@futuremrsmejame  I will be 34 when I get married and also a Catholic bride. I’m curious as well about the challenges that you are having. Catholic marriage preparation has been a lot of work, but no issues.

I’ll be 35 when we get married! Fiance will be 33, first marriages for both of us. I rarely think of my age and I’m happy I waited. I was engaged in my early 20s and I’d most definitely be divorced now if that marriage had happened – my ex-FI is happily planning his own wedding to a great man! Life is funny lol

I got married at 34! My mom was beginning to give up hope, my husband and I had been living together for 4 years when we got engaged (and dating for 6!). ๐Ÿ™‚

34 when I got married last year (2nd for me, first for him). I definitely agree with the previous posters about not giving a damn about the details. Not sure if it was due to the ‘advanced bridal age’ or the fact that I’d been there and done that already. It was definitely freeing, though! Bridesmaid bailed on me? So freakin’ what. Silver shoes with an off-white dress? Fuck it, why not! My give-a-damn was officially busted LOL

I will be 35 when I get married this June.  Although there are things I do think would be a lot of fun if you are a younger bride, I agree that your 30’s is a great time to get married.  I have more faith in picking the right person, and I am very comfortable having a smaller wedding (and wedding party) than I would have been in my twenties.  Finally, I know how hard it can be to find the right one, so I feel like I can appreciate my fiance better than I ever could have if I had gotten married younger.

@futuremrsmejame so the fertility has nothing to do with being catholic, or is it you aren’t allowed to get fertility treatments because you’re catholic?

Does getting married in the church get more expensive the older you get?

 I was raised Catholic and decided not to marry in the church, so just curious.

thanks for indulging me!

@purplegurl  Agreed! I originally didn’t want a bachelorette party because I feel too old to be playing penis games and bar-hopping for drinks. But my friends convinced me that I should have one so we went to San Diego and did a spa day with only a little bar-hopping ๐Ÿ™‚

@futuremrsmejame  Oh, I see. I don’t want kids so that’s not one of my concerns in regards to my age. And we ended up offending a bunch of people by doing a “tiered” reception but I stopped caring about it. Basically only our immediate families and closest friends are invited to a fancy dinner after the ceremony and then everyone is invited to a backyard party a couple of weeks after we get back from our honeymoon. At first I was really resistant to the idea, but like I said, I DGAF anymore!

I don’t know if it’s too late, but does your church offer a simple ceremony (not a mass)? That’s what we’re doing and it’s free.

I am 35, and my fiancé is 36. We are getting married this weekend. We both feel pretty relaxed about the whole process, and we can’t wait for it to happen. I can’t imagine having gotten married in my 20s–even if I had met the right person in no way would I have been ready. We have been together for almost two years, and our marriage just seems like the natural next step to take in our relationship.
