I was 54 years old and getting married in a low key, family only ceremony. Went to regular stores and tried on a bunch of outfits for my wedding day. My friends helped me pick "the one" outfit, but it felt like a sunday going to church thing. Found a black velvet beaded and sequined Mardi Gras type dress at the Good Will for $10.00. It reminded me of a Mae West dress, and I felt like the belle of the ball.
