Hello! I became a widow at the age of 36. (Married for 15years) I am now 40 and am getting married in June of 2023. This is my fiance’s second marriage however, he has been divorced for 18 years. Two questions:
1) Are we silly to have a big wedding? We both got married the first time when we were 21 and so young. My mom basically planned her dream wedding not mine.
2) Do I have to have a simple dress? I feel so silly about dress shopping. I am 40 but I dont look it. My mom loves my fiance but hates weddings and thinks Im being silly (even though Im paying for everything) help and reassurance please.
