… she gave me a hug and said “oh, good for you!”

I think I might have punched her in the nose – condescending b*tch!

That lady was probably really embarrassed.  While wedding dress shopping, I met a MOB who was my age. I also looked at some MOB dresses for my bridesmaids since they were a little more flattering to ladies over the age of 40:)

That’s exactly why I got virtually EVERYTHING online/ I went to 1 bridal shop and they made me feel ancient! Hey I’m fifty but not a senior citizen yet!

Whenever one of my daughters was with me when we were doing something wedding related, they assumed it was my daughter getting married.  I think it’s a pretty normal assumption, and I’d bet it wasn’t a comment on how old you look. 🙂

The day I got married, my son was 28 and my daughter was 26.  And to make things worse, my wife is 15 years younger than me.  So when we walked into bridal stores, the chances of people assuming I was the mother of the bride and she was the bride were excellent!

Today, my boss asked why I would want such an affair of a wedding at my age (40).  I have been very excited about all the planning and I gave him my reasons BUT I have to admit I was deflated after that.  He said there are so many other things “that” amount of money could be spent on. Man!

Nice.  Some people are so rude!  I got married 6 months ago at 40 (my FIRST time) and I will spend what I want on my wedding!  Oh the nerve of some people!

I was married at 33 and even then most of my friends had been long married and some were even divorced twice when I walked down the isle.  Shrug it off, you have someone who loves you and really in the end, isn’t that what we want most anyway?

Quite frankly, I feel sorry for people my age who are preparing for their children’s weddings.  I think they just got married way too young.  In fact, if she’s younger than you are, gee, did she have kids in high school?
