Ronald Joyce Bridalwear is loved by the older bride. Feedback tells us they love the classic tailoring, flattered necklines and quality linings. Our older brides are opting for dresses with sleeves, plainer less fussy designs and classic silhouettes.

Our Tyler dress, style number 18267 from our Victoria Jane collection is a Mikado fabric fit and flare gown with classic V-neckline and ¾ sleeves. The gown features a high back which our older ladies love and the look is finished with silk buttons down the back and a crystal beaded belt.

For a classic satin ballgown with all the chic sophistication and no fuss look no further than Andrea style number 69155. With a flattering ruched bodice, ¾ length sleeves and a soft pleated ball gown skirt this is sure to be a big hit and suit many body shapes.

If you’re looking for something totally unique and don’t quite feel right in a wedding dress then why not look at a trouser suit? Our take on the classic is Lea, style 18161, which includes a detachable overskirt so you can change the look from day to night if you wish – chic and modern!
