It can often feel like we're only seeing the weddings of people in their 20s and 30s dominate traditional wedding media. But we're here to remind everyone (again!) that people over 40 get married too! We've been featuring the weddings of folks over 40 since the aughts, from first time weddings to second marriages to blended family weddings and even vow renewals. Since we LOVE seeing love at any age, we asked our over-40 readers on social media to share their recent weddings and added it to our round-up of weddings over 40!

That freedom came from my groom who asked “what do you think your doing?” It's a part of me–who he loves–and I should fly the colors on such a wonderful day.Read more from Tamara‘s wedding!

When the newlyweds over 40 rock colorful hair at their wedding…
Our wedding was very “Us”. Subtle Disney theme, eclectic, local, eco friendly and perfect for us. I felt like because we are both wedding vendors and that we were both older, that we knew exactly what we wanted. Our two best friends were our officiants, our son walked me down the aisle.Lil' Bean Backerei
