Most of the brides I see on this website are in their 20's and 30's. I will be 54 years old on my wedding day, and I've never been married before. I'm thrilled to finally be getting married; I never thought I would. Planning hasn't been all that different. My sister will still be my maid of honor, as I always wanted her to be. My two nieces are going to be my bridesmaids. Whenever I thought about my wedding, the one thing I never wanted was children in my wedding party or at my wedding period. Well, my fiance has a young grandson, and I have a grand-niece, so I'm having a ring bearer and a flower girl. I'm wearing a white dress, which I didn't think I would. The only strange question I've gotten from anyone, and it's not necessarily an "older bride" question, is if I was sad that I wouldn't have a larger wedding party.
Tell me I'm not alone out here!!
