hey chicas – I’m 20 years old and just got married Saturday! wahoo!
I just want to encourage you all – because I know it’s really hard dealing with people who think we’re too young to get married. I got told that sooo much during my engagement. People said I would regret it, and it’s such a big decision, I should wait yada yada yada.
At my wedding, my husband and I decided to write our own vows. When we read them to each other, there was not a dry eye in the room.
At the reception, my great aunt told me that she could literally feel the love in the ceremony. She said the love on that stage was so unbelievable she had never seen anything like that…we got that from soo many people after our wedding.
It isn’t about age girls, but maturity. My husband and I were ready to get married and I feel great. We love each other so much and I was so ready to start sharing my life with someone else.
So don’t let people get you down girls, but instead show people your love with grace and poise. People respect my husband and I now, so much. And it’s an amazing feeling!

- Wedding: October 2010 - Ladder 15 Restaurant
Congratulations, and good for you for holding your head high and being confident in your decision! I think it’s absolutely the bride and groom who set the tone for the whole day, not the flowers or the dress or any other detail, and I’m so glad that your guests appreciated the love over all else!
Thanks for sharing!

AMEN! I didn’t get the “you’re too young” thing too much during my engagement, but I know some who have. I’m 22 and I feel just as you do, very mature for my age. I knew it was the right choice for me. My husband got the “it’s about time” line from a few of his friends and co workers. They still call him “Married Man”!

I am also a young bride, younger than you actually, I am 18. I know a lot of people will think I am crazy and too young and everything else but its what me and my fiance want. What people don’t know is that I have been with him for over 7 years and engaged and living together for 2 years. We are also paying for this wedding all ourselves. No one else is contributing. We are also going to be having a nice, simple, intimate wedding with mostly family attending as were not into big crowds, parties etc.
I think as long as its right for you then go for it. Afterall no one else knows whats best for you.
