Wedding Attire for Women over 50 You Will Love

Happy Tuesday everyone! It’s that time of the month when Sarah, Kim, and I pick a topic for our Signature Style Series. You asked for it so this month we are talking about Spring Wedding attire. Let’s take a look at Wedding Attire for Women Over 50, You Will Love

According to Bride’s Magazine “Weddings will become more casual with less of a black-tie- feel”, and “we will see more guests wearing midi and mini-length dresses”. Dresses with patterns and floral designs are very popular this season. Make sure to dress appropriately for the venue and attire specified. Be sure you aren’t wearing the same color as the bride’s bridal party and of course stay away from all white.

Wedding Attire for Women Over 50 You Will Love

2022 is the year of the wedding, and many are being held outside. This first outfit features a beautiful dress from Boden, sandals from Laidback London, a cute clutch, and earrings from Etsy. This outfit would be appropriate for a beach wedding as well. This dress also has a skirt in the same pattern here.

Over 50 Spring Garden Wedding Outfit


We are attending a wedding in Hawaii next week and this is what I will be wearing. The ceremony is on the beach, so I will be wearing my favorite linen skirt from CP Shades also with Laidback London sandals, earrings from Amazon a wide-brimmed hat from Etsy, and a clutch from Lulus. No need to spend a ton of money on accessories for the Summer. Don’t be afraid to mix the high and low.

Fashion Over 50 Beach Wedding


This outfit features a pretty shift dress from Tucknernuck with a jeweled neckline. I like the juxtaposition of the two. I featured the same inexpensive earrings from Amazon, a straw hat and clutch from Etsy, and Naturalizer block heals. This outfit would be great for an outdoor venue as well.


This simple silk shirt dress from Wolf and Badger is dressed up with fabulous earrings from J Crew, Unisa block heels, and an ikat clutch from Etsy. You could certainly add a straw hat if the wedding is outside.


Over 50 Fashion Spring Wedding


Last but not least is an evening/more formal option. I doubt there are very many of these weddings this year but I have heard of a few. Everything in this ensemble (except for the blouse which you will wear multiple times I am sure) and Torey Burch sandals is inexpensive. You do not need to buy an expensive tulle skirt. They are all the same. I had an expensive one that fell apart, and the cheap one is still intact. FYI the great thing about wearing a long skirt is no one knows you aren’t wearing heels!



As I mentioned before, I have a hard time with dresses. I am long-waisted with short legs (a bad combo). Here are some dresses I love. I hope you might find one that catches your eye as well.

That’s it from my end. You might also enjoy my post here on Stylish Spring Hats for Women over 50. I think I need to update it again with new finds (coming soon!) I am sorry that I have not been showing any of the clothes on (me) lately. It is a little crazy around here. I will be back at that as soon as we get moved. Now let’s pop over and visit Sarah and Kim for their features.

    Hi Cindy,
    All such pretty looks and they seem like they’d be comfortable, too.
    I have that tulle skirt in black and beige, brown , I wore it to an outdoor fall wedding, it was perfect and I got a lot of compliments.
    Have fun at the Hawaiian wedding!

    Hey Cindy! You are so busy – moving and now a trip to Hawaii!! Maybe that’s not as big a deal from CA as it is from the East Coast.
    This post was SO GOOD! I have to learn how to do these cool collages! They are really great!
    I am also workin on a wedding dress post, and I want to link to this one.
    Thanks for the tulle skirt reminder – I found a navy one that is great!

    Cindy, I adore all these looks. Pinning away like crazy. We have three more weddings on the calendar this year … two over the summer and I’m all about your spring garden wedding collage. Love the black skirt with white shirt too … so classically elegant. Reminds me of Sharon Stone. I love weddings and looking at outfit options, endlessly. So happy you, Kim and Sarah covered this topic. I’ve got so may new inspiration ideas. My poor husband … ‘what do you mean you have nothing to wear.’ Sigh. xo

    Hi Cindy,
    Such pretty outfits. They could be useful for a number of different events. I don’t have any weddings to attend this year but I love some of the outfits for any dressy event.
    Thank you for always giving us such great ideas.

    Wow Cindy what a fantastic post. You have an eye for coordinating beautiful ensembles! I would wear any of these. I hope you post photos of you in Hawaii!! I feel like I struggled with this and you did the right thing just making some fab looks. It really makes it easier for people and I think it’s so helpful and needed! I am pinning all of these. I guarantee this post is going to be one of your most popular. I agree with Annie, I wish I had a wedding to attend! Always love doing this with you two, and frankly hope I’m worthy. xoxo Kim

  10. Eva popovich says

    These outfits are all very sophisticated and on trend. Great job!
    Makes me wish I was going to a wedding this summer.
    We ARE going to one that is the countryy, outdoors, in September… I’ll have to see if one of these would work. Maybe the wrap dress!

    • Cindy Hattersley says

      Hi Eva

      September is such a beautiful time for weddings. Both of my children got married in September!

  11. Annie Diamond says

    Cindy, This is making me wish I had a wedding to attend this spring! Especially a garden or beach wedding! So many good ideas!

    • Cindy Hattersley says

      Hi Annie

      Your kids are still babies…just wait until the weddings start happening all at once!

  12. joan says

    Thank you for all the work you put into these posts! I find them so helpful, and I have 2 weddings to attend next month. I only wish I was attending on in Hawaii! But I will actually be going to one in California, and have planned to spend a couple of days in Carmel. Can’t wait!!

    • Cindy Hattersley says

      Hi Joan

      Enjoy your wedding out here and Carmel. You will love it. Let me know if you need any suggestions for places to visit!

    Funny, but I just wore the “Evening Wedding” butterfly skirt this past weekend. I wore the white and black version to a dinner-dance event. I received many compliments. The quality of this skirt, for that price, is unbelievable. In fact, I have 4 different versions of this skirt in different patterns and colors. I intend on wearing the butterfly skirt in cream and taupe for my son’s wedding. Who’d have thought – $40 for a wedding outfit. BTW, I just bought the shell purse that you mentioned above, to go with it. Thank you, your blog came at just the right time.

    • Cindy Hattersley says

      Hi Christine

      Aren’t those skirts fun. I think tulle is tulle and I would not pay a lot of money for one.

    • Cindy Hattersley says

      Hi Francesca

      So sorry I am so late in responding. We have been busy…busy!
