There is no expiration date on love! And we have been seeing evidence of that more and more here lately at StarDust and LuLu’s. Theknot.com’sReal Wedding Survey 2012 showed that the average marrying age for brides and grooms is 29 and 31, respectively. However, with the uptick in encore weddings or couples just waiting longer to tie the knot, we are enjoying seeing brides of all ages and life stages seeking our advice!
In addition to better health leading to greater longevity of life, one of the biggest contributing factors to more mature couples going all-out for their unions is the industry trend to customize and personalize weddings, which has led to an “anything goes” approach. Often in the past, older couples would either elope or just settle for a very small, low-key wedding. But no more! Couples now are savoring the opportunity to make their wedding a blow-out celebration with all of their friends and family, complete with fabulous food, over-the-top décor, amazing cakes, incredible entertainment and a show-stopping gown.
