Hi Bees –
So I’m a little different than most here – I’m 40 years old and have never been married. I’ve always been the bridesmaid. ALWAYS. I’ve always been the one to go dress shopping with, or the one to do the flowers, the one to cut off the drunk mom from the bar – you name it, I’ve done it. And now, it’s finally my turn.
In just 11 days, I am finally getting married. I’m so old the first weddings I helped with – we only had magazines – no internet ha ha!
But finally, I mean FINALLY I am getting married. All but one of my best friends is coming to our wedding. It’s an epic feat – one from London, one from Argentina, and even one in Alaska.
In my wildest dreams as a kid, I never would have guessed that I would have spent so much of my life being single. I don’t reget it – I’ve lived and traveled all over and have had many wonderful experiences, I just wanted to share them with someone and now I finally can.

Congrats. I turned 41 and I’m getting finally getting married. I’m soo excited because its been along road to finally met and be w/ my Love.
I have to say though that I’m happy that I’m getting married for the 1st time in my 40’s instead of my 20s. I just wasn’t ready and would have settled by marrying cause it was the right time instead of marrying the person for me. I’ll never forget when a co-worker told me that when you’re older you tend to marry better. And I have to say I definitely did.
COngrats once again:)

Congratulations!!! I hope your day is everything you dreamed of and more! My mom is in her 40s and has never been married… though I know she would if she found the right man. Reading posts like these makes me happy, because I really hope that a wonderful man comes along soon & sweeps her off of her feet. :o)
