I’ll be turning 37 in a couple weeks and my wedding in is September. He’ll be 34. First for him, but I had a short awful marriage in my early 20s. We will also have a Catholic wedding, but in our case it’s saving us tons of money. I, too, worry about starting to have babies at this age. A bit of pressure from the church to get started right away, but mostly I worry about complications.
I also feel like I’m a bit too old to enjoy all the fun stuff. I’m not sure why, but there it is.

I will be 37 and he will be 35 when we get married in november. It’s the second for me and the first for him. No kids yet for either of us. I’m so glad we’ve found each other even if its taken until my late thirties. The only downside is I wish we had more time after we’re married to enjoy married life, just the two of us. My age definitely puts on the pressure to start trying for kids right away.

It boggled people’s minds that I didn’t want bridesmaids or a flower girl or anything. His parents walked down the aisle first and then my mom and I. It was perfect!
I had turned 33 the month before our wedding. We had been together for 7 years.

People think it’s weird that I’m not having bridesmaids too – including a couple of my good friends. My best friend from high school’s MOM (really – we are 32 years old!) chewed me out for not having her daughter as my Maid/Matron of Honor because I was hers. And another of my close friends acted like her feelings were hurt – but when I talked about the inconvenience and cost of being a BM/MOH, she seemed more ok with it.
It’s just so much EASIER!! And if I didn’t have an adorable 4 year old niece, we wouldn’t have a flower girl either.

My fiance proposed while we were on vacation for my 35th birthday. We are only a few months apart in age, and our wedding will take place next May, with his 36th the month before in April and mine upcoming in August. It will be my second marriage, his first (although he was engaged once before). I am more excited this time around than I was the first time.

Congratulations! I just wondered, how did you know it wasn’t right with your ex? I very recently broke off my engagement (i’m 30), and i’m really struggling with whether or not i’ve made the right decision. Thanks

So glad to find this thread! I’m 31 and just got engaged yesterday. We are expecting a baby in February so we may not get married for a year or more, which means I’ll probably be 33 at least. I always feel so old, but I’m glad I waited now that I know all those exes weren’t going to be the right one!
