I’m still here, awaiting the move. In the meantime, I’ve written a piece for the Guardian on the modern, fuss-free bride – and getting married over-40. Here’s the LINK. And here are some inspirational brides:

  1. Thank you Alyson! Since I am 100% certain that I will never again be included in a roundup that includes The Moss, Bianca, or Sofia, I'm just going to sit here on my sofa and enjoy the moment:).

  2. Love these but am baffled at Kate Moss having a rehearsal dinner. I've been assuring my daughter this is a North American phenomenon and here it is cropping up brit-style. Am I behind the times?

  4. Nancy – I think it is more of an American phenomenon, but Brits do sometimes have a get-together the night before. Much better to have an early night #thatismyage

    Thanks, materfamilias. You're a class act, too.

  5. I have to agree. Lisa looks utterly stunning. I adore a stylish bride. Well, any bride really. They're all memorable in their own way….Mimi xxx

  6. Always love looking at brides and won't tell you what absolutely terrible but addictive TV program I watch just to look at wedding dresses. Oh yes, how sad! However, there is always something lovely in looking at pictures of a dreamy wedding. It is normal to have a rehearsal dinner in the States – we just had a huge dinner the night before with family as a catch before the big day – loved it.

  7. I got married at 40; I think it is the sensible thing to do! I don’t think my style would have been any different if I were younger or older though… I hate froth and faff, so it was a really straightforward satin dress with some (but not TOO much) beaded bling on it. I loved it then and I loved it now.
