My son was 28 and my daughter was 26 on our wedding day.  The two of them were our attendants.  Even though both of them are too old to be living with us, I appreciated the support from them.

My mom (just turned 47) is getting married this spring. My sisters and I are attending and helping cook/setup, but there is no wedding party.

My Mother-In-Law got remarried a couple years ago and went to Florida where DH grandparents lived and got married on the beach. She didn’t invite DH or his sister and only told DH about it in passing. He didn’t even know when the date was.

  • Wedding: July 2012

I am 52 and have two children: A 15 yr old daughter & a 21 yr old son (away at college). My daughter lives with me. I was divorced 3 years ago after a 25 yr marriage. I met my fi while I was separated awaiting final decree. He has lived with us for just over 2 years and has been a godsend to us. He has never been married or had kids (he’s 15 yrs younger than I am). He loves my daughter as his own and is totally involved in her life. My son won’t give him the time of day. We are going off to the Bahamas to be married this summer. My fi’s father, my lifelong friend & his spouse and my daughter will join us. I haven’t even been able to tell my son yet about the engagement let alone a wedding. My daughter will be my Maid/Matron of Honor, though it’s taken her some time to get head head around the wedding thing. It’s hard not having my son on board at all.

I was married right out of high school at 18 and had my son at 19 and my daughter at 21. I of course divorced their father. im now 36 and getting married.

my children will have Big roles, actually doubled roles.

My son ( 17 now) will be an usher at the start and double back for me, and my daughter (15 in 2 weeks) will be a bridesmaid.

However, we decided that my children will walk in front of me with the ring bear, and actually my son will stop half way up the aisle and my daughter will take the ring bearer to the front and double back about 3/4 up the aisle.. 

 I will walk to my son on my own, then to my daughter along with my son.. they both will “give” me over to my fiance. We also have my sisters and tons of neices and nephews in the wedding.

my Fiance and i have a speical ring exchange planned for our kids- since me and Fiance have matching commitment rings, we will be getting the kids rings and exchanging them right after our ring exchange…so we will be marrying into a new family!

well, i am having my 40th birthday exactly one month before our wedding date..still weird as i have been feeling completely at ease in my 30s..well, guess it´s time for a new challenge – let´s see how a more mature and married Sonia will develop!

We both have kids from previous relatinships (we never married)  – he has a son who turns 20 on our wedding day Smile and i have a daughter who´s almost 12. She will be my maid of honor! She´s not exactly proud because she just “spalshed” into teenage world so she doesn´t know what to feel or want..but i know she will love the attention and the role! Besides, she´s incredibly beautiful :-). Our 4 years old will be our ring bearer Laughing and his son will be responsible for the music as he already works here and there as a DJ. 

This is my daughter

I have a son in his late 20’s who is a groomsmen.  I wanted him to walk me 1/2 down to my Father but I change my mind.  But, I might change it back.

I will be 49 when we marry.  I have a daughter who will be 16. He has a son and daughter both in their mid twenties and both married. 

They are heavily involved in our wedding, my daughter will be my only Bridesmaid or Best Man, his son is marrying us, our grandaughter will be almost 3 and our flowergirl. His daughter will be singing a song.  We will also all be doing a unity ceremony – just have not found the right one yet.
