Can’t wait to hear your plans!
We’re headed to Key West at the end of July and tying the knot right there! Can’t wait! After a week of relaxing and having fun, we’ll fly back to ATL and have our reception, complete with cake and a blessing from our minister at one of our favorite restaurants!
All of our (our plans changed after the oil spill in FL, which was our original wedding destination with church wedding) plans changed, and our original bridesmaids/groomsmen will be there and we’ll also show our wedding photos and a video!
I can’t wait to hear how other encore brides are tying the knot this summer! Let us know your plans!

Key West sounds like so much fun! I’ve only been there twice, but it seemed like it could be a very romantic place – ocean breeze, those cute little homes, great weather and of course all the seafood!
We (FH is the encore-groom) are getting married on an island off the coast of Maine. It’s about a 15 minute ferry ride from where we live. The bridal party and immediate family will go over to the island early, but then all the guests will meet at the ferry terminal and head over to the island together.
We’re having a non-tradional Maine lobster-bake rehearsal dinner the night before on a rental house out on the island. Both my FH and I are originally from the west coast (me from Seattle, him from So. CA), and it will be the first trip to New England for many of our guests.

We are both encores, FH (3rd time) , my second. We are getting married this Saturday , August 21, after five years of being together!!! We decided on a small just us wedding at a castle here in Flordia, then honeymoon. Together we have 6 kids ( all grown) and a whole lot of grandkids….but we wanted something romantic and small. No reception, no guests just us. I am wearing an ivory wedding dress ( for the first time) and him a suit, having pictures done and a small cake. Lovely and perfect for us.
