You definitely will want to check out the “Encore” section and you will no longer feel alone.

I have a 12 year old daughter but this will be my first marriage. My Fiance has two sons…23 and 19 and this will be his second marriage.

We actually had my grown kids (ages 27 and 25) as our attendants.

I never had a “wedding” the first time around.  We snuck off to JOP and got married quietly.

Now 10 years later we are renewing our vows at a Catholic Ceremony and going all out!  So I guess that *kinda* makes me an Encore Bride?!

We have four children; 9 years, 6 year old twins, and 5 years.  They will all be part of our ceremony and can NOT wait!  They’ve been calling it “our anniversary”  πŸ™‚

Second marriage for me and for him, no kids for either of us.

I’ve been divorced 11 years so it all feels new to me.  I had a wedding both times and wore a white dress both times.  He’s been divorced 1.5 years.

It still has it’s issues even with no kids involved. There’s a long history in between and parents do not adjust fast.

It’s not our first time down the aisle.  Fiance has two grown daughters and I have a 3.5 year old daughter.  You’re totally not alone.  I think maybe Encore brides (and especially ones with young kids!) post a little less frequently.  πŸ™‚

This is my second marriage and my second wedding ceremony, his first. I have a 2 year old son from my first marriage so I know how you feel. We’re getting married March 13, 2010 (only a month away!) and my son is going to be my ring bearer. Good luck on your wedding.

I am a 2nd timer.  I have a 7 yr old DD, and Fiance has a 6 yr old DS and a 9 yr old DD.  I’m having my DD walk me down the aisle, and his kids are also going to stand with us as we say our vows….I can’t wait!

I love it!!  Fiance and I are both in the encore catagory!!  I didn’t have a big wedding the first time and we’re totally going for it!  One of the coolest ideas I am incorporating into our wedding ceremony is having out children- my 10 yr old son and his 11 year daughter walk up the aisle together just before the flower girl.  They will be lighting the side candles in our unity trio before the ceremony and the Fiance and I will light the center candle as usual.  This will truly symbolize the union of our family!!

Both Mr. Neva and I are encores.  Between us, we have five children, ranging in age from 4 to 20.  Fortunately, all of them are excited about the upcoming wedding and get along well.
