Hi everyone.  Both my fiance and I are 42yrs old.  This will be his 2nd marriage, and I’m embarrassed to, say my 3rd.  (Hey, you don’t plan it this way, sometimes it just happens).  Anyway, a little background on us.  We went to high school together.  He remembers me from beating him in the spelling bee, lol.  We were in choir and drama together, etc.  It’s just crazy.  After high school, I moved to CA, with my then high school sweetheart, and spent the next 20 years out there.  I moved back to Oklahoma in 2008 and found him on Facebook in April 2009.  As they say, the rest is history. 

At my previous weddings, I never got to have my couture gown, or the insane amount of flowers I want, never got to dance at my reception or have a honeymoon.  He told me that we will definitely being doing all of that because this is the last time we ever do this.

We picked out my ring a few weeks ago, although he won’t let me have it yet cause he says he still has to talk to my dad first, such a sweetheart he is.

I am soooo excited!   Would love to hear everyone else’s stories too.

Oh, I missed this thread somehow. I was married last summer at 41 and expecting my first baby this fall at 42. Very excited! Married a younger man (he’s 40, ha ha).

Just wanted to give a shout out to my 40-something sisters! I initially felt a little silly “going full bride” getting married for the first time in my 40s, but eventually decided to just go for it and had a great time with zero regrets! Here’s a pic of me (44) from my wedding last weekend with my mom (65). Don’t let anyone tell you that weddings can’t be magical and special at any age! -Jade

I love the 40 something board. 

I am 41 and my fiance is 35.  This is a 2nd marriage for both of us.  We just got engaged 2 months ago.  We are thinking a Vegas wedding with just immediate family and my 2 daughters will be my maids of honors, hopefully in 2011.

I’ll be 43 and Fiance wll be 55. Third times the charm for both of us. But as he says the first wedding for us AND our LAST!!!!
We both agree that had we met 20 years ago, it would not have worked. Ladies you all make beautful brides.

@DeaconBride: Third time the charm for us as well. But unlike you young lady, I turned 50 the day after the wedding! [attachment=1250906,159255] [attachment=1250906,159256]
