    No. Not too much. And sod what other people think. It's *your* wedding.
    I'm getting married this year, I will be nearly 50, and to top that, this is wedding #3. I had a short and disastrous marriage in my 20s, then was married for a long time to someone who I was really unhappy with, but not I'm with my soul mate. I didn't have a wedding dress each time before - the first time was a rush.job and the second I was too embarrassed to have one as it was a second wedding.
    Well, this time I'm going full on meringue with awesome skirt, in ivory, and any judgy people can go whistle, frankly! I'm going to have the day I wanted at last. So seriously, enjoy your ruffles sister. Xxxx

    Everything is age appropriate if you look fabulous in it. Anyone who says differently should be banished from your wedding. Its your day! Xx

    Ruffles are not only for younger ladies. It is indeed your wedding day, and by all means, you have the right to wear the best dress for your best day.

    The main thing is that you are happy with it and you feel comfortable in it and wearing it. Nothing else matters ..
