Hey! I’m J, aka Belle n GA, and excited to be marrying my encore groom. And heck yea, I am an encore bride!
We’re planning a really fun, intimate destination wedding in FL this August!
Let’s hear all about you!

Sorry, what does “encore” mean?

WendyS328, “Encore” means that this is not your first wedding.
Hi, I’m 2dBride, a/k/a Second Bride. NotFroofy and I had a wonderful intimate wedding in Massachusetts, followed by a much larger reception back in DC, last October. I’m an encore bride, although NotFroofy was a first-time bride. We are thrilled to be married, after nine years of living together.

Loved your pics 2d! Can’t wait to hear and see more of your wedding!
Any new encore brides (or first time brides w/encore grooms) in the house?

Hi I’m Jade. First-time bride, about to turn 44. Marrying encore groom, also 44. He’s a single dad to a daughter who turns 21 next week (!). We live in a beautiful home and have been together nearly 5 years. Hi to other encores and encore-marriers!

I’m a first time bride with an Encore groom. First time I’ve ever heard that term before. 🙂 Last time he had a *very* private ceremony with a few friends on top of a ski resort. It seemed very impromptu, but I think they had actually planned on doing it a week or so in advance. I think that’s why he’s putting up with my desire for a slightly more big/planned affair! Yay!
Funny thing is that I actually knew them while they were married. I was never friends with her, but he and I worked together and we’d always do things together (with all the work people) and she was always along. Funny to think about it now.

And…I just have to add, that I had nothing to do with the divorce! They got a divorce while I was traveling around Asia with my then boyfriend. After that boyfriend and I broke up ( about a year after my FI had separated) I needed a place to live and he and his roommate had an extra room. We actually lived together for 8 months, both dating other people, before we even thought about dating each other….

Me! My FI and are are both encores…with teenagers. I am the truly the luckiest girl in the world.

I’m a first time bride marrying an encore groom… I’m 31, he’s 51 with two great kids, 23 and 20. We’ve got just a couple of months left to go – we just ordered my wedding band yesterday. (we got his a couple of weeks ago.) We’re planning a fairly small wedding in an art gallery right on the water. Can’t wait!

Congrats to all encores here!
We’re both parents, love our kids and our kids are very happy we’re getting married, and are having an intimate yet very elegant church wedding followed by a beachside reception (a gorgeous top floor verandah overlooking the beach)!

First time for me – second time for my groom.
I’m 49 and he’s 55.
We met on match.com and we’ve been together for 6 years (living together almost 2 years).
We’re getting married at a beautiful restaurant on the Hudson River.

I am a 30 year old encore bride marrying a first time groom….we are having a destination wedding in Florida. We were originally planning on inviting 100 people, but I want to limit it to inviting 75 to keep it more intimate. Not sure how the family is going to take this since it is huge…but it is about him and I 🙂

Hey there-this my second time (hence the name 🙂 and his third. He’s 51 and I’m 43 and we have 3 teenaged children between us. Funny thing, we met on Yahoo about 2 years ago and he said he was divorced. Okay. Then, late last summer he turned to me in the car and said, “I want to marry you but I think you should know that I’ve been married, not once but twice before” Oh my gosh, did that give me pause. Have to give him points for honesty at least! The first one lasted about a minute when he was very young, so I guess we can kind of discount that. Maybe. lol
That said, we are eloping to Maui in December-just us and having a big family party here in Maine next summer.

I am a first time bride, but my FH has been married once before, so I guess that makes him an “encore groom”! I’m 28 and he is 44 and we have 1 insanely spoiled kitty. 🙂 Neither of us has any children, though we would like to start trying in a year or so.
We’ve been together for about 3.5 years now, and we’re getting married out on an island about 20 minutes ferry ride from our home this August!
