Congrats to all you encore brides out there!

We’re getting married in April – 2nd marriage for both of us.  I’m 28 and he’s 33.  No kids, just my two gigantic dogs.  We work together but really got to know each other as we were going through our divorces last year.  We never knew we could be this happy, and both feel like we truely met our soulmates.  It’s unreal how similar our lives were growing up – we laugh because it feels like we’ve known each other all our lives.  ๐Ÿ™‚

Hello…This will be the third time (the charm) for both of us. I’m 43 and he is 55. He has no kids and I have a teenage son (who will walk me down the aisle). This will be the best wedding too….all about us. Although, he is the one pushing for all of the trimmings. ๐Ÿ™‚ We are giving each other the wedding of our dreams. As he says, “it is our first time marrying each other…and our last” I love him so much!!! Happy to see that love never goes out of style. Congrats ladies!!!!

Hello,

This will be my second wedding, although the first “marriage” didn’t legally count (long story), and his first.  I am 32 and he is 33.  We have no children, just two small dogs.  We both live in Northern California.  He is a culinary arts student and I am a teacher.  We are looking forward to our fall wedding this year!

Hi everyone! This is my third marriage, his second. I always say that my first doesn’t count though – I was 19 and we were married for a total of 3 months. Second marriage was 8 years long and this one will be forever ๐Ÿ™‚

I have two daughters ages 19 and 10, he doesn’t have any children but adores mine and they adore him. He wants to legally adopt my daughters… even the 19 year old which I think is super sweet.

@SoontobeMrsA I loved what you said about being part of a family!  I have 2 children, the Fiance doesn’t have any, and a few months ago my daughter told my Fiance “You make us a family” and it is so true.  I love knowing that something was missing, and now we’ve found it!

Hi Encore Brides!

This is my 2nd marriage and his 1st marriage.  I’m 39 and he’s 27.  I have 2 kids from my first marriage – a 13 year old girl and 10 year old boy.  We have a dog and a cat together. 

I am really lucky to have found my fiance’.  He is truly a wonderful man and he is amazing with my kids and they just adore him.

My daughter is my maid of honor and my son is a groomsman.  We are having a sand ceremony with the kids so they feel even more included.  Since we live near the beach a sand ceremony is perfect!

We’re very excited about the wedding and honeymoon! 

Best of luck to all of the encore brides out there is Weddingbee land!

Hello all! I am an encore bride, and a good bit older than a lot of you here. My Fiance and I are both 52 (well, he will be in two weeks…I’m older than him by one month.) It’s the second marriage for us both. He was married for five years previously and I was married for 28 (!). We have four kids and one grandchild between us (six when you count SOs). At this point his daughter, nearly 16, is doing a I’m Not Speaking To You thing *sigh*. I’m not sure she’ll be there for our wedding…keeping my fingers crossed though. My kids (28, 27, and 22) are tentatively scheduled to be there. All of the kids are out of state, in Florida, Maryland, and Pennsylvania, while we’re in Georgia.

We are so in love and so excited about getting married! There have been so many “speedbumps” in our road, but it has been worth it. So glad to meet you all!

Hi! My 2nd, his first. I feel like I must be the youngest encore bride – 26. He is 26 as well. Yikes!

Encore here too!  This is my 3rd, his first.  I’m 30, and he’s 26.  I’ve had a  REALLY rocky road finding the love of my life, but now that I’ve got him, I know this time is different.  People may scoff at that, but it’s true.  This time is forever!  We’ve known each other 12 years and counting….third time IS a charm for me!  ๐Ÿ™‚

@Cheeks11 you inspire me.  I’m considering a third marriage and have been real gun shy.  I know my BF would marry me in a heartbeat if I said yes, but some trust issues are preventing me from getting there.  yikes!

@heistheone:  thank you!  we are very happy!  when we first began dating, his brother pulled me aside and said “you know he’s been in love with you from the first time he saw you in 9th grade”!  it was the cutest thing!  ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi all – my first, his second.  We’ve been together almost 6 years… I’m 36, he is 38.  He had one of those scorched earth divorces 8 years ago, and he carries some wedding-related baggage that is making planning a leetle challenging… otherwise we have such a lovely life.  Hoping for insight from the bees!
