Hi. I'm mailing my first batch of invites today and I'm starting to freak out big time because now there is no turning back (not that I would...but it's all the more real). I'm 42 and this my first marriage. My FH is 46 and this is his second.
Originally I started out planning something more on the causal/non-traditional side but I got caught up in wedding planning (thanks Wedding Wire :p) and we now have a pretty traditional wedding complete with a 10 person wedding party (5 for each of us) and a guest list of 115 (we started at 60 or 70).
I guess I'm just starting to get self-conscious and like maybe I'm being a little ridiculous planning such a traditional event being an older bride. For example I can't even bring myself to try on a veil because I just feel silly. It seems like most people on here are in their 20's or 30's, so I'm wondering if anyone else is closer to my age and struggling with the image of a traditional bride being so much younger.
