on mature women?
Wedding guest dresses with an A-line silhouette look great on women in their 50s.
Swing dresses are also perfect if you have hips or a curvy figure.
You’ll probably want to opt for wedding guest dresses with a rounded neckline vs. a plunging neckline.
Wedding guest dresses that hit at your knees or lower (like midi or maxi dresses) are also flattering.
What accessories are great for mature women to wear to a wedding?
As a mature woman, go bold with your wedding guest accessories!
You can’t go wrong with a gold necklace and larger earrings.
My mom personally owns an expensive gold necklace that she calls her “goddess” necklace. Go ahead and wear it to a wedding!
There’s no need to be subtle.
What kind of makeup should a wedding guest wear in her 50s?
You’ll want to wear bright-colored lipstick (I love Constantly Coral by Revlon) and a nice highlighter above your eyes to brighten your face.
I personally love the L’Oreal Magic Light Infusing Primer for women.
If you really want to look good, you may want to use Crest Whitening Strips before the wedding.
