Older Celebrity Brides
It’s summer wedding season, and brides everywhere are putting the finishing touches to their Big Day outfits.
But what if you’re an older bride walking down the aisle for the second or third time, are you going with a big full-blown all-white gown or marching to your own beat in something unique?
It looks like there might be no fashion rules – thankfully – when it comes to mature matrimony.
Some like, Katie Couric, 57, who recently tied the knot this summer took a traditional route in a white lace gown. While others, like Tina Turner who married last summer, opted for a green gown with fishnet leggings. But then again, Turner is a rock star of legendary status, known to shimmy in skimpy leather dresses, so a white beaded gown would hardly seem to be her image.
We round up a few memorable wedding dresses that mature women wore to walk down the aisle.
Rock legend Tina Turner, 73, for her nuptials to Erwin Bach in 2013, wore a black and green silk tulle gown designed by Giorgio Armani.
Lisa Niemi, 57, the actress, dancer and author, who was married to the late Patrick Swayze, remarried this summer to jeweler Albert Deprisco. Niemi wore a stream-lined form-fitting white gown.
