JAMAICA — When you think of the wedding day, it’s not so much about your bride as it is your groom, but it can still be the perfect time of year to wear a gown, make a statement and, most importantly, get to know someone new.
“For people who are a bit older, I think it’s important to have a wedding to go with your birthday, your anniversary or something like that,” said Kate K. Lee, 32, a New York City-based wedding photographer who has been photographing weddings since 2010.
“For older couples, it might be more important to celebrate the anniversary of your wedding or have a big ceremony that’s more appropriate for you and your family.
It’s more important for older couples to be together for the anniversary than to celebrate their wedding together.”
Lee has photographed weddings for more than 30 years, from weddings for people she knows, to weddings for her parents, to wedding receptions for friends and relatives.
It takes a special photographer to take a wedding photo, Lee said.
She said she doesn’t know anyone who doesn’t like a wedding, but that it can be a challenge for people who don’t know how to dress.
“You want to look good, but you also want to make sure that your dress fits and that you don’t wear a bad dress,” she said.
“I don’t think there is a one-size-fits-all wedding dress for everyone.
I think people should go with what they feel comfortable in.”
To be sure, there are wedding-related accessories for every age group, from earrings to bridal scarves.
But, Lee cautions, if you’re looking to look fancy at a wedding you should look for accessories that will complement your outfit and compliment the color palette.
K., Lee and others recommend looking for things like a dress with bows, a wedding bouquet and a bouquet duvet that match the wedding dress.
If you’re a bridesmaid or other staff member, a dress that matches your theme is ideal, but not essential, K. said.
The best advice she can offer is to go into the wedding with a plan and make sure you’ve researched what to wear.
“I would say that there’s no one right way to dress for your wedding,” K. told NBC News.
“Just because you like it, doesn’t mean that you have to wear it.”
