are you crazy! of course its diferent!! you have been together for so so long and you are your own person!!

Maybe to really rub it in to everyone and make it public how different you are, you could make sure the vows/ readings are extra sentimental in comparison to a wham bam there you go you’re married type thing.

I think you should expect some inapropriate comments at the reception, and i think you should be ready with some light hearted comment or joke you can make to dismiss it. Maybe talk to your fiance about this so you’re both ready.

I know that I just had a family gathering where my grandfather mentioned something about having their 60th anniversary party at the same venue that my counsin got married at. (she is going through a divorce now, and wasnt there at the time of this comment) ..
the comment left an uneasy air in the room, so my cousin (the getting-divorce cousins brother) said ‘lets hope it doesnt set you up to end up like <cousin>’s marriage!’ … and we all had a laugh about it.

I think you will be fine. YOU know how different your relationship is. prove them wrong by having a long happy marriage!

I agree. You and your fiance are different. You can call and/or physically tell each of your friends and family members who will be invited to your wedding that you are engaged. This way you will have a chance to talk to each one of them and ask them how they feel about your news. This will allow you to filter out anything stupid that may cause them to not come to your wedding or to come full of mean comments.
