Allow me to dust off my walker and bifocals for a moment, if you don’t mind. My latest contribution to The Broke-Ass Bride’s Real Bride series is all about being an “older bride”.
Here’s a little teaser for you, but please head on over to their page and laugh along with me, nod your head in agreement and weigh in if you feel inclined … because I think in this case, older and wiser is pretty damn good.
You’ve all read my past entries here at The Broke-Ass Bride, from the gnarly to the mushy. But today, I thought I’d weigh in as a Real Bride with the Pros and Cons of being an “older” bride. Yes, I am tackling a hot-button topic here at The Broke-Ass Bride. But before anyone gets their knickers in a twist, let me come out and say that I am 36 years old. I’ve never been married before. I have no kids. No pets. And only two long-term relationships ever (late bloomer, hi). Sorry, I don’t know y’all well enough to give you my “number.” The groom is also 36, never married, no kids, no pets. There. Now you have the facts about us. According to TheKnot’s 2013 Wedding Statistics Release from March, the average marrying ages are: Bride, 29; Groom, 31.
Happy Hump Day, y’all!
Till next time,
