Love it and congrats!!  My mom got remarried at the age of 44 and there were six children between her and her now husband–all of them were 17 and over or so.  Love the dress 🙂  I hate when people say if someone gets remarried then it shouldn’t be a fun blowout—why?  That’s not fair.  Enjoy your planning!

Congrats young lady! I turned 50 the day after our wedding last year. We had a grand time at our wedding – a lovely early summer eve wedding followed by a simple little reception. Then we had a HUGE pig roast the next day! Have fun and enjoy!!!

@prgirlpr:Good for you! I’m 44 and yes, getting married for the first time too. I don’t know about you but I get anxiety attacks when people try to monopolize me to tell me “what I should do”. I was engaged for 7 years to a man who died right before we were to be married (2006). I think by now at our age we should know what we want as much as what we don’t want.

Theman I am now marrying and I are getting married at the Pelican Beach Clubhouse in Satellite Beach with an ethereal beach, zen, water concept. (i.e. shimmering flowing blue bridesmaids dresses, steel drum band during cocktail hour, etc.,) Try to tell that to other people and next thing I know they want me to go to Dollar Tree and buy some God-awful aluminum hanging palm tree decorations!

Make it fun. Make it just yours. And make it a reflection of you and your fiancee. That’s where the real fun comes in. God Bless! And Congrats!
