I am a second time bride having become a widow at the age of 38 after 19 years of marriage to my first husband. Together we had 3 children, who will be 15, 18 and 20 at the time of the wedding. My fiance has also been married before....a few times....but has never had a big wedding. He has 4 children from his previous marriages. They will be 4, 11, 18 and 23. I have worked in the bridal industry pretty much my entire adult life. I started working at a small bridal shop 4 months after graduating high school. My first husband manged a tux shop (no, that's not how we met LOL We went to high school together), so even after I left the store to be a stay at home mom, I helped him out at bridal shows. After 7 years at home, and a small run at owning my own business making personalized wedding favors, I went back to working in a bridal shop, and have been doing so since. So, knowing that, you would think it's a piece of cake planning my own wedding. NOPE! It's so much pressure when it's your own..... People know what I do for a living and have already made comments about how amazing they expect my wedding will be LOL Yes, I have lots of ideas....too many ideas!!! Don't be surprised if you see me post that I am doing one thing and a week later it's something totally different!
