I know from the thread on the encore board that there’s a whole bunch of 40 something brides out there! How cool that we have our own little board! 🙂
(I just couldn’t stand to leave it empty once I spotted it! LOL)

I’m happy to see the new boards as well! I haven’t been able to be on much lately as we are moving next week and have been packing along with all the holiday stuff. I’ll be back on more often once the move is complete!

I’m torn whether I should be on this board or the 30 something. Our wedding is in May but I turn 40 in August. I just think I feel more 40 than 30!! I’m also a first time bride though so not sure if most 40 somethings are encores?!?

So, if I’m 56, am I supposed to be in 40-somethings? Or is there a separate category for the dinosaurs? LOL

We got requests for 20 something, 30 something, and 40 something boards… but nothing beyond that point. So we figured we’d start with those three, and go from there!
If you’d like to request another board, please post to our ideas forum!

Oh, we have something in common. I’m also 7 years older than my fiance. I’m 41 and my fiance is 34. We get married in April and he turns 35 in September. I plan on throwing my new hubby a big birthday party for his 35th!

I wondered if there was anyone around my age on here. BF and I have only been dating ten months, but I know we are both planning a future together. I am eagerly awaiting a proposal, by which time I will certainly be forty (summer). I will be a second-time bride; my late husband passed after 4.5 months of marriage. I look forward to March 14th because my bf and I will celebrate a year together.

I am so glad to see so many over 40 first-time marrieds here. I thought I was rare. Guess we are a budding trend. I got married for the first time at age 42. And, I am glad. I don’t feel like I missed anything. Has anyone found any other good resources for being married for the first time over age 40?

I’m 40 and T is now 43!
I feel so comfy in my own skin now at 40. It’s both our second marriage so we’re encores!
We’re doing a destination wedding in August. Church wedding with bayside/ocean reception!

I am 49 and getting married in July. I will turn 50 in October. My fiance is 48. Second marriage for both but this is my first wedding. Years ago I was married in front of a judge before a trial was to begin.
I wanted to get married before the age of 50. I don’t know why just do.
I am getting excited. My girls, age 8 and 12 are my bridesmaid along with his 14 year old daugther. My 12 year old is my maid of honor. We are getting married in Ireland and I can’t wait.

I am 43 and will be 44 when we get married in October! F will be 41. FIRST marriage for me (although third engagement) and third marriage for him. Three times the charm I guess for both of us! I have no children but he has four.
I’m so excited about it. F has been great with all the wedding planning, even meeting caterers on his own! He says it took him three tries to get it right. I would have been in the same boat but you know when your heart says THIS is it!!
